Screenplay the covers multiple genres

Hi all. I am stopping by to introduce myself and to see if there are any producers interested in any new projects. I've written a new screenplay called Lotto. It is a screenplay that follows a man's journey from divorce and financial ruin to becoming extremely wealthy and meeting a new love interest. He begins to live the good life but soon realizes that along with more money, comes more problems. Lotto is a rollercoaster ride that is filled with comedy, drama, action, and romance. It also depicts the state of relationships and marriage in our society today from a man's perspective and does it in a fun and entertaining way. This is a movie with mass appeal and is for everyone. I believe there is a large market for this type of material which will allow for many opportunities to make money and land a large ROI. If this sounds interesting and you would like to learn more, please reach out. Thank you and have a great day.

I would be careful using the Red Pill symbol / metaphor nowadays.

It has been tainted in recent years by the Manosphere; incel mens' rights movements dedicated to misogyny, sexism, and female domination. It's usually associated with right-wing, racist, pro-Trump, white-nationalist crowds.

Best of luck Brett - sounds like you’re on the right path. Never explain yourself to the peanut gallery!

Brett Enstrom

Lyter Daniel Thank you Lyter. B A Mason does have a good point though. It's important to not advertise the screenplay as something that it is not.

Lyter Daniel

You are fine … People will find issues with everything - as long as your authentic and stay true to what you’re about as a writer - all will fall into place. Red pill blue pill … who cares … I understood the context - best of luck!

Brett Enstrom

Lyter Daniel - Thanks brother. I appreciate it. Best of luck to you as well!

Christiane Lange

So, a boy rom-com for grown-ups? :)

Lindbergh E Hollingsworth

Just sent you a DM.

Brett Enstrom

Christiane Lange exactly right :)

Brett Enstrom

Lindbergh E Hollingsworth - Thank you for the message. Just replied.

I'd love to know what RomComs guys like, honestly - I always thought Love Actually, Hitch, and Penelope were great examples of both male and female perspectives.

Brett Enstrom

Karen "Kay" Ross - I'm going with Love Actually, High Fidelity, Crazy, Stupid, Love, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, 10 Things I hate about you, The Princess Bride, Groundhog Day, and Clueless.

Cherelynn Baker

Sounds interesting! If in a "perfect" world, you could cast anyone for the leads - who would it be?

Christiane Lange

Karen "Kay" Ross I am thinking Notting Hill, which is largely from the perspective of the guy. But I know quite a few guys who like rom-coms, so definitely not just a girl thing.

Brett Enstrom

Great question Cherelynn. When I wrote it, I had Jason Sudeikis, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, and Ellen Wong in mind for the main roles. :)

Karen "Kay" Ross

Ooo, great choices, Brett! 10 Things I Hate About You is a '90s classic! And The Princess Bride is legit the reason I fell in love with film.

Brett Enstrom

Karen "Kay" Ross Nice! An interesting tidbit about 10 Things is that Julia Stiles nailed the first (and only) take when she read the 10 things I hate about you poem to the class. Also, it wasn't written in the script for her to tear up during that scene. The director was so moved by her performance, he did not shoot any other takes of that scene.

Karen "Kay" Ross

I think I remember that anecdote, Brett Enstrom, but I love hearing it every time. Perhaps that's one of the reasons we all love RomComs - seeing the actors get emotional, too.
