E. Max Frye is the Emmy-nominated screenwriter of the HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers”. He and Dan Futterman (Oscar nominated for 2005’s “Capote”) co-wrote the Steve Carell/Channing Tatum sports drama “Foxcatcher”, out November 14th. But as Frye explains to me in this LCJ INTERVIEW (link here), the two never worked together on the film. He also talks about director Bennett Miller (“Moneyball”) recruiting Tatum, the year-long release delay, and the Awards Season ahead.
