"This Reader was absolutely on the edge of my seat reading this script. It was intense, but in a good way. I still can't shake off this script two days after reading it."
WOLF TO THE SLAUGHTER
A SCREENPLAY by Adam Skelter
“It’s Reservoir Dogs meets Full Metal Jacket with a scathing, incisive take on the military industrial complex.”
Six MARSOC Raiders (Marines) are sent on an extraction mission to retrieve a mysterious prisoner known only as “The Asset” from an ISIS prison camp in Mosul, Iraq. But when their chopper is shot down, the team holes up inside a warehouse deep behind enemy lines of occupied territory. As they take cover, First Lieutenant Bundy discovers a plot to assassinate the Asset. The Corporate military contractor, Sierra Madre, has commissioned one of the marines on Bundy’s team to execute the contract. Stranded in a Jihadi shit storm, Bundy must figure out which of his Marines plans to assassinate the Asset.
Screenplay Format. One location. Real time.
“Wolf to the Slaughter is a brutal powder keg of tension that takes an unflinching look at U.S. Foreign Policy and a sympathetic exploration of the immense pressures Marines face."
“A claustrophobic, tension-filled script with huge stakes and an unrelenting pace.”
“An intelligently conceived and well-crafted war drama which unfolds like a thriller.”
