I hate that feeling. Happened twice last time I wrote a screenplay (the one I submitted to Sundance, I find out Aug. 3!) and they both happened at the end. It was terrible. Then I quickly forgot it when I read some of the shit.
Korea vs. Japan in cultural gang conflict, feat. Hyosung riding, sacred Sainchamsageom wielding, Endangered Farang knights Vs. Kawasaki riding, Katana wielding, last of the Samurai. Old boy meets Kill Bill 2.
I'm 80 pages (about a third) into a straight up gangster film, but I'm also planning a film about a group of childhood friends who are all sent to Vietnam, go their separate ways, but meet again on a certain-death mission.P.S. Sorry if I'm gravedigging. I'm new, and I didn't see anything prohibiting it.
80 pages? If you are formatting the screenplay correctly, it should translate to 1 page for 1 minute of screen time. So you've already got 80 minutes. For a first time screenplay, you are usually looking for 90 to 100 pages. That's going to be a long as hell movie if you're only a third of the way through it.
