About David

Bare knuckle boxer, croquet champion, competitive eater. I am none of these things. I'm a screenwriter living in London. My work runs the gambit from low-budget vengeance soaked thrillers, to coming of age Americana, to high concept time travel romantic comedies.

  • ROMEO AND SPATSKA

    ROMEO AND SPATSKA Comedy Romance Martin Haddox appears to be a bitter, aging man trapped in typical suburban malaise. But Martin has a secret, one he's not even aware of himself--he was a cold war sleeper spy. A romeo spy, specifically, secretly programmed to seduce enemy agents and extract information by oozing charm and charisma, traits that have long since atrophied in Martin. But when his activation code is accidentally revealed through an old radio program, he finds himself taken back to 1984, mentally at least. Vera Spatska, once a beautiful secretary for the head of the KGB, but now a cynical, chain-smoking, rum-guzzling vendor of pirated DVDs in the Moscow ghetto, is about to have her Romeo walk into her life... whether she likes it or not. Was the cold war ever this cold?
