Trying to get a similar film made


As a long time Richard Stark fan, I have to say that John Boorman's post-modern masterpiece is the only film that really brought a level of commentary to the source material.

For a long time, i've been dreaming of doing my own version. In the process, I developed something of my own named Striker. Though the protagonist is Parker inspired, the film series (I want it to be a whole franchise, anyway) is quite different but I can't imagine a Parker fan not liking it.

I'm trying to fund a short film on Kickstarter to do bigger things with the material in the future:

Though we are at 40%, we only have 4 backers. So I'm hoping things get better.

I'm not sure that anyone could improve upon Point Blank, or come anywhere close, so it may not be a great idea to try...

I think if you read the script you'll see that it's different enough

Where is that script?

Is the project still in progress?

How is this project coming along?
