Gentlemen I believe my script is both commercial and artistically credible. If you agree to make this movie you will be rewarded at the box office and at the awards ceremonies. At its heart it’s a love story but it’s also a coming of age tale. It’s about a young girl who is torn between the boy she grew up with and a beguiling stranger who comes into her life. The twist is that she knows the boy she grew up with is a wild child with a criminal past and the stranger is down to earth with a good job, so he actually represents stability and the guy she’s known all her life is the risk. And while this is going on she starts to see elements of both of them in her own father which makes her realise there is a lot more of her in her mother than she first thought. Throughout the course of the film she realises who she is and what links her to where she’s from…. the um… the script has real… real passion and the characters are three dimensional and while it’s demanding it’s also rewarding and not too demanding… and… and I can sense you’re not… I sense from your silence you’re… did I mention she was a stripper! Yes the girl is a stripper so there are scenes that play out in the strip club and her friends are also strippers. So is her mum! Although we only find out that in flashbacks where she’d be played by a much younger actress. And the guy she grew up with is a vampire! And the new man she meets is a zombie so she’s forced to choose between a zombie and a – and they have armies with them! An army of zombies and an army of vampires which go to war and she’s caught in a middle… with her stripper friends. It’s a zombie/vampire comedy film with strippers and a coming of age story. You will? That’s fantastic! That’s great. Oh that’s brilliant. Just give me a few weeks to um…tweak the script a bit and I’ll have it on your desk ready to talk budgets. Brilliant… mum will be thrilled.
