When a space exploration ship crash-lands on an uncharted world, its four-woman crew must survive raiders, deadly creatures… and the secrets each woman holds.
This is my most recent spec script. Felt good, yet somewhat odd, not to be writing a script for someone else. I already have a sci-fi assignment in my portfolio (the official screenplay adaptation of The Chronic Argonauts graphic novel), but this was a story that just kind of took over and insisted on being written. It's a roller coaster ride of excitement and surprises.
Two sisters (who've refused to speak to each other for the last twenty years) are conned by their aging mother into taking "one last family camping trip".
Long ago, I spent a couple of years in Atlanta, Georgia. One of the main attractions is camping and hiking at Stone Mountain Park. We always enjoyed going there. Both the town and the park have a Southern Identity all their own.
So, of course, I had to write about it...
A half-sunken camper, a "seriously ill" mother who is anything but, a novelty shop suitor, and the emotional ghost of a long-gone father are only a few of the conflicts that two 40-something year old sisters will have to face. A Southern dramedy in the vein of Steel Magnolias.
I haven't really shopped it around yet, but someday soon...
