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


Feature comedy from award winning screenwriter

LONG WAY ROUND

A dysfunctional family travel cross-country in a modified school bus to renew their parents' wedding vows and make one last dream come true.


I believe this script has themes and style similar to that of Little Miss Sunshine and Juno.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

by Nik Steven

Synopsis


Bonello, a hopeless businessman, but brilliant gardener, brings his family to the edge of ruin.
His desperate wife, Isabella, a nurse, keeps her sanity by creating sculptures from pills depicting catholic saints. But the stress is too much even for her: Inevitably, the downward spiral leads to their separation.
Left alone in the flat with an unforgiving but sharp minded and quiz-mad mother-in-law, Bonello sees an opportunity to save his marriage. Wasting no time, he enters the eighty year old onto a popular TV Quiz show. The results of which prove spectacular: Cash prizes, smart cars and holidays come pouring in and instantly turn the old lady, not only rich, but into a household celebrity. Bonello has made the best business decision of his life and the future looks bright. There appears to be no end to this road paved with gold…or is there? Alas, there is. A very abrupt end which comes in the form of a massive heart attack before an audience of 1.5 million viewers! The tabloid press explodes with excitement and label Bonello The ruthless son-in-law out to exploit a poor old lady. Result: Bonello is forced to flee the country, which he does by using a holiday ticket, won during the TV show.

From the balcony of a Marrocan three star hotel with views across the Sahara desert, Bonello keeps regular track of the European press. Since his hasty departure a month previously, it would appear public interest in his notoriety has dwindled to nothing. Replaced instead by topics of climate change, Bonello decides to return home.

As rightful inheritor of the old lady’s substantial winnings, Daughter Isabella finds herself freed from all financial worries and moves back into the old flat. Bonello is also forgiven and allowed to move back in, on one condition: He find himself a gardening job with the local council. Is that too much to ask of a passionate businessman? Only time will tell.

“The Sound of the Game"

A 12-year-old girl paralyzed in an on-field baseball accident heals her broken spirit and her relationship with her father by becoming a radio broadcaster for a minor league team. When her outspoken nature gets her in trouble with the club’s manager, she leaves the broadcast booth and joins her dad in coaching her old Little League team to a title. In the process, she inspires her father to recover from his wounds and remarry her mom.

(Set in the late 1980s, it’s a G-rated baseball version of “The Blindside” with quirky characters and a feel-good ending.)

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


Hello,
I’m writing to inform you about a new and original superhero action movie screenplay, which recently became available for [sign in to see URL] Cash:The Crime Buster features heart-pounding action sequences, an endearing
protagonist and some solid plot twists. The superhero genre is on
display from beginning to end. For example,Billy’s transformation from ordinary boy to crime-fighting lifesaver. Also, the incorporating timely subject
matters, including: election meddling, environmental protections and the rise of populism.
Overall, Super Cash: The Crime Buster has potential to be a really fun action flick.

Logline:
A twenty-year-old man has to go against corrupt politicians who have imprisoned his father for over a
decade as they hope to take control of his powerful company.

My movie screenplay, "Super Cash: The Crime Buster,” focuses on a new hero called "Super Cash" who seeks to end this corruption.

Plot Synopsis
The American economy is at an all-time high but is on the verge of collapse at the hands of the crooked and merciless Ricky Cactus and his henchman and alter ego Taxman who punishes his citizens with soaring tax rates, all the while embezzling the funds.

Growing up in the shadow of his hero father, Billy VanCash learns early on in life that his destiny is to become the next great savoir that the citizens of Arch City, and the rest of the country need. When his father falls into a violent trap, orchestrated by his one-time friend, President John Boot, Billy is thrust into action to rescue him.

Using his newly acquired physical and technological skills, he will fight Taxman and his cohorts in order to save his fellow Americans and finally put an end to the corruption that has a stranglehold over the country. He soon finds out that with enormous wealth comes enormous power; Taxman is freed from prison only to set forth another devious plan to take down Arch City’s new superhero – Super Cash, The Crime Buster.

Illustrations
As a writer and artist, I’ve created my own mythology to capture the whole world of SuperCash: The Crime Buster in the development of the story.

The material is aimed at the public between the ages of 12 to 45 years, is very different from other things since it talks about the existing corruption and unfair taxes by the government.

Please see the attached treatment and let me know your thoughts. The screenplay is available upon request.

All the best,
Enrique Mayers

Super Cash Treatment:
Characters:
Billy Van Cash: The son of William and Lisa Van Cash and a big dreamer. He recognizes the financial and environmental issues his fellow countrymen are suffering from at the hands of a wicked villain named Taxman. He makes a vow to grow up and become the super hero that he feels his country deserves.
William Van Cash: Billy’s father and a loyal servant to his country. He has a long history of fighting for his country in top secret missions. He is Billy’s biggest hero and the inspiration to become Super Cash. He is an avid inventor and believes he has complete the ultimate task in creating a device that will cut energy reliance and help clean up air pollution.

