Michael Lewis was recently interviewed by New York magazine’s Vulture during the premier of The Blind Side in NYC.
Would it be a good movie? I didn’t think about that. And I really am pleased with how it turned out. When I met John Lee Hancock, I just thought, This is a good soul. You meet a lot of people in the movie business who say they’re writers who are not writers. And when I met him, I just thought he had the sensibility of a writer. And I think it’s a good thing when the writer is directing it, too, so it’s one vision. He didn’t have any interest at all in what I thought, except he’s polite, so he pretends to have an interest. He just does his own thing, and I thought that was a really good thing, too.
