Grantland and Craig Brewer

Grantland has an interview it’s posted with Memphis filmmaker Craig Brewer. Writer Rembert Browne wrote that he sought out Brewer after being encouraged to do so from radio host Chris Vernon, Memphis Grizzlies COO Jason Wexler and editorial director Spencer Hall.

Some excerpts:

Brewer says Memphis is “the one place” where he feels creative.

He’d “love to tell the story of Stax Records.”

“I’ll fall on my sword for this city.”

“When the Grizzlies and the whole ‘Whoop that Trick’ thing happened, I think there was an attitude shift where nobody wanted to apologize for being (from) Memphis anymore.”
