Logline: 
British Intelligence recruits Gandhi and friends for a mission to Occupied Europe in late WW II, where they uncover a Nazi plot to turn the tide of the war using monsters.
Synopsis/Details: 

Welcome to a celebration of the 20th Century's greatest humanitarians!

(Seriously, this was the only way to get them all together into one room)

Mahatma Gandhi. Albert Einstein. Mother Teresa. Nelson Mandela. Benjamin Mays. And a young lad named Tenzin Gyatso (the Dalai Lama). You know them from the history books, but you've never seen them like this!

Oh, there’s the familiar compassion, wisdom, wit, and charm.

But when Britain’s Lord Mountbatten recruits Gandhi to raise a team for a secret mission to Nazi-occupied Europe in early 1944, they reveal hitherto unknown skills and traits - especially when they encounter Nazi mutations of the Undead kind!

Did Gandhi and his group of global good guys preempt a master plan for a zombie world takeover?

If so, why didn’t we ever hear about it?

Well, you’re about to!

GEAVZ would probably be rated PG-13 for excessive cheekiness! But jesting aside, it is totally reverent to the historical status of these beloved humanitarians and is a lot more mature than you'd expect, given the title. In fact, Gandhi et al spend most of their time fighting Nazis, not zombies.

And don't worry about the zomboids in this one. They are re-animated dead-ies, yes, but they aren't scary brain-eaters. They actually come in three flavors: Stupid, Stupider, and Stupidest.

Also note that I intend to make this at least in part a charity project, like "We are the World", "Do They Know It's Christmas?", "Tears are not Enough", and other charity endeavors.

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work.
