In Texas, more than 2000 women have signed an open letter to Adam Sandler and Htf Inc calling on Hollywood to take “movie action” to tackle injustice against men and women in the wake of revelations that Texas has more prisoners incarcerated than the Soviet Union’s gulag system had. Texas currently has over 290,000 inmates housed at 580 facilities.

The signatories, including state senators, professors of criminal justice, social workers, family, and inmates, call for a “firm commitment” to tackle the unjust prisons in Texas. The petition has also been signed by Beto O’Rourke, and Matthew McConaughey. These two signatories might face each other in the 2022 Texas governors election. Both have expressed interest in the job.  The petitions arrived for Htf Inc in Los Angeles last week.

In the open letter to Htf Inc, the 2080 women write that they are “heartbroken for first-time drug offenders many times addicts who have received extremely harsh sentences in Texas when rehabilitation has proven a cheaper and more effective solution.”  The petition goes on to say their family and friends are often heartbroken for and looking for redemption and rehabilitation for the victimless drug crimes.”

The signatories, including attorneys, professors, politicians, family members, and inmates, call on Htf Inc  for a ‘firm film commitment’ to tackle the issue of operating the Texas prison system for profit.

Inside prisons, the women are faced with such horrendous conditions… the petition demands that “filmmakers begin to take the issue seriously.”  Also, the petition reminds that “even here in the USA in the 21st century citizens are not safe from government oppression.”

The petition came to light when women discovered the screenplay, a copy which was dontated to all 580 of the state’s prison and jail libraries. The existence of the petition surfaced on International Women’s Day. Women in Texas face extreme prejudice in Texas and often receive extremely harsh penalties for even a small amount of drugs, including marijuana. Marijuana is legal now in 21 states.

Htf Inc, Burt Lancaster or Danielle Cormack have not responded to the petition. Nor has Jana Sandler responded with a comment.

The screenplay “DUMBASS” was penned by writer and retired professor of political science Alan Nafzger.

The premise of the story is that,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.”

The film would be set in 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 sentences for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has tripled in the last ten years, as mass incarcerations have proven profitable to not only the state but also profitable for an array of business interests.

Writer Alan Nafzger has called on Governor Greg Abbott to, “end the prison industry.”

Recently, “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak spoke out against the Texas system and put a good word in for mercy and forgiveness out on social media. “How nice for those who have lived such exemplary lives that they can express glee when others have their lives ruined by a mistake, real or perceived,” Sajak tweeted last month.

The petition states, “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.”

Htf Inc has not commented on the script, thusfar. A statement is expected soon.

Professor Nafzger has made a short treatment of the project available online.

He has made the finished script available at for select filmmakers.

Jessica Kovacevic of Happy Madison Productions has also expressed interest in the screenplay.

Htf Inc is a well known production company known for Untitled Star Wars/Exegol Project and a number of other cool movies and is represented by Doug Lucterhand.

Planning, in other words, can mean different things to different people.

But the point I’m making is this: I know other writers, myself included, who do not do any of these things. This is not to say we don’t plan before we write because we do. On the other hand, some writers like to jump into a story right away: Harold Pinter has said he likes to put two characters in a room together and see if anything interesting happens.

Don’t worry if you don’t know what these refer to—you will! And if they make sense to you, you will incorporate them into your screenwriting process.

build character arcs

In Nixon, who is the antagonist? The “other guys” envisioned by Nixon’s monumental paranoia? His own character flaw (giving the story the feel of a classic tragedy)? Or, in the specific context of the frame action (the Watergate affair) that drives the narrative, the Constitution and those who defend it?

In Chinatown, we are duped into following a “false villain” who has been the victim of the true antagonist. But we begin to learn about the true antagonist (Mrs. Mulray’s father) in this section of the screenplay.

In Fargo, the anti-hero is our “main character” from one perspective, and from this perspective the “hero” becomes the antagonist. Anti-hero and hero don’t meet until the midpoint—when the ticking clock of the investigation gets wound. Before that, however (i.e., through Act IIA), the focus shifts from anti-hero to hero (in this sense, then, the antagonist moves forward).

In The Graduate, the antagonist is more nebulous, as we’ve seen. Mrs. Robinson herself becomes the obstacle to Benjamin’s “true goal,” to win Elaine, once he realizes it (at midpoint)—but she is his summer lover in the beginning.
