Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Thriller features and pilots wanted. Must have female lead with a strong feminine sensibility, (not a woman pretending to be a man). Considering stories and events that are relevant to a female audience with smart writing and exciting action sequences that build suspense. Strong characters with solid story a must. Accepting budgets under $500,000.

Paid: Payment upfront; 3% of Budget

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted


A paranoid girl was kidnapped by a serial killer into a forest to torture for fun, until one day the girl discovered a little girl personality living in the guy that came out only at night...

Please forgive me for emphasizing, the cost of this movie is surprisingly low as it almost only requires a cast of two actors and a cabin in the woods. It’s like Split(2016) being simplified to Sleuth(1972). Although the story has fewer characters than Split, it concentrates more on the relationship between the characters who’s in control and being controlled. The two characters constantly switch between power and weakness, for which the tension is thrilling.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Hi. I have a psychological thriller with a female lead that you may be interested in.

Title - 'Intruder'
Logline - Sally fears that her ex-boyfriend has been entering her apartment at night – and even more fearful that it’s someone else. But the truth is so much worse!

I can provide a more detailed synopsis if you're interested.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Greetings and salutations --

Regarding your search for a thriller with a female lead, I’d like to pitch you my action comedy NOWHERE GIRL. Here’s the logline:

When a stripper is mistakenly given a suitcase nuke at an airport bar, she’s suddenly pursued by a Homeland Security agent, an arms dealer, a terrorist sleeper cell, her CIA agent ex-lover and a trio of assassins – as she races against the clock to deliver the package before sunrise in order to save her family. AUSTIN POWERS meets SPY.

A bit about me and my background: I've worked in various capacities in the industry at New Line, Disney, Warner Bros and MTV over the years, and have developed projects with the producers of THE LORD OF THE RINGS, THE MISSING, GAME OF THRONES and GRAN TORINO.

My first film, A NEW TOMORROW, a political mockumentary, won the audience award at the Seattle Independent Film Festival, my drama pilot RIDGEWAY is out to premium cable networks and streaming platforms with a director and talent attached, and my horror/comedy FRANKENSTEIN IN LOVE has a director attached with a view to going into production early nex year. Additionally, my contained thriller AFTERHOURS was just optioned and is now in active development, and I’m also developing a WWII docuseries that just sold to Netflix. For more information about my career so far, please check out this article I wrote for LA Screenwriter: http://la-screenwriter.com/2015/07/07/never-give-up-advice-from-a-writer-whos-been-there/.

Let me know if you’d like to read a one-page synopsis and/or the script. It’s high-concept fun that will market itself.

Thanks for your time and consideration. I'm humbled and honored.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted



As a result of an automobile accident, Jane, the only survivor in her family, becomes obsessed with taking revenge on Michael, the survivor in the vehicle that killed her family.


Jane, the only survivor in an automobile accident that kills her family, constructs a plan of revenge directed toward Michael, the survivor in his family that caused the mishap. Informed that the automobile manufacturer is liable has no bearing on her desire for payback. Having serious behavioral problems at age sixteen, a judge orders Jane to a disciplinary school for rehabilitation until she reaches eighteen. There, Jane bonds with Gloria, a drug addict. Michael unexpectedly visits the school hoping to share how each are coping with the loss of their parents. Avoiding being recognized, Jane persuades Gloria to assume her identity for the visit. Gloria, posing as Jane, lies to Michael and his friend Ruth that one of the assistants at the school tried to rape her. Convincing them to help her escape, Gloria threatens Michael with a knife demanding he give her his car. In a struggle outside the vehicle, Gloria falls into a ravine and disappears. Liable for the accident, the auto manufacture pays sizeable death benefits to both Jane (now eighteen) and Michael. Before Jane is released from school, Gloria contacts her. Jane offers to share her inheritance if Gloria would accompany her to New York. In New York, Jane hires Peterson, a P.I. to prepare a dossier on Michael. When Peterson attempts to blackmail Jane, Gloria kills him. With all the background information from the dossier and a complete make over, Jane is now ready to do business with Michael. Concerned that Jane may fall for Michael, Gloria ignores Jane’s request to stay in New York and secretly follows her Bay Village Massachusetts. There, Gloria attempts to kill Michael twice, but accidently kills Ruth instead.

