A pretty pathetic deal when juxtaposed against the DGA's. Nice to know writers are still considered the red-headed stepchildren of the entertainment industry.... :rolleyes

I heard the whole $58 million is being split by David Koepp and Steven Zaillian.

I didn't realize that Koepp and Zaillian agreed to such a hefty pay cut.
