Overview

Something of a neophyte writer in Hollywood at the time of this film's production, Simon Kinberg first "broke through" to the mainstream with his script for XXX: State of the Union (2005). He then turned one of his own college projects into a Tinseltown blockbuster by authoring Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) and evinced a deft hand for bringing comics to the big screen with his script for X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). Now, in the release The Dialogue: Learning from the Masters - Simon Kinberg, Kinberg speaks to aspiring scriptwriters about his insights gleaned from several years in the industry, including what provides him with deep inspiration for his scripts and the most valuable lessons that he never picked up in film school.
