Logline

What if you exist in two universes? And what if you must choose one? “Intersection Man” is a hard science fiction thriller set in the post-2025 period. Levan Lamarr, a former Marine, is dying of cancer. His wife, Mira, is pregnant and due to deliver their first child in a week. A mysterious scientist named Jonah Salter contacts the Lamarrs and claims he may have a cure for Levan’s cancer. The scientist’s device, the “Entangler,” can, in theory, restore the patient’s health. With the help of Bheem, Salter’s trusty Artificial Intelligence, Levan undergoes the procedure. During the healing procedure, the device creates a Quantum Entanglement between two of Levan’s bodies, each of which exists in a separate universe. Both bodies share a single consciousness. This entanglement is expected to last a few days. Levan, who is now cured, perceives both universes superimposed. The two universes are identical until Dr. Salter creates a divergence. But a series of unexpected events follow and things go horribly wrong.

Development Pitch

'Intersection Man' has three sections, Book 1, 2 & 3. They follow sequentially and is part of the larger story involving the main characters, Levan Lamarr (ex-marine), Mira (Levan's wife), Dr. Jonah Salter/Fabian Berkovits (the scientist), Salter's AI called Bheem (Gaia), Lucius (Salter's alternate self), Rohit Shah (the Indian billionaire), Aman Shah (Rohit's son), Chris Rosen (the powerful antagonist) and Bill Taylor (another psychopathic villain). There are also Levan's five army buddies who take part in several dangerous missions led by Levan. The first two sections have cliffhanger endings. In the 1st section, set in Florida, 2025, veteran Levan Lamarr is dying of cancer. His wife, Mira, is pregnant. A scientist named Jonah Salter contacts the Lamarrs and claims he may have a cure for Levan’s cancer. Salter, owner of Salter Pharma and one of the richest men in the world, is a brilliant but reclusive scientist living alone in a private island off the coast of Florida. His device, the “Entangler,” can, in theory, restore the patient’s health. With the help of Bheem, Salter’s trusty AI, Levan undergoes the procedure. During the procedure, the device creates a Quantum Entanglement between two of Levan’s bodies, each of which exists in a separate universe. Both bodies share a single consciousness. Levan, who is now cured, perceives both universes superimposed. The two worlds are identical until Dr. Salter creates a divergence and things go horribly wrong.
