Development Pitch

An explosive adventure with twists and turns that keep the audience guessing through the majority of the story. Set in beautiful locations with a threat in each that needs to be overcome. An evil that is so plausible that it leaves the audience relieved that someone is able to stop it, a hero who has to battle his own demons as well as the threat to the whole of mankind. Each character on the side of the good has their own battles which would create empathy that each audience member could relate to. The antagonists are pure evil, through their pursuit for world domination and will stop at nothing to fulfil their goal. There are factual elements within the plotline that leaves the audience believing that within the fictional storyline the scenario could actually happen, which adds to the tension and human interest within the plotline. An explosive action-packed fast-paced thriller. There is a love interest, elements of humour, emotional trauma, a race against time and edge of the seat tension of an epic struggle against good and evil that will have the audience asking for more. The main hero of the story is an action hero, a lone wolf, a complicated character with many more aspects to be revealed in other adventures. Men can relate to him and women empathise with him, but very few understand him, including himself. A story that begins as a mystery, develops as a suspense thriller and culminates in an edge of the seat battle between good and evil.
