Development Pitch

DANNY is an actor who takes part in an experimental program to teach acting to inmates of a local federal prison. While inside, he clashes with one of the prisoners, JERRY, and he is nearly shanked. After being convicted of a murder he didn’t commit, he is incarcerated in the same prison where all the inmates he taught, including Jerry are still serving time. He hires a private investigator as well as a lawyer to help prove his innocence.. Although the PI is long gone, his lawyer continues to work on his appeal pro bono. Danny is attacked and raped in prison, Jerry being behind the whole thing to get revenge on him for their earlier altercation. Danny hatches a plan, and with the help of his workshop friends, he is able to get his own revenge on all four men involved.. Including killing the prison kingpin GIGOLO, who raped him, and frame Jerry to take the rap for it. The warden suspects Danny but can’t prove it and lets him know that he’ll be watching him from now on. In the mean time, one of his friends on the inside has used his own connection to prove that the witness lied and Danny is proven innocent and released. . I believe that this could be a blockbuster film, and a star maker for the right actors. It introduces the viewer to a multitude of characters. Some are good, some are bad, and a few are just evil. Although grim at times, it is truly inspirational I also have an award wining screenplay.
