dyoung.jpgMoney Where His Mouth Is: The Writer’s Guild of America, West Exec Director David Young sits down today with studios and networks to try to forge more lucrative contracts for writers. This story focuses on Young’s tough-guy stance — and the fact that it didn’t get the WGA very far when it tried to organize reality-TV workers, and succeeded only in getting America’s Next Top Model writers fired.

The LAT says that’s because Warner Bros. has taken pains to maintain a kind of cohesive aesthetic to all the films. We say the film grossed $140 million in five days because the billboard casts a creepishly adoring light on Emma Watson’s sweater.
