On this bonus episode of The Black List Table Reads with Franklin Leonard, we hear about the the story of Nightingale. On May 29th, Nightingale premiered on HBO. It was written by Frederick Mensch, directed by Elliott Lester, and stars David Oyelowo. It’s special to the Black List because it was the first movie made from a screenplay discovered on the Black List website. Frederick Mensch, Elliott Lester, and David Oyelowo join Franklin in studio for a special conversation on how Nightingale came into existence.
