About this project

My name is Darren Block, and I am a screenwriter.  

I wrote the original screenplay for Playmaker starring Acadamy Award Winner, Colin Firth.  

I was able to get the project from the page to the screen in about 18 months, attaching a major star and a major distribution company (Orion Pictures).

After taking time off to raise a family, I've just completed my latest screenplay, Silent Rider... Click here to read the script. 

Movie star, Wayne Mackey Jr. decides to drop out, leave fame and fortune behind to get out of Hollywood and 'find himself'.  He finds himself on a bizarre bus trip to parts unknown and embarks on an esoteric journey of self discovery.  This is a deep dark comedy with a twist ending that will challenge and captivate viewers.  

I'm making this trailer to use as a promotional tool to fund the film.

Risks and challenges

Risk vs. Reward. That's the exciting part of film making. Putting your heart and soul into something you believe in and risking everything. That's a reward that can't be matched anywhere. I've done it once and it was amazing. Playmaker was a financial success and a moral victory. I can't wait to do it again with SILENT RIDER!
