________________________________________________________________________Skoog said in a release, “Tony Gilroy is one of the finest and most prolific screenwriters working in Hollywood today, and his films are always smart, complex, and enormously entertaining. Gilroy’s scripts have been reading assignments for my students for many years, and I’m beyond thrilled to have our students get the chance talk to him.” The dialogue is part of the School of Communication and Media’s Colloquium series.
