SQuid Brothers, INC. is looking for a completed, feature length dark drama or gritty thriller scripts which involve a hardened male character (24-28 preferred but not required) who interacts with a young, “quirky but bright” 11-13 year old female character,
i.e. Something in the vein of “The Professional,” “Sling Blade,” “Taxi Driver,” or “City of Lost Children.” The male character in the story should have enough moral sense to not hurt the child, and should learn something from the kid as the story unfolds, perhaps even becoming a mentor to, and then later becoming mentored by the child character. We especially favor stories where the communication between the main characters takes place more through body language than dialogue, such that the acting is more in the eyes and less in the conversation. And we’re especially interested in a hard, gritty, dark role for the female character. Budget for this project will not exceed $1.5 million. WGA and non-WGA writers may submit.
