“Dart” – Indie Screenplay Seeking Producer

Option “Dart” for $3,000 for one year.

Logline: After an experimental Graves Disease cure gives comic book artist Porter Hardwood near-super speed, he uses his new power to fight crime.

Synopsis: Porter Harwood is comic book illustrator struggling to meet a deadlines because he suffers from Graves Disease. He undergoes a new treatment. His parents and girlfriend, Sonja Carruth, are there to offer support.

Meanwhile, a drug cartel is building up its business in the city.

Porter realizes something in him has changed. He has what amounts to a super power now—he can move at near-super speed. Porter keeps this a secret and begins trying to learn to control this ability, using it in his work to avoid missing deadlines.

Meanwhile, the cartel’s business continues growing.

Realizing that he has an ability that can make a difference, Porter fashions a costume for himself and hits the streets as a vigilante crime fighter. Upon stopping a drug deal, Porter discovers a case of money. Unable to help himself, he takes the cash with him.

Dart’s activities are quickly noted by the cartel. The two top men in the organization—Horacio Rosul and Dillon Whittenbeck—begin looking into their new problem.

When Porter begins treating Sonja to expensive meals she grows suspicious. When he loses control of his power in front of her, she forces him to tell her what is going on. Stunned at his explanation, she leaves him. Distraught, Porter hits the streets harder.

The cartel discovers Dart’s true identity and sends an assassin after him. Injuries Porter sustains during the attack cause muscle spasms which require him to seek medical treatment. Curing the spasms cures Porter of his power.

Not knowing what has become of Porter, the cartel sends the assassin to kidnap Sonja. They contact Porter at a public event and tell him to come and get her. Porter arrives, powerless, and he and Sonja manage to escape. In the process, the cartel leaders and the assassin are brought down.

The film ends with Porter and Sonja living the good life in Key West with the money Porter had stolen from the drug cartel.
