Urban Drama Screenplays Wanted


Similar to Hustle & Flow. Budget should NOT exceed $20M. Not seeking anything ultra low-budget. Scripts that have won awards will have first priority. NO OTHER GENRES.

Hi, thx for the post on Screenwriter's Market. I've written a script I've spent 2 yrs on called "Guillotine". It's set in the inner-city and it's a revenge tale regarding a vigilante, gangs and police. It's 105 pgs.

"You post a compelling pitch and then they contact you IF interested."

That's what I thought. However, I believe many writers here would be reluctant to pitch their best-thought-out ideas on a public forum where many lurking eyes can read them, rather than just sending the logline/synopsis via e-mail, which is much more private.

I guess you haven't read too many of the threads here. Many writers here post their ideas when the producer didn't even ask them to, because they don't read the instructions. I think the writers here are just dying to get their ideas out there and that is why they ignore the instructions.

It is what it is. The producers post the way they want and it is up to the writer to decide to respond or not. Plenty of the producer's posts give ways to submit your screenplay ideas directly to them IF you just read the instructions!!!!

Peace and love!

My name is Zachary Collins and I have the perfect screenplay written in this genre. I actually have 3 but I will present to you the best one.

Title - A Dollar & The Outs: An Urban Fantasy

Logline - When a magic dollar bill that brings its spender good fortune circulates through the city, tensions rise as a greedy painter, the mafia and a clan of homeless rebels called The Outs all chase the divine currency.

The story is very character driven and has a urban yet mystical feel to it. I think you would really enjoy reading and hopefully producing it.

You can reach out to me for the registered screenplay at mellowxzackt@[sign in to see URL]

Hope to hear from you soon!

Title: XERO NIGHT

Logline: Three humanlike robots are on the run from the military as they attempt to find their purpose and someone to accept them just as they discover wonder, love and begin to feel human.

My name is Ammar Al-Tai and I’ve written an emotive science fiction action screenplay entitled XERO NIGHT that I’d love for you to read. I have a Master’s degree in Feature Film Screenwriting from the Royal Holloway University of London and am thus exceptionally trained in the field. XERO NIGHT received glowing reviews during my degree programme.

XERO NIGHT is an emotional, atmospheric and ambient screenplay that focuses on three humanlike robots that are being pursued by the military just as the robots feel emotion, love and begin to feel human. Close in theme to films like “A.I.” and “Bicentennial Man” XERO NIGHT sees the three robots go on an emotive journey across a near future cityscape using their superhuman abilities to survive in the real world, discover their purpose and over time become more and more human.

Here is an excerpt from the five-page treatment:

Excerpt: “The robots trace a path through glowing neon-green nocturnal fields under the cover of night. The moon shines above. The robots jog to begin with. Calm. Controlled. 03 rushes. Impatient. Reaches a road. The moonlight sparkles the rain-soaked road that gleams with light. 02 watches in awe. Finds it beautiful. 03 dashes down the road. Trips. Falls. Stumbles upon an ability. 03 burns his feet along the road as though on ice skates. Orange sparks fly in an electric flare. Leave a burning neon-orange trail. 01 and 02 imitate 03. Burn their feet along the road. The robots glide together at full speed. It is mesmerising.”

XERO NIGHT is an original, emotive and moving screenplay that I feel you’d enjoy reading and thus is available upon request. The screenplay has been worked on significantly over the last three years and is currently available as a third draft in terms of iteration. I loved working on XERO NIGHT and hope that you’d be interested in reading the complete screenplay.

Please do let me know if you’d like to request the screenplay for consideration. I can be contacted at the email address listed below and will endeavour to respond swiftly.

I haven't seen the movie Hustle & Flow so when the producer says similar to it even I wonder if your script fits, Ghost. Just wondering.

There are other posts from producers here that I think would make a good fit for this though.
