The final reading of the 2018 run of ScriptTankwill be next Tuesday – 4 December. We will be hearing the first draft of a screenplay from Richard Cosgrove: The Box.
After a simple heist goes wrong, three criminals – a hacker, a hired gun, and a getaway driver – gather in a locked apartment with their score. If they can survive the next two hours, they are promised the biggest payouts of their lives. Each is ready to betray and be betrayed, but none are ready for what is inside the “box”.
The Box is a micro-budget science-fiction thriller about our culture’s reliance on technology and capitalism.
As this is the last reading for 2018, ScriptTank’s organisers wish you all a happy holiday season.
We will be returning in January 2019.
On Monday, 3 April, ScriptTank will be hearing Sunrise – a horror-thriller by Richard Cosgrove.
This will be the last ScriptTank reading before Easter. Readings will begin again in May.
Maggie learns that the pack of vampires who have enslaved her as a child, plan to kill her and force 11-year-old Chris to serve them. In a desperate attempt to save herself, she escapes the vampire’s home, taking Chris as a bargaining chip. As Maggie drags the recently orphaned boy across the UK in order to escape to Europe, hunted in every step by Maggie’s masters, she grows to care for the boy. But she doesn’t realise that Chris’ fate is already sealed, as is her own.
Sunrise is a disturbing and violent low-budget horror feature, set in the UK. This is new draft of a script that was heard at ScriptTank last year.
