Hot spec writer Jonathan Stokes is at it again with a new script, BORDER COUNTRY, which was in the hands of producers as soon as the spec hit the market! We can now confirm that the script is into ALL major buyers!
The gritty/thriller is pitched in the vein of “No Country for Old Men” meets “Training Day.” Story pits a war vet against a crew of corrupt cops intent on controlling the US / Mexico border. The script is out from UTA and Energy Entertainment.
Stokes appeared on the 2011 Black List with his previous spec script “Murders & Acquisitions,” which is in development at Warner Bros.
