Paging Sheldon Turner

In January, I wrote about Sheldon Turner, one of the writers of Snakes on a Plane, and talked about how one of his next movies is about a serial killer who only kills people in the eye of a storm. Awesome idea, and I can guarantee that this guy will go far in Hollywood.

Except when I went to see Snakes on a Plane last night, Sheldon Turner’s name was nowhere to be found. And, sure enough, the IMDB page for SoaP doesn’t list Sheldon Turner any more. His Wikipedia entry still lists him as a writer on SoaP, and googling “Sheldon Turner” “Snakes on a Plane” gives enough results to confirm I’m not making shit up.

Why was his credit removed for this movie? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
