Boaz Yakin Takes Us Inside ‘Jerusalem’

Watch: Boaz Yakin On Jerusalem

Writer and filmmaker Boaz Yakin sat down to tell us about his new graphic novel, from First Second Books, “Jerusalem.” Yakin chose to tell the story of his family who have been living in Jerusalem since the 1890s. He told us, “I wanted to capture the spirit and the mood of what they experienced in the ’40s. It was a pretty tumultuous and defining period there.”

Yakin also shed light on writing the new, magic-caper film “Now You See Me” and one of his earliest gigs, writing the ill-fated (though kind of awesome) Dolph Lundgren-starring “Punisher” movie.