Changing her name to Ann and sporting a fashionable and friendly demeanor, Jane quickly wins Michael’s affection. Suspecting Ann is involved in the attempts on Michael’s life, Detective Blake orders Michael to stay in a motel and not to contact Ann. Coincidentally, Gloria is staying at the same motel. Ignoring Blake’s advice, Michael contacts Ann informing her of his whereabouts. Gloria gains entry to Michael’s room and tries to kill him with a knife. Realizing the charade is over, Ann enters the room as Jane. Anticipating the authorities are on their way and as a pretense to save Michael’s life, Jane struggles with Gloria and stabs her. In the presence of Detective Blake and before dying, Gloria confesses to killing Ruth and the attempts on Michael’s life. After a year, Michael appears to accept Jane’s reasons why she wanted to remain anonymous when they first met. Spending a day at the beach, Jane offers Michael a drink spiked with poison. Blake appears informing Jane that her association with Peterson has surfaced and that her attempt to avenge her family’s death was expected by both himself and Michael. Now under arrest and while escorted to the station by two Officers, the trio encounters a robbery. The Officers are shot. Jane joins the perpetrators in the back seat of their vehicle. As they flee the scene, Jane peers out the rear window with a smile on her face.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

My name is Judy Bednarek and my film project Star Child: A Fourth Generation is a grounded sci-fi thriller with action that exposes the genetic-engineering of humans and the evil forces behind it. A former gang member finds help from a troubled ex-Marine when her genetically-altered daughter is kidnapped revealing a government-alien conspiracy to replace humans.

Josie Sanchez is a tough-as-nails, single mom who drinks to numb the pain of a hard life on the streets with the San Chucos gang and failed relationships. She doesn't have the financial means or patience to raise a child but despite her alcoholism is still a loving, protective mother.

Jackson Torres is a former cop and Marine who suffers from PTSD. He is an ex-soldier who can't fire a gun without getting a tremor in his hand when Agents in Black relentlessly pursue Josie and Riley. He struggles to keep them safe using his martial arts skills and becomes an unlikely Hero.

Riley Sanchez is a gifted child with a superior intellect and unearthly, black eyes. She doesn't have an emotional bond with her mother. Riley is compelled to go with the Agents in Black because she is mind-controlled as a result of her genetic programming.

I packaged this film in collaboration with award-winning director Pasha Patriki (Black Water, Gridlocked). Actors have requested exclusive contracts for the lead roles. I have a deal on the table from Matthew Helderman at Buffalo 8 to package the film to submit to their financiers for funding and we can bring up to 4 producers onto the project but they are requesting a retainer fee.

Can I send you the film package and script?

I moved to LA for three months to network with film colleagues and take meetings that resulted in offers to direct and produce my project. One of my scripts was just selected at the at the Sundance-affiliated 2019 Oaxaca FilmFest in Mexico, It was entered in the Global Script Challenge and chosen for IMMEDIATE COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT from more than 10,000 scripts. I have also placed as a finalist and pitch winner in other contests.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Logline: GOFORTH - A little girl, TJ, aspires to someday be a police officer. While still a child, she loses her parents and so struggles with insecurity. Entering a relationship at age 18 with the violently abusive Curt keeps her in fear for her life. Incredibly, her best girlfriend's near-death experience opens the door to TJ's freedom and she finally realizes her dream of becoming a cop. Seven years later, when Curtis brutally murders a young woman, It's Lt. TJ Goforth who brings him to justice. (Based on a true story)

Note: We produced a short version of GOFORTH (35 minute) in order to pitch it and see it become a feature film. The short was nominated for Best Short Movie at festivals in New York City, Los Angeles, San Antonio, and several other international festivals. The trailer and the short are available for viewing. The completed script is 95 pages in length.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

The comedic banter and horrific images in A Vulture’s Eye are comparable to the wit and terror in Scream. Creating this script allows me to remove ghastly nightmares from my manic mind and place them in yours, but only if you allow me to dip your soul into the horrors found inside the taxidermist’s mansion. As you sink into my abyss, the beating of a heart will not set you free until the mystery surrounding an urban legend is solved by a crafty teenage girl.

Fighting the whole time for her beliefs and attempting to undo the damage done to England by her father, for love.

