- "2005: A Year in Review": Online Diary of David-Matthew Barnes. January 2005: "Around this time, film producer Curt Johnson entered our lives. He was introduced to me by fellow writer and editor Elizabeth Newman. Curt expressed interest in producing my original screenplay Rock It Girl. As Curt is an Academy Award winning producer, this news thrilled my new attorney (and former professor) William Vincent." October 2005: "I read in an industry magazine that my attorney helped close a $30M multi--project deal for Curt Johnson, the producer of Rock It Girl. ... In addition, I read in the magazine that the title of the film is now Whatever It Takes. I contact both the attorney and the producer. I receive a brief response explaining that I will most likely be paid for the script in November. There's been no mention of this or the project since."
