Most writers have no idea how to make a film. It’s a totally different skill set. Nor is it just to translate exactly what’s on the page directly on to the screen – because that would be terrible. It would be five hours long, and the structure would be a mess. But the writers know the characters and the story.
– Gayle Forman
