    Didn't JMS just say this in a post somewhere? But I can't see it now on the jmsnews frontpage...

    edit: here it is

    Meanwhile, on a wholly different note...not of triumph but of
    annoyance....because so much of the Forbidden Planet screenplay was
    leaked out, Warners and I have decided to chuck the screenplay in its
    entirety and start over. This is the direct result of the leaks that
    showed up on the nets, including detailed script reviews of a project
    that was barely a week old, and which would effectively destroy any
    anticipation of the movie because by the time it finally reached the
    screen in 2010 or thereabouts, the story would be old news. So we're
    starting fresh, and we're going to keep a tight lid on the script this
    time.

    So to the sites that say, "Where's the harm, it's not like they're
    gonna toss out the script because we blew the contents of same all
    over the nets," well, yes, that's exactly what it's like, and it's
    precisely your responsibility that a year's worth of work was
    destroyed.

    So we start anew, with the determined hope that the next draft will be
    even better, and far more secure, than the last one.

        Strange, it definately was also on the jmsnews.com frontpage, but it seems to have disappeared...?!

          So if they're chucking it, is it OK to talk about now?
