The last time I touched my script/screenplay happens to be two weeks ago when I last posted a blog. The reason is because, in between doing end of the semester essays and tests, and midterms or semester finals whatever you want to call it, I've been busy. The end of the semester is always such a hectic time, I really haven't even thought about my screenplay in the last two weeks. But not to worry, because I should have plenty of time to really progress the screenplay in the next month, I'll probably finish it as a matter of fact. Any who, as a recap I had to momentarily push my screenplay aside to focus on finishing the semester strong, but now I can refocus on progressing my screenplay.

So I finally started writing my script this past month. The first draft of my movie is entitled "The Good Brother" eventually I think I'm going to change the name but it'll do for now. It starts off with a montage of a brother and a sister growing up from young adolescence to young adulthood. Then we go to the present day where it is the girl's, named Sarah James, 27th birthday. A group of friends including her brother, Brian James who is 29, and Richard Dalton who is Sarah's future boyfriend, are at an Applebees celebrating. They are also celebrating Sarah finishing Law School and her first case coming up soon. She is going against a very dangerous criminal and is trying to send him to prison. Flash forward to the next week, Sarah and Brian are on the phone and it's 8:30p.m. Sarah is walking home from a law firm in Chicago, she tells Brian that she started dating Richard. Brian starts to voice his displeasure for Brian and also voices his concerns because of her court case. Sarah is a little fiery when it came to Richard, but appreciated the concern about the court case. Right after their conversation Sarah is mugged and injured too. Brian gets a call from the hospital, which he is a resident at, that his sister is there and has three broken ribs. Brian immediately rushes to the hospital and up to Sarah's room. When he first got there she was talking to the police and describing appearances. Then he goes into the room and gets teary eyed when seeing his sister on that hospital bed. Right before he can say a word, Richard comes up too. To make a long conversation short, Brian vows to do whatever he can to find out who was behind this. And Richard tells Brian that he's going to help. Brian is very reluctant to have Richard tag a long on his crusade. But eventually Richard convinces him. Before they leave the hospital, Brian talks to his doctor friend Jim and tells him to take good care of his sister. Then Brian and Richard leave the hospital, both with concern in their eyes. That's all I have so far, well that's a summary of what I have. This is an action comedy so there are a couple jokes thrown in there too, just couldn't integrate any of the funny stuff in my summary though.
