Re: What's Alan Moore's Problem?

I don't know anything about WANTED, but it's not unknown for a studio to like the basic idea of something, even if they intend to change all the details, and buy the movie rights just because it's cheaper than fighting a lawsuit later on.

Or they discover that a project that's already in the works bears a possibly actionable resemblance to some earlier book or movie. So they buy the rights and make their movie an "adaptation" rather than risk getting sued somewhere down the road.
