Re: Seek Family Comedy Screenplays w/Unique & Quirky Characters


Would "Ultimate Man" and his "League of Bargain Heroes" be unique and quirky enough for you?

In this superhero comedy, Ultimate Man and his League of Bargain Heroes defend America from The Vlad’s evil plan to conduct cyber-crime through hacked video game consoles.

For those who watched Deadpool and afterward found themselves asking, “Hey, could a movie like this work with off-brand superheroes?” - the answer is a resounding yes.

Welcome to the League of Bargain Heroes.

Times are tough for the League but they’re hanging in as best they can behind the leadership of Ultimate Man, a former game of Ultimate champion.

Ultimate Man’s world gets turned upside down when The Vlad uses his considerable Eastern European charm to steal Ultimate Man’s girlfriend away from him.

The Vlad is the owner of the newly-opened “The Vlad’s Electronic Superstore.” The store offers an on-going contest to win a Hack-Box gaming platform. Countless customers win themselves a Hack-Box.

Shortly after The Vlad opens his store, a wave of cyber-crime sweeps through the city. Many citizens lose their homes and turn to the League of Bargain Heroes for help.

Stumbling bumbling and fumbling their way through the case, the League finally figures out that The Vlad’s Hack-Boxes are the source of the crime.

This leads to a showdown with The Vlad and his goons.

The League are forced to use all of their special skills and between them they prevail in a very twenty-first century way, rescuing Ultimate Man’s girlfriend in the process.

The Vlad is the character who will end up being the fan favorite. He sees himself as a funny guy and his over-confidence makes him fearless. His lack of familiarity with American culture often leaves him looking foolish although he doesn’t know it. His verbal jousting with Ultimate Man will make him an iconic comedic character.

Given that Deadpool established the ability of a nearly-unknown superhero character to gross three-quarters of a billion dollars worldwide, one has to wonder how many other ways there are to crack the superhero comedy genre?

That is the Ultimate Man question.

Re: Seek Family Comedy Screenplays w/Unique & Quirky Characters


Hello,
This is a "B' movie Sci-Fi comedy, in the spirit of the classic black and white films of the 1950's. It is called, 'Voombodian Women From Outer Space." "An army of conquering Amazonian women from the planet Voombodia, invade the earth in search of male humanoids for it is the only thing they eat! All the women of earth, must come together with a plan to save their men; or the human race as we now know it will cease to exist."
No one ever really gets hurt, or dies. No guns or weapons. It is fun, campy, lots of characters, a fair number of locations. There was a staged reading at The Sierra Madre Playhouse a few years back. Here is a scene from the reading. The Voombodians wrap their arms around their male victims, emiting freeze dry rays, which turns them into sparkling crystals, to be later re-constituted for consumption.

Re: Seek Family Comedy Screenplays w/Unique & Quirky Characters


I’m a published author, born in Atlanta, grew up in the Deep South, and still have a mad on about Sherman’s March to the Sea. My characters are authentic, complex, and thoroughly Southern. I have lived in and around the Nashville area for more than three decades and have a great feel for the area, the music industry, and its fans, which gives my writing that ring of truth everyone seeks.

In keeping with my Nashville focus, I have completed a comedy screenplay, The King’s Cadillac. I am adapting the screenplay as a book, as well.

LOGLINE: Two lovable, quirky, bumbling bubbas inadvertently steal Elvis’ Gold Cadillac during the Great Nashville Flood, disguise it as a hearse so they can take it on adventures, and end up saving it, a die-hard Elvis fan, and themselves.

Semi-Finalist – 2017 Los Angeles CineFest
Quarter-Finalist – 2017 ScreenCraft Comedy Screenplay Contest

Thank you,

 The King’s Cadillac Short Synopsis

Wanda Fergus is calmly pouring out water from pots and pans filled with rain that has leaked through her kitchen ceiling. Her ripped, handsome, very kind 36-year old son, Bobcat, comes in to say goodbye as he heads out to work. Bobcat and his childhood friend, Skeeball Turnipseed, who has little man syndrome and is the muscle of the pair, own a chop shop in a ramshackle tobacco barn beside the old, clapboard house.

Their business is stealing cars, “restoring,” and reselling them. Even though they only finished 9th grade (“You mean our senior year”), they are automotive geniuses, each having their own type of unexpected brilliance, flaws, and sophistication.
 
Bobcat wants to go to downtown Nashville to find “strays” that are available due to the flood. Skeeball refuses to go out into the pouring rain and flood, but Bobcat bribes him with the promise of “them ham and cheese fried pies from the Farmer’s Market.” Skeeball, an unlikely foodie and wine connoisseur, corrects him: “Empanadas. They are prosciutto and Gruyère em-pa-na-das.”
As they cruise around flooded downtown in their state-of-the-art wrecker rollback, the Frankenwrecker, they stole and tricked out, they notice that even though the Country Music Hall of Fame (CMHOF) is closed, the back service entrance doors are open. Bobcat tries to convince Skeeball, who spooks easily, to sneak in with him, but he is reluctant: “I don't do museums. Dead folk and all their old !@#$. They gimme da willies.”
Bobcat goes in anyway and Skeeball warily follows. They are tiptoeing around when the CMHOF manager comes up behind them, thanks them for “coming so soon,” and walks them to Elvis’ Gold Cadillac Limo, mistaking them for a company he had just called. They are stunned when he hands them the keys and tells them that he will call them when it is safe to return the Caddy. They play along and inadvertently steal Elvis’ Gold Caddy.
They take it back to the chop shop for safe keeping and for Bobcat to show off to his mama. Bobcat was conceived just after Wanda went to an Elvis concert, which she remembers well: “’Member I met you (Elvis) back stage 'cuz I won a pass from the radio station?... And I got you to autograph my girls? Lookie here. [pulls down blouse to show top part of her boobs] Sorry these ain't as bouncy as they was in ‘74. I was a perky 36D then. I'm more like a 42 long now.”

