Special Guest Mike Rich
Mike Rich's screenwriting breakthrough came in 1998 when his script "Finding Forrester" was honored by the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship competition. Within weeks it was picked up by Columbia Pictures and was a holiday season release just two years later, starring Sean Connery and directed by Gus Van Sant. Mike's second screenplay "The Rookie," starred Dennis Quaid and Rachel Griffiths, resulting in both a commercial and critical success for Disney in 2002. The following year, Mike wrote the script for "Radio," starring Ed Harris, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Debra Winger.

He has been a contributing writer on "Miracle," "Eight Below," and "Invincible."  Mike's works also include "The Nativity Story” and “Secretariat,” a Disney film which was released in 2010. In 2017, for the first time in his writing career, he worked in animation, writing the screenplay for Pixar’s Cars 3. And just last year, he wrote his first novel: a middle-grade book titled “Skavenger’s Hunt.”
