CURIOUS ABOUT SCREENWRITING - PODCASTS

Suicide Squad: Script Soup with Jacob Krueger (ISA Sponsored)

Posted: Aug 30, 2016 Hosted By: Jacob Krueger

The biggest problem with Suicide Squad is not Jared Leto's method acting antics. It's not the egos of all the many stars that were involved. It's not even the many places where the logic of the script just doesn't make sense.

 

The real problem with Suicide Squad is the problem of too many good ideas.

 

This is actually one of the most common things that we see in screenplays: too many good ideas. And when you get attached to having too many good ideas what ends up happening is that all the ideas end up suffering.

 

So what's the difference between too many good ideas and too few? And how do know if you're building ideas that are going to work together, and build together structurally, so you can avoid ending up with script soup?
