Hi everyone. So I am getting started with a screenplay adaptation for a self-published author based on their memoir and biography. After going through the manuscript in great detail, conducting interviews with other members of the family and lots of interviews with the author on specific details, I have started to see some "cracks" in the original book. I feel like some of the events depicted are clearly biased from their point of view, contain inaccurate information or hearsay, and could even paint certain people in a very negative light publicly. Also, it turns out that in the original manuscript, there isn't a very good job of hiding the identity of people, with some simply using name swaps. IE - Joe Johnson became John Josephson in the book. I have put some calls out for Entertainment Lawyers in my area, but still waiting to hear back. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
