Guess I'll have to get used to that diversity, right?
It was meant as a potential life lesson response to say, you're lucky it wasn't the new Matrix idea. It'd get stolen in a heartbeat and there'd be nothing you can do about it.

Yeah I realized. I think there's always a chance that the person I tell about it, will steal it and write it as their own. But I have to get some feedback from actual people, whom I would expect to buy a ticket for it.

Last point I'll mention, filmmakers don't make for good audience substitutes.

Instead, find audience members in your intended market and ask them. As an added bonus, there's less chance a filmmaker will steal your idea.

Just write the screenplay. Don't let anything stop you.
