Development Pitch

The story revolves around Nate Kincade, a former US Army Special Forces, who leads a team of guns for hire. Following a tragic incident, Kincade and his team look set to spend a long-term sentence inside a US Military prison. But then, a mysterious visitor shows up and offers them their freedom in exchange for completing a mission. The job is to track down and apprehend a group of scientists who recently escaped from a secret research facility located near the French-German border. Even though the mission itself sounds rather unusual, Kincade has no choice but to take the deal. But he soon finds out that the escaped scientists are far more dangerous than he could have possibly imagined. His predicament becomes even more challenging when one of the fugitives he has been tasked with tracking down, a young woman, saves his life, then asks for his help in finding the location of a lost memory card containing a powerful secret. With a lot more at stake than his team’s freedom, Kincade must now decide if he can trust this young woman, and if he’s willing to risk his life and that of his men by confronting an enemy more lethal than any he’s ever faced before. The plot moves at a fast pace, and is laced with action, suspense, riddles, and twists the audience will never see coming. The characters are engaging and unique, and some of them will challenge conventional wisdoms and invite the audience to re-evaluate certain accepted views. Think Jason Bourne meets the Da Vinci Code.
