Episode 419: Minority Report (2002)

Special Guest: Scott Frank
Guest Co-Hosts: Corinne Luz, Tim Luz

We conclude the second part of our conversation about adaptations with a conversation about Minority Report (2002). Believe it or not but this is the first time we’ve directly discussed a film directed by Steven Spielberg on the show! The film stars Tom Cruise as John Anderton, the chief of the country’s first pre-crime division where he and his team arrest people before they commit the crimes prognosticated by a trio of psychics. When the psychics pick him as the perpetrator of an impending murder, Anderton begins to question the validity of the pre-crime system.

Tim and Corinne Luz of the Cinemaspection podcast join Mike to discuss the film. Screenwriter talks about his work on the film as well as his work on The Wolverine, Logan, The Lookout, Hoke, and more.