 Theodore Pearling: the great senator and role model and mentor of future president John Boot.
Doris Van Cash: William’s sister and total supporter of the Van Cash family name. She is the one who eventually takes Billy to the Intelligence Academy to begin his training.
Taxman: An evil man who strives to collect as many taxes as he can from everyone and believes he is ultimately above the law. He is constantly protected by a troop of elite soldiers. He runs the area known as the Gulf of Oilton where pollution abounds and black gold flows like rivers. He is after William’s invention.
Ricky Cactus: He is the supreme boss. He even has authority over President Boot and will stop at nothing to get re-elected.
Mayor Bob Cactus: Ricky’s uncle and contributor to President Boot’s campaign.
Joe Green: An honest politician of the people who believes that William’s invention can truly save the planet if built on a large scale and set up around the world.
Willy Eyeball: the head professor at the Top Intelligence Academy and Billy’s future mentor for his training to become a super hero.
Joy Brown: Doris’ assistant and the instant crush of Billy’s.
Judge Bubba: a corrupt judge who will let anyone off the hook for the right amount of cash.
The story of Super Cash the Crime Buster takes place in Arch City, a city in a not too distant future where the planet is wrecked with wide-scale pollution and out-of-control, big spending government. Billy Van Cash grows up looking at father like a national hero for all of his service to his country and secret missions he’s performed. William, Billy’s father, has connections throughout the government, all the way up to President Boot and he uses those resources regularly. He has recently finished an invention that he calls the Tube Filter that has become highly sought after by those that serve good and a few on the evil side of the fence.
    It is this exact invention that leads President Boot to send William on a super-secret mission to the pollution and crime-ridden area known as the Gulf of Oilton under the guise of arresting the perpetrators. Once he arrives, William is instantly caught in a vicious trap that he soon finds out what set by the evil Taxman. Taxman vows to leave William imprisoned for the rest of his life if he does not hand over the Tube Filter to him.
    When the letter from the government explaining to the Van Cash family that William is dead, it causes Lisa to faint and fall seriously ill. Billy stands by her side all the way to the hospital and vows to her that he will help her get better and that he will find his father. It is at this time that Doris comes to Billy with the groundbreaking news that she will usher him to the Top Intelligence Academy post haste because that’s what his father would want and it is his time to fulfill his destiny.
    At the academy, Billy trains under the wise and powerful Willy Eyeball. He has never worked so physically or mentally hard before in his life. Eventually, Professor Eyeball grants Billy his Super Cash outfit, his equipment and vehicles and tells him that he’s ready to go save the world by acting with integrity, humility and always helping humanity. Billy is overjoyed with his new persona.
    Not long after Billy has assumed his new role, his aunt Doris greets him with a letter to Billy from his father. The letter goes into detail about William’s invention and how it can be implemented for use to save the world from pollution and energy consumption and also explains to Billy that he is now 90% owner in the company that controls the rights to the Tube Filter. The letter goes on to explain about how the Taxman and Ricky Cactus are going to do everything they can to take over the company from him and destroy the world’s economy.
Billy follows his father’s directions to find the Fast CashMobile and heads to Oiliton, to search out Taxman and Ricky Cactus. He is officially Super Cash and his time to shine is now. Halfway there, Super Cash gets in a heated fire-fight with a small army of Robotic Soldiers, but he soon discovers that his powers and new weapons make quick work of such an easy foe. The power he has within him is truly exhilarating.
Super Cash fights his way to the Oilton Prison to rescue his father and gets engaged in a massive battle with the armies of evil. He comes out victorious and eventually gets Taxman and Ricky into custody to the elation of the citizens of Arch City. His happiness is short-lived when he finds out about his father’s death. It is then that he vows to uphold the principals that his parents instilled in him and protect the citizens.
Little does Super Cash know that Taxman and Ricky already hatched a plan to bribe Judge Bubba for their freedom.

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


Hi,
This family is unique: a family of lions.
Below are the logline and synopsis


Title of Work: Big Samson: Escape from London Zoo
(Feature Animation Film – approx. 90 minutes)
Logline: Big Samson, the lovable but aggressive lion, makes four deadly enemies as he tries to integrate into a foreign country.
Synopsis:
An SAS assault, a WWE wrestling match, kidnapping and murder attempts, a Miss World beauty contest – these are some of the adventures that Big Samson (the lovable but aggressive lion) gets mixed up in when he escapes from London Zoo to start a new life in a foreign country. In this new environment, because of his selfish behaviour, he immediately makes three deadly enemies – the Lawyer, the Butcher and the Zoo keeper – who all have legitimate grudges against Big Samson. Separately and together, they make repeated attacks and plots against the lion as they try to defeat Big Samson in Part 1 of this exciting story, which has many twists and surprises.
Although Big Samson is the main character, it is often his wife who gets them out of trouble. Her entry to a beauty contest is typical of her approach to problems.
Big Samson's son and daughter (who suffer the typical problems of teenagers as they grow up) provide the second element of the story. Their problems are dealt with sympathetically, tactfully and with a touch of humour.
The story is modern, set in the 21st century and deals with many current issues and problems: disregard of laws and conventions; violence as a means of coercion and compliance; corruption as a way of life; discrimination because of physical differences; men-women equality; addiction to drugs; growing-up adolescence problems and the generation gap; conservation and environmental issues. Furthermore, the main character is very much like Gru in Despicable Me – a lovable rogue, much liked by the present generation.
Because of the many important social issues detailed above, the film would have a wide audience appeal to people of all ages and background, not just to children.
