Have you ever dreamed of turning that life ruining, soul crushing relationship into the next indie blockbuster? Before Zooey Deschanel became the symbol of the girl you never get over and Joseph Gordon-Levitt became a leading everyman, there was Scott Neustadter, who lived his own ""(500) Days of Summer" on which his film was based. He's just penned the "The Spectacular Now", a romantic comedy about an alcoholic high school senior and his love for the girl next door. Scott will share his secrets for elevating personal pain into the universal and much more in this one-hour discussion. Joining him is "The Spectacular Now" Producer Tom McNulty ("Date Night"), who will talk about the process of bringing the project from script to screen. Heartbreak and trip to IKEA not included.
