Papadopoulos & Sons screenplay - post author Don

Thanks to Marcus for the heads up on this indie film and script (available to watch on Amazon Instant Video).

Papadopoulos & Sons – March 12, 2012 final draft script by Marcus Markou – hosted by: Papadopoulos & Sons – in pdf format

Self-made businessman Harry Papadopoulos has got it all; a mansion house; awards and a super rich lifestyle. However, on the eve of a property deal of a lifetime, a financial crisis hits and the banks call in their huge loans. Harry and his family lose everything in an instant. Everything, except the dormant and forgotten Three Brothers Fish & Chip Shop half owned by Harry’s larger than life brother Spiros who’s been estranged from the family for years. With no alternative, Harry and his family, plant enthusiast James; fashion victim Katie; nerdy Theo and their loyal nanny Mrs. Parrington, are forced to pack their bags, leave their millionaire lifestyle and join ‘Uncle Spiros’ to live above the neglected Three Brothers chippie.

Yet another post about “So Dark” - post author Don

Why? Why yet another post about So Dark? I promise, this will be my last word on the matter for a while. Al Lougher, the director of So Pretty and So Dark was kind enough to let me post the final draft of So Dark on SimplyScripts. So, I’ve put together a little package of the scripts to the two movies as well as embeds of the movies themselves. You can read the script and compare and contrast.

Also, this will be my final post and final plea for you to go to The IndieGoGo fund raising site for So Dark because I have a draft what may or may not be the next in a series of two films already made.

And, I am shit at keeping secrets. All I can say is that the script was written using courior font, is properly formatted and I would very much like to see this get made.

That’s it. I’ve read it and I liked it. I won’t even tell you the title of the draft because I don’t want anyone to get into trouble for leaking it to me. I can tell you that there is a good mixture of consonants and vowels in the title. See? I’ve already said too much.

So. Read the scripts. Watch the first two shorts. Slip a fiver out of the Fat Kid’s piggy bank and help the next film get made.
