Roth On Benjamin Button

For everyone interested in the writing and development of David Fincher's "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button" I have found this great, one hour long interview with screenwriting legend Eric Roth.

The interview was conducted by the folks at Creative Screenwriting Magazine, and therefore it is truly an in depth look at the writing process behind this epic story. Roth talks a lot about working with the directors, ranging from Robert Zemeckis ("Forrest Gump"), Michael Mann ("The Insider") and Steven Spielberg ("Munich") to David Fincher.

For screenwriters this is an absolute MUST-HEAR... for everyone else this is certainly a very decent "Benjamin Button" extra!

Here it is:
