Hollywood producers spend the better part of their days searching for the perfect story to transform into a movie. While tons of original concepts and scripts are born simply from a writer’s imagination, often times real life can provide the ultimate inspiration.
That’s why nearly ever major studio from Disney to Warner Brothers invests tons of money and manpower into finding – and adapting – stories straight from the headlines, and transform them into modern cinematic classics. No wonder these films are all filled with plots and characters that ring so true!
Producing a movie that draws from reality is often a sure-fire way to make a significant amount of money for everyone involved, turning novice actors into household names, and making stars of filmmakers. While telling a story is great, making money is even better.