Horses running furiously toward a castle in the distance changes to men feverishly walking toward a room and demanding an audience with her highness, Mary Tudor. Her maid goes to her chair, where she is reading, whispers in her ear and helps ready her to receive them. Men bow when she enters the room.

Mary: As much as I appreciate your company gentlemen, there are
better hours.

Spy 1: Princess Mary, his majesty is ill.

Mary: He has always been sickly, my lord. We pray daily for his

Spy 2: Pray no my lady, God forgive me for saying so, but his
majesty will not survive. It is said he is dead already.

Mary: I am called upon to attend him in two days' time. It is the
reason I moved my household here to Hunsdon.

Spy 1: Your grace, we fear that meeting is a ploy to get you into
Dudley's control and ultimately, the tower.

Spy 2: His majesty, on the advice of his counsel no doubt, has
named you and Princess Elizabeth, illegitimate.

Mary: (scoffs) we've been named so before, one of us with reason
some would say

Spy 2: ..and he has named your cousin, Lady Jane Grey, as his
heir. Dudley has married her to his youngest son as he seeks to
rule through them.

Spy l: If you meet with them in two days' time you may well be too late to visit with the king, but arrive just in time to be imprisoned as they put Lady Jane on the throne

Mary: (quiet for a moment then turns to her counselor, Sir Francis Englefield) What say you?

Sir Francis: Your grace, his council will see you imprisoned and lost like the two princes to keep heresy alive in this country and beyond.

Mary: It is not beyond Northumberland to hide my brother's death and place lady Jane on the throne as his puppet.

Sir Francis: I bid your grace to run, ride north and build up support, then we shall return and name you queen Mary, as is your right.
Mary turns to Sir Francis

Mary: Send to Northumberland in the morning. Tell him my physician, Dr. Feckham, is ill and bid me leave for my own health. Tell him further that I will leave at mid-day tomorrow but will attend my loving brother, the king, as soon as I am able.

Mary then turns to her maids

Mary: My page, secretary and two guards, send word they are to quietly ready themselves to ride within the hour, you two will attend me.

Maids in unison: Yes, mi lady.
Mary turns back to her spies

Mary: Speak of this to no one and your loyalty to the King's true heir will not be forgotten.

Spies bow, then leave the room
Mary turns to Sir Francis

Mary: God forgive me, could it be true?

Sir Francis: You've long waited for it your highness. It is your right.

Mary: Where shall we go?

Sir Francis: We shall ride to Cambridgeshire

Mary: To Sir Huddleston?

Sir Francis: He is friend to your highness and a true Catholic. He will house us this night, then on to Euston hall.

Mary: Lady Burgh is a friend. This is true. From there we will go to my home in Norfolk.

Sir Francis: Where support for your grace will be great.

Mary: So, it will. I bid you, ready yourself, for this will not be easy, it never is....

Title: The Unexpected(Published Book available on Amazon looking to be made into Movie or TV Series)

Genre: Paranormal/Superhero

Appropriate for all ages.


Sydney, and Ajanae are cousins. Their best friends are Trinity and Aniya. The girls are
away at boarding school when an accident leaves them with unexplainable gifts. These gifts
come with a downside, they are now in the crosshairs of someone or something else powerful.
Will they survive, again?


This book is dedicated to all of the young adults out there who don’t see themselves when they read about or watch shows about Superheros. You are beautiful in your skin.


As soon as Nae-Nae turned the key in the ignition, the radio began blaring music. They all sang along to Queen Naija. They left the school parking lot and turned onto the main road that led them away from Bayside Preparatory for girls.

Twenty-seven minutes later they were pulling into Woodside Prep for boys. As they headed toward Ricky's dorm building, a huge crack of lightning struck. The loud "Boom" it gave off made them all jump and scream.

"Geez, Thor. What has his boxers in a bunch?" Syd joked.

They all laughed as they loved super hero movies. Just that past weekend they had holed up in Niya and Trinity's room with popcorn, flavored sparkling water, and chocolate. They watched all the marvel movies together and just hung out. They did things like that on rainy or boring weekends.

"There she is.." Niya said, pointing to a figure standing outside his dorm building.

