Speaking Out As Hollywood Burns?

Serdar’s latest post at his blog notes the issue of films being events – and the concern comes from none other than Gore Verbinski.  He’s concerned films are events now, multiplatform ones, and Hollywood’s excesses are in trouble from expenses and good TV.

Is it just me or all of a sudden are a lot of big names in Hollywood saying they’re in trouble?  We’ve heard from Speilburg, we’ve quoted others here, etc.  It seems people are vocally, publicly worried.

So if their concerns are valid (and I think they are, frankly), what happens if Hollywood doesn’t change direction and melts down?  Remember, it’s happened before.
