Who would be the best choice to help produce and direct?
Is there anyone who could play Duke who happens to have written a screenplay
and could possibly even direct?
How about, Icon Productions?
This is some of my own original concept design and written work of a scene from my feature length Duke Nukem screenplay, depicting Duke and his girl Ashley being chased down the streets of Los Angeles by a giant Battlelord on their way to the coliseum:
Cut to: LA City streets (street chase)
The monster truck skids left around a city street corner
Then, not too far behind them, the BattleLord flies around the corner into view directly behind them
The radio is Rockin’ some killer tunes!
Duke and Ashley then take the next right
The truck drifts around the corner as the tires squeal and grip the pavement
The alien still follows
The alien fires its cannon
The pavement blows up just a few feet behind the monster truck
Chunks of asphalt fly into the air
Duke does his best to keep the trucks composure
The truck fishtails a bit
He then straightens it out
They race down the street!
Another blast from the alien flies just over the truck
The blast blows a hole in the street about 20 yards in front of Duke and Ashley
Duke reacts as quickly as possible to avoid the hole
Debris falls on the hood of the truck as Duke cuts the wheel and avoids the giant pot hole.
Ashley looks out and sees the crater as the tires roll half on and half off the pavement
Duke again straightens out the truck
He then reaches for the grenade launcher on the floor
Duke: Take the wheel
Ashley slides closer to Duke to take hold of the steering wheel
Duke opens the door and walks out onto the trucks running board/step
He slings the grenade launcher over his shoulder and steps along the running board
Ashley fully slides into the driver’s seat and takes full control
Duke climbs up the bed of the truck and gets inside
He readies the launcher
Duke then presses record on his sunglasses/camera
The Battlelords cannon charges
Duke takes aim
Duke launches a grenade
Before the alien can blast its cannon-
The grenade explodes into the shoulder of the alien
Sparks fly from its arm mounted cannon
Ashley quickly approaches an intersection
Ashley: Hang on!
Duke turns to look at where Ashley is headed
Ashley cuts the wheel late and skids into a left hand turn
The truck slides around the corner
Duke loses his balance slightly as the truck skids around the corner
He loses the grenade launcher into the city street in the process, yet manages to hang on tight enough to avoid falling over and becoming Battlelord fodder.
Ashley then straightens it out
Cut to: Interior apartment
An old lady, sitting comfortably on her lazy boy watching the early morning news, takes a sip of tea
TV anchorman: We’ve had some small quakes this morning here in southern Los Angeles…
Cut to: Street Chase
Ashleys strategic turn psyched out the alien a bit causing itself to make an even later turn than Ashley
Duke regains his balance and composure as they come out of the turn
The Battlelord fails to come out of the turn as cleanly as Ashley did and crashes right into the side of the corner building of the intersection
Cut to: Interior apartment
Being that the old ladies apartment is inside the same building the Battlelord just crashed into, she experiences the aftershock
Some tea spills out onto her nightgown
She shrugs it off as a being a minor aftershock from the quakes mentioned just earlier by the newscaster
She shrugs and continues to sip on her tea
