Synopsis/Details: 

It’s I AM LEGEND meets LETHAL WEAPON.

Our story begins in a quarantined town. A virus has infected the inhabitants and turned them into voracious wild animals. Brian, a young scientist working on a cure, is the only survivor after containment is lost and the virus goes global. A year later, Brian is captured by a hoard of wild humans led by Patient Twenty One, an infected man Brian conducted experiments on. Patient Twenty One has the ability to control the wild humans, a side effect of Brian’s experiments. Patient Twenty One wants Brian to help him and his dying hoard attack The Ark, a fortified installation containing those responsible for the virus. Brian must decide if seeking revenge justifies exterminating the last of humanity.

The Writer: Lance West

My screenplays are straight-up escapism. They transport the viewer to exciting new worlds, where they get to know the characters on the fly while traversing popcorn worthy adventures. Basically, I'm trying to recreate that feeling I had as a kid watching Star Wars for the first time. That total buy-in from the opening frame till the end credits. Go to bio
