Thought some people might find this interessting. "Platinum Dunes Hires 'Hauntrepreneur' to Build Haunted House" http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/24651

Article says:
Platinum Dunes has been having difficulty getting sequels to Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street off the ground, but trekking into the lighter fare appears to be working. With TMNT in development and Ouija lensing this summer under the direction of McG, Platinum Dunes is about to tell a horror tale for the entire family.

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to pick up The Hauntrepreneur, an original spec by Scott Rosenberg, writes THR.

"The story centers on a family that has trouble adjusting to a new town and hires a peculiar man, the Hauntrepreneur, to help it. The man attempts to bring them together by creating a haunted house populated by an odd cast of characters."

The tone is described as being similar to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which could be cool.

Rosenberg was a high-flying action writer who worked in the Jerry Bruckheimer stable, penning movies such as Con Air and Gone in Sixty Seconds before moving into TV.

So Leonard will be sueing them for using 'Hauntrepreneur'!! I believe he states he trademarked or copyrighted the word!
May sound far fetched but Basketball coach Pat Riley trademarked "Three-peat" and actually gets royalties for it's use by other teams!!!

So Mr. Rosenberg, expect a letter soon!
