Will this have any effects on the screenplay?

---------------------------------------

http://kotaku.com/5371671/silent-hill-w ... nslaughter

Roger Avary, who received an Oscar for Pulp Fiction and who wrote the Silent Hill movie, is headed to jail for gross vehicular manslaughter. He was sentenced to a year in prison and five years probation.

In the fatal crash last year with Avary at the wheel, a hundred mph drunken driving crash left Avary's friend Andreas Zini dead and his wife in critical condition. Zini had recently wed and was visiting from Italy. His wife, Maria, was in another car.

Avary has settled with Zini's family in a civil suit for $4.1 million.

"It has profoundly altered me to the very core of my being," Avary said in the Ventura County Court.

Earlier this month, Avary signed on to write upcoming film Silent Hill 2.

As I posted in the other thread, it's not going to affect the film because he's being allowed to write the script during his sentence.

That's awkward.
'This movie was written in jail.'
Lol, maybe he'll get some different ideas for it then. Jails are spooky!

The Cleveland Browns player Donte Stallworth killed a man while drunk driving and only got 30 days. And it still makes me cringe how the families of the victims settle for money. It's almost like "Well my familiy member is dead but give me millions and it won't be so bad"

I know that being a fan of Silent Hill I would normally have a bias in favour of this person, but being that I despise drunken drivers who put other people's lives at risk, I feel that it is justice that he be sentenced. At least, however, he is able to write in prison.

Mixed feelings too. If Avery goes with the actual game's story arch rather than a direct sequel to the first movie (which I liked) I'll be excited, but at the same time seeing celebrities literally get away with murder (well, manslaughter in this case), on the basis of them being famous is just disgusting.

I don't think Avery got away with murder, really. The judge cited his extreme remorse for the incident when sentencing him and he paid the family $4.1 million. I think it has more to do with the judge than Avery's status. Here in Houston, an everyday joe got ten years probation for shooting and killing a tow truck driver for towing his car.

I agree with both of you. But at least it was one year and not a week or some ridiculous sentence like that. Afterall he was driving under the influence and killed his friend as a result of his carelessness.

That's my point. An every day Joe gets 10 years probation, where as a director gets considerably less. I understand the difference between shooting a tow truck driver and accidentally causing death by careless driving, but he drove while intoxicated. It doesn't send a good example to people by letting him get off comparatively lightly.

However, I will admit $4.1 million is at the very least compensation, regardless of how it pales in comparison to the loss of a human life.

I think I wasn't too clear when I was talking about the average joe thing. He got no jail time whatsoever, only ten years of probation. At least Avery got jail, plus five years of probation.

I don't get why people cringe over sentences being reduced due to money compensation, I mean, it's stupid that money in itself allows you to get off but why you'd be surprise someone would take MILLIONS over just getting nothing and letting a man suffer longer is beyond me.

If someone killed any of my family members, people whom I've lived with and grown up with for 26 years, no amount of money would ever replace what was lost. I'd rather see the person responsible for it suffer unimaginably over any amount of money offered. No amount of money could ever replace loving memories.

Neither will that man suffering. But at least money let's you buy stuff. Like a wave runner. Him suffering will get you nothing.
