WriteLikeCody.com has a nice interview with Lorene Scafaria the screenwriter of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist where she talks about a multitude of things including the genesis of her career, her music projects and a certain New York Times article about The Fempire (comprised of her, Diablo Cody, Dana Fox and Liz Meriwether).
"It came across like we all think we're so cool when really we're four self-loathers who keep each other from being cutters. Our full name was "Fempire Strikes Back" but somehow it got shortened. If nothing else, we really are such good friends and in a world of not many female screenwriters (for whatever reason), having them to read stuff and ask advice and make each other feel better when the internet says otherwise, it's truly invaluable."
"I've written 16 [screenplays] to date, been paid for 10 of those, and only one was made into a film. It's amazing how much you can have a career and still not much real output."
Scafaria is currently working on a new adaptation of Bye Bye Birdie for Sony along with an original project.
"I'm also writing a script I'm doing to direct called Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World. It's a romantic comedy set just before the apocalypse. We're still in the early stages of casting right now so hopefully it'll see the light of day... before the end of days."
