Based On: 
"Last Thursday" by Kevin Machate

This script may seem familiar to some, as it is a shortened version of another project, "Last Thursday."

After cutting a full 11 pages (33% of the script) the lead character shifted and changed the tone of the script a bit. While still a comedy, it is more focused on the action and events leading up to, during, and after the bank heist. For this version, I removed all the build-up before the robbery (Sadly, including Mike Tyson) and made minor adjustments to make it feel more like a real short as opposed to a feature stuffed into a smaller container.

Although this script is listed for sale, it is unlikely that I would allow anyone to produce it without me being directly involved. I plan to shoot this in 2022.
