Dick Tracy comics
Logline: 
Hipster Portland Detective Trace Dickey is up to his fedora in trouble, when his arch nemesis kidnaps the entire Portland professional soccer team plunging the city into chaos.
Synopsis/Details: 

This script is a parody of Dick Tracy style comics, updated/relocated to reflect the hipster (and sometimes absurdist) culture of Portland, OR. While satisfying, the film is open ended, leaving room for a sequel or multiple followups (franchise), and extensive merchandising opportunities.

Portland Detective Trace Dickey spends his time battling the city's Rogues Gallery of colorful villains including his arch nemesis Flatnose Smith. Smith is tired of Dickey's interference and decides once and for all to put an end to the detective's heroic capers. Smith fashions a plan to capture the entire Portland professional soccer team and hold them for $8.75 billion ransom. Dickey, who is already exhausted from multiple fights with all the city's other villains, must devise a way to rescue the soccer team while not letting Flatnose get way with the ransom cash.

About me: In addition to completing 10 screenplays and 3 screenplay collaborations, I have written two novels (one for which I received a contract), and numerous short stories.

The Writer: Deen Gill

Screenwriter, author, all around good guy. Passionate about strong plotting and characterization. I see way too many character violations for the sake of moving the plot along. If the writing is strong and thoughtful, it will move the reader/viewer along, engaging them, pulling them in, and making them fans. My work has been read and vetted by B-movie film legend Bill Rebane, actor Joseph C. Phillips, producer Jeff Faehnle, and David Crowther of Trousers, Inc. https://www.stage32.com/profile/511719/about Go to bio
