These are always a blast, so I figured some people may be interested in taking part again especially since many of us have more time during the summer to keep up with it. If you aren't familiar with the way this works, I'll give you the gist....

This will operate like most drafts on this forum, snake style, 10 participants, 10 picks per round, eight rounds. The last two rounds will be two actors per pick. Realism also plays a small part in this. Pick actors who would work well with the director you picked, and for god's sake make sure they're alive. There will be a 24 Hour time limit for people on the clock, after that your pick will be skipped until you come in and make your pick.

For now I'll implement the same positions for drafting

1 director (picked in the first round, which is the director round)
2 lead actors/actresses
3 supporting actors/actresses
4 minor roles/cameos


Once you have drafted your director and cast, we will all compose very quick write ups on what our films will be about. Don't be too intimidated by this part, you don't need to write Shakespeare. A brief paragraph and character list will do unless you want to expand upon it. Some people wrote some pretty elaborate stories last time. I actually ended up turning my movie idea into a short story for my fiction class.

You can read up on our last draft if you don't quite understand, this will operate in a very similar way.

So I'll now take requests to participate, first come first serve. So if you want to play again, or missed the last one, feel free to make a post here.

Dead Drop

Directed by: Christopher Nolan
Written by: OHIO

Plot Synopsis:
The movie takes place a few years from now and focuses around a group of agents who are part of Penumbra. Penumbra is a secret joint unit between the United States and Great Britain. The group was formed in direct response to terrorism cells that were threatening both nations, but with the early success of the agency it evolved into much much more. Penumbra has become the most funded and versatile of any agency in the world. Only the President, the Prime Minister, and a very select few of individuals are aware that this agency exists.

The movie will begin with an overview of what Penumbra is involved with throughout the world. Whenever something needs resolved, be it an assassination or a coup or any other thing that needs to be facilitated secretly, a single agent is dispatched to deal with it. Various agents are shown at this point all around the world, and a quick rundown of what is needed to be done is given.

Sam Tenner will then be introduced, as will Mark Bellows aka "tenpin." Bellows is undercover within Canton's (a man of great interest to Penumbra) organization and has been so for far too long, in his opinion at least. Bellows has had to commit countless crimes, including murder, in order to keep his cover. Tenner is Bellows' only contact with Penumbra. Bc Canton has his hand in a lot of international activity Bellows' information has been invaluable. Tenner and Bellows over the years have become as good friends as the job allows, and Tenner has tried repeatedly to get Bellows pulled from undercover duty after seeing how it has damaged him.

Tenner is an agent who feels as if he is being wasted. Simply being an owl between Bellows and Penumbra angers him immensely. He keeps this mostly to himself, but does open up to his liaison with Penumbra, Amanda Parker. At this point you'll see that there is chemistry between them, and there will be plenty of Scarlett for all to see ($$$) Laughing

Fast forward and the crap hits the fan. Agents of Penumbra are coming up dead before they can fulfill their missions. Now, death of an agent isnt new, but is rare, these are the best of the best. But agent after agent soon stop reporting in. With less than twenty people in the world who are even aware of Penumbra's existence, and even less who know specific information about these agents, it seems impossible that this could be happening. And with all the resources in the world at the expense, even Penumbra doesnt know how this is happening. Only one word keeps popping up: Demo. There is very little information on the man they know as Demo, but rumor is he works for Canton.

You'll get to see Demo in action, you will see that he is mostly silent and extremely deadly. The agents, though the best in the world, do not stand a chance against him.

Penumbra very quickly comes to the only logical conclusion they can come up with: Bellows has flipped. Tenner is given the order to eliminate Bellows. Tenner does not think that Bellows is the leak bc he has little to no knowledge of other agents, but he is given the order anyways. He ignores the order and extracts Bellows, and together they go after the Demo.

On Penumbra's end, they send the most decorated agent they have after Demo, Russell Dotson. It has become apparent that this Demo is goin after Penumbra agents, so Dotson heads to Paris, where the only agent currently active (Tamryn Parsons) is.

Dotson, Bellows, and Tenner all converge onto Paris in order to hunt this Demo. Penumbra believes Bellows to be dead and Tenner to be inactive at this time, hiding out somewhere. The only member of Penumbra to know otherwise is Parker, who gives him the info he needs.

The rest of the movie is the hunt for not only Demo but, in Bellows and Tenner's case, who really is the leak within Penumbra.

I hope you at least found this interesting, I dont fancy myself a very creative person so if this is subpar I apologize. Smile

Nietzville

“Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torment of man”

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Opening Scene Teaser

The movie begins with Rysherino Khalipino (Will Smith) running through an alley. He reaches a dead end and is visibly out of breath and terrified. He turns around and this is when we get the first view of his predator. It was once human; the eyes are pure white and the teeth are sharp. A screech escapes its mouth as it arches near. Khalipino's flinches as a scream is heard.

The scene cuts away to Benson Trudell (Daniel Day-Lewis) cradling what looks like a little girl. The camera spans back and reveals Trudell to have a knife and the little girl to have been just killed with it. A shadow appears over Trudell as he looks up and the film cuts away to credits and the title.


