Re: Possible Stolen Script

Travis, contacting an attorney at this point is premature. I suggest to wait to see how many details in their execution are similar. An attorney is going to want to know this information.

The idea is for a writer to gain knowledge so a studio doesn't bring in a hired gun (as you say). A...
