Zak Penn and Simon Kinberg interview

X-Men: The Last Stand scripters Zak Penn and Simon Kinberg never knew they'd work together on the final installment of the hit 20th Century Fox franchise, and they certainly never dreamed they'd finish it together. “We had never met before X-Men 3,” explains Kinberg, who burst into the biz with last year's Mr. and Mrs. Smith (his thesis at Columbia Film School). “The studio did something that studios do with large, tent-pole movies on a tight schedule, which is, they hire more than one writer to write different drafts simultaneously and eventually hire another writer to cut and paste that together and another and on and on.”