She was holding herself and trying to find shelter under the small awning over the entrance. It was hardly big enough to keep her dry. Nae-Nae had barely parked before they all jumped out and ran over to her. Syd had the umbrella and held it over her head. Niya handed her the jacket Nae-Nae always kept in the car in case the weather turned crisp without warning.
Nae-Nae was the first to speak.

"Why are you out here, Trin?" She asked.

"They can't have girls in the building after nine. So, he told me I had to wait outside so he didn't get a write-up." She answered quietly. Wiping rain water and tears from her face and eyes. Her long, brown hair soaked and dripping.

"He didn't even give you an umbrella or stand out here with you?" Syd asked.

She shook her head no.

"Throw the whole guy away." Syd told her.

"Done. Anyway, he couldn't really walk." She informed them with a shrug of her shoulders.
"Why not?" Niya asked.

"I might have used the knee to the groin move Syd's stepfather taught us."

"Yasssss!!!" Nae-Nae yelled.

The other girls laughed. Happy he got what he deserved. Niya put her arms around Trin's shoulders and they all ran back to the car.

"Operation put Ricki in his place starts tomorrow." Niya announced.

They all agreed.

"This right here is why we don't go all the way. These guys are clowns and a distraction." Nae-Nae said as she pulled off.
Again, they all agreed.

"I'm starving..." Trin said from the back seat.

"Wait, I thought he took you out to dinner." Niya said.

"Pfft...he took me to the vending machine. I had a bag of chips and a pack of starburst."

"I just know you lying. Cheap punk." Syd added.

"Ok, money count." Niya said.

All the girls pulled out any money they had and put it all together.

"Syd, check my card." Nae-Nae told Syd. Since she was driving and couldn't do it herself.

Syd grabbed her cousin's phone and checked her card account. It was almost the first of the month. So, their parents would be sending them more spending money in a couple of days.

"Twenty-three dollars and sixty- two cents on your card. I have Eighteen dollars and forty- seven cents on mine." She shared with the group.

"I have twenty-seven even in cash." Niya said.

"I have twelve bucks and three starbursts." Trinity added.

They all began laughing at that.

"So, taco big box or Wendy's four for four menu?" Nae-Nae asked.

There was about a three second pause before they all answered.

"Tacos!!" They yelled in unison.

Moments later they were leaving the taco bell drive thru five minutes down the road from Bayside prep. As they approached the last
stop light before turning back onto the road leading to school, Nae-Nae slowed down.

"It's beginning to flood." She observed.

"Yeah, it isn't too bad yet. Twenty more minutes and we would have been swimming through....."Syd was saying.

She never got to finish her sentence. Another loud "BOOM" was heard. This time, two bolts of lightning accompanied the thunder. Both hitting the stoplight. Knocking it into the street where the flooding was just beginning to rise. This just as the tires of the jeep touched the water. Electricity shot through the jeep. It encircled the jeep in a conductive field for just a moment, catching the girls b

When two high stakes smugglers lure a desperate street musician into becoming their unsuspecting mule, they get more than they bargained for.

BRYCE, 30s and his business partner, CLAUDIUS, 40s are career white collar Canadian criminals looking for a mule to smuggle something very valuable across the border into Canada. They spot striking NATALIA, 30s, playing her beat-up cello for donations at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Bryce woos her and in time, Natalia and Bryce seem to fall in love so deeply, that she even forgives him when he accidentally breaks her cello. He gets it repaired and to make it up to her, invites Natalia and her daughter, PENELOPE, 8, to come north to Canada with him.
When Bryce is murdered there, she becomes a suspect. but Claudius comes to her rescue, spirits Natalia and Penelope away to a private island in British Columbia. One night, while Natalia and Penelope sleep, TWO ARABS visit Claudius, who peels away the repaired back on Natalia’s cello exposing a priceless manuscript stolen from a Syrian antiquity site by ISIS. Claudius sells it for millions. After the Arabs leave, Claudius tries to murder Natalia and her daughter, but after a fierce struggle, Natalia chokes Claudius to death with her cello bow. Or so she thinks. After one last fight to the death, Natalia and Penelope escape in Claudius’s cabin cruiser – with the cash.
On the water, Natalia’s smile fades into a flashback to the opening scene. While playing in Seattle, she overhears the conversation between Bryce and Claudius. They need to find a mule to smuggle a priceless manuscript to Canada to exchange it with the Arabs. She turns toward the men, opens her legs invitingly around the cello, and beckons them to her with her eyes.

