Wickid Pissa Films has unveiled its slate of projects they will be pitching at the 2016 AFM in Santa Monica this week. They will be meeting with buyers and investors to produce these original screenplays and bring them to distributors and festivals across the globe in 2017.
GODS & GANGSTERS
The story centers on the life of Julian Toula, a Greek mobster from Hollywood and the second leader of the infamous Juicy Jive Gang. He was the right-hand man to Jimmy “Juicy” McNeil, the originator of the gang, and took over the rackets when Juicy was killed during the Hollywood Gang Wars. It was Los Angeles in the late 1960’s — the darkest of days for rivaling gangs — a time when news of frequent killings on the streets became more popular reading than the sports page. A time when law enforcement passively stood by and allowed feuding gang members to meet their untimely demise amidst the brutal violence they gratuitously bestowed on each other.
Keith Haring’s talent was first recognized on subway platforms, where his trademark chalk-drawn figures could be seen for the price of a token. It was New York, mid-’70s, the tissue of the cultural fabric was shredded by tumultuous shifts in sentiment and sexuality. The fizzle of hippiedom had made way for the punk-rock generation with its fiery rebuking of the system. Haring completed thousands of public works and his subway drawings, murals, sculptures and paintings became synonymous worldwide, as had his artistic friendships with Madonna, Basquiat, William Burroughs and Andy Warhol.
This trilogy is big-budget, highly commercial, international in both scope and flavor, and has the blockbuster and tentpole potential to become a major hit with a stand-out lead character perfect for licensing. Set in the mid-1960’s, the “Absolutely Smashing” trilogy revolves around Darla Chandler, a British female pop singer who also works as a secret agent for S.M.A.S.H. (Strategic Measures Against Soviet Hegemony), a clandestine UK intelligence service. A young woman who leads two completely different lives — one highly public, the other highly secret — and who manages to deal with the complications of each and maintain this dual existence with cool British style, wit, and self-confidence.
A mysterious man and his odd butler show up in the remote town of Frumsville with aspirations of becoming its mayor but when he meets the current female elected official and her supporters things become anything but normal.
A twisted and cerebral belle uses her sexuality and profound psychobabble to lure two young college boys into wild experience trips. As she manipulates them into performing unforgettable and bizarre acts of suffering, her erratic means of observing their behavior gets out of control and everyone involved is forced to deal with the disastrous consequences.

5 Reasons Why You Need To Watch The LEGO Movie
The Lego movie was made with the motive of attracting children and giving them some important lessons that the Lego game teaches us. The children were the main target audience of the movie, but once the movie was released in the theatres, this notion was discarded. The director with the help of finely assembled Lego toys presented such a story to the audience that their eyes were glued to the screen for the entire duration of the movie.
The Lego movie was liked across the world and received many accolades and good wishes from influential people across the globe. Starting from the characters to animation to a story line, everything was above par and much above the expectations of people. You must have watched the movie multiple times by now. What? You have not watched the movie even once? Here are five reasons why you must watch the Lego movie.
1. It Is Fun To Watch
Be it the character or the humor, the movie is pure fun when it plays on the screen. Be it Jock or the Wild Style, there are many such stereotypical characters in the movie who initially give a glimpse of their stereotypical nature. However, with passage of time, they break their stereotypical barriers and reveal to world their true nature. This gives the viewers a lesson on how judgmental our thoughts can be in this world. This is one of the ways in which director has assimilated fun with some life lesson. Apart from the characters, the humor and dialogues in the movie stand out. The humor of the movie is not only attributed to the funny dialogues of the characters but also to the funny gestures that the characters exhibit. The animation team has done a great work by exhibiting the gestures so well as all the characters are made up of Legos. Not only this, the jokes and humors used in the movie are suitable for people of all ages. The jokes are basically such that even small children can see the humor hidden behind them and laugh on them. The twist in different parts of the tale, especially the twist in the end assures the film keeps you on your toes throughout the screenplay. Add to that the moral of the movie and it will be more than full house. So, when we put all these things together, we get a film which is fun to watch even after watching it multiple times. So, next time people talk about the movie, make sure you are not stranger to what they are talking about.
2. Gives A Lesson On Team Work
There are innumerable scenes in the movie which highlight the importance of teamwork in life, just like the Lego Ways itself portrays. The game has been teaching a generation of children how the teamwork can make their task easier. The film has also followed the logic and teaches children to cooperate and help each other when the situation demands. It is definitely a value every parent would want his child to possess.
3. Gives Kid A Lesson On Finding Their Specialty
An important part of the movie revolves around finding the specialty of any person. On top of that, the film shows how being special feels. This lesson from the film is quite influential and would make every child think that he or she must have a specialty. Apart from this, the film will encourage the child to find his special features, which will definitely be of great help once he or she grows up. Find specialty at tender age is certainly something which will help the child get a long way.
Superman and Batman are definitely two of the most popular superheroes across the globe. A film featuring these two superheroes is definitely expected to be popular among both children and adults. There are parts in the movie where these two superheroes feature, thus increasing our curiosity to learn.
5. Shows The Evolution Of Lego
The Lego dates back to very old times and the game have evolved a lot since the time of inception. The film shows glimpses of the evolution of the game. Apart from this, the film has various characters which the children would like to make using their Legos. The Lego Movie is one of the rare animation movies that ticks all the boxes and assures you that the entertainment you get is more than the money you pay for it. The entertainment value along with moral and different life lessons associated with the movie assure that you will love the movie. So, I hope the reasons given above are enough to justify why you should watch the movie.
