Forget the personal trainer. That’s so last year. Anyone who’s anyone has a personal screenwriter. See, it’s not enough to have one, two, three, ten screenwriters toil over a script — the star or director also needs to bring along someone who understands his or her vision. Very important.

Of course, being a personal screenwriter isn’t just stepping on toes and revising carefully crafted dialogue. It’s also a highly lucrative job, sometimes lasting the duration of of production. A good writer who scrimps and saves over this period can almost afford a house in Culver City. As long as they don’t want much in the way of yards.

Yes, we’re willing to sell our soul in such a blatantly commercial, yet artistically satisfying, way. We believe, given enough money, we can make Adam Sandler’s humor funny.
