so I have written a 25-page script that's part noir part hip hop musical with some fighting in there. it's like Treme meets SinCity meets 8 Mile??
All the music will be "motivated" and will be performed live.
And the tracks, performed by Zion I and guests, will be on sale via itunes.
That's the hope anyways.
Anyone wanna take a read?
I've consulted peeps and I'm trying to make this as plausible as possible, given the premise and all.

My logline is something like-
Emcee Kenji is an old, damaged, has-been rapper who gets invited in the club owned by his sadistic arch nemesis and one-time sidekick Apple Jones. Revenge shall be swift, as long as he can keep armed guards, nostalgic fans, and his own neurosis and haunted past- at bay.

Definitely. Can't promise I'll get around to reading it real soon though as I'm buried in script for AFF right now. Will have a clear desk within 2 months though.
