A down on his luck Henchman, desperate to win over his family and impress his super-villain boss, sets out to capture the greatest superhero ever… his new next door neighbor.
“Henchman” is a fun, funny, and family friendly script that gives us a fresh look at the superhero genre through the eyes of a villain’s henchman. Filled with goofy scenes and ironic situations, this comedy does not fail to deliver as it touches on what makes a good-guy good, and a bad-guy bad, all while remaining fast paced, original and exciting. Think “The Incredibles” meets “Despicable Me” when you think of this script. This screenplay has all the makings for a big franchise-launching summer 3-D release; it is very well written, the premise and story are very strong, the scenes are funny, both the characters and the premise are relatable to the masses, and the story mixes in a lot of real world problems into this fictional space. Overall, this was an incredibly enjoyable read that kept me entertained and laughing from beginning to end. I have a feeling we’ll be hearing a lot about this script and writer very soon!
