It’s hard to believe screenwriter Alex Tse once thought he didn’t “get” film theory. One half of the screenwriting duo behind 2009’s Watchmen, it’s easy to see that Tse “gets” it. We recently caught up with Tse to ask him a few questions about on his screenwriting background, his next project (his directorial debut ’87 Fleer), and how speaking with a scientist can help the writing process.
Tell us about your background. Why did you become a screenwriter?
