Hi Susanne,

You might be thinking of the 1978 film "The End",
starring and directed by Burt Reynolds.  It's been a
long while since I've seen it, but the premise is
along the lines you mentioned.

"As the movie industry becomes more like the merchandising industry, the book business becomes more like the movie industry.  There's more pressure.  I think it's very difficult to be a young writer today.  I fear that young writers, after one or two books, will disappear the way young film directors do."  --Don DeLillo
