We just put a project into development, NO REST FOR THE BRAVE, as a result of Stage 32!
A Navy Petty Officer denounces an illegal scheme to sell weapons to Iran using the USS Kitty Hawk and ends up involved in the Iran-Contra affair. Based on the memoirs Running Scared, written by Navy Petty Officer Robert W. Jackson. [Gustavo Freitas, Screenwriter - Lee Roth, Development Executive/Co-Producer]
Robert, in the NW U.S., found a very talented screenwriter, Gustavo Freitas in Brazil, here on Stage 32. Once the screenplay was written and polished, Gustavo came back to Stage 32 and found me, in Los Angeles, for development and co-production..
With our financier in Canada, who has already issued an LOI for 100% of the budget, we have pretty much involved the entire western hemisphere ... and we're not even in pre-pro yet!
We're all very pleased with how Stage 32 enabled all of this.
