Development Pitch

When the ride-share industry destroys his life and caused him to lose everything he holds dear, a man plans and carries out his murderous revenge against the industry—one ride request at a time. The audience: everyday 4-5 million people pick up people in the US as a ride-share driver either part time or full time. An additional 1 to 2 million people use a ride-share service to get from Point A to Point B daily. That's roughly 60 million monthly users who all have had at least one bad experience either as a driver or a passenger. If just 5 % of those people go to see this as a film that's roughly 3 million people spending 10 dollars at the theater, that's 30 million, if they bring a date, that's 60 million dollars.The movie could be made for less than a million, do a big budget film maybe 5. That's a lot of profit for all of us. I personally think that if done right, this could be much bigger.

About The Author

When the ride-share industry destroys his life causing him to lose everything he holds dear, one man carries out his murderous revenge one ride at a time! Let me first say that this is not War and Peace, it's not Wuthering Heights, nor any other famous Novel. It's my first, and as with most endeavors practice makes perfect. If you want perfection, this is not where you will find it. If you want a great story to get lost in for a couple of hours you won't be disappointed. Recently won Taleflicks Discovery Contest. Thanks for picking it up. The bloody and twisted game of cat and mouse between Joe and Detective Johnny Dangle would play out as the death toll of both drivers and passengers mounted. With the help of his senior crime lab technician Toenail Tommy and local reporter Jennifer Atwood, they would try to stop the rampage that Joe was dishing out on a nightly basis. They will find that South Florida was only the beginning. The Drive To Kill Is set against the backdrop of South Florida’s ride-share industry. What happens when a man is faced with false allegations and his life is torn apart through no fault of his own? For some people, they would choose to move on with their lives. For others it would be enough for them to take their own life. For Joe, REVENGE was the only clear cut option. Murder, mayhem and bloodshed would follow. The author, Joseph Bianco, was previously a private investigator in South Florida for 16 years and was also a driver in the ride-share industry for over 3 years with 5000 plus rides given. He knows first-hand not only what it is to be a driver and deal with the safety issues of the industry, but also a passenger who saw what went on from the back seat. This is a fictional piece of work but in reality, the fear and drive is real.
