A friend sent along the Bon Cop / Bad Cop poster. It's oddly sedate for an action buddy cop comedy thriller about hockey. But who cares? It's got my name on it on the lower right. A reader writes:
Q. IMDB lists three writers for the script and one for "scenario". Never seen that before. How is that different from story credit?
The IMDB credits are not the contractual ones. Someone (not me) sent in their credits and included other people, including the director. In this case "scenario" seems to mean "story" though actually "scénario" means "script" in French.
The credits on the poster are the credits as they'll appear on screen. The arbitrated credits are:
Story ("scenario") by Patrick Huard;
Screenplay by Leila Basen & Patrick Huard and
Kevin Tierney & Patrick Huard and
I don't think anyone wanted to see that kind of a mess on screen, so everyone gets their name on the screenplay once.

Baffled. IMDB lists three writers for the script and one for "scenario". Never seen that before. How is that different from story credit?
Well, you can certainly TELL which is which.
Alex, isn't this a language thing?
I think en Francais the "screenplay by" credit is "scenario" isn't it?
No stuff blowing up??????
No screeching tires of the Ferrari????
