posticon Drama,Sci-Fi, Period, or Horror Screenplays Wanted


 [sign in to see URL] Budget. Male or female leads. WGA Option agreement.

Needed:

 1) Drama feature &/or pilots where there is one strong goal that drives the character through the film, something where there is moral conflict creating moral arguments among the audiences.

 2) Science fiction features &/or pilots that focus on what else is out there, future of humanity, the effects of what we have caused and not so much on aliens.

3) Period Drama feature scripts (no pilots) in era's that we do not explore much in the film/television medium.

Produced Writer's Drama and Period Screenplay Queries


Dear Producer,
I’ve had a hand in writing the screenplays for 4 produced feature films, the most recent starring Academy Award Winner Ben Kingsley.

I have two scripts I wish you to consider:
1). MIGUEL'S CHOICE, a drama about a moral conflict creating arguments among the audiences.

2) MADE IN FRANCE, a period drama feature script set in post-WW2 France.

The loglines, synopses and my bio follow.

Thanks so much,
Richard A. Lasser

MIGUEL'S CHOICE
Logline
When a family’s long-buried secrets destroy their business, a young man is given the opportunity to step in and save it – if he can resist the lure of a street gang.

Synopsis
Against his will, MIGUEL 18, goes to work at Happy Flowers, a neighborhood flower shop on Chicago’s gang-plagued West Side. Its mercurial, HIV-positive manager, ANDRE, puts social justice over profits, but still manages to keep the shop going. But when his father, VITO, is diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition, he and the boys’ stepmother, KATHLEEN, decide to bring in Andre’s older brother, DOMINIC – a successful real estate developer – to ensure the continued success of Happy Flowers. Andre and Dominic haven’t seen much of each other over the years and were never very close. Andre deeply resents Dominic and his wife, WHITNEY’s, decision to transform a neighborhood flower shop into a nationwide “McFlorist” empire. Set against the backdrop of endemic gang violence, the result is a violent clash of wills that unearths the family’s long buried secrets of alcoholism and forced, brother-on-brother incest, and ultimately brings the store down. When a gangbanger tries to force Miguel to kill Andre, everyone’s courage will be tested.

MADE IN FRANCE
Logline:
A teenage boy falls in love with an older woman, and through her sacrifice, and the love of his father, learns the true meaning of life.

Synopsis:
1955, Paris. Mischievous 13-year old COOKIE lives with his loving mother and distant father in a Paris apartment. He is closest to RAFAEL, the grocer -- that is, until Cookie falls in love with LUCIENNE, 25, a ravishing prostitute, who is controlled by her vicious boyfriend/pimp JULES. Lucienne sets the financial bar so high, Cookie cannot possibly come up with the money. And when he finally scores enough to afford her, (through a series of funny petty larcenies), Lucienne tells him she cannot give herself to him until he is a man.
Six years later, Cookie has not only become a man, but a top couturier designer, who has never forgotten Lucienne, though his family has moved away to another part of Paris. One day, in search of her, he finds her at the old building and saves her from Jules, and they soon begin a torrid affair until Cookie is given the opportunity to go to America and work with a famous fashion designer. He begs Lucienne to go with him. She lies and tells him she no longer loves him. But in reality, she knows she would hold him back and keep him from fulfilling his destiny. He leaves, broken-hearted.
Ten years later, Cookie lives a hollow, but glamorous life as a world-famous designer living in New York. When he learns Rafael has died, he returns to Paris. At his funeral, Cookie learns why Rafael treated him like a son. Rafael was his father. And there is another surprise waiting for Cookie in Rafael's farewell letter: Lucienne never stopped loving him. From beyond the grave, Rafael tells Cookie she is ill and near death. Cookie rushes to her and brings the weak, but still lovely Lucienne back to the rooftop where they made love so many times.

Porcelain

THE CURSED (WGA registered)

Page Count: 138pp
Genreemoticonrama

Logline:

Four extremely dangerous inmates are at large after escaping from women's prison.

Synopsis/Details:

Lynn Logan, a child who was abandoned by her mother at the age of 6 and taken by protective services at the age of 10 because of physical abuse she endured at the hands of her father and placed in an orphanage, goes to jail directly from the orphanage at the age of almost 18, because she kills one of the orphanage nuns who was both physically and verbally abusive to her since the day she was left in the orphanage. Having no happy day in her life, now, at the dawn of her youth, she is sent to prison for eleven years feeling betrayed by both her parents and life..
In prison she meets three more girls who ended up in prison by a dirty trick of life and feel the same way, betrayed and neglected by life and by the people they loved. These three girls are: 21-year-old Melyssa Ross Toback, who was wrongfully convicted based on false confessions and sent to jail for drug trafficking, for the crime she didn’t commit. 20-year-old Kacie James, who got in prison for a murder of one of her schoolmates. And, 21-year-old Reagan Wiles, who was sentenced to sixteen years for premeditated murder and attempted murder of her rapists.

Four years later, girls come up with a prison break plan which involves a prison riot and succeeds. Except Melyssa, who is killed by the guards while breaking, the rest three girls, Lynn, Reagan and Kacie manage to escape from prison. Now they are at large. And the next part of their plan involves seeking revenge on everyone who is responsible for their imprisonment.
First of all they find a secure place to hide. Then the first thing Lynn does is to find the guy who gave false evidence against Melyssa. She finds and kills him.
After this, the girls go after Kacie’s ex-boyfriend who was primarily involved in Kacie’s imprisonment. They find him in a bar with his friends and a gun fight breaks out among them as the result of which Kacie ends up dead and Reagan gets recaptured by the police.
Now only Lynn is at large and Reagan is being interrogated by federal agents to find out Lynn’s whereabouts, with no success though. Meanwhile, Lynn finds her mother’s address which is in a different state, and burns her whole family alive at their house.
After murdering her mother’s family, Lynn comes back for Reagan. She helps Reagan escape from the police headquarters and they pick up where they left off.
The next thing they do is to kill Reagan’s two rapists who survived her first murder attempt. But Reagan gets killed in the process too.
Now Lynn is all alone and desperate. She finds her father’s new family and kidnaps his two children. Threatening to kill the children, she demands that he come and meet her alone. The police is already with her father and their first attempt to arrest Lynn when meeting her father, fails.
Finally, the police finds out the place where Lynn is hiding and surround the location. They have to be very careful as Lynn still has the children. With an STF operation they succeed to get into the building where Lynn hides. Lynn refuses to surrender and is shot to death. But there is no sign of the children. The police start considering the possibility that they may already be dead too.
In the final scene, the children are found safe and sound at home when the police drive Lynn’s father and his wife to their house.
