    I just got this in the mail:

    I think the whole affair was a flop. I wonder how many outsider screenplays they even developed? I was angry when I saw show after show they produced was penned by the usual Hollywood "royalty" -- Woody Alan, Ridley Scott, actors, actresses, all the same industry people -- I think it was all just a big show: "Look we're the outsider!" when all they ever wanted to be was the "insider."

    Good riddens to their phony baloney something-new/outsider status.

  4. Studios hate this idea - they won't even look at unsolicited scripts unless a known agent, producer or actor is pushing it. Mostly because they get sued if movie X borrows elements from a script they saw before.

    They thought it was a typo - "Bozos Taking Over The World!"

    They dropped the IMDb message board. Things are getting tight I guess.
