‘Hurricane’ sweeps up Scripters

USC to honor scribes

The University of Southern California has bestowed its 12th annual Scripter Award on “The Hurricane,” honoring the pic as the year’s best film adaptation of a book.

What is unique about “The Hurricane” screenplay is that scribes Armyan Bernstein and Dan Gordon adapted the story from two sources, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter’s autobiography, “The Sixteenth Round,” and Sam Chaiton and Terry Swinton’s “Lazarus and the Hurricane: The Untold Story of the Freeing of Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter.”

Kudos will be cast on Carter, Chaiton, Swinton, Bernstein and Gordon in the form of Crystal Book Awards, March 4 at the Scripter black-tie dinner at Union Station.

Past Scripter winners have included “A Civil Action,” “L.A. Confidential,” and “The English Patient.”
