JUST KILL ME ALREADY (dark comedy)
“Get Shorty” meets “Tootsie”
When a desperate, down-and-out actor crosses paths with a hitman searching for redemption, he drunkenly devises a plan to win the role of a lifetime, but hiring a hitman to eliminate the competition can have deadly consequences.
“I'm gonna get this part if it kills me!”
Think GET SHORTY meets TOOTSIE meets THE MATADOR
Desperate, down-and-out actor JOHNNIE makes a bad move. A really bad move. In a very drunken, fateful, and chance meeting with hitman DANNY, whose ironically developed a bit of a conscience, Johnnie plots insanely to take his acting competition out. Permanently.
The prize is huge - the role of a lifetime. But with every big possible payout comes an even bigger risk.
Johnnie maybe should have suspected crossing paths with a hitman and drunkenly improvising a murder could have possible consequences. Especially when said hitman is on a redemption kick. But he never figured it might be his own life hanging in the balance...
JUST KILL ME ALREADY is a black-ish comedy that rides the line between dark humor and mainstream comedy.
The project has been nominated for, and won, major international Film Fests and competitions.
