Logline: Sometimes what brings out the hero in you, brings out something far worse.
A little bit about the script I’m working on and me:
I had planned on making this a movie with about 5 altogether, but I got so into it it would've had to be a series.
So this script is what would be a season, only a season would be more stretched out and more developed. Such as, the hate monger and Sue/Malice.
The Monger would be able to spend a good part of the season messing with her head like it was on the Hannibal TV series.
I of course would have liked to submitted the idea to the studios/comic company but they don't take submissions, ideas etc.
I think the idea is there with the right help it could've been interesting. Hopefully something people would've liked. But, we'll never know.
I'm still learning about writing, so, understanding the three act structure etc and time is a challenge for me.
This version is based on the John Byrne era in the 80's.
Plus, I tried to honor the original Stan Lee/Kirby version of Sue's dad is in prison for murder and he didn't want Johnny to know, to say he was dead.
I took that and tried to build and twist on that. Such as I try to explain why each one has different powers even though same cosmic rays, etc.
I twisted things around by having the hate monger play a part in their development making Malice the first villain as he will be a professor-x to Sue.
Also, I didn’t like in the comic the Monger was an android I think it was. Mine, he’s just a twisted individual.
I didn't set out to make this version dark just because it's the in thing now, but the first one sets up the others and to come from a place of the FF to be being so dysfunctional.
It gave me something to build on.
I added at least three characters that are not I the comic. One, to lighten the mood such as Johnny's agent Amy. It was getting depressing enough to where the script should come with a razor.
So she added humor without making it silly (I hope). So my dynamic would be Reed and Sue are the parents and Ben and Johnny are more the kids.
Eventually the FF would be more like the comics more fun etc, but they have to get there after all the dysfunction. There's a reason to get there.
So I would like feedback not just from writers, but people who enjoy reading, fans of film and television and of course, fans of the Fantastic Four comic. Do they like my vision of the FF?
I know I could use notes on my writing its self. I have an alphabet of learning disabilities, so stating the obvious may not be that simple for me.
I've tried reading script books and checked on a few sites and everyone says something different etc.
So my hopes by putting this out there is one, to get read and hopefully maybe find the Hall to my Oats and find a collaborator who can work with me that has the same twisted visions I have.
Also, just in general, fans of the FF comic, I would like to hear from them as well. Keeping in mind this is a version of them, not trying to say it is the only version, just how I see things.
I can go more into here or e-mail me. I could talk for hours about what I would've liked to have done.
Things such as, in the comic the ship was on a military base and they stole it and I don't think it was mentioned anymore.
I have it where to keep from jail they work with the military for some time.
Also, Reed has money, so when he learned of Sue's dad he bought the prison to make sure her dad was taken care of and respected his wishes to remain there.
I have a DVD-Rom of the first 40 years of the FF.
I wanted to go through and work it in and honor all that came before, but I wanted to get this out and only if it were go get a lot of request would I continue it.
But if no one is interested, then it's just for me. That’s at least one good thing about the internet, you don’t have to suffer alone in never getting anyone to read what you have.
My hope of course is maybe someone will like this version and maybe see fit to let me collaborate on something.
Also, my writing style, though I know it needs work, the overall content, do I capture dialogue well, execute this and that.
Basically, is it anything you'd like to see? One of my script heroes is Shane Black. I enjoy just reading his scripts and for someone with ADD etc. That’s saying a lot.
I hope to have a style one day like his to have it easy to read/hard to put down and some of the best movies out there.
So enough about me e-mail me if want to collaborate or know what else.
