After a young man takes a paper route, he is forced to fight for the position against a ruthless gang of teenage cyclists.
This is a short film that never happened. CARRIER PIGEON (aka PAPER BOY NEEDED) was an idea that Jamie Zin presented to me several years ago. Long enough to the point that I don't remember when exactly it was. I was initially just brought on to assist in developing the story so that Jamie could write the screenplay. I believe Jamie wrote the first two scenes before calling it quits and giving me the reigns. I wrote the rest of it and I think Jamie made a couple more changes since then. The draft I'm posting was still a work-in-progress, so there are probably a few messy spots. Last year, I was told that Jamie wanted to re-develop it from the ground up. So there may be a different version of this some day. We'll see. Regardless, I want this version to exist in some form.
The whole short is meant to have a tongue-in-cheek tone and sort of be a parody of campy 80's/90's kid's movies. I had plans to write Top Gun style songs for it to amp up the cheese factor. Never got to do that part, unfortunately. Just play "Danger Zone" in your head while you read it.
