Andrew Lanham will discuss his screenwriting career with Ben Snyder, the Dramatic Writing Coordinator for St. Francis College's MFA Program, as the latest guest in the College's "Write in Brooklyn" discussion series.

Lanham penned the screenplay for Just Mercy, the 2019 release starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx based on the bestselling memoir by lawyer Bryan Stevenson chronicling his pathbreaking work to seek justice for people wrongfully convicted.

Along with Destin Daniel Cretton, Lanham adapted the screenplay for 2017 film version of Jeanette Walls' memoir The Glass Castle, which starred Naomi Watts, Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson.

One of Variety's 10 Screenwriters to Watch in 2019, Lanham is currently adapting David Arnold's The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik for Paramount Pictures.

An Evening With Andrew Lanham is produced by "Write in Brooklyn," a St. Francis College MFA discussion series with prominent writers from a range of genres. Prior participants include Dominique Morisseau, the Tony-nominated book-writer of the Broadway smash musical Ain't Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations, young adult novelist Jason Reynolds, author/actor Amber Tamblyn, and screenwriter/playwright Seth Zvi Rosenfeld.

Interviewer Ben Snyder is also an accomplished screenwriter. He co-wrote and co-directed 11:55, a 2016 release with Julia Stiles and John Leguizamo that is currently available on-demand. He served as the story consultant for the award-winning documentary The Wolfpack. His plays have been produced at P.S. 122, The Vineyard Theater, Crossroads Theatre, The Apollo Theater, New York Stage and Film, and at HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.
