Smile Re: First right of refusal

Good. I never thought of RoFR or First Look as an offer coming out of nowhere for no consideration. As Pardack said, this was usually an agreement between a producer and the studio that housed them...

Re: 50 Shades of Grey

The article does not draw any conclusions about a link between pornography and sex trafficking.

Re: Is it worth it?

Sounds like you should buy your manager a cup of coffee. What good are they if they can't help you get a lawyer or weigh in on whether it's worth it? OTOH, consider he (or she) may have a conflict of...

Re: Writing a period piece w/o mentioning the year?

Nobody drives a K-car unless it's the 80s. Brick mobile phones, early Madonna also do the trick. If there's something specific to your location, even better.

Re: But Seriously Do Diverse Casts

Exactly! People argue that there are no solutions, then trash diversity programs and try to squelch discussions that raise awareness. Go figure.

Anyway, for the guy who suggests the DDP pros left...

Re: How I learned to structure my screenplays by studying tons of movies

Hans Gruber, learning how to teach is as difficult as anything else. If that's your new passion, this probably isn't the place to start. OTOH, since you have mastered a method to get you writing...

Re: SONY's Amy Pascal steps down but gets producer deal w/studio.

Re: FLASHBACKS- In or out?

Use FLASHBACK or don't, just make it clear. And note that it can create a slightly different experience for the reader. I thought "Wild" was beautiful and had the most seamless use of flashbacks in...

Re: Ghostbusters Reboot Cast Yah or Nay?

Bingo! Women are still a commodity. A token amount would be acceptable. Fanboys feel so threatened these days. Unbelievable.

Re: Director wants to share writing credit question

The bigger question to me is, why wasn't this film produced under a WGA contract? It was not some micro-budget, no-name indie producers involved.
