Tony Gilroy Screenwriting Podcast Special
From The Devil's Advocate to Bourne (and back)

Tony Gilroy is an Oscar-nominated screenwriter, the pen wielder behind the original Bourne trilogy and his own directorial work, such as Michael Clayton (which got him his Oscar nod), Duplicity and, most recently, The Bourne Legacy.

In town for a special BAFTA and BFI screenwriters' lecture series - click this way for more on that front, from Hossein Amini to David S. Goyer - we asked Gilroy to drop by the Empire Podcast booth afterwards to talk about how he battles writers' block and brings his ideas to the big screen. Look forward to details on the future of the Bourne franchise, his take on the current state of play in Hollywood, and why Michael Clayton wouldn't get made today.

In fact, if you haven't watched Michael Clayton already, you may want to jump forward about five minutes from around about the 20 minute mark to avoid spoilers. Even better, you could just go watch Michael Clayton first, as it's well worth your time.
