    Good info, and I'd be interested to hear the answer to blue's question.

    For future reference, there is no need whatsoever to put threads about the exact same thing in multiple forums.

    Very interesting news. It'll be interesting to see the final product, and who is driving this project. I'm not really interested in John DuPont's version of things.

    If it is an "independent" view, I'd be curious to see how the wrestling chapter of DuPont's life is presented, and how they present the murder of Dave Schultz. And, I, too, would be concerned about where the profits would go.

    Yes, if the profits go anywhere near a DuPont I want nothing to do with the movie.

    I assume the investors will take profits. See this:

    "Capote" is one of the best contemporary films I've seen in a long time, so there is some promise that "Foxcatcher" will be a quality film.

    I am pretty sure there are laws against convicted criminals profitting from their crimes.
