"I was just thinking what an interesting concept it is to eliminate the writer from the artistic process. If we could just get rid of these actors and directors, maybe we've got something here."--Griffin Mill.

Like all Hollywood producers, he's always looking over his shoulder, and he thinks up-and-comer Larry Levy is after his job.
