The suits and the talent

Arun Verma points me, via email, to an article about a forthcoming book by Michael Bamberger on Manoj Night Shyamalan's battles with the suits at Disney. A nugget from the book:
Sometimes Night would close his eyes and see little oval black and white head shots of Nina Jacobson and Oren Aviv and Dick Cook floating around in his head, unwanted houseguests that would not leave. The Disney people had gotten deep inside his head, interfering with the good work the voices were supposed to do — and it would be hell to get them out.
There's a movie somewhere in that image, I'm sure. And I know who's not going to make it.

Meanwhile, back in India, Manish Vij writes that Krrish is Krrap. Heh.
