BPS 081: Screenwriting for Schwarzenegger & Stallone with Miles Chapman

Today on the show we have Miles Chapman, the screenwriter behind the successful action franchise Escape Plan starring the legendary Sylvester Stallone. The premise was simple but great.

When a structural-security authority finds himself set up and incarcerated in the world’s most secret and secure prison, he has to use his skills to escape with help from the inside.

Then add Sly and another legend, Arnold Schwarzenegger to the mix and you have action nirvana. Miles and I discuss how the project came to be, some extremely entertaining stories from the set and what it was like working with legends.

The first Escape Plan was such a big international hit that the producers spawn off to more sequels, which Miles wrote as well.

Enjoy my conversation with Miles Chapman.
