    Default Difference between these sentences..

    Is there a difference between the following:

    (A) In 18th century, he worked on a novel, which would later be cast into a film.


    (B) In 18th century, he worked on a novel, which was later cast into a film.

    Add 'the' before '18th', omit either one of the commas, change 'cast' into 'made' and there's no difference.


    A better title would have been
    'Which would later be cast/which was later cast'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
