I need a short script and I need it in a week. I have an investor who is willing to put up a sum of money and property to film. The constriants are:
It needs to be a Thriller (It can be a thriller in the broadest sense of the word, so I’m open to crime stories, supernatural/noir/scifi/comedic/romcom elements. But, it has got to be a Thriller. I need to be thrilled. Also, very important, below find a picture of the set. I got a boat. The boat floats and can be moved. Best yet, we can do anything we want to the boat. Anything
As you know, a magnesium flare went off in my face a few weeks ago. I can’t see anything. I haven’t seen the boat, yet, so I’m going to have to rely on the script to give me an idea of what I’m dealing with. I’ve asked
Can you help me out?
