Auteur theory in action: Directors try to steal the spotlight

Quoting Wikipedia, the "auteur theory holds that a director's films reflect that director's personal creative vision, as if they were the primary 'auteur' (the French word for 'author')."

By using rumors that the Director's Guild of America is near a deal with the AMPTP, the directors have managed to steal the spotlight from the real authors (a.k.a. writers) again.

To get inside their heads, try to answer Rush Hour 2-director Brett Ratner's question: Tell me again why we need writers?

I hope that you are a Teamster for using the name Hoffa. I am a member of the IBT and our current leader is James Hoffa Jr.
Be carefull how you use the name to represent your cause as it mean a lot to us still and I for one don't like to see it used loosely.
