  1. Is this site going under? Just read that the news part of TB is getting shuttered?

      I'm seeing the comments on twitter. The news part is definitely shut down, but others are saying the whole site is shutting down?

  2. star wars comes out in a week and i haven't seen one ad for it on tv. weird huh?

      I've not seen one, either. I imagine they'll hold back since all the opening shows are sold out and start later.

      I'm liking Secrets & Lies and I'm rather surprised about that.

      Nope. I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping already.

  5. Whoever thought NaNoWriMo was a good idea? Doing it as an experiment. Holy hell, what a terrible idea. 30,000 words in and I just want to go back to writing scripts.

      There used to be an April version just for script-writing. Is that still around?

  6. Question for the legal minded members: Why would Lauren Weisberger's (presumed) confidentiality agreement with Anna Wintour/Vogue not have prevented The Devil Wears Prada from being published? And if not, of what use was the agreement (or any other such executive/assistant/intern confidentiality agreement)?

    1. CookieMonster

      CookieMonster

      Depends on the agreement, basically.

       

      Most will not allow any memoir-type book, article, etc. be written. However, most don't specifically prohibit a fictionalized account. In fact, that language would be very unusual.

       

      Most standard employee confidentiality agreements address mostly maintaining the secrecy and confidentiality of any confidential business information, not how the boss treats the underlings.

      I thought it was a solid open. I wonder if they'll keep it going for the rest of the season, though.

      I agree about the scared kid. That, to me, was the whole point. Him reliving it over and over and improving and finding his feet.

       

      Tom Cruise is fine, and with him they secured a huge budget, but I still wish they had stayed with the orginal concept.

       

      Great script.

      I knew hiring Tom Cruise would mean the story would be destroyed.

  12. K. Ryans hasn't posted much lately, anyone know whether she's still a member?

  13. The review embargo on The Counselor is starting to worry me...

      CookieMonster

      The press were all over twitter talking about it after a screening all night. Comments like "a surefire F-grade on Cinemascore" and "Whaaaat" were highlights.

  14. TBers who use tablets to read scripts on (iPad, Kindle Fire, Galaxy Tab) How has your experience been with it? Does it hurt your eyes to read off something like that for extended periods of time?

    1. CookieMonster

      I use mostly the iPad now. No problems whatsoever. I adjust the brightness to whatever level is comfortable.

  15. 'Edge of Tomorrow' (aka 'All You Need is Kill') is going back for reshoots after even more rewriting? How much are you guys planning on butchering this story?

    1. CookieMonster

      CookieMonster

      The Harper draft was excellent.

       

      The second they decided to replace the 20-something unsure kid with Tom Cruise, I lost interest in what they're going to do with the movie.

  16. So rumor floating around that Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling are being considered for Star Wars VII? Interesting...kinda used to unknowns filling the lead roles in Star Wars movies. Could work though.

      I saw that. Do they have the goods, though? I wonder. Surely they're close to getting the main cast set.

  17. They renamed 'All You Need is Kill' to "Edge of Tomorrow'? Why??

    1. CookieMonster

      CookieMonster

      Well, it was called "We Mortals All" for a while, too. I really hated that title. I don't know if this one is better or worse.

  19. My psycho-thriller has just been optioned. It's titled: "The Cuckoo's Plight”. Jim Sheridan who directed "My Left Foot" – from which Daniel Day Lewis won an academy award - is onboard as an executive producer.
