The "Make A Movie" Draft - VI
Draft Thread

It's time for the sixth go around, and it's going to be better than ever! We are welcoming in new faces as well as the usual suspects to join us here. If you aren't familiar with how this works...

The object here is for each participant to draft both a director and all of the actors to appear in a single fictional future film. The idea and story behind your film is all up to you, as you will be giving us the basics behind the story. Obviously the first part of this process is the draft itself. You will pick your director first, in the exclusive director round. You will then be drafting in a typical snake style format across eight rounds to pick your cast. In the final two rounds, you will be making two selections per pick. After the draft is over, you will PM me your write-up, do not post it in the discussion thread like we have done in previous drafts, although you may still give us small details there. Write-ups are pretty flexible. Depending on how creative you want to be, writeups can be as long or short as you want them to be. The only things that are required in a write-up are

Quote:
1. A title

2. A list of characters, short descriptions, and the actor playing them

3. A One paragraph description of the movie

4. (Optional): A full plot description, for those of you really in the mood to bring your movie to light.


Also note that,

- You will be On The Clock for 8 hours since the last selection before you are eligible to be skipped. Once skipped, you may make your pick at any time to make it up, but you can't stop other people from picking once your time is up.

- If you trade any picks from the double-pick rounds, note that you must trade both of those picks together as a package. They cannot be traded as "Round 7a/7b" for example.

- Trades are also being brought back. The rules for trading selections and draft picks are listed here, please read them.


Trade Rules wrote:
- The steps for setting up a trade are as follows. Find another member of the draft who would like to make a trade with you, either negotiate in the discussion thread or through PMs. Once you have made an agreement, both of you must send me a PM giving me the details of the trade. Once that is done, I will make the announcement, and make it final.

- You cannot make trades WHILE you are on the clock if the trade involves the pick you are on the clock for. I don't want you looking to trade down and chatting up people while you are on the clock and slowing the draft down. To prevent this, trading picks must be done before that pick comes up in the draft.

- Obviously, if you trade your director, it must be in return for another director. You need one. You can however have any number of actors that you would like, depending on what kind of film you want to make. That's the reason this whole system is in place.



Changes from the Last Draft

1. The Director Round is back! But with a few changes to it. You will be taking your director before the rest of your cast in an exclusive round of drafting. The director round will have a completely separate draft order from the rest of the draft, and will not be a part of the snake.

2. After the draft is over, you will be allowed a 1 day long UDFA signing period. You can cast some of the very minor roles left in your film. You will post your picks in the draft thread like usual, and it will be first come first serve.


Now that all of that is out of the way, lets start the signups. A couple of you have already expressed interest in joining, so I'll add you to the list right away. You should still be checking in here just to confirm it though. If you don't check in within a couple days I'll replace your spot.

Let the signups begin!

Heavy Rain





Director: David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac)

Adaptive Writer: James McMurry (Vengence)


Cast:


Leads:


Jim Carrey as Ethan Mars



-Ethan Mars starts out as a typical family man, married with two sons. But, after his son Jason wanders off at the mall, a tragic accident occurs, killing Jason and leaving Ethan in a coma. When Ethan wakes from this coma, he is depressed, and his life falls apart. His wife leaves him, his son Shaun is distant, and he starts having random blackouts. During one of these blackouts, Shaun is taken from him, apparently the work of the Origami Killer. But after questionable detective work, it is learned that Ethan awoke with an origami figure in his hand, so he must evade the police. While in full-on evasion mode, Ethan goes through trials set forth by the killer to prove his worth as a father and get his son back.



John Goodman as Scott Shelby



-Scott Shelby is a retired police detective, who now works as a Private Investigator. He claims to be helping families of the Origami Killer's victims, and after knocking out a possessive ex-client, he is followed around by Lauren Winter, as they try to solve the mystery of the Origami Killer. As it turns out, Scott's intentions aren't so pure...



Rose Byrne as Madison Paige



-Madison Paige is a journalist, who suffers from severe insomnia. Because of this, she decides to stay in a motel, where she meets Ethan, who is badly injured after one of his trials. She helps patch him up, and continues to aid his quest to get his son back. During the story she is constantly testing her boundaries as a journalist and as a woman.



Josh Stewart as Norman Jayden



-Norman Jayden is an FBI Profiler sent to aid local PD's in the hunt for the Origami Killer. He and his partner, Carter Blake, don't see eye to eye on what constitutes good police work, and the two clash often throughout. Jayden is aided by new technology known as ARI (Added Reality Interface), but he also has a severe addiction to the drug triptocaine.



Major Supporting Roles:


Jennifer Love Hewitt as Lauren Winter



-Lauren Winter is the mother of one of the Origami Killer's victims, and is also a prostitute. She did whatever she had to do to provide for her family, but that family was taken from her. She is visited by Scott Shelby, and decides to help him in his supposed quest to find justice for the families of victims.



