Hollywood loves reboots, sequels, and remakes. It loves connected universes. And it loves bringing back anything that's been shown at least once to make some money. It's a habit we all love to criticize — and yet, we must be doing something (like buying tickets, merchandise, and DVDs) to make it all worthwhile. Still, if you pay attention to the Hollywood trades or read any of the leaked Sony emails, you can get the sense that Hollywood's leaders are just making it up as they go, hoping for the best and trying not to get burned. Here, we try to give you the experience of making a movie in Hollywood. Do your best to think of a brilliant idea, see it through to execution, and get that big promotion before you get fired.
