Yes. And, according to a recent study, they are.
The study titled “Lack of Directors Affects Performance of Films,” by the University of British Columbia, surveyed more than 5,000 screenwriters.
It found that only 1 percent of screenwriters who directed were actually better than a given actress. On the other hand, the study states, there were about three actors per director who received more than a 50 percent return on their production costs. On the film side, that number was one writer on average for each five actors (at the lowest end).
The study further states that actors receive an estimated 40 percent return on their production costs and writers receive about 40 percent. When the authors broke down that by film type, two films in this category—The Aviator and The Last Tycoon—were the worst offenders.
Interestingly, these writers are less influential on their films than directors, the study reports.
That’s one reason why many actors and directors opt for more experienced writers. But that doesn’t mean they’re never right—it’s just harder for a newcomer writer to get noticed.
And if you’re in this for the money, keep the above in mind, too.

The city on Thursday announced it would not proceed with a plan to build a new park over the weekend as an environmental study concluded the move was not in the public interest.
The decision came less than one year after the city had sought to put up a new public park over the weekend, as part of several proposals for a new “green space”.
One proposal included a new park near King Street and Eglinton Avenue East that would have been open to the public from 5:00 pm through 8:30 pm daily.
A second proposal would have seen more public green spaces in the Queen’s Park neighbourhood. Those parks would have been open all weekend from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00:30 p.m.
