Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Chadwick Boseman’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Chadwick Boseman and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Chadwick Boseman production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Chadwick Boseman’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Chadwick Boseman and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

This type of integration of plot/character in a story like About Schmidt would be a far more likely candidate for a first sale.
We watch the inner-city kid act as a mentor to teach Warren to cook, clean and loosen up with his money enough to enjoy whats left of his life. The kid could side with him on getting rid of the future son-in-law. Later, their plight would be defeated, but the defeat would help them both grow and change and realize they must accept things about who they are and who others are – rather than the way theyd like them to be.
Chadwick Boseman – The kid convinces Warren this stay-over was part of what he signed up for and Warren gets stuck taking the kid on a road trip. Imagine the possibilities for external conflict. Warrens entire character arc would become externalized.
The inner-city kid has been taking care of himself since he was 5. He knows the ropes and becomes a mentor to help Warren change. A change thats now external and visual = no more voice over.
Instead of going straight on to Elements of Act Two, Im going to stop here and do a couple of chapters on character, namely, the two characters who make up the heart, soul, and skeleton of your story: The HERO/INE and the VILLAIN (aka the PROTAGONIST and ANTAGONIST, or MAIN CHARACTER and OPPONENT.).
Chadwick Boseman – 8. Hero/ine, Protagonist, Main Character
There are separate chapters coming up for Act Two, Part 1; Act Two, Part 2; and Act Three that detail the different elements of each act, but I thought it would be useful for you all to have just a basic list that you can use when youre watching a film or doing the index cards for your own story, so Ive given it its own chapter: Chapter 17, Story Elements Checklist.
Im sure you realize this, but Im going to say it anyway. The reason that Im having you break down movies of your choice for the story elements is to make it easier for you to identify these same story elements in your own story the ones you already have and the ones you may be missing.
