A Just Vengeance
He Waited 40 Years For Revenge...
Genre: Revenge, Action, World War 2
Settings: 1945 Berlin, 1985 New York
Approx Budget to make: $15,000,000.
This script concerns two men who take it upon themselves to continue World War 2 in 1985 New York.
Interwoven with scenes of the older men and their rampage through American city streets, we see the reason why such revenge is needed being played out by their younger counterparts set in 1945.
This film is interesting to me because, as far as I am aware, there really has never been a high budget production surrounding the fall of Berlin and depicting the way it was systematically destroyed by the Allies' missiles. I've only seen this in lesser watched historical documentaries using actual footage from the time.
Setting it in two time-zones allows me to add in another less used trope in action films. That of the old bad-ass story, too often we see young overly handsome people fighting for whatever reason.
Here we get to see two grizzled old bastards who have had 40 years to reflect on their wartime actions duking it out in an urban surrounding of a different kind, one where they feel somewhat left behind.
I cannot afford to make this movie, whilst I would love to direct it in the future, it seems wise to possibly try optioning or selling the screenplay to fund some of my other cheaper ideas.
