Zachary Leeman chats with Johnny Sullivan, screenwriter of Fear of the Dark, The Prophecy: Uprising, The Prophecy: Forsaken and Recoil...

Zachary Leeman: Let’s start by breaking down how you started in the business? How did you first become a paid screenwriter? Explain the hustle to me and to aspiring screenwriters that may be reading this.

John Sullivan: Growing up, I thought I wanted to be a novelist. I read voraciously. My addictions were mostly Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Herbert and the occasional Tom Clancy actioner. I was a little too young to understand the political thrillers, but I tried. I attempted a few half-written books, and they were terrible. It wasn’t until I was 14 or so that I understood what a screenwriter did. I was an enormous movie fan. 

I never played sports, I wasn’t incredibly social and so I watched 2-3 movies a day. »
