Empire Interview: Screenwriter - Lawrence Kasdan

"How different is the Leigh Brackett draft from what ended up being shot?

There's nothing. There's no connection. You know, George is a better one to answer that question, but I never looked at it that seriously. We didn't work from that. He said, "God bless her, but she wasn't doing anything like I wanted it." She had written some great movies. But I don't think they were ever on the same page about Empire. I think George hired her because of her extraordinary history. But what George needs, and particularly in Star Wars, is someone who's going to do what he had in mind -- make it happen.

You're used to being in creative control these days. Was it difficult being more of a hired hand, making someone else's vision happen?"
