Title: "Of Unknown Origins"
By: Joshua Thomas Mischler
Logline: "A cryptozoologist hears a rumor that the creatures responsible for his father's disappearance years earlier have returned and that he's not the only one after them."
The main character is meant to be sort of like a mash up of Doctor Gregory House from the show 'House' and Tony Stark in that he's snarky and some might say egotistical. He is the foremost expert of mythical creatures and travels the world collecting evidence and capturing "monsters" for scientific study. When I wrote it I imagined what might happen if Bruce Wayne had lost his family to a pack of wild creatures after a plane crash instead of a gunman in an alley and the effect that would have had on him.
The actual genre is difficult to define. It is primarily an action/adventure story with elements of comedy and "horror" mixed in. I was going for something akin to Indiana Jones meets Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I have the script written up, but it's my first attempt at screenwriting so I know full well that it is far from marketable. But if anyone is interested in reading it and possibly collaborating, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
or look me up on facebook. Thank you.
