Wow, Writers Guild of America West is pulling out all the stops for its upcoming Beyond Words panel. All are HUGE talent as well as nominated screenwriters this year for the WGA award.

Here’s the confirmed slate thus far:

Confirmed screenwriters scheduled to appear include: Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Tom Ford (Nocturnal Animals), Eric Heisserer (Arrival), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea), Jeff Nichols (Loving), Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool), and Allison Schroeder and Theodore Melfi (Hidden Figures), and Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water). Writers Guild Award and Oscar-nominated screenwriter and WGAW Board of Directors member Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton) will moderate the panel discussion.


Beyond Words will be held at the WGA Theater in Beverly Hills on February 9.

7:30 p.m.         Panel Discussion + Q&A
9:00 p.m.         Post-Panel Dessert Reception


Is Kenneth Lonergan as depressing as his movies? Is Tom Ford as hot in person as his name is? You can buy your tickets here. UPDATE Tickets are already sold out!!! And why shouldn’t it be? Amazing!
