Chris Rock References Reggie During Writer’s Roundtable
As the writer of TOP FIVE, the movie he just wrote, directed and starred in, Chris Rock was part of an hour long discussion among the top writers in the movie business.
What’s the best piece of advice someone has given you about filmmaking?
MOORE I had a moment, right before we shot our movie, I talked to my friend Fred who has made a bunch of movies. “As a writer on set, what’s my job?” And he was like, “Well, there’s one simple thing you have to remember: You’re the writer on set, shut the f— up!”
ROCK [Filmmaker] Reggie Hudlin said, “Eat with the crew.” Just eat with the crew. You’ll get more out of your crew if you just eat with your crew every day.