Now, it’s clear: She entrapped them, to get the big score – not the other way round.

Obviously, this is a DEAD lead, so it would be wise to not respond to it.

Hi. Available in all formats. e-book/paper/audible across the globe.
Set in Toronto Canada.
The story champions the ability of women to combat the worst that mankind can offer.


Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Not sure if it's exactly what your looking for as this script has more of an ensemble cast. It may work though because the female character is a complex character that becomes immersed in a culture of toxic masculinity which she ends up bending to suit her own needs.

Log Line:
When three down-on-their luck surfers head to LA looking for a quick score to fund their Mexican getaway, they stumble into kidnapping a raucous Disney starlet and smuggle her across the boarder, hoping she will be the financial boon that will afford them the freedom they so desperately want.

Tag Line:
When dropping in is the only way out.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Fraudulent - comedic thriller (The Nice Guys meets Snatch meets Run Lola Run) - This comedic thriller story is run 3 times from 3 very different intertwined perspectives:
1. Martinez, a police detective investigating the disappearances of Emilio Gonzales and Richard Jones.
2. Richard Jones, a shady plastic surgeon, committing a life insurance fraud to financially secure the love of his life.
3. Sophia, the women they all love and believe they are in a relationship with, and how she masterfully plays them all.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

I would like to respectfully submit my Feature Thriller Script "LAURA MUST DIE" for your kind consideration.

It opens with Laura receiving unusual emails, apparently from a sympathetic, admiring man who hides his identity, but she will soon discover she is not as safe as first appears. As the story unfolds, despite a flattering self-portrait, this man emerges as a person emotionally capable of murder with an obsessive need of control.

Thank you for your time and attention.
Best Regards

Laura Ashley is an erotic novelist working on her newest book about the thin line between sadomasochism and serial killers. She falls for the wrong man, while her ex Policeman boyfriend tries to win her back by helping her find a serial killer.

The story opens with Laura receiving unusual e-mails, apparently from a sympathetic man who hides his identity behind a screen, but she will soon discover she is not safe anymore. As the trail progresses, despite a flattering portrait, he emerges as a person emotionally capable of murder with an obsessive need of control. She informs her boyfriend Derek, a police officer, about a possible connection between her virtual lover and the last women strangled to death. They were all called Laura and she is probably on his list. Laura herself is quite disturbed as she is aware of no real current direction in her life or in her writing. This may explain why she is seemingly relegated to play his game. She decides to cheat fate but soon realizes she is madly in love with this stranger. Another naked corpse is found at a remote location near the airport. Derek goes on with his investigation. He reveals to Laura that her virtual lover, finally free, after two decades of incarceration for killing his former wife has re-entered society, with nothing but scars from prison life he struggles for survival on the outside. Recalled to a recent scene in which another woman called Laura has been brutally murdered, he asks her to cooperate with his plan to stop the murderer. She refuses. The jealous boyfriend Derek gets her drunk over dinner to find out more then, searches her computer to discover the real intensity of their feelings and that they plan to meet. The trial goes around Derek and his personal drama. It revolves into a great deal of depth about the legal technicalities of criminal investigation, such as gathering enough evidence to accuse him of a crime he never committed.

After a chase and fight, Derek shoots the serial killer. He makes his way to plant a long knife next to the body in order to convince the public he had no choice, but to fire. Love is just the eloquent reminder of how much nonsense Laura had survived, but this story made headlines around the world and catapulted her to a new national identity.

The game of love is a dangerous one, but only Laura can join in...

As strange as it may seem, this is the work of a writer with a French mother and a Spanish father.
Proud of my meticulous education received in the French Secondary school of Malaga, I soon discovered my literary versatility. It was an uncanny thirst for knowledge and discovery that encouraged me to explore the many literary styles of fiction, romance, and thriller.

Most of the time I do freelance writing, but I'm also a prolific writer of fiction novels and screenplays with more than 50 Awards in International Film Festivals. (WINNER & FINALIST)

Longline: A vigilante crime buster team boss by night and kind elementary theatre teacher by day is on the line between law and justice. With the cops on her tail, she goes through mayhem to keep her secret from both the cops and the man she falls for who happens to be the leader of the elite team who is hunting her.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

My thriller/suspense revolves around Caitlyn. This is the story from her perspective and follows along the similar suspense as Gone Girl... but with a MUCH different ending. Whether my reader loves the ending or hates it, they are talking about it. Perspective is everything.

