Screenplays

Film5-Ban-GDH-2016

Off the back of a couple of scripts that I wrote after finishing university, I was invited to study scriptwriting with North-West Vision, a part of the UK Film Council. Since then I have written many more.

My stories are all suitably epic enough to fill a cinema screen… if you’re looking for demons, aliens, wars, monsters, space rockets, Amazonians, psychopaths and rock legends, you’ve come to the right place.

Here is a selection of what I have to offer, along with some extracts to get your juices flowing. If you would like to read the whole script(s), please contact me and we’ll arrange something through my agent.

Oh, and of course: There are plenty more where these came from.

It is 1962, the height of the Cold War. Indy reluctantly teams up with a female Mossad agent on the trail of a group of ageing Nazi war criminals hell-bent on starting World War III – a journey that will take them from the frozen streets of Leningrad to the desert of Timbuktu via East Germany and the Austrian Alps. If authenticity is your thing, let me stress that I dreamt up this concept while I was in jail in Congo.
