Hey all,

We're going to be chatting to Peter Briggs soon. If you don't know the drill or are new, please feel free to throw up any questions that you might have for him. If it's not something I've already got and it's something that I think could lead to something interesting, I'll add it into the questions towards the end of the interview. :)

It's been ages (literally decades) since I read the script and much of the story around it, so my memory of this is really hazy. But given that license holders usually won't touch spec scripts for existing properties, what were the steps involved in getting Fox interested to the point of buying it? Was it easier to pitch such things back then that it is now, or vice versa? Asking as a writer who aspires to resurrect a beloved property that his been long-dormant.

If my understanding of the situation is inaccurate, feel free to disregard.

What can he tell us about the script apparently being dusted off and considered for Roland Emmerich later in the 90s, if anything?

What were the differences in the mysterious second draft? If you were to write the story now what would you do? Would you still want to adapt Darkhorse's original?
