- Executive Meddling, Screwed by the Lawyers: First-time filmmaker Courtney Solomon tells a harrowing tale of meddling by TSR's owner (who rejected several famous directors, including James Cameron and Francis Ford Coppola), by the threat of a lawsuit from Wizards of the Coast who were trying to reclaim the movie rights; the terms of the settlement required, among other things, that he use an old script that had been approved by TSR years ago instead of an updated version that he had wanted to use.