In a world of over 7 billion people, it’s still easy to feel alone. But someone is always watching... do you know who’s watching you?

Caitlyn has spent years climbing the corporate ladder, turning her job as a computer system engineer into a career she can be proud of. Now in her 30’s, she decides it's time to shift her focus to building a family of her own.
She joins a dating website, but soon wonders if that may have been the wrong choice. Each date is worse than the one before and she begins to doubt she'll ever find Mr. Right, if such a creature even exists.
One night after being stood up-again, Caitlyn decides to take a walk in her beloved downtown Denver. Fate seems to be on her side when she meets an attractive man at a patio bar and it was like they'd known each other for years.
Despite enjoying Drew's company immensely, Caitlyn's friends think she's settling and pressure her into continuing to date other guys.
But destiny has it own agenda, and Caitlyn's life soon takes a series of twists and turns that not even a fortune teller could have predicted. Can she and Drew survive what fate has thrown at them?

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted



As a little girl Hattie Mays thought everyone floated above their beds at night...and everyone could see colored lights surrounding others body. She could feel people’s Souls and weather they were good or evil. This was one of the reasons she became a Psychiatrist to help people who were like her and didn’t know how to deal with it.

Her great-grandfather was a Chickasaw Shaman she believed this was where her abilities flowed from…they had never forsaken their Beliefs for the ways of White Men. It had been a hard road to fulfill her dream but she had accomplished it.

Hattie always had a feeling she was not of this world and Humans were not the only Inhabitants on this ball of dirt. Her awareness magnified once she hit Puberty and she encountered what she called The After Beings. One of their many evolved abilities was making love using their Brains and not their flesh-bound bodies….it was an all-consuming, mind-blowing, out-of-this-world, cataclysmic Orgasm.

She needed to be part of their world.

Strong female lead features & TV series


Re your call for the above. I have several:

PEEK-A-BOO! - A micro-budget horror movie, 5 actors 1 location. There is potential for a video game to be produced from the movie.
Logline: Trapped in a disused warehouse four teenagers battle for survival against a supernatural killer in a brutal virtual reality computer game that turns real.

The Abaddon Dance: A low budget, strong female lead thriller / horror with a devil worship theme.
Logline: Ellen’s life as a rock musician is turned upside down after a stranger hassles her in the street. Just his touch on her hand starts a horrific chain of events that leads to multiple murders.

Dead Phone: A strong female role led low budget horror thriller packed with shocks and plot twists with a horrific finale.
Logline: A young mother finds an old dead phone that mysteriously sends her messages about a missing girl. Will she discover what happened or will she and her daughter suffer the same fate?

The Resurrected: A Low / medium budget horror drama with strong female leads. N.B. This could also be made as a streaming series as it was originally written as 2 x 1 hour pilot episodes for a TV series.
Logline –Beautiful teenager Mary is murdered. Her body is resurrected in a sinister military experiment to create super-soldiers that can slip through time. She escapes and is hunted down. Will her new powers save her from being silenced?

All the above should come within $500k budget. FYI - Dead Phone was optioned but the option lapsed as the budget set was only $250k and, due to the number of scenes, it couldn't be met.

The Seeds: A crime / political thriller in 12 x 1 hour episodes with a strong female lead. The series is based in the rise and fall of a Nationalist Welsh Separatist terrorist organisation. It is very fast paced with a complex plot full of twists and shock reveals.

If you'd like more information about any of the above just let me know.



Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

Title: Watching over Remie.

Logline: A seemingly contented housewife slowly becomes obsessed with the idea of protecting her four-year-old daughter from possible harm, eventually turning to violent measures to keep her safe.

Watching Over Remie is a unique psychological thriller about Claire, a seemingly contented housewife who slowly finds herself fearing for her four-year-old daughter Remie's safety. It's a natural fear every parent can relate to, that something - anything - might happen to their child. And Watching Over Remie takes this protective instinct to its terrifying and psychologically complex limits.

