Regarding David Chute's article on Joe Dante ("When Size Doesn't Matter," July 5): If Dante feels that the film "Matinee" is "doubly autobiographical," it is infinitely painful for me, who gave it birth and named it, to once again see a director credited for a screenwriter's original vision!

"You don't get paid to write, you get paid to rewrite." Nowhere is the old adage more true than with "My Stepmother Is an Alien." Now shooting in and around L.A., starring Dan Aykroyd, Kim Basinger, Jon Lovitz and Alyson Hannigan, with Richard Benjamin directing, the development of the script has spanned six years, three studios, three titles, at least eight writers (we've heard more), more than 15 revisions and--depending on whom you talk to--costs of between $1.