Synopsis

In quiet Nietzville, there never was anything overly special or significant about the town. However, an odd and terrifying outbreak soon changes that. The cause unknown, much of the town becomes ill and either dies or turns into a creature that becomes known as a "de-man" by the media due to it no longer being a human and due to the media coming up with cliche crap terms like that all the time. The government decides to quarantine the town. They refuse to go in in fear of bringing the outbreak out to the rest of the United States and the world and they refuse to dispose of the town as it would have obvious backlash. They send in supplies and stuff on a regular basis though.

For the first year, there was pure anarchy. Eventually though, two groups arose. The Alpha Movement and the Omegists. The Alpha Movement hope they can either beat or outlast the outbreak and that they can eventually return to the real world. The Omegists, however, have given up hope in returning to the real world. They want to construct their own society and work to just make the best of the situation. They believe that the hope of returning to how things were is a pipe dream and overly optimistic. Due to these basic philosophical differences and a general battle for power, the two sides have gone to war.

This movie is based three years after the opening scene. Richard (Morgan Freeman) is the leader of the Alpha Movement and Freddy (Al Pacino) is the leader of the Omegists. Richard has recruited Rysherino Khalipino (Will Smith) as his number 1 and Freddy has recruited Benson Trudell (Daniel Day-Lewis) as his number 1. Kelly Morton (Kristen Bell) and Jensen Monroe (Matthew Fox) are also prominent members of the Alpha Movement and Anna Steinbeck (Rachel McAdams) and "Big T" Tyrone Jenkins (Michael Clarke Duncan) are prominent members of the Omegists. "Central" is the man in the middle. He is on neither side, but due to his connections, he receives protection from both sides and received his nickname as 1) his real name is unknown and 2) he is in the center of everything.

There are no true "protagonists" or "antagonists." Those definitions in relation to this story are all... well... relative. It depends on how you look at it.

This story will primarily follow the battle between the two main organizations and the battle between the healthy and the creatures. The struggle of power and hope will be evident. Along with physical aspects of the story though, there will be a lot beneath it too. A lot of the story will also deal with the social and psychological issues that accompany a situation like this. The story is very much multi-layered.

Director



Darren Aronofsky

Producer



Adrenaline_Flux

Cast



Daniel Day-Lewis as Benson Trudell

Benson Trudell is the right hand man for Freddy. In his former life, he had a wide and daughter. His wife died during the initial outbreak and his daughter turned in his arms. Shortly after, Trudell joined up with the Omegists. He is now one of the most feared men in the city.



Will Smith as Rysherino Khalipino

Rysherino Khalipino is the #1 guy for Richard. Khalipino was on a business trip when the outbreak occurred. He has family on the outside and is desperate to be re-united with them. He meets Richard when he is saved by him near the beginning of the outbreak. He is athletic and though he appears hesitant at times, he has gotten his hands dirty when felt necessary.



Al Pacino as Freddy

Freddy is the leader of the Omegists. The Omegists are a group of men formed with the idea that the world as they knew it is no more for those trapped in Nietzville. They believe that they need to jumpstart their own society and believe they should be in power. They are at war with the Alpha Movement.



Morgan Freeman as Richard

Richard is the leader of the Alpha Movement. They believe that hope should not be lost just yet. They believe that eventually the healthy will prevail and that they will be free to go back into "the real world." Until then though, they are at war with the Omegists. It is implied that Freddy and Richard knew each other prior to the outbreak and the last names of both are unknown.



Kristen Bell as Kelly Morton

Kelly Morton is a smart, young, quirky woman that has recently joined the Alpha Movement. She was traveling through Nietzville when the outbreak occurred. She is a law student at Harvard University.



Rachel McAdams as Anna Steinbeck

Anna Steinbeck is "under contract" with the Omegists. Before the outbreak, she was a manipulative con artist who had come to town to pull one of her tricks. She believes that once they begin a new society or they are allowed to re-join normal society that money will again come into play which is why she still puts an emphasis on obtaining it. That and, perhaps, old habits are hard to break.



Paul Giamatti as "Central"

"Central" is the man to go to for what you need. His name is unknown and his backstory is left completely untold in this film. He has connections with the government which is how he directly receives information and goods not made available to others. Of course, it is not a strong enough connection to get him out. Both sides look to him and he, like Steinbeck, believes that money will someday be valuable again to them. The added protection he receives also doesn't hurt.



Michael Clarke Duncan as "Big T" Tyrone Jenkins

"Big T" Tyrone Jenkins is Nietzville's claim to fame. He was a college football stud for the University of North Carolina and would have been an NFL star if he hadn't blown out his knee. He is a part of the "front lines" for the Omegists.



Matthew Fox as Jensen Monroe

The "it guy" for the Alpha Movement. He can get the most use out of anything put in front of him. Along with developing and repairing equipment for use for the Alpha Movement, he is also trying to work on a cure.
