Lorene Scafaria Career
After moving to New York City, Scafaria wrote and put up a play at the Producer’s Club Theatre called That Guy and Others Like Him, in which she also played a role. She also had a small role in the acclaimed short film, Bullet in the Brain, winner of nine festivals and produced by CJ Follini.
Still, her writing agent had yet to find her a job, and so she took on more acting roles, appearing in many theater productions in addition to the films Big Helium Dog and A Million Miles, among others. She sent out queries to twenty different agents, seeking representation, one of whom replied and asked Scafaria to move from New York to Los Angeles.
Even though she did not anticipate real success with the agent, she moved out and became roommates with screenwriter Bryan Sipe, whom she had met making a film in New Jersey earlier. Neither of their work was considered “commercial” enough by studios, so they paired up to write a children’s adventure film called Legend Has It. Revolution Studios bought the screenplay but asked for a re-write which Scafaria described as “far less interesting”, and the project was ultimately shelved.
In early 2005, Scafaria was hired by Focus Features to adapt Rachel Cohn and David Levithan’s book Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist into a film of the same name. The screenplay was her ninth, but her first adaptation. She is good friends with fellow writers Diablo Cody (Juno), Dana Fox (What Happens in Vegas), and Liz Meriwether (No Strings Attached) with whom she collaborates in their writing group they call the “Fempire”.

She wrote Iraqi war docudrama Sweet Relief for Paramount Pictures and The Mighty Flynn, a spec script which she set up at Warner Brothers. She has also written Man and Wife, which Gabriele Muccino is attached to direct.
