Scripting BOM

  • Terry McNavage


A while ago, I worked a scene in the Russell Crowe and Liam Neeson film The Next Three Days. Probably the thing that surprised me most was how dynamic things were on set. Paul Haggis, who won two Oscars for Crash, kept reworking the content of the scene, especially the timing; he must have had Jason Beghe (Detective Quinn) run out of every single door in the precinct and say, “We found his son!” each time. Oftentimes Haggis would tell us what to do just moments before filming another take. Needless to say, having a good short-term memory was vital.
