Kirsten Smith & Karen McCullah Lutz, Screenwriters

Kirsten and Karen are the most successful women’s screenwriting team of all time. They are the pens that launched a thousand acting careers. Their other films include Legally Blonde, She’s the Man, The House Bunny, The Ugly Truth, and Ella Enchanted. Heath Ledger, Reese Witherspoon, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Anne Hathaway, and Emma Stone all had their breakout roles at the hands of this screenwriting duo.

The Script to Screen series examines screenwriting and how the screenplay is translated into film. In the series, guest writers reveal their creative storytelling process, actors discuss how they breathe life into the scripted characters, and directors explore the transformation of a script into a visual story for the screen.
