NEW EARTH In a future where global warming made Earth uninhabitable, a space commander struggles with his orders to invade an alien Earth-like planet to save civilization. I was told that my new Sci-Fi script called "NEW EARTH" was a great idea and hook, but too big without IP or a Book to back it up. Now, I'm confused, because all I hear from the industry people is HIGH CONCEPT, HIGH CONCEPT, but when a High Concept is brought to the industry people, they say it's too BIG to sell to a studio without IP or a Book to back it up. I've been told to this by a few managers and a Producer at Platinum Dunes (Michael Bay's Company). His actual words was "I think this is a great strong idea with a clear hook, but for sci-fi ideas this big we have had trouble selling it to studios without original IP backing it up". How can we as writers break in the industry with BIG CONCEPTS and the execution to go with it, without being shunned away, because your IDEA is too BIG? The synopsis can be read below... Thank you... “New Earth” is written along the lines of films such as “Star Wars”, “Independence Day” and “Predator.” The story is about a recently retired Raider Marine named Markus Price who’s called upon to lead his old squad to invade an alien Earth-like planet called “Tataria”. After learning about the perishing Earth, he reluctantly reinstates to save his family and civilization from extinction. But throughout his journey he questions his morality; follow orders to commit genocide on another race to save his own? On the flip side of things on Planet Tataria, two brothers are at odds with each other about who is the rightful heir to the throne after their father’s sudden death. One brother lust for power and war as the other wants peace after learning the new arrival of the human invaders. With war on the horizon, the brothers must decide whether to work together for the survival of their planet and its people or remain at odds with each other that causes a divide among the Tatarians. As mankind stands on the brink of extinction, the world's military forces wages war on the planet Tataria to take as their own. One race faces genocide and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people, and their planet. As the action advances, leaders from each side begins to ask the question: Is war is the only answer?
