An Interview with Screenwriter Jonathan Hensleigh.
Jonathan Hensleigh knows good action. This former attorney stopped practicing law to pursue screenwriting, and with his big break writing episodes of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" for Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, his foray into the action/adventure genre began. After writing the screenplay for "Die Hard: With a Vengeance", he worked on such films as "Jumanji", "The Saint", "Armageddon" and "The Rock". Hensleigh also wrote and directed the film adaptation of Marvel Comics' "The Punisher", for which he is also writing the sequel. In this no-holds-barred interview, learn his approach to developing action scenes, how the attorney in him comes out in his writing and what he really thinks about screenwriting classes.
