      “How does this trash even get made?” said Katherine Hubbard, a mother of three from Rockford, IL, who, after buying tickets for the Pixar film Inside Out, was incensed that her children had been exposed to original storytelling.

      "Out of a 100,000 90% are trash." Which would leave ~10,000, so the question becomes what happens to THESE scripts/writers. If the 62 scripts being sold are all from those writers who are already connected does it even matter if we discover the unknown "Bob Dylan?"

  8. How many specs sold in 2014? I'm guessing 74.

      Please god don't trust Go into the story for spec sale counts. Haha! Seriously though... they were off by almost 100 last year, and like 75 the year before. Please don't use that as a reference point. Wait for the TB guys to get a final tally, and then for everyone else to steal their stats like last year!

      Eh, well... I'm not sold on the idea that what he did was plagiarism, but that aside, that sure was a stupid way for him to respond to the accusations.

      It's like a non-denial denial. [Footnote: All The President's Men]

      Agreed. Regardless of what he said he should have at the VERY least given credit to Ligotti. It's embarrassing that he doesn't even mention him.

      Of course Pizzolatto read Pizzolatto - he says exactly that in interviews and has stated that his writing was influential in the show. In fact, he's tells people in interviews to go read Ligotti's books.



    3. sbbn


      Plagiarism is a fuzzy thing in literary works. It's not a simple as "oh, he used lines from such and such (which happens all the time in books and films). As far as I am aware, True Det. is not a plot lifted or characters taken directly from Pizzolatto's books - it's a character who quotes from books that influenced his philosophy on the way he sees the world (which is a very human thing to do).

    4. sbbn


      If the character was only quoting Shakespeare and each time saying "and this, by the way, is a direct quote from a writer known as Shakespeare" no one would give a damn. But it would be pretty stupid.


  11. Quick Q: Your favorite movie of all time? P&T

  12. At this rate, there will be around 70 specs sold this year.- From BL: "Sony Pictures Entertainment acquires science fiction spec script “Leviathan” written by Cole Haddon. Haddon is repped by WME and Anonymous Content. By my count, this is the 30th spec script sale of 2014. There were 53 spec script sales year-to-date in 2013."