The boys show Wanda the Caddy and she immediately knows what it is and wants to ride in it. Bobcat tells her it’s just for “looksies,” but she strongly objects. Bobcat and Skeeball have no choice but to figure out how to make Mama happy yet not harm the Caddy, and not get caught by the authorities. They decide to disguise it as a hearse by transforming the rear end, “like a skirt on a weenie dog.”

On an adventure, Wanda rides in the back of the hearse, soaking up her connection with Elvis’ spirit, talking with him, and even looking for “a hair or toenail clipping” so she can get his DNA to make her an Elvis of her very own. Skeeball chimes in: “I wouldn’t mind having an Elvis toenail. You know. Just as a keepsake.... I wonder if she’d share.”
Wanda wants more adventures with Elvis’ spirit. They take the Caddy to Graceland, who turns them away, because a hearse at Graceland would “draw the conspiracy theorists like hippies to tie dye.” Skeeball drives back home while Bobcat naps. On the way out of Memphis, he unknowingly cuts into the middle of a long funeral procession, causing half the cars to follow him back to Nashville in a wild ride.

Then Wanda wants a big Elvis teddy bear, and they go in the hearse to a carnival. Skeeball’s former stint as a carney gives him an edge in winning at the games, and ends up with them being chased by angry carnies, who he easily fends off. They escape in the hearse in a frenzy, slinging mud everywhere.

As time passes, their anxiety about having the Caddy mounts. They try to figure out how to unload it on someone who will not rat them out and not harm it. Skeeball remembers them helping a rich Japanese man, Kotone, who is obsessed with Elvis. They decide to show up at his mansion to give the Caddy to him. He cannot take the Caddy, but wants to have an Elvis Experience in the Caddy and offers $25,000 for it. After he finishes his experience the next day, they decide to give the Caddy back to the CMHOF Manager, since he would also be implicated in the loss of the Caddy and might not rat them out if it’s safely returned.

Bobcat, Wanda, and Skeeball are all in green camo, including face paint, to meet the CMHOF Manager on a back country road at sunset. CMHOF Manager arrives, and reaches for his cell phone to take photos of the transaction, but the boys think he’s reaching for a gun. When he pulls out the cell phone, they all quickly pull theirs out (including Wanda who is hiding in the nearby bushes in full camo drag, face paint, and foliage) and aim it at each other like a circular firing squad while they take photos and video. They take the CMHOF Manager to the Caddy, which looks normal except it’s black. He goes into a rage thinking they have ruined the Caddy. They assure him it will be fine once it’s rinsed with plain water. He drives the Caddy back to the CMHOF after dark. While he opens the service entrance, a thunderstorm comes and washes the Caddy back to its original color.

Back home, Wanda, Bobcat, and Skee (still in their camo get-up) are talking about their adventure when the lottery numbers come on the TV. Wanda always plays Elvis’ birthday and death date numbers but has never won before. Wanda wins the $420 million lottery using Elvis’ numbers. When she faints, Elvis appears to her in a dream and tells her she doesn’t have to worry about a thing from now on. He wipes his sweat with a scarf and throws it to a present-time Wanda in the audience. When the boys lift her onto the sofa, they see the scarf underneath her.
THE END

The Do-Over

A discontent man has an aneurysm and later a tumor that causes him to revert back to being a kid again and realizes what he’s been missing in his life when befriends his girlfriend’s son.

Bob was discontent with his life, his girlfriend, Mary, and most importantly her twelve year old son, Kurt, who just wanted a friend. It was when an aneurysm ruptured that we discover a big change in Bob’s personality. He was released from the hospital to Mary and thought he was twelve again. Over the course of a couple weeks, Bob would build a special bond with Kurt, playing video games and hanging out.
A class reunion and the “eighties” music would eventually jostle his memory as he wondered who he was and why he wasn’t happy in his past life. After another headache, the doctor learned of a bigger problem, a tumor. Bob was operated on again and the pressured was relieved from his brain causing him to go back to his normal self. He realizes that he was happy with “pizza and movie night” amongst the many things he enjoyed with Kurt and Mary but wasn’t ready to make a commitment of marriage until Kurt’s father wanted custody, primarily out of spite. Bob would make the commitment he never knew he was capable of and keep a special pact with Kurt after he decided to marry Mary.

Re: Seek Family Comedy Screenplays w/Unique & Quirky Characters


"HAIL MARY" adapted from my novel, begins with the death of retired detective "Bulldog" Drummond. The same morning, his son, Creighton has to come home to his wife and 2 kids to tell them he's just been fired.
They go to his mother's apt. and convince her to stay with them for a few days until after the funeral.
Before they know it however, Mary has called a couple of old gals from school days and soon they disappear (sans license) in Creighton's car.

Between liquor and pot, the three slightly tarnished Golden Girls get into all sorts of trouble, but in the end, Mary gets Creighton's job back with a raise and everybody's happy except for the three fire-scorched bikers who sit in jail and rue the day they ever messed with those little old ladies.

I had this optioned but the financing fell through. I'll send a pdf copy of the script upon request. Thanks, Carl