Gerard Butler as Carter Blake



-Carter Blake is the local detective handling majority of Origami Killer related work. He is the classic "bad cop" and often bends the rules to get ahead, and overlooks evidence if it proves him wrong. He and Jayden clash often, but eventually they get the job done.




Minor Supporting Roles:


Casey Affleck as Gordi Kramer



-Gordi is the son of a billionaire, and has always been able to count on his father to get him out of trouble. But Gordi was the last person seen with a boy who was a victim of the Origami Killer, so Scott and Lauren come knocking. Gordi snidely confesses to killing the boy and being the Origami Killer, but before they are able to act, Scott and Lauren are confronted by Kramer security.



David Cronenberg as Charles Kramer



-Charles Kramer is a billionaire, made his money in construction. He warns Scott to stay away from Gordi, eventually admitting that his son had killed the one boy, but as a copycat hoping to get some sort of sick thrill. He insists his son felt deep remorse for his actions, and that nothing would happen again. Scott persists, and he and Lauren are thrust into big trouble because of it.



Tim Curry as Leighton Perry



-Perry is the head of the Homicide division handling the Origami Killer case. He introduces Norman, helps oversee things between he and Blake.



Cameos:


Diane Neal as Grace Mars



-Grace is Ethan's husband. They have a happy life in the beginning, but after the accident and Jason's death, she leaves Ethan and they share custody of Shaun. She gives the police information about Ethan's blackouts and recent behavior, which lead them to believe that he is the Origami Killer.



Joel Courtney as Shaun Mars



-Shaun Mars is the latest missing boy thought to have been abducted by the Origami Killer. He is Ethan and Grace's son, his older brother was Jason.



Ving Rhames as Jackson "Mad Jack" Neville



-Mad Jack is the owner of a junkyard. Jayden finds Mad Jack based on a car that was thought to have been used by the Origami Killer. When Jayden finds some dirty laundry, he and Mad Jack get into a fight, with Jayden eventually prevailing.



Michael Gross as Dr. Adrian Baker



-"The Doc" is a sicko. Madison comes to his house in search of clues, since he was the owner of the location of one of Ethan's trials. She knows he is a sketchy character, so she refuses a drink from him, but when she is caught snooping around, he knocks her out and ties her to a table. She escapes, and has a fight to the death with Baker.



Jason Statham as Andrew



-Andrew is a criminal who has the misfortune of trying to rob a convenient store while Scott Shelby is in it. Scott knocks him out and calls the police.



Ryan Hurst as Troy



-Troy is a possessive ex-client of Lauren's. As Scott is initially leaving her...workplace...he sees Troy walk by, and hears him yelling. So he goes back in and fights Troy. This causes Lauren to follow him and help.



John Ingle as Manfred



-Manfred runs a clock and typewriter repair shop. He and Shelby are old friends, so Shelby goes to him to get information about a typewriter that they Origami Killer used to write a letter. While Scott and Lauren are in his shop, Manfred is killed, presumably by the Origami Killer.



Sienna Miller as Susan Bowles



-Susan is another victim's mother. Scott goes to her apartment, but he finds a suicide note, then proceeds to find her bleeding from the wrists in her bathtub. She survives, and tells him that dealing with the pain of having lost her son, and her husband who left after her son's disappearance, was just too much. Scott cares for her and her baby for a little while, before collecting clues and leaving.



Iqbal Theba as Hassan

-Hassan is yet another family member contacted by Scott Shelby (Hassan's son Reza was abducted and killed by the Origami Killer). Hassan runs a convenient store, and Scott saves him from a robber when gathering information.



Paul Schulze as Nathaniel Williams

-Nathaniel Williams is a mentally disturbed man who fits the psychological profile compiled by Norman Jayden. It is painfully obvious that Williams is not the killer, but after pulling a gun on Carter Blake, Jayden has no choice but to shoot him.



Andrew Howard as Miroslav Korda

-Korda is another suspect who fits Jayden's profile. He runs from Blake and Jayden, but Jayden eventually catches up to him in a meat freezer. After a fight Blake catches up and is able to subdue him. But after questioning they deduct that he is not the killer.



Mark Boone Jr as "Motel Clerk"

-He is the clerk that works at the motel Ethan and Madison are staying at. He is very suggestive towards Madison when she checks in, but she is obviously repulsed by him.



Stephen Tobolowsky as Ethan's Psychotherapist

-Ethan sees him after waking from a coma to help deal with the issue's he's been having. Blake and Jayden try to get information out of him, and Blake's physical tactics eventually work.



Dane Cook as Brad Silver

-Silver is the focal point of Ethan's fourth trial.



Ellen Burstyn as Ann Sheppard

-Ann is the Origami Killer's mother, but she is stricken with Alzheimer's. Madison finds a way to help her remember her son's name.

-Jason is Ethan's oldest son, who is killed on his birthday in a car accident.

-John Sheppard is one of two twins who lived in a run down trailer near a construction site. While playing on the site, John dies after his abusive father refuses to leave the house to try to save him.



Jonah Bobo as Scott Sheppard

-Scott is John's twin brother. He ran back to his house to get help when his brother was drowning, but his father wouldn't help. After John's death, Scott was taken into foster care, where he took the last name Shelby.



