  1. There’s a joke article I read in the Onion several years back about a script that’s been circulating around Hollywood since the ’20s that’s been rewritten as every possible kind of film at one point or other and which has been bought and sold by just about every studio in the game. Sometimes I wonder if that story is maybe truer than the writer realized.

    Of course, it’s not just Hollywood. *Paradise Lost* started out as a story about King Arthur.
