Congrats to writer Blake Armstrong, who has signed with hot on-the-rise manager Jorge Gonzalez III at Station3.
Blake, who brought to life a modern western with his script FALLMAN was one of our top 25 semifinalists. His script, which is pitched as “No Country for Old Men” meets “Drive” centers on Mark Fallman, a man sent to prison as an accessory to an armed robbery with his murderous partner Bill Walsh, who upon release from prison wants only to return to his deceased father’s ranch and set his life straight; but, finding the ranch lost to foreclosure and his family confined to a trailer home, is forced to revisit his old ways.
The script, which will play extremely well to both talent, and directors, does a damned good job of taking the old western format and reinvigorating it with a fantastic action/thriller twist amongst the slow-burning drama.
I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more from Blake in the very near future!
Blake marks the sixth signing coming out of the 2013 Launch Pad Competition!
Congrats to both parties!