James McMurry as Paco Mendez

-Paco is the owner of a club called The Blue Lagoon. Madison seduces him to get information about a building that one of Ethan's trials took place in (she was led here from The Doc's house). She is successful, but when they go somewhere private, Paco pulls a gun and forces her to dance. She outsmarts him, ties him up, and gets the information she needs. Later, Paco is killed by the Origami Killer, who appeared to be an associate of his.

Geffen Pictures and thrILL! Gotten Gains present the adaptation of Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart's best-selling book Disney War to be directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes.





Wikipedia wrote:
Disney War is an exposť of Michael Eisner's 20-year tenure as Chairman and CEO at The Walt Disney Company by James B. Stewart. The book chronicles the careers and interactions of executives at Disney, including Card Walker, Ron W. Miller, Roy E. Disney, Frank Wells, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Michael Ovitz, Joe Roth and Robert Iger.


David Geffen is producing his first film since Dreamgirls and the film will be directed by Sam Mendes (who was given his directorial debut in American Beauty by Geffen for Dreamworks.

Quote:
David Geffen, notorious for his feud with Michael Eisner throughout the years, is the Executive Producer behind the adaptation of the critically-acclaimed page-turner of a book. Most in Hollywood thought a film adaptation would be impossible considering its subject matter but casting is halfway done and the script written by Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin is said to be a masterpiece.


Press release about the upcoming Sam Mendes film Disney War:

Quote:
Geffen Pictures and thrILL! Gotten Gains are pleased to announce the casting of primary roles in Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes upcoming film Disney War. Some of the finest actors in the industry have flocked to the opportunity to work with Mendes and Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin whose script has been declared "brilliant" by both Mendes and Executive Producer David Geffen.

DISNEY WAR

Directed by Sam Mendes



Written by Aaron Sorkin




Here are the key roles that have already been cast:

Ed Harris



-Ed Harris will portray Michael Eisner the former Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company from 1984 until 2005.


Bruce Willis



-Bruce Willis will portray Jeffrey Katzenberg the former chairman of The Walt Disney Company's film division who left Disney to form Dreamworks SKG.


Gary Oldman



-Gary Oldman will portray Michael Ovitz who co-founded Creative Artists Agency (CAA) before replacing Frank Wells to become the President of the Walt Disney Company from October 1995 to January 1997. His tumultuous relationship with his former best friend Eisner resulted in a brutal legal battle.


Michael Douglas



-Michael Douglas will portray Frank Wells the former President of the Walt Disney Company from 1984 until his passing in 1994 from a helicopter crash.


Josh Brolin



-Josh Brolin will portray Ron Miller the former professional football player, the son-in-law of Walt Disney, and a former President and CEO of what is now The Walt Disney Company. Miller was ousted in favor of Eisner and Wells.


Ben Kingsley



-Ben Kingsley will portray Barry Diller the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Paramount Pictures Corporation and Eisner's mentor and close friend.


James Gandolfini



-James Gandolfini will portray Stanley Gold who is the President and CEO of Shamrock Holdings, Roy E. Disney's private investment company. He was on the Walt Disney Company's board of directors 1984; 1987-2003. He and Roy resigned to publicly campaign to oust then CEO and Chairman of the Board Michael Eisner. He also helped oust CEO Ron W. Miller and hire Eisner in 1984.


Stephen Colbert



-Stephen Colbert will portray Bob Iger the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company. He was named president of Disney in 2000, and later succeeded Michael Eisner as Chief Executive in 2005, after a successful effort by Roy E. Disney to shake-up the management of the company. Iger oversaw the acquisition of Pixar in 2006, following a period of strained relations with the animation studio. He also led the company to acquire Marvel Entertainment, further broadening the Disney company's character franchises, in 2009


John Ashton



-John Ashton will portray Roy E. Disney the longtime senior executive for The Walt Disney Company, which his father Roy O. Disney and his uncle Walt Disney founded. He is perhaps best known for organizing the ousting of two top Disney executives: first, Ron Miller in 1984, and then Michael Eisner in 2005. As the last member of the Disney family to be actively involved in the company, Roy Disney was often compared to his uncle and father.


Sigourney Weaver



-Sigourney Weaver will portray Jane Eisner, wife of Michael Eisner, and a pioneer in journalism in her ownright.



We look forward to announcing additional casting to Disney War as roles continue to be cast


No comment about the separate injunctions filed by The Walt Disney Company and Michael Eisner to halt production on this film. Geffen's lawyer told us "there is no basis for an injunction and that production will continue uninterrupted."

Quote:

He's coming back to his family. He is restarting his life, but what he does not know, is that his wife and small daughter were killed over a year ago in a car accident. Wycoff is a broken man. Is life worth living, when everything you have ever loved is gone, and the demons from your past are knocking at your door.





Quote:

I'm really gunning for one director right now as well. I'll be super pissed if he gets taken, but I think I might have one backup who won't be taken.
