This week, John is a bit under the weather, so Craig takes over moderator duties as they tackle four listener questions:
➤ When you spec a script based on a producer's idea, who owns it?
➤ And on that topic, do producers ever really buy an idea?
➤ How much divine intervention or other coincidence can a movie support?
➤ How do pen names work for screenwriters?
In follow-up, Clive Barker is writing but not directing that Amazon Studios project. John regrets the error. And in verb-related news, metal can't pound, but it can pound flat, oddly enough.
All this and two cool things in this week's Scriptnotes.
