Cameron Crowe recently sat down with Variety to reflect on Fast Times at Ridgemont High in celebration of its upcoming 35th anniversary on August 13th. He wrote the script for the film (which was based on his 1981 book of the same name), and it was ultimately directed by Amy Heckerling (Clueless, Look Who’s Talking). Before, Heckerling was chosen, however, the studio was open to a variety of different candidates for the project. read more
