“Dark River Lords” – Indie Screenplay Seeking Producer

Option “Dark River Lords” for $3,000 for one year.

Logline: In this intense action/drama, a man undertakes a harrowing quest to defeat the tyrant king of a rival land, and rescue the princess he is responsible for protecting—and with whom his is in love with.

Synopsis: Brom Grey is aboard a river-bound war ship, trailing Hadrian de Bolbec—lord of a neighboring kingdom—who has kidnapped Princess Emeline Payne. De Bolbec plans to force Emeline to marry him, then kill her and her parents. This would make him ruler of two kingdoms. Everyone thinks that Brom is out to save Emeline because, as Captain of her personal guard, he’s sworn to protect her. What no one else knows is that Brom is in love with the princess.

After Brom’s ship is damaged by unusual weapons, he sets out on a skiff to try and catch the other ship. Unbeknownst to him, Emeline manages to escape de Bolbec and takes to the forest to hide. When de Bolbec learns that Emeline is gone, he sends men out to recover her. Brom sees the men leaving the ship, realizes that Emeline has escaped and sets off into the woods after her, following the enemy.

A storm moves in and Emeline takes shelter in a barn. She is discovered the landowner, Thad Dargin. He is a selfish, greedy, lecherous man. When Emeline tried to escape, he threatens her with a pitchfork. She screams, drawing the attention of the enemy men and Brom.

De Bolbec’s men rush in, saving Emeline from Thad, and Thad realizes who she is. Brom arrives moments later. After a pitched battle, Brom escapes with Emeline and Thad into the woods, forcing Thad to help, as he knows the land. De Bolbec’s men give chase.

When Thad tries to help de Bolbec’s men, Brom kills him and escapes with Emeline to the newly-repaired warship. They set out for home and Brom declares his love for Emeline. He is shocked to learn that she feels the same about him. De Bolbec follows them in his own ship.

Arriving at Castle Payne, Emeline’s parents are ready to heap rewards on Brom, but de Bolbec arrives. He activates groups of “sleepers” in the Castle Payne, setting off a large battle. The battle ends when Brom kills de Bolbec in a duel.

The film ends with the wedding of Brom and Emeline and the knowledge that, one day, Brom will rule as King.

“Dark River Lords”—Screenplay Available

Dark_River_Lords_Title

Logline: In this intense action/drama, a man undertakes a harrowing quest to defeat the tyrant king of a rival land.

“Dark River Lords” is a feature-length screenplay. The project is intended to be live-action, but would also work well as a CGI film. As a live-action project, the budget would be extensive, requiring custom-built warships, and replicas of ancient real-world weapons of war devices. There would probably also be a need for contained, controlled river sets for some of the locations in the film, as well as extensive outdoor shooting. The outdoor scenes would be a combination of daytime and nighttime shots.

The tone of “Dark River Lords” is serious action/drama. There is also a romance woven throughout which is key to the film’s plot, and the unveiling of events.

A draft of the “Dark River Lords” script is available for option or sale. If anyone is interested in reviewing it, please get in touch with me via the “Contact” page on my website.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Amazon Studios Reply—”Dark River Lords” Update

Dark_River_Lords_Title

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but… Amazon Studios turned down “Dark River Lords”. The message from them was simple:

“Thank you again for creating your project, Dark River Lords, at Amazon Studios. The option and evaluation period is now over, and we have chosen not to exercise or extend our option on your project.

Since you submitted your original work privately, you may now either make it public, by clicking “Make project public” on your project page, or remove it from Amazon Studios, by clicking “Remove my project” on your project page. If you do neither within two weeks from the date of this email, you will no longer have the option to make it public, and it will automatically be removed from Amazon Studios. Please see our FAQ for more information about what it means to remove your private project from Amazon Studios.

We encourage you to keep your work available for public review at Amazon Studios, and wish you all the best with your project.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Studios Cast and Crew ”

So, despite the fact that “Dark River Lords” ended its voting period with 350+ wins out of 370+ rounds of voting, Amazon Studios declined the project. They didn’t bother to explain why. I have zero clue what it takes to get them to option a project.

Anyway, “Dark River Lords” is, once again, up for grabs for any producer interested in optioning the project.

Logline: In this intense action/drama, when a princess is kidnapped by the king of a rival land, the captain of her personal guard will stop at nothing to secure her freedom.

Any producers out there interested in “Dark River Lords”, please get in touch with me.
