It's interesting how movies always come out in twos.
There's gotta be some corporate espionage or something going on when that happens.

Ghost/Always
Deep Impact/Armageddon
Friends with Benefits/No strings Attached
Etc/etc...
It happens all the time, and studios don't even try to be surreptitious about it.

Essentially what happens is: writer has is script and makes his pitch to the studios. They all take notes during the pitch. If more than one studio likes it, then, instead of getting into a bidding war, one will just pass the notes off to a staff writer.

Oh. And film looks terrible.
