Re: Thriller/Crime/Drama/Comedies Wanted


Hi! I have a drama/thriller in which the protagonist is a young black woman in grad school, age 25. It's low budget, with a limited yet racially diverse cast, and mostly takes place within the family home.

PRODIGAL - A repressed grad student's life implodes when her troubled stepbrother's return from rehab disrupts the family's stability.

**NOTE** This script received a Recommend rating from WeScreenplay. It's also a finalist in the 2017 WeScreenplay Diverse Voices contest. ['Cruel Intentions' meets 'Shame']

SHORT SYNOPSIS: The story follows Zora, the demure daughter of a Pennsylvanian politician. When her charismatic stepbrother, Alex, comes home from rehab, Zora is drawn to him. She struggles to find the balance between being her own woman and pleasing her hyper-critical father, who is vehemently opposed to her getting close to Alex. As Zora and Alex form a relationship, family secrets start to unravel, and the truth behind Alex’s dark past comes to light.

Hello!

I have a Comedy Script, that made the Page Awards Semi Final. It's cutting edge and may well become a Cult Classic, if produced right

Logline:

Looking for Jesus:

Fallen to earth, an ambiguous charismatic man instinctively treks to the City of Angels, creating miracles by accident, while saving the spirituality of a rebellious teen scripturing Jesus’ existence

Title: MERCY

Logline: Based on the popular children's game of the same name, four strangers are haunted by an unknown entity, known simply as "the Monster", who terrorizes their minds, as well as their sanity, using the same tactics of the game.

Brief Summary:

Four strangers, with no connection to each other, are methodically sought out by a mysterious entity, known as the "Monster", who has carefully chosen its victims, determined to punish and bring suffering to the evildoers, as well as those it considers "unrighteous", by involuntarily and unconsciously exposing them to a demented and psychological game of "Mercy". The "Monster" inflicts its damage using the very tactics of the game. With the only escape from the psychological torture being the desperate plea for "mercy", those victims consciously aware of the mind game will discover that it's easier said than done. Fate has methodically kept them apart, but "mercy" will strangely enough, draw them closer together.

Genre: Suspense, Mystery, Psychological Thriller, Psychological Horror

Target Audience: Men/Women; 18+

Anticipated Rating: (R)

Actually have a twofer, both with young female protagonist in co-lead with gravy stained, trigger happy, rumpled older male.

Priceless, crime-thriller, "An old school cop and his female rookie partner take the law into their own hands to shut down a human trafficking operation serving the rich and powerful."

The sequel is less dark and follows the continued (mis)adventures of this May and December crime fighting duo:

Reduced Profile, action-dramedy, "An old school cop and his female rookie partner are demoted to Petty Crime when their vigilante activities threaten the re-election of a big city mayor."

Re: Thriller/Crime/Drama/Comedies Wanted


Hi there,

I have a female-driven thriller that appears to fit the bill. Possible co-financing available.

UNDAUNTED

Logline: In the hopes of rescuing her "officially deceased" son, a New York City socialite teams with an ambitious paparazzo to infiltrate a dangerous group that abducts and forcibly fakes the deaths of its members.

Tonally, this is TAKEN meets GONE GIRL -- a sleek, mysterious, non-stop chase. A star vehicle about loss, guilt, and the pressures of high society. Above all, however, it's the nail-biting quest of a young mother who'll crush anyone (or thing) in her way to rescue her son. While commercial, this story doesn't just skate over well-trod ground. It's full of surprise and moments where the audience is forced to abandon the expected clichés.

DRONE GAMES

A support group formed out of a video game rehab camp uses drone paintball to keep themselves away from their video game addiction.

These are all slightly damaged kids who turned to video games to help them deal with their problems. Eventually the video games became obsessive, causing the kids to be even more alienated. They all acknowledge that they need help to achieve a normal level of socialization.

The members of the group watch each other for signs of emotional instability that could lead to a relapse. Their concern for each other is genuine but is masked by a normal teenage reluctance to admit to feelings that could make them vulnerable.

The female lead, Celia, is the emotional heart of the story. She’s the one who most embodies their mutual desire to belong to a group that provides the nurturing that they've failed to find elsewhere in their lives. She's the one most afraid of losing this sense of belonging, and she's the one who feels most threatened by any potential changes to the group.

The male lead, Brendan, is aware of his need for the support of the other group members and works behind the scenes to keep everyone pulling for each other.
The comedic input is provided by the character of Miguel, who urges the group to join him in his "Drone Ranger" persona.

The story is set in the near future when federal restrictions on drone possession combine with a crackdown on drone smuggling to make the devices difficult to obtain. This creates a drone shortage for crime gangs that use the technology for their activities.

When a drug gang offers to buy the group's drones, the kids must decide if they're willing to fight to keep the bond between them. If they lose their drones, they'll also lose any chance at an emotionally healthy future.

Personalities clash as the members of the group struggle to choose between the drug gang offer, and the option of participating in a police sting on the gang.

Eventually the group undertakes the sting operation. This leads to a "dronepocalyptic" climactic scene that rescues the group, and enables them to return to getting "crunked up on drones".

The script has a “Breakfast Club” kind of feel, with kids dealing with youthful alienation, but updated with twenty-first century issues.

The lead characters are all in their late teens.
