Brothers in Arms: The Movie
We want to make our Brothers in Arms
film... We have tried several times to pitch our film to a big Hollywood
studio. Working with studios is important to get film funded but it comes with
a lot of give on our part, which could take away the integrity of the story as
well. We wanted to avoid all that and make the best possible movie we can while
staying true to the story we have written.
Luckily, we found the nice people at Kickstarter (applause) which have brought us one step closer to being able to create and deliver this amazing project to our current and future fans by giving us the ability to have our project funded.
Because we’re making a smaller movie without a big studio playing big brother and undermining every step we take, we can finish it for fraction of the cost, in a lot less time which will also give us the ability to get the final product out to our fans a lot quicker.
The screenplay is based on a story written by Gerard Lima.
The screenplay I have written is about two friends that grow up together and enlist in the Army. It begins with the two main characters of the story are Mike White and James Clark; these two friends go from Basic Training, to Ranger School all the way to a war zone. During their time in the service, Mike and James are always watching out for one another. While away in basic training Mike’s girlfriend Ellen who is also James’s sister takes care of Mike’s mother who is brain dead due to a car accident.
Once the two friends return home from Ranger School Mike’s mother passes away only a few days after their return; during this time also Mike and Ellen get engaged. The same day Mike gets engaged James and he are shipping out to a war zone. While in the war zone, Mike and James are placed in the same platoon where they serve their time together.
Mike and James are assigned to transport a Colonel and a Senator to an Army base located at the north end of where the war is taking place for three days. Once they arrive at the at the Army base, James meets a girl by the name of Katie and the two spend some time together. On the third day when the convoy leaves the base where Mike and James have been staying; but on the way home their convoy gets ambushed.
Six months after their unit is ambushed Mike and James are sent out on a search and rescue mission for prisoners of war. During the mission James is shot and killed in action; Mike.
Mike returns home with a box containing some of James’s personal items along with a letter Katie had sent to James informing him that she was going to be having his child.
This is only a glimpse of what the script and story since we did not want to give too much of the story away.
