Podcasting Them Softly is beyond thrilled to present a chat with the tremendous screenwriter and filmmaker Daniel Waters. His legendary writing credits include Heathers, Batman Returns, Demolition Man, Hudson Hawk, and The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, while he’s directed two features based on his own scripts — the underrated Happy Campers and the dark romantic comedy Sex & Death 101 with Simon Baker and Winona Ryder. He also collaborated with his brother Mark Waters, the director of Mean Girls, on 2014’s Vampire Academy. Daniel has one of the most unique and idiosyncratic voices to ever work in the big-budget blockbuster arena, and clearly Heathers is an eternal classic that so many generations of audiences have latched onto as a key title. We hope you enjoy this informative and passionate discussion about Hollywood, the art of screenwriting, and our collective love for movies in general. And hey, maybe you’ll finally find out what those three seashells in Demolition Man were really meant for!
