    Development Pitch

    Before writing this book, I wanted to make a movie of my life events. I realized that writing a book would give me that chance one day. I wanted to do something different, so I wrote a movie in a book. Everything that happens in this book is in a movie format. There's no dull moment, nor overly described events. It's really easy to follow. I think once this book becomes a movie, it will be one of the biggest blockbuster movies of all time. Each chapter in this book, is a movie of its own, three total. Many more movies will branch off this story. That has been my goal from day one... The war Prince will be part of movie history for the rest of time, as Star Wars is now.. I'm currently working on part 2...

    Brief

    Anthony Cast is the father of the War Prince, who is meant to protect Heaven from the forces of Hell. Before Anthony can raise his son, he must overcome his own struggles with supernatural forces seeking to destroy him and his family.

    What We Liked

    - The story will play well with the religious audience. It has an attention to faith, redemption, love and respect that makes it appealing to many. The journey to salvation and the message of undying faith is a positive note that persists throughout.
    - Film is probably the preferred medium for this single arc story. Anthony's son Adrian is born, grows, and saves the world and the Heavens. Similar to the TV narrative, there will need to be some characterization done for the angel B characters to make Heaven a more compelling foil for the events on Earth. The producers will have to get creative with fight scenes and flashbacks because all of the Heavenly lightning and demonic energy is going to be difficult to replicate without some CGI in mind. If it were slated as more of a drama, then perhaps the tension could be built up more in the dialogue and less of the actual fights will need to be shown.
    - For TV this show will need to dive deep into Anthony's religiosity and make some more firm connections. When his son Adrian is born, there should be some foreshadowing as to the state of affairs in heaven that can parallel the drama happening on Earth. The show will have to place more importance on the cast of angels that make an appearance in the text, as they will be the B and C plots that will fill the space for Adrian to be born and mature into his true angelic form.
    - Key points: Faith, Redemption, Family, Goodwill, Second chances.

    Synopsis

    Anthony is a young boy from the town of Suri. He grows up with his mother, and does his best to support them and everyone in his community. He has few friends and relies on an imaginary friend Pops who speaks to him. One day he is walking home late at night and he is approached by a ghostly figure who cannot look him in the eye. He hears who he thinks is Pops and takes it as a warning to leave.

    Anthony is twenty-one when he meets his wife. Not long after he meets with a man named Doc who reveals himself to be Pops and warns him that Anna is pregnant with a special child. Demons begin to haunt Anthony's life after Pops dies and can no longer protect him.

    When Anthony's son Adrian is born an angel comes to him. He says that Adrian is the guardian of Heaven's gates, and he must protect him while he grows up to fight the Devil. For nearly two years Anthony protects his son as he grows rapidly from child to teen to his early twenties.

    Demons attack Earth constantly and Anthony begins to rely on Adrian and Pops in his angelic form to help him take on these demons. When Adrian is of age at the end of the two years, father and son go to fight the Devil who has planted a trap for them in the town of Suri. Together the duo defeat the Devil and travel to Heaven to save it from demonic destruction.

    Anthony meets his father in Heaven and returns to Earth having helped his angelic son Adrian grow to become the eternal defender of Heaven.
