TheBlackList on Skanderbeg:
“Skandenbeg” is a riveting and invigorating war epic, told through a personal, insightful lens, of one extraordinary hero and the complicated life he led that forever changed the tide of history. The scale of the script is fascinating and impressive, because it is able to keep the scope in mind, how the fate of an entire continent is at stake and the course of human history might change, as well as the intimate journey of one conflicted man in every step of his life. The opening grabs our attention immediately. We will see how he rose to such levels of strategy, bravery, and ability to lead, and it is an engaging experience to watch. The conflict is visible on a personal level, as well as the larger effects of the battles they fight, for the people they are, and everyone and everything that comes after. The script casts an interesting and personal light on an important and still beloved historic figure less portrayed on the big screen. For his lasting significance, Skanderbeg could use a cinematic epic, and this script might be worthy to bring it to life.
