Some of the press are making this sound like a big deal, but as a rookie with the industry even I know that this happens fairly often. So where might you have seen his writing? Closer, Notes on a Scandal and Asylum. I haven’t seen any of them, but he can’t be too bad of a writer – he was nominated for an Oscar, 2 Golden Globes and 2 BAFTA’s.
I think this will be a good thing for the movie, and not as big of a deal as some are making it sound.
