True, interesting!

In fact, I think he intentionally wrote a logline as open as possible because it was meant to be a blueprint –  for a writer contest where writers must submit 15 pages based on this ‘logline’.

I think he would have written a completely different logline if it was meant to describe his own script, and if it was not a ‘name’ in the industry.

Hello, this kind of story could be interesting, but in my opinion you just have the blueprint of the movie, the “intention”. Now you should work on the plot and include in the logline some details about the ‘wrongs’ and the ‘rights’ of the movie.

I would start with “When a corrupt detective learns that he has one month left to live, ”   then what happens ?

In the logline, you should not “explain” the story, just “tell” the story (as short as you can).

Interesting.

This original logline is by Sheldon Turner (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheldon_Turnerhttp://www.imdb.com/name/nm1417242/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 )
