Guthrie alumni actor John Carroll Lynch teamed up with Screenwriters' Workshop in May to read the script he co-authored with Tess Clark "Remember Minnesota." You all know John from his roles in FARGO and most recently ZODIAC. In the interview with FOX9, Brad Melby and Lynch talk about their plan to shoot the film in Minnesota in 2008.

Through the ScriptNight reading at the Ritz, the Workshop provides audiences, writers and actors with the opportunity to hear scripts in development read by professional actors and to gain insight prior to the film going into production. ScriptNight is presented on major stages including the Ritz Theater and the Guthrie Theaters new Dowling Lab, where works-in-progress are read.

The reading at the Ritz was produced by Robb Mitchell and Michael Maupin and featured a stellar cast including Mike Rylander, Stephen Pelinski, Bob Davis, Sara Marsh, Jonas Goslow, Maren Bush, Steve Yoakam, Sally Wingert, Brandon Ewald, Andrew Hovelson, and Sue Scott.

The reading of "Remember Minnesota" was made possible with financial contributions from Fredrikson & Byron, Ameriprise Financial, and the Minnesota Film and TV Board and with rooms provided our guests by Marriott Towne Place Suites.
