I should correct the word《could't》.
He wrote the scenario 5times and just grew tired.
I've heard 4 more writers tried that and all of them were rejected.
And finally Ross Thomas finished the complecated work.
I think you can read about all troubles in The Aremchair Detective
“'Ve Vere Young Then”although I read them in Japanese and don't
know exactly in which issue.

Depending on The Internet Movie Database Search,
Ross Thomas' role was Man in Boardroom.
