(AP photo) VENTURA, Calif. — Skip Royston's house was touched by fame so he hopes that will increase its value on the real estate market. The 1,181-square-foot house was featured as Julia Roberts' home in the film "Erin Brockovich." Royston is using the movie as a marketing device. He's got a large "Erin Brockovich" movie poster tacked to the kitchen wall. Newspaper clippings are posted on the refrigerator door. Royston, 45, bought the house nine months ago for $233,500, after a neighbor told him it was used in the movie. He wants $289,999 for the three-bedroom house. "I think there are a lot of people who would ... be willing to pay more for it, "he said. Similar houses in the area sell for $235,000 to $270,000. Royston put the house up for sale two weeks ago. "Everyone wants a piece of movie history," said real estate agent Mike Glickman, who specializes in celebrity properties and has the Royston listing. Jana Scarborough of Remax Gold Coast Realtors had a different view: "Notoriety is an element. But someone would really have to be obsessed with Julia Roberts to buy it just because it was used in the movie." los and met with musician Vangelis Papathanasiou, who composed music for the 1981 Oscar-winning movie "Chariots of Fire." ATHENS, Greece — Sean Connery is in town, but his wife is taking the spotlight. Micheline Roquebrune, the French-Moroccan portrait painter, was scheduled to open a multipurpose center Tuesday in downtown Athens, where some of her artwork is on display. Connery, 70, was received by Athens Mayor Dimitris Avramopou- LAS VEGAS — Klingons and leather-clad barbarians mingled as fans of "Star Trek: Voyager" prepared for the final mission and "Xena: Warrior Princess" clones awaited her last battle. Paramount's "Voyager," the fourth series in the "Star Trek" saga, and the syndicated "Xena" are both in their final TV seasons. But that didn't deter some 900 fans who crowded into the Plaza hotel-casino for a convention Sunday. 'All the fans are pushing for a new series," said Grace Lee Whitney, who played Yeoman Janice Rand on the original 1960s "Star Trek." Whitney said she would like to work with George Takei, who played Sulu in the original. "The series would take off where 'Voyager' left off. I'm the poster girl for the'geriatric generation," said Whitney, who was promoting her autobiography, "The Longest Trek: My Tour of the Galaxy." Whitney attributed the continuing fascination with all things "Star Trek" to the approachability of the stars. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fears of a Hollywood strike sent studio chiefs to the bargaining table with screenwriters, but nobody was predicting an early agreement even though the fall TV schedule and thousands of jobs are at stake. Disney President Robert Iger and DreamWorks studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg took part in the opening session of contract talks Monday with the Writers Guild of America. Both sides called the talks cordial. The Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers, which represents the major studios and independent companies, made a gesture of cooperation by including studio heads in the first meeting. The WGA contract with producers expires April 1 and both sides are mindful of the chaos that resulted in 1988 when a 22-week writer's strike delayed the fallTVseason. "We're here today to show respect for the writers and respect for the process, a process that for the last 12 years has resulted in labor peace in Los Angeles, not labor conflict," said Barry M. Meyer, Warner Bros, chief executive, who was involved in the opening discussions. The talks, which resumed today, have a two-week limit imposed by the WGA. But the limit is flexible, said John Wells, creator of TV's "ER" and president of the WGA's West Coast branch. "Nobody's going to walk away from the table if we've made some more progress," he told reporters. Writers are demanding increased TV and movie residual payments and "creative rights" intended to give them more prestige and control of projects. That includes eliminating the so- called possessory credit for film directors — the "A film by ..." designation — that writers contend minimizes their importance. Wells acknowledged a difficult negotiation is ahead, citing issues thai he said have gone unaddressed foi more than a decade. "Those issues are painful for the companies to deal with," Wells said. A new militancy by Hollywood unions has both sides preparing for a walkout, prompting studios to accelerate movie production andlay in TV "reality shows" that don't require scripts. Los Angeles County businesses could lose an estimated $2 billion a month during a walkout. Some observers also worry a prolonged strike could increase so-called "runaway production," sending more film work to Canada. If the WGA talks succeed, the next round of negotiations will involve acting unions, whose work agreements end this summer. Last year, the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists staged a six- month strike against the advertising industry, the longest talent walkout in Hollywood history.
