Latest project

I am almost done with another rewriting pass through "Desperate Plan", a script I started writing about four years ago. Logline: POT-SMOKING, UNDERACHIEVING MBA AND THREE TENNIS BUDDIES TRY TO KNOCK OFF ARMORED CAR TO OBTAIN INSTANT WEALTH AND REVENGE ON COMPANY. It weighed in at 121 pages, about ten page too long, so I'm reviewing again to see where I can trim the fat.

That sounds ve-rrry in-ta-rrresting.

I keep returning to this project so the theme of the script -- how we handle the uneven distribution of wealth/tension between rich and middle class must be important to me. The four main characters are based in part on myself and my 3 tennis-playing friends but pretty loosely based.
