I’m Eric Heisserer, writer/exec producer of ARRIVAL, Ask Me Anything
Hello Reddit, I’m Eric Heisserer and I adapted Ted Chiang’s short story “Story Of Your Life” for the big screen. I then spent a decade getting the film made with production company 21 Laps. That film, now known as “Arrival” stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner and is directed by Denis Villeneuve. It hits theaters on November 11th. Ask me Anything!
EDIT: Thank you so much! I'm being shuttled off to some interview now but I will try and get back to unanswered questions later.
