  • The Weinstein Company is in "Transit"

    The hook: "The screenplay tells the story of a man who is forced to kill three men in three different cities in 12 hours or his son will die."


    Fairly predictable, high-concept stuff at least on the outside.

    How is it predictable? We don't know how he will kill them? Seems intriguing to me

      Sounds like a level from Grand Theft Auto

        I agree.

        It would be great if he somehow convinces the targets to "play dead" if they aren't really bad people and turns the whole scheme around on the villain making it one big cat & mouse game/puzzle that has you guessing until the end.
        Positive outcomes. Only.

          What I'm saying is that the basic ticking-clock-induced-premise itself (i.e. protag must do so and so before a certain time) could easily fall into extreme predictability (for example, he'll just scrape by and succeed in the nick of time or will somehow turn the tables on the antag and convince these three men to come help him save his son and put antag down).
