If it were such an awesome screenplay it would have been filmed years ago.

When you look at the low/no budget indie films that have been produced and performed spectacularly well in the intervening decades it tells me that there is something flawed with the story or script.

I do agree with the writer of TFA when he complains about the template/cookie cutter nature of screenplays coming out of Hollywood right now. When I can predict with near accuracy spoken lines, action on screen or plot points well in advance of the onscreen reveal it says a lot about what is coming out of Hollywood as entertainment.
