I found this great interview with our friend Philippa Boyens in the latest issue of Creative Screenwriting magazine. (Bill Condon is on the cover. BTW – Bill Condon is the talented writer/director who made the film “Gods and Monsters” starring Sir Ian McKellen.)

In the interview Phil discusses the collaborative effort she shared in writing “The Lord of the Rings.” The article focuses on “The Two Towers,” but includes information about FOTR and “The Return of the King.”

If you haven’t read the book yet, there are some serious spoilers in the article. Philippa explores the differences between the book and the films, and comments on her approaches to character development. She even discusses “The Empire Strikes Back.”

Noro Lim!
