Achilles – The Hit – is based on a short story I wrote a couple of years ago about a local kingpin who owns the most popular Gentleman’s Club in town. Achilles’ best friend is gunned down by mistake and it’s not long before he releases the bullet was meant for him. It’s a race against time for Achilles to find out who is behind … the hit.
I published The Hit two years ago and it performed very well on Amazon, receiving great reviews. When I wrote it, I had in mind to make Achilles a complete series. So, after The Hit, a year later, I wrote and published The Family – the second installment in the Achilles series.
It was always in the back of mind that Achilles would make a great movie. It had an Adonis as the protagonist and is money, power and respect. The idea stayed with me and finally, earlier this year, I converted the short story – The Hit – into a screenplay.
With the help of my Director friend, I hammered and polished the script. Moonraven Films LLC was created and pre-production commenced.
We start shooting July 30th.
Of course, like most indie films, we need to raise money so there is an Indie Go-Go crowd funding campaign in place. I’ve carved out some fantastic perks for you and even if you can’t contribute – a tweet or a share goes a very long way.
If each of my friends/family/supporters contributes just $10-$20, we’ll reach our goal.
Geoffrey Ryan Rein stars as Achilles. Co-starring are Therron Dumas as Tyree, International Nova as Omar, Manny Mertis as Moe and Robert Dobson as Brandon.
I’ve tagged them as The Hit Men …. they like it…a lot lol
