MY GRAVITY LAWSUIT AND HOW IT AFFECTS EVERY WRITER WHO SELLS TO HOLLYWOOD

Highly disturbing:

This is alarming on many levels, and the principles involved go far beyond my individual lawsuit. Every writer who sells film rights to Hollywood must now contend with the possibility that the studio they signed the contract with could be swallowed up by a larger company — and that parent company can then make a movie based on your book without compensating you. It means Hollywood contracts are worthless.

Chris Rock: “It’s a White Industry”

Originally posted on Lucas 2012 Infos:

On this edition of Film, Literature and the New World Order James Perloff, author of The Shadows of Power and Truth Is A Lonely Warrior, joins us to discuss the 1970 Hollywood/Japanese production, Tora, Tora Tora! We discuss Perloff’s recent article on the Pearl Harbor deception, “Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt’s 9/11″ and the pieces of the Pearl Harbor puzzle that the movie leaves out. We get into the details of where the movie came from and how it paints Pearl Harbor as a tragic accident rather than a devious deception.

Does Hollywood sell harmless Californication, or something much more sinister?

Best part, from a Vanity Fair quote:

It’s known that the Armed Forces objected to 13 Days, which was about the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis, and withheld cooperation. They were incensed by the depiction of the late General Curtis LeMay, who clashed with President John F. Kennedy and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, feeling they were too “soft.” LeMay later described the incident, which Kennedy’s deft handling of probably prevented the deaths of millions, as “the greatest defeat in our history.”

13 Days is an excellent film that I haven’t reviewed here. It should be required viewing.


And shit, my novel HELL OF A DEAL takes on these topics in a frontal assault.
