The Logline Friday (What’s Logline Friday?) winner for Friday, October 22nd, 2010 is…
The mysterious “Screen Writer” a.k.a. TheWriteScript
@TheWriteScript – An older couple decides late in life to spice things up and open a Mexican restaurant. It’s an instant hit…with the country’s most vicious drug lord – that’s the good news. The bad news? Their son, the police chief.
Basing a script around current events is often tricky, but if you can pull it off, do it; A socially relevant topic is a great way to get attention.
This idea can be executed in so many ways, it’s hard to know if it’ll will be more Godfather or Once Upon A Time in Mexico. Either way, I’d give it a read.
Congrats to “Screen Writer” who wins free notes on 5-10 pages on any script she wishes to send my way!
Did I say “she?” I meant, I have no idea of the gender of the writer.
All I know is that they have won Logline Friday once before. Check out Past Logline Friday Winners to see if you can figure out which one is theirs.
See ya next Friday!
