Tell me about it! This stupid strike has gone on long enough! Wa longer than i really thought it would. It boggles my mind that they say they were <this close> to coming to an agreement when the strike first happened, yet it's now 3 months later almost and still nothing!

I heard this on NPR this morning.

VK, is Glen going to be doing the revisions on the script... or is TWC going to be bringing in another writer to revise/polish?

Also, another quick question regarding Glen and the script... there were rumors about three or four years ago that he had written a KR film script... would this be his current script, or has he written several over the years?

d_osborn,

Yes, Glen will be revising the script changes for the feature film, he has considerable creative control over the project. This script is brand new and has no relation to the other scripts that have come before it, where ever the project has been set up in the past. His newest script which was turned in and complete by the WGA deadline will now no longer be the final script as revisions are addressed and made to produce the shooting script that TWC and Glen are satisfied with. The older script isn't being thrown out entirely, just parts of it reworked and polished to get it where it needs to be.

Good news that the deal has been signed between TWC and the WGA, very good news indeed.

This is great news! Thanks for clearing that matter, with the script revisions, up VK. Once again you have come through, I can't wait for more news on this as I'm sure we should be hearing more now that they finally made a deal!
