Does anyone know what has to be done in order to make a movie that is 'based on a true story'? Do you have to get permission from the person or people who it is about or anything like that? What about if it was 'loosely based' or 'inspired by' a true story (like adjusting the story, changing the names, and loosely following the real story)?
