"The Banker" screenwriter Stan Younger visited the University of Pittsburgh and joined Broadcast 1 and Human Interests Stories for Broadcasting classes this past Wednesday.
"The Banker," starring Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Nia Long and Nicholas Hoult, is set in the 1960s and is based on the true story of two African American entrepreneurs, who hire a working-class white man to pretend to be the head of their business empire while they pose as a janitor and chauffer. The film's nationwide release is on Friday, March 6th.
Mr. Younger, a Pittsburgh native and Carnegie Mellon University graduate, answered questions regarding the film and the screenwriting process. Students' class assignments were based on Mr. Younger's responses.
The University of Pittsburgh's broadcast curriculum is part of the Film & Media Studies major.
