Jerico Stone & the WGA

Disputed writing credits on feature films are arbitrated by the Writers Guild of America (WGA), the union of television and film writers. Not surprisingly, screenwriters are often peeved by WGA decisions.

"When Jerico Stone lost an arbitration on the film Matinee and received only a shared story credit -- a result that is tantamount to the verdict 'Your screenplay must have stunk' -- he was so angry that he tried to replace his name in the credits with the pseudonym 'Fuck.' (The Guild said no.)"

[On another occasion, a disgruntled writer stormed into a Policy Review Board hearing waving a gun.]

[No fewer than thirty-two screenwriters worked (at various times) on The Flintstones movie.]
