WELL NOBODY'S PERFECT Ep. 41: Set Phasers to Delighted: A Conversation with Nicholas Meyer
The man who wrote The Wrath of Khan. 'Nuff said.
This week Rob and Geoff pick apart the trailer for Martin Scorsese's upcoming film Silence (1:30), predict the impact of Netflix's new 'download' feature (6:10), and wonder why on earth Adam McKay wants to make a film about Dick Cheney (8:35).
Then, the two boldly go where no podcast has gone before, as they sit down with filmmaker Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, Time After Time) to talk about why he enjoys working in 'fan fiction' (13:00), why he originally had no interest in Star Trek (28:00), the trick to writing a screenplay in 12 days (34:30), and why he blocked working with Gene Roddenberry from his memory (38:05).
