He did an interview for RLM and he said that in Hollywood - you can write a great script but it will go thru many un-credited rewrites before it ends up on screen.

So you can get blamed for a lousy script for which you are credited but is nothing like what you originally wrote.

My friend's dad went through the same thing with the movie Hollywoodland. He wrote it more about George Reeves but the studio took the script it turned it into a movie centered more on the detective which had a lot of parts written by another writer.

On the opposite end he also had his name put on a movie that he was brought into salvage and with his rewrite they ended up crediting him as a lead writer even though he was just there to save a movie there was no hope in saving.

Bottom line is being a lesser known screenwriter in Hollywood seems to be miserable.

I have no interest in a remake of American Werewolf in London. I can't believe that Landis is involved.  That's a terrible idea.  The original is perfect.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

That's the weird thing.  Landis has TONS of original ideas.  Not sure why he would think this a worthy enterprise.  Knowing that the final product will be compared to his dad's original.  That's a lose/lose proposition.

He must have been high when he had this idea.

Maybe he was given a good offer by the studio for it.

Maybe the movie was going ahead regardless, and he figured better him than someone else.

So Flatliners is getting a remake. Starring that oh so charismatic Diego Luna from Rogue One and Ellen Page.

I like the original Flatliners much more than I thought I would.  But you got Kiefer, Bacon, Julie Roberts, Oliver Platt, and others, all younger but already kickass versions of themselves later, and you don't care that the story makes no sense.  The acting makes it work.  I'll check out the remake eventually I'm sure, but not really in any hurry.  Ha!

It'll probably be just a schlocky horror movie with ghosts and jump scares.

Oh and it'll probably bomb.

Speaking of the Harry Potter Universe.

Not only is there 5 films in the fantastic beasts franchise planned.

But there's now a rumour that WB want to turn The Cursed Child into YEP a new HP trilogy with Grint, Radcliffe & Watson.

Warner Brothers allegedly want it to be " Harry Potter : The Force Awakens "

I bet JK Rowling's bank manager is very happy.

Rowling shot down the Cursed Child rumors. Won't be movies.

She didn't need it before she agreed to turn a pamphlet into a QUINTOLOGY either....

That's different.  She had the idea for the story, and decided the story needed to be told on film.  So that's happening.

With Cursed Child, she felt that needed to be a play, so that's what it is.  If she doesn't want it to be a film, it won't be, and money won't be a tempter to change her mind, because she already has all the money in the world.

She obviously had no problem with Fantastic Beasts being *FIVE* films when the "book" is nothing more than a notebook.

Not sure what your point is.

The "book" wasn't a story at all.  When she came up with the story for it later for the film, she decided it would be a story spread over 5 films.  She didn't do that for money, either.

Cursed Child has always been a story.

Danny McBride is writing the new new "Halloween" reboot.

I'm confused by this.
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?

I saw a trailer for a movie (based on a book) called Before I Fall. It's basically a dark Groundhog Day.

I love time loop movies and TV episodes. Sure it's nothing new, but they're always fun to watch.
