Craig and John take a look at one investor’s campaign against Sony Pictures, and George Clooney’s strong reaction. From there, we examine why studios have multiple labels — TriStar is back! — and how that affects writers.
It’s also time for another round of Three Page Challenges. We tackle at three entries, ranging from desert dystopias to urban wastelands to magical westerns.