When Claire hears about an acquaintance losing a child to cancer, the news seems to affect her in unsuspecting ways. It isn’t long before she’s making drastic changes to her family’s diet. When her French husband Alain questions her, Claire shrugs it off as nothing more than promoting better habits. But soon, Claire begins noticing subtle dangers in Remie’s daily schedule; the babysitter, the lack of oversight in the schoolyard, a toy found on the street that looks just like her daughter’s.

Little by little Claire’s quest to shelter Remie begins to take its toll on Alain, who tries his best to help her. When he catches wind of Remie missing school, Alain takes over Claire’s role and begins dropping Remie off himself. However, it ends in a frightening display as Claire winds up roaming the school halls searching for her daughter and prompting a lock-down situation - an episode that lands her in a hospital psych ward. There she meets inmate Tara, the only one who seems to understand Claire and her desire to protect the ones she loves at all costs.

Released due to a failure to find her a threat, Claire can’t wait to get back home to Alain and Remie. But when she finds out Alain has taken Remie to stay with his mother, Claire steals her father’s gun and goes on a kidnapping mission to get her child back.

After taking Remie at gunpoint, Claire is determined to drive her child to a safe place despite the fact that Alain and the police are frantically tracking her down. While driving along the highway, Claire realizes she’s gone from protector to predator. It’s then she makes a last ditch attempt to protect Remie that shocks everyone.

LOGLINE: The Accomplice

A lovable reform school grad, desperately seeking a fresh start in a small town, unwittingly becomes an accomplice in a murder committed by the most popular kid in town.


Ethan Engel, 16, leaves his addicted mother's dingy Indianapolis house one night and gets caught shoplifting a frozen dinner to feed his little brother. Upon release from reform school, Ethan and his brother live with a caring
aunt in the suburbs. He stars in football, excels in school and falls in love. Life is wonderful until his brutish father forces them to move with him to tiny Huxley,
Indiana. Barred from the football team, longing for his girl in Indianapolis, and chafing under his disparaging father, the senior class newcomer strives to make new friends.

One is Josh Walters, star athlete, "A" student, Sunday school teacher - and also a closet gay homophobe from an evangelical family. Josh talks Ethan into joining him to case the rural home of a reputed gun collector, drug
dealer and predatory homosexual. Upon arrival Ethan looks on in sickened astonishment as Josh shoots the man then chops his head
open with a hatchet.

Ethan is convicted as an accomplice. In prison he surmounts the loss of his girlfriend, abandonment by his parents, and a brutal corrections system while his aunt wages a courageous and successful fight to free and redeem him.


The Accomplice was inspired by the true crime book Fear No Evil. It deals with the dark side of a young boy’s dysfunctional upbringing that results in his triumph over adversity with the support of his loving aunt.
The screenplay was previously optioned by an Emmy and Peabody award winning producer and was a semi finalist in the 2018 Wayward Film Festival screenwriting competition.

Re: Thrillers With Female Leads Wanted

TITLE: Dangerously Close
LOGLINE: In an attempt to remember the past six weeks, Ashley Reynolds unintentionally puts her life in danger and must rely on a man who works for a crime boss.

Dangerously Close is a romantic thriller/suspense and is written along the lines of films such as The Bourne Identity (2002) and Boyfriend’s Deceit (2013). The story is about a woman who can’t remember the past six weeks and is desperate for answers. She enters a bar that is owned by her ex-boyfriend, Zander, in hopes of finding someone who will recognize her. There she meets the bartender, Hunter Ryan, and within minutes, men who work for her ex-boyfriend try to take her. Although working for the crime boss, Zander Caruthers, Hunter decides to get Ashley away from these corrupt men. Now both Hunter’s and Ashley’s lives are in jeopardy and they are on the run as she tries to piece together her sporadic memories that surround the mystery of what has happened to her.

The exhilarating suspense and high stakes in Dangerously Close will appeal to a very wide audience since romantic thrillers are on the rise. There is a little violence in this story, but it remains wholesome with no swearing or sex. The ending of this plot will bring a shocking, unforgettable twist.

As an award-winning, prolific, and best-selling wholesome romance author with over 80 novels, I’m now stepping into the lifestyle of a screenwriter. Please let me know if I can send you my script. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Best regards,
Marie Higgins
