The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “Challengers” Screenwriter Justin Kuritzkes

Challengers” was initially supposed to have its world premiere at the 2023 Venice International Film Festival before it was delayed to the spring of 2024 due to the 2023 Hollywood strikes. Now, Luca Guadagnino’s latest is finally coming to theaters this weekend, starring Zendaya, Josh O’Connor, and Mike Faist. Screenwriter Justin Kuritzkes was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about his inspiration for the film, some of the choices he made with the characters and narrative structure, his support for his wife, Celine Song, during her awards season run for “Past Lives,” a tease for his next collaboration with Guadgnino on “Queer” starring Daniel Craig and more. Please be sure to check out the film, and be careful as there is one question (there’s a warning before it’s asked) during the interview, which is a spoiler. Thank you, and enjoy!
