My understanding from endless hours of listening to the 'ScriptNotes' podcast, (Camel-cased jus to annoy John August) is that when a studio or such buys a script they buy the entire copyright becoming the 'author' of the script with all the associated rights unless otherwise specified in the contract.

I like to think of us as a little online movie club... albeit admittedly organized around a love of small d democratic norms, which may be a bit weird. I watch the assigned movies weekly (and only rarely miss), so I'm excited for this weeks film. I'm a sucker for westerns.

Anyway, my favorite Michael Gambon role was Baltus Van Tassle in Sleepy Hollow. Again, not a staring role, but he delivered perfectly.
