Re: New Production Company Seeks Scripts w/ 1 to 2 Million Budget

I have a script, "Long Deadly Night."
It's a one location action thriller, fits well as film noir.


Logline:
An assassin between jobs, hold up in a rooming house,
reluctantly protects the roomers from a gang of rogue plain-clothed cops.


Synopsis:
In this script, there's humor. There's a little romance. There's a
moral, which is: We must look out for each other. It is a one-location
action, suspense, thriller. The professional assassin has marital arts
skills.

Re: New Production Company Seeks Scripts w/ 1 to 2 Million Budget

Dear Producer,
I am a multi-produced, award-winning screenwriter, with 4 feature film writing credits, the latest of which stars Ben Kingsley.
My latest effort is THE CELLIST, a drama/thriller, which I co-wrote with newcomer Jon Charles. The logline, synopsis and my bio and credits follow.

Cheers,

Logline:
A desperate street musician becomes an unsuspecting mule, or so her handlers think.


Synopsis:
Striking FELICITY, 30s, plays her beat-up cello for donations at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Her playing attracts a Canadian, OLIVER, 30s and his business partner, CONRAD, 60s. In time, Felicity and Oliver 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 Felicity and her daughter, OUIJA, 8, to come north to Canada with him.
When Oliver is murdered there, she becomes a suspect. But Conrad comes to her rescue, spirits Felicity and Ouija away to a private island in British Columbia. One night, while Felicity and Ouija sleep, TWO ARABS visit Conrad. Conrad peels away the repair on Felicity’s cello exposing a priceless manuscript stolen from the Iraqi Museum after the fall of Saddam. Conrad sells it for millions. After the Arabs leave, Conrad tries to murder Felicity and her daughter, but after a fierce struggle, Felicity chokes Conrad to death with her cello bow. Or so she thinks. After one last fight to the death, Felicity and Ouija escape in Conrad’s cabin cruiser – with the cash.
On the water, Felicity’s smile fades into a flashback to the opening scene. While playing in Seattle, she overhears the conversation between Oliver and Conrad. 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 that she chose them, was setting them up -- not the other way round.

Re: New Production Company Seeks Scripts w/ 1 to 2 Million Budget

Hello, I am contacting you in regards to an inquiry about a screenplay that I wrote. The script is based on a group of inmates who are interviewed inside a federal prison. Below is a brief synopsis.

A series of fictional interviews with inmates who are each serving a life sentence in a federal penitentiary.
All inmates discuss harsh realities of prison life. With compelling, dramatic dialogue -- each inmate discusses themselves, the prison community, and other various aspects of their crime which tie them back to their past. Five inmates who are each serving a life sentence are chosen to be interviewed. The first inmate is a mid 50's black male convicted of manslaughter after hitting a man with his car during a shootout. This character has a few scenes without him talking that really give the film a deep dramatic introspection into inmate #1's character. The second inmate is a mid 30's white male convicted of selling narcotics at a high scale level. His uncle plays a role in a few scenes serving as a side character and teacher to inmate #2. The third inmate is a mid 40's convicted serial killer who preyed upon adult women during a three year rampage. He has one depressing and daunting scene in the film where he digs a grave and later fills it back in. His character is southern with an accent. Inmate #4 is a mid 30's white male convicted of killing his girlfriend and another male after catching them cheating. He serves as one of the lead roles in the film as a tipping point toward the action at the end. The fifth inmate is a 20 year old white male convicted of murdering a gas station attendant after a botched robbery. He is the youngest inmate of the five. The film also features a counselor, a young social worker, and the warden/guards very briefly. This film helps to show the raw aspects of prison life and the community that surrounds them. Toward the end of the film we are introduced with a conflict between the prisoners and the staff as a fight breaks out in the final scene.

Re: New Production Company Seeks Scripts w/ 1 to 2 Million Budget

Hi my name is Kamal Huggins and I have a screenplay that is base on a true story. The story is about my relationship with my ex girlfriend.
The story is about a young African American male who falls in love with this Guyanese girl who he believed God told him was to be his wife and everything about their relationship was going great, until she told her parents and they said that they did not want her to be with a black man. The screenplay shows how far the two were willing to go for their relationship. It is a Romantic thriller, similar to that of Get Out by Jordan Peele but different.

Guest Production Company
A brand new production company is seeking low-budget projects (1-2 million). Especially seeking thrillers and dramas.
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.


As an award-winning, prolific and best-selling wholesome romance author with over 80 novels, I’m starting to adapt my stories into screenplays. I’d love to send one of them your way.

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 so she enters a bar that is owned by her ex-boyfriend, Zander, in hopes of finding someone who’ll have answers. There she meets the bartender, Hunter Ryan. 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 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 twist that is unforgettable.

Please let me know if I can send you the script. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Re: New Production Company Seeks Scripts w/ 1 to 2 Million Budget

Thriller.
Please let me know if you'd like to know more about this exciting adventure thriller. Great White Fear encompasses sharks both land based and in the sea!

Synopsis
Great White Fear is an exciting action adventure set in modern times. It tells the story of a group of travelers who set out on an expedition far off the Australian coast to visit a remote island. The Island contains a unique discovery formerly made by outlandish skipper Henry Waugh; a breeding ground of Great White Shark. Seduced by the opportunity for quick money he returns, whilst battling his inner conscience, leading a mismatched group of hopeful travelers to ‘his island’. With the latest equipment on board his luxurious boat he anticipates no problem however, the expedition runs anything but smoothly.

As the characters develop throughout the book the reader will discover each individual’s unique reason for going on such a curious expedition. Great White Fear is an intriguing journey into each character’s past which in turn slowly unravels danger for all on board. Battling against a selection of foes including the journey itself, the sharks, a small group of natives and the disappearance of their captain, the group are forced to pull together in a struggle for survival. During this time they each must discover their own talents and come to terms with their past lives. There is plenty of romance included within the storyline as a love triangle develops amongst three principle characters. Great White Fear takes the reader further than its obvious voyage at sea as it ventures on into many other places, both past and present. Places where regret, heartbreak, fear and murder loom hazily on the horizon.

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.


Synopsis:

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.

Re: New Production Company Seeks Scripts w/ 1 to 2 Million Budget

Hello,

My feature script "Grade A" follows an abrasive health inspector that strives to enter a cooking competition while coming to grips with his own emotional instability. It was nearly fully financed in the summer of 2018 with Peter Dante and Jason Mewes attached, but we fell short of what we needed. I decided to self-finance a short (essentially the first act of the feature script) as a proof of concept to combine with the script. It's just finished editing and I'd like to submit that for your review. Thank you for your time.

Best,
