Hi, I am making a movie. It is a zombie movie. I came up with the idea all by myself. I created the characters, and the plot line, etc etc. I met someone who wanted to work on it with me. He told me to send him my script so he could collaborate on it with me thru email. So now were are going back and forth creating a final draft of it all. I came up with the original everything for this film. What he did was took what I had and added all of his own ideas to it. He had the nerve to say to me, "Can I have credit for screenplay?" and I looked at him like he was out of his mind and said no. I am worried that he will try and take the credit for my script! If I go now and copywrite my original script and ideas...will that save me from being ripped off in any way? I told him that we could do this as long as we work it out where credit is due to who deserves it. I have a feeling he wants to try and take credit for way more than he is entitled to. I don't want to back out because I don't want to offend him. I never needed any one else to help me write this script. I'm actually really mad that his ideas arn't exactly like what I had in mind, but I keep trying to go with the flow and say that it will all work out in the end. The real reason I wanted to have him join in on this movie script is so he could help pay 50 percent of the film stock costs. THis is a low budget movie that I am doing everything I can by myself. I pride myself on doing as much as I can by myself on it. Of course I'm hiring make up artists, actors, etc...but anything i can do in house, i will do myself. Please someone let me know what you can about this. I DO NOT want to get screwed over by some guy that tries to take credit for something thats not his.
