Zombie Playground by Brett Martin – Featured Script of the Month - posted by Don

Zombie Playground by Brett Martin – Featured Script of the Month

Zombie Playground by Brett Martin

Zombie Playground by Brett Martin

Children of cohabiting scientists must overcome their prejudices and battle junk food obsessed mutant zombies that take over their playground. (Comedy, Family Adventure)

Read the Script 93 pages in pdf format

Status: Available

Brett MartinWriter Bio: Brett Martin took to a life under the lights on the stage at a very young age. His mother starred in a production of Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” while seven months pregnant with the lad. Technically making it, “Ten and a Half Little Indians.”

An academic background in journalism and creative writing led to years of relentless malaise. These were followed by a tenure as an Operations Manager for an anime distribution company in New York. That was followed by a stint as Education Director of a wolf rescue facility in New Mexico. Brett got to take wolves all over the southwest and say cool things about them in front of large groups. One of the wolves got cast in a John Carpenter film, Brett did not.

A nasty car wreck reminded Brett that he should write some stories before he can’t write them anymore. His short script, Lie Detector, was recently optioned by Burning Phoenix Films. Zombie Playground is his first original feature. He talks to producers about it, and lots of them request the script, though this may be a tactic to silence the enthusiastic writer, only time will tell.
