Family Matters

Posted By: Bryan

This was a script for a mobster film Dan Feigenblatt and I wrote in under 24 hours. We pulled an all nighter writing it, and spent the next day trying to pull the cast together. I built a prop casket for the opening scene in which the “family” patriarch has passed away. It is at his funeral that we meet the principle cast; his brother Sal (who killed him to take over the family), his son Jimmy (who will ultimately fight and kill Sal to reclaim his father’s honor), etc. I modeled the opening sequence after the wedding in The Godfather. Unfortunately, we couldn’t pull everything together in time, and I moved to Pittsburgh, leaving the movie unfinished.
