With only 24 hours before her life support machine is switched off, a coma patient is given a second chance when she is recruited by an organisation that operates within the human subconscious to help stop a terror group that controls people via their dreams.
The logline is too long as it uses descriptions too convoluted to be effective whilst keeping the inciting incident and goal vague and plot unclear.
After a coma patient is recruited in her own mind by an agency that operates in the human psyche she must fight a russian coma patient to prevent a soviet mind control program.
Interesting theme as it deals with a scary question does the mind stay active in a coma?
But all I can think of is Inception…
How will this differ in practical terms?
Hope this helps.
It helps a great deal.
Inception, was a heist movie, albeit a unique and reverse take on the idea – where you are implanting rather than stealing – whereas I want to differ from that aspect as mine will be more like a chase / suspense thriller (Very Cat and Mouse) – plus I do want to play with that element of is he or isn’t he alive, is this all just a fantasy in their head, or is this a representation of their fight for survival?
I guess, I would have the same problem as Ghost in the Shell, which I believe is being made into a live action movie… they will need to differ from the Matrix, which will be difficult as a lot of the Matrix was inspired by the movie, but not impossible and with a different them and take on an established genre I am hoping both will have a place and can be enjoyed individually.
Well, I would have explained this – granted I am still early doors research wise – however, it would have been something along the lines of either
a) The limitations of the technology back then meant only one person at a time could be hacked, and their were numerous methods that could block the signal etc and various scientists within the programme were taken out or died.
b) The US lead a strike on the base that contained the device, and destroyed it without knowing – or perhaps some did – and a back up machine has been either built and / or discovered.
c) The device itself started to act on it’s own, and thus was shut down and couldn’t be controlled.
Long story short, once I have continued the research I will have a feasible reason for your question.
