This is my 2 cents on the Del Toro credit issue [In reply to] Can't Post

The way the WGA determines who receives credit on a script is incredibly arbitrary. Del Toro worked for a time on the initial draft of the screenplay and possibly contributed an idea (i.e. a gag, a line, etc) that made it into the script.

The credits are based on the draft that was handed into the studio. It's pretty likely that what he contributed to that draft got replaced in subsequent drafts via further pre-production rewrites and Walsh and Boyens' constant tweaking of scenes during production. There's also the decisions the actors and director make whilst filming to take into consideration.

Lastly, he's a name guy now, and one WB is backing by letting him helm Pacific Rim. I wouldn't be surprised if the studio was able to twist a few arms at the WGA to make sure his name came up, just so it's out there int he public eye.

Right [In reply to] Can't Post

But being a core part of the team that drafted the entire first final draft of the script means that despite significant changes since then by PBJ etc, the bones of the script will very much have GDT's stamp on it. And I hope so. He's a much better writer than P, B and J, and a more thoughtful student of myth and legend.

They are [In reply to] Can't Post

At least, the Craig Williamson ones are pretty good. And I enjoyed it myself as well. In fact I even submitted my own riddle! Laugh

But the fan riddles are a mixed bag. Some of them are good, while others are not. Regardless though it was very fun. Smile
