About a year ago I wrote a true story about the Battle of Matera had a few working directors and screenwriters read it.They all told me to develop the 2 subplots within it one a mafia story and the other about a young Jewish girl all the main characters are involved in hiding and protecting.I'm a few weeks away from having the script to the point of involving professional feedback. But I've been told if I have more than 10% of the script that I can't prove actually happened as written the studio lawyers won't let you use the term TRUE STORY.Just wondering peoples thoughts on this.
Title Bella Cia The Beautiful Goodbye
Logline A young man in Matera Italy 1943 must convince the entire town to fight the Nazi occupation to protect a little Jewish girl,based on a true story.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
