Synopsis/Details: 

If you liked "Dr. Strangelove", you'll enjoy these updated takes on the powers-that-be as they play war games with the fate of the world!

They could be the honest-to-goodness most controversial scripts you will ever read. I do not pretend to solve the issue of the War on Terror in a couple of hundred pages - except to suggest that the war will never end if we let the radicals on both sides dictate everything - but these stories will definitely leave you thinking, gasping and chuckling!

If you'd like to view the script for this outrageous, culture-clashing ensemble piece, which has a diverse range of characters and could attract a celebrated international cast, I look forward to sending the PDFs to your attention.

Part 1: A Fine Day for a Beheading (92 pages)

When the CIA intercepts a terrorist video of a radio-controlled model airplane, the CIA sends their top experts, a beautiful strategist and her clandestine lover, an Arab-American analyst, to Riyadh in an effort to head off a plot to override the autopilots on civilian aircraft, unaware that the target is something with far graver international repercussions.

Part 2: Intifada Joe and the Woo-Woos (92 pages)

The CIA’s Assistant Deputy Director and her clandestine lover, a senior CIA analyst, try to stop a plot by terrorists to steal an Ebola
sample from an outbreak zone, unaware that a halfwit radical and his two sidekicks, who’ve been dumped by the terror group, have come into sole possession of the deadly specimen

The two features have also been formatted into a Pilot+Three Episodes for an ongoing series! Loglines and synopses available upon request.

The Writer: Steve Garry

I'm here to make films, not to gain endless options for my screenplays. I'm actively pursuing attachments for my smaller scale projects before I work my way up, so I'm looking for co-producers/investors. As a result of a decade of pitching and being read hundreds of times, I have connections to enhance the resources that you have available. Don't hesitate to approach me with this in mind! Flexibility, creativity and unconventional collaborations are necessary to make films. Go to bio
