Page two

I started to write a blog entry today about what I’m working with as far as schematics, locations and stuff like that, but I ran out of juice. It’ll have to come later. In the meantime, I started working on page two. You’ll notice that I’ve removed the SUPERED: TWO WEEKS AGO and decided to go right into the next scene chronologically. I might set up Sam’s character later, but I’m starting to think it’s irrelevant and would slow down the story. All you really need to know is that he’s widowed and he’s struggling with it making poor choices. I don’t think we’ll need a back story to show that.

This scene is to set up the boss, Jimmy and his cronies, Perry and Martin. Perry and Martin are based on real people that I’ve worked with and are such cool people that I came up with this idea around them. Of course, all is fictional and they aren’t involved in the mob nor do they do anything that I’ll write them doing. I hope. My plan is to actually cast Perry in the role as he’s got an Andre the Giant aura about him. Sort of a gentle giant that you wouldn’t want to piss off. Plus, his accent is so thick you can’t understand a word he’s saying. It would be the Brad Pitt character in Snatch, but no acting.

Oh yeah, the blah, blah, blah below will be replaced by a funny story later (hopefully tomorrow). I just couldn’t think of anything funny tonight.

VOICE
If this could wait, I wouldn’t be fucking calling. I want my money.

SAM
Okay, okay. I’ll bring it by tomorrow.

FADE TO BLACK

INSERT TITLE CARD: THE CALL

INT. RESTAURANT – NIGHT

JIMMY, 50s, head of the Greek mafia and owner of the restaurant, is sitting at a large table with FRIEND 1, FRIEND 2 and WOMAN FRIEND engaged in conversation.

FRIEND 1
Blah, blah, blah, blah…

Everyone laughs.

JIMMY
So what did you do?

FRIEND 1
What could I do? I blah, blah, blah blah…

Everyone bursts into laughter again.

MARTIN, 40s, a well dressed handsome man, walk from the kitchen and approaches the table.

MARTIN
Hey boss. We’ve got a problem in the kitchen.

JIMMY
Excuse me. Don’t finish the story, I want to hear the rest when I get back.

FRIEND 1
Will do, Jimmy.
