The Ins & Outs of Option, Shopping & Attachment Agreements w/ Entertainment Lawyer

So, you have a great idea for a script based on this book, article, or story you’ve read, and you already know who you want to be your lead and are ready to start taking this around town. There’s just one problem, you don’t know how to go about doing any of this. Sure, you can ask that actor/director if they’re interested in being attached to your projects, but you have no idea what to do beyond that. Do you need some kind of contract? What are reasonable, standard terms? Should you draft it, or should you hire an attorney?
