Goggzilla is quietly pessimistic about the forthcoming drama surrounding the phone hacking scandal at News International. If it is true that Ian “Walter Mitty” Hurst was hired as a consultant then it looks grim. Casarotto WME are with Saul Dibb and UTA with Luke Neal and Teddy Leifer.

The corruption at New Scotland Yard went to the top, John Yates and John Stevens. The forthcoming week ought to shed light on what really occurred, that would be great television.
