Loitering with Intent

Synopsis: Two male actors/close friends want to jumpstart their careers. They end up making a big shot producer think that they have a hot script that everyone wants to get their hands on. The 2 men then drive to upstate New York and hole up in a family member's country home- with 10 dedicated days to write said script. Dominic and Raphael then get derailed by a beautiful gardener, Ava and Dominic's sister, Gigi. Both women appear at the house, which was supposed to be serene enough to focus on the task at hand. But to add to the problems, Gigi's boyfriend Wayne arrives, still suffering from PTSD, and his brother Devon as well, creating even more havoc. A looming deadline and complicated personal histories create scenes that are humorous and emotional.

- No.

- That was our idea.

Who was mentioning the Sweet Smell of Success?

- "Match me, Sidney"

- Match me.

I love that movie.

What's Jonathan up to?

I love his show.

Can you get me in touch? I promised my

boss I'd find something interesting

for him to produce for under 300 grand,

he's looking to shuffle some money

around on a tax credit thing.

I don't know what Jonathan' up

to, but we wrote that script.

- It's written, it's done.

- What script?

The Raymond Chandler thing.

We're burning down the

cultural superstar rasta.

Wow, look at you guys, that's great.

Did you write parts for yourselves?

- Of course.

- Yeah, we're the leads. We play brothers.

Okay, well what's it about?

Don't be shy, Dominic.

Tell Kaplan what it's about.

It's, uh, well, basically, um...

- Well, we play brothers.

- Yeah, I got that.

And, you know, we own a detective agency.

- And it's a noir.

- Absolutely.

Uh, you know, basically...

Well, it's an elevated genre film. At least

that's how aunt Carrie described it.

- Aunt Carrie read it?

- Yeah, she loved it.

How the hell did you get

aunt Carrie to read it?

- No offense.

- None taken.

- We know some people.

- Yeah, we're tapped in.

Well, what'd she say?

She said, what did she say, Raph?

- Said it was raw.

- Yeah, oh yeah.

She said it was really raw and original,

and that she'd love to get her hands on it.

It's called "The Blackmailers Don't Shoot."

- Or maybe "The Black Mask."

- Yeah, I like that one.

What the f*ck, is it low budget? You guys

think you can make it for under 300 k?

- Oh, yeah.

- Super low. Really low.

- Less than that.

- This sounds perfect.

My boss is looking for something new.

I get to produce this project.

Show me the script, let's do this.

No wait, hold on a minute, you know...
