A recipe for a Hollywood movie – Tony Gilroy Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes)

HollywoodBig ideas don’t work. Start with a very small idea that you can build on.

With Bourne I never read any of the books; we started again. The very smallest thing with [Jason] Bourne was, “If I don’t know who I am and I don’t know where I’m from, perhaps I can identify who I am by what I know how to do.” We built a whole new world around that small idea.

You just start small, you build out and you move one step after the next and that’s how you write a Hollywood movie.
