Will Fetters Admits There Was A Method To The Madness Of Rewriting ‘A Star Is Born’

will-fetters-a-star-is-born-sliceIn theaters soon, screenwriter WILL FETTERS’ big-screen adaptation of NICHOLAS SPARKS’ bestselling novel THE LUCKY ONE, stars ZAC EFRON and TRACY SCHILLING as star-crossed lovers. It’s not FETTERS’ first time at the romantic rodeo: he wrote the 2010 tear-jerker REMEMBER ME and just turned in his script (to director CLINT EASTWOOD) for the planned remake of the classic show biz love story A STAR IS BORN. Trying to rewrite one of the most iconic stories in romantic film history may sound like a crazy idea but, during our recent interview, FETTERS admitted that, in the movie biz, sometimes you have to give a little to take a little.

“DEATH BECOMES THEM” – A BOOK OF NOTABLE SUICIDES

deathbecomesthem

Author Alix Strauss has taken pains to insure that her book, Death Becomes Them, isn’t just your average celeb suicide chronicle.

As a matter of fact, Strauss kicks off her stories in the throws of the deed, but then analyzes all the moves leading up to that point.

The notable deaths range from writers Virginia Woolf and Ernest Hemingway to rocker Kurt Cobain and the father of modern psychiatry, Sigmund Freud. All troubled, some less silent about their suicidal intentions.

Still, Strauss has produced a more detailed account and takes pride in delivering precisely what has been lacking in other narratives.

Plus, it’s a bloody-good read.

Death Becomes Them just landed on store shelves today.
