Get to know writer Marc W. Johnson:
1. What is your screenplay about?
After a werewolf slaughters the family of a pregnant newlywed and she loses her child, she becomes a cold-hearted hunter and uncovers it’s her best friend.
2. Why should this screenplay be turned into a movie?
Because in my humble opinion, there hasn’t been a decent werewolf movie that ties the Grimm Fairytale of Red Riding Hood to the present day, and who doesn’t want to see an action packed werewolf movie with swords, guns and gore.
3. How would you describe this story in one sentence?
Buffy meets Dog Soldiers.
4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?
That’s kind of a toss-up between Halloween (’78) Halloween II (’81), and Aliens. I love how the two Halloweens blend together, you can’t really watch one without the other, and Aliens, well, you got aliens, space marines, and firepower, what’s not to love.
5. How long have you been working on this screenplay?
Well, all screenplays, even “finished” ones are works in progress but, I have been working, and reworking this screenplay for about 3 years.
6. How many stories have you written?
To date, I have written two feature screenplays and three short screenplays.
7. What motivated you to write this screenplay?
I wanted to write an action packed werewolf movie with heart.
8. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?
While working on this screenplay I attend college full time.
9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
Meat and peanut M&M’s: honestly though, family and friends.
10. What influenced you to enter the WILDsound Festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?
I had heard rumors the feedback was genuine, and it did NOT disappoint. It helped me get to what you are about to watch and enjoy! Thanks for that WILDsound!
11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?
Well, there are probably more experienced writers out there than I am at the moment and, as my granddad used to say “Free advice is worth what you pay for it.” However, at this point in my own journey, all I can be comfortable saying is – Always be open to feedback, and sleep on it before accepting it as gospel, or totally dismissing it. This is the only way you will become skilled as to whether those giving it know what they are doing.
