    In regards to your feature request, I have two scripts. One is being developed by myself and to be shot in Lithuania. The second, while written as the sequel, stands by itself and can be set in any city as the story between the characters is not dependent on their location.

    Best,

            I understand your need for the right script. However, could I humor you and state the details about my project in development?

              Dear Jersey Shore John,

              I have recently completed a new comedy script entitled Cheesehead Weddingand I would like to know if you'd be interested in reading a copy.

              A Chicago Bears aficionado living in a contemporary Wisconsin village is forced to become a Green Bay Packers fan in order to marry his girlfriend.

              When Mike Sarnowski renounces his bachelorhood to marry Megan Colby, he doesn’t realize he will also be forced to shed his loyalty to the Bears after he meets her eccentric father, Carl. Carl literally worships the Packers and violently opposes anyone who roots for Chicago. At first, Mike goes to elaborate lengths to trick his future father-in-law into thinking he’s a Packers fan. He redecorates his tavern, the Bear’s Claw, to make it look like a Packers bar. He expels a Bears fan from his establishment, not knowing until it is too late that this individual has been sent by Mike Ditka to determine if Sarnowski is worthy of the McMahon Award, which would make the Bear’s Claw the official tavern of the Bears.

              Mike’s ruse works until Carl’s dog, Bart, discovers the Bears jersey Mike has concealed under his Packers apparel. Carl refuses to allow the wedding to proceed until Mike decides to become a Packers fan and participate in a cheesehead wedding at his house. Mike reluctantly agrees to this proposition. He and Megan secretly contrive a plan to hold a Bears-themed wedding at the bar. Ditka agrees to forgive Mike’s treatment of his associate if he is invited to the ceremony and Mike is more than willing to honor his request.

              During the following week, Carl subjects Mike to brutal hazing, which includes a “baptism” with cold beer in the frigid Colby backyard and putting him in the line of fire during a Lambeau leap after he is forced to gorge on fried cheese curds. As Mike and his brother are getting the bar ready for the Bears wedding, they discover the rings have been stolen. When the thief invades the tavern, Mike‘s brother slips him a potent libation. After the thief passes out, Mike retrieves the rings and locks the crook in a restroom. As the cheesehead wedding commences, Megan pretends to have cold feet and runs out of the house.

              When Carl discovers that the hotel she supposedly fled to is non-existent, he storms over to the bar and discovers that the crook has broken out of the restroom and has taken the wedding party hostage. Carl is compelled to reveal the Bears logo tattooed on his backside and the story behind his hypocrisy. Ditka is so impressed with Mike’s restraint after Carl’s confession, he gives him the McMahon after Carl uses it to knock out the thief. Mike gives the award to Carl and makes him a business partner. After the wedding, the guests chase Mike and Megan out of the bar while bombarding them with beer nuts and Carl’s appreciation for Bears traditions is rekindled when Ditka pours Old Style on his head.

              Cheesehead Wedding is inspired by my experiences as a Bears fan living in Packer Nation, but I am willing to change the teams and locations mentioned in the script. It is my fifth feature-length sceenplay. I have a bachelor's degree in English literature from UW-Madison. The complete 103.5-page script is available upon request. I thank you for your consideration and look forward to your reply.

              Sincerely,

              Greg Przywara

                  Hey,

                  I've got a short script that would be a great fit for what you're looking for. It's logline follows:

                  LIFELINE

                  A Suicide Hotline worker must learn that no matter how many people he prevents from carrying out the unthinkable, he can't bring back his wife who's done the same.

                  It's basically a day-in-the-life story, except this is one of the most important days of this character's life.

                  Let me know if you're interested.

                  Thanks,

                  Comment

                    "Same thing but different!" You are obviously familiar with Blake Snyder. My original screenplay (logline below) is a "romantic dramedy with a twist''.

                    Logline: "My Father's Worst Nightmare" - With his boyfriend in tow, a college sophomore takes a weekend trip home for the express purpose of "comimg out" to his family and all hell breaks loose.

                    If you'd like to read the completed script please send me an email to: rujo52[at]aol.com

                    Best regards

                    JoeRusso

                      I cowrote a script that might be what you're looking for.

                      It has some of your common romance tropes, but taken in a different direction. The main character is Alex a poor teenage gypsy boy living in southern Florida. His love interest is Anna, a girl from a very high class gypsy girl who's already engaged to another man (many gypsies still practice arranged marriages and dowries). In addition the story has a cast of quirky support characters ranging from Alex's best friend to his high class call girl neighbor (don't worry it still meets your no sex requirement).

                      The story has romance, comedy, heart and a little bit of drama and excitement. The story is similar to My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Moonstruck.

                      My cowriter for the script is award winning filmmaker George Eli. You can check out his documentary at Searching for the Fourth Nail :: A Documentary Film

                      One benefit for you if you consider this script is we have already done script readings and they've been recorded, so you can really get a sense of what the story's like and how the scenes will play out.
