How many times have you read one of the 5 Condor Books and thought "This would make a GREAT movie!"? Well, now is the chance to make it happen AND get in on the ground floor as a part of the team!
John has started the process to convert Condor One (first in the series) into a movie, for either the big screen or the small screen on cable on a popular pay network. He has contracted with an experienced and popular writer/director to do the work of converting the book into a screen play. Unfortunately, as with anything in the real world, this takes money!
"It's time for another major film project that features gay people in the story line. Brokeback Mountain proves beyond a doubt that the right story will not only make money for the people in the movie business, but it can change peoples lives in the way they think about gay people. "Condor One," is the first in a five book series depicting the lives of the first openly gay President of the United States, and the Secret Service Agent that he falls in love with during the campaign. The first book take the public through the end of the campaign, and the high tension and action that takes place beginning on day one of the life of the Windsor presidency. Condor One is not only an action thriller, but a love story as well. How does a gay man who is the most powerful and public man in the world, conduct a relationship with another man who is not known to be gay and keep the details initially from the public.Is there even a chance that such a romance could work out? Condor one answers this question and many more besides. Enter a world where who the man is who is President is more important than who he sleeps with in spite of the near hysteria of some. Will President Windsor and the Secret Service be able to thwart the plots and conspiracies launched against this President? Will he survive? The first step in bringing this best selling story to the screen is to turn the book into a screenplay by a very experienced screenplay writer which is very different than authoring the story in the first place. Screenplay writers are very expensive because the work is so demanding. If we reach goal, we will proceed with the next step in bringing this project to Hollywood or HBO or Showtime or some other station that is bold and innovative."
As mentioned above, the first step has been reached, in that we have found a screenwriter to start the process, but he has only been half paid. We need to come up with the money to pay him the 2nd half, then have the money to go on to the next steps - hiring staff, producers, paying for locations, etc.
Your donations are needed! Every single dollar helps more than you can possibly know. Even the small donations of just $1 or $5, when added up altogether, make a huge difference for a project like this.
