SILVER SKULL CREEK by Ryan Gallant

Redemption… or Damnation?

When ranch-hand and former city slicker Ben Marsh’s fiance is kidnapped by a cutthroat gang of outlaws under the thrall of an ancient, blood-sucking evil, he must reluctantly join forces with the gang’s ousted leader, Curtis Rodriguez, to hunt down the band and rescue his beloved.

As Ben and Curtis doggedly pursue their quarry west across unforgiving Colorado countryside, the two men will be tested to their breaking point by each other AND their enemy.

When pitted against the ultimate evil that corrupts and brings out the worst in humanity, how far will these two unlikely allies be willing to go for love and revenge?

Is damnation inevitable for the young and naive Ben, who may have to sacrifice his soul for the sake of love before all is said and done?

Is redemption even possible for the jaded Curtis, a ruthless man who’s spent a lifetime selfishly killing and plundering?

Whether there will be redemption or damnation in the end… there WILL be blood.

A firsthand account of an ordinary man’s experience during a 25-year epic in American military history. Jesse C. Davisson, great-grandfather os Alison M. Wilkom, was no angle when he first joined the Army in 1893. His diary begins there, then follows his adventures through such historic military conflicts as The American Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection and WW1. Within these colorfully written pages, Jesse richly chronicles the fascinating and intimate details of these events, such as learning to ride horses with the 7th Cavalry, becoming friends with Apache Indian Scouts, skinning mules, and surviving ambushes, learning to avoid snakebites and hiding from jungle natives in the Philippines. He reveals the good and bad of our human character, complete with dark encounters and enlightening surprises.

Sotravel back in time when the United States was not a nation but a series of staked claims and territories. Meet a motley crew of cattle rustlers, thieves, murders, outlaws and deserters, as Jesse himself once became. Between his encounters in saloons with women of the night, Mexican bandits, Yaqui Indians and German machine guns, it is amazing that he was not injured or killed in action. Instead, Jesse eventually died as a result of chest problems he suffered while being gassed in France at Belleau Woods during WW1. Someone once said, “When a man dies, a library burns down.” I hope by reviving the unknown story of my great-grandfather, you will also become fascinated with Jesse and this epic period of American history.

Summary of script:

Mainstream success eludes struggling Hollywood actor Freddy Martinez… while a local serial killer eludes police.

SCREENPLAY TRAILER: THE YOUNGEST DOUGHBOY, by Steve Sterling

THE YOUNGEST DOUGHBOY
WGA: 2010010
Genre: War – World War I
By Steve Sterling

Logline:
Ernest Wrentmore is dressed to kill with twin .45 automatics on his hips, a trench knife strapped across his chest, and enough ammunition to take out an enemy platoon. At age 12, Ernest is the youngest American solider in World War I France. He’s about to become a hero. Based on a true story.

Synopsis
Act One
On the first day of school in September 1917, 12-year-old Ernest Wrentmore disappears from his Ohio hometown without a trace. It will be more than a year before his family learns the full story behind his disappearance. Tall, intelligent, and looking older than his years, Ernest lies to a recruiting officer and is inducted into the army under an assumed name. Six months later, Ernest lands in France for advanced training. He polishes his skills as a courier, operating alone delivering vital messages. He gains prowess as a marksman with twin .45 automatics. He deepens his friendships.

Act Two
The company deploys to a quiet section of trench in the French Alps – quiet meaning dozens are killed every week, not hundreds. Ernest fights hand-to-hand in no-man’s land, stumbles into an enemy trench while on a night mission, is strafed by an enemy plane, and buried in an underground dugout during a bombardment. The boy matures as a soldier.

Act Three
Ernest enters the final battle of the war – a battle of movement, not trenches, and vicious hand-to-hand fighting. On a do-or-die mission, he runs alone through enemy territory to deliver a vital message. While evading bullets from a machine gun nest, he jumps into a depression filled with mustard gas. In less than 48 hours, the company is ground down to a few survivors and surrounded. Ernest is dispatched on an “at-all-costs” mission to headquarters to request, food, water, ammunition, and reinforcements. On this run, he must make a decision that will determine the course of the remainder of his life.

Ernest is a likeable protagonist, one whom the audience will be rooting for while on the edge of their seats during horrific WWI battles. He is the youngest doughboy.

Blacklist coverage: Fascinating Story
“This is a fascinating story, both from an action perspective, but MOST
importantly, from a character study perspective. How incredible to feel
such a strong sense of duty coupled with determination at such a young
age. It has wonderful prospects: With elements of 1917 and HACKSAW RIDGE
and, a 12 year old protagonist, this is a producible story.”

SCREENPLAY TRAILER: Stand Tall! by Vincent J. Paterno

Pert casino waitress Colleen Cossitt, who dreamed of being a showgirl, instead now is literally “the biagest star in Vegas” after a laboratory mishap triples her to a towering 16-foot-1⅛. Guilt-ridden scientist and longtime customer Keswick Fletcher hides “little blonde goddess” Colleen from the world and unsuccessfully seeks to restore her to former proportions, as she feels freakish and unloved despite secret support from relatives and friends. As time goes on, she and Keswick fall in love and promise to protect each other.

Tracked down by the casino’s eccentric owner and given a million-dollar contract as a showroom headliner with Keswick as her manager, Colleen survives a shaky start (“I’m here to entertain people, not attack them,” she apologizes at a press conference). She soon becomes a Sin City icon, a gentle giant beloved by young and old whose shows are sellouts. But when three mutual rivals of theirs — a blackmailing mobster, her abusive ex and a haughty former showgirl — kidnap the scientist after the couple has a falling-out, a lonely Colleen vows to rescue “my little Keswick,” the man she’s come to love.

“Stand Tall!” takes the long-popular concept of the “giant woman” movie and gives it a good-natured romantic comedy spin. Colleen looks out for the little guy –“I once was one myself,” she notes — and is someone easy to root for. It’s a story that answers the question, “When it comes to love, why settle for normal?”
