THE FOLLOWING IDEA IS OWNED BY LAURA ANN TULL- DO NOT STEAL- COPY- OR MAKE A DERIVATIVE OF IT OR THE IMAGE, PERIOD.

I took a class in film production this past semester and for it I had to do a plan for a short.  Well I have a hard time thinking in little pieces I guess, because I kept coming up with full length film ideas.  Anyways, members of my family were in law enforcement, and I kept thinking of those classic interrogation scenes in Castle.  I think they have like one an episode where they drill someone.  The banter is awesome.  Well from that germ combined with my love of Greek Mythology, and well also being a fan of shows like “The Cape” and Patrick Swayze and doing some research on mobs, I created this little germ of an idea.

This is the start of a journey of a cop who everyone thinks no longer is a cop.

I wrote the following for a class at Santa Monica College in 2011.

THE FOLLOWING IDEA IS OWNED BY LAURA ANN TULL- DO NOT STEAL- COPY- OR MAKE A DERIVATIVE OF IT, PERIOD.

Trojan Cop

                Background: Thomas Martin is a cop, but not your typical police officer.  He lost his badge.  His wife was killed by a Mobster named Billy Milano, or he thinks.  Thomas could never prove it.  He went rouge, and turned in his badge.  Now he works for Antony Calzet, acting as protection for his illegal endeavors. 

                Story: Thomas Martin today is in trouble.  He has been called in for questioning. Officer Carlos Roberto wants to know if he has information on a supposed run happening in the next few days.  He got a tip from a skinny snitch named Sniggy that Thomas was running protection for a run from Mexico into Los Angeles, but the police are not sure what the run is for..  As the interrogation moves along, it does not look good for Thomas.  They found he had a gun in his possession open and on his person and he did not have the license to do that.  Officer Roberto wants to hold him.

                Detective Maria Larson joins the interrogation and pulls out Roberto.  Larson points out that the snitch had been arrested by Thomas so his information was biased and that he needed to release him. Roberto leaves in a huff.  After he leaves Larson shuts off the recorders and asks Thomas if he has anything to report.  Thomas says nothing.  Larson tells him, you tell me and I can get you out of here.  Thomas offers Larson a pay off.  Larson agrees.  Thomas tells her that her usual payment will be donated by tonight.  Maria takes a flash drive from Thomas’s belt. 

                Larson motions Roberto in to escort Thomas out.  As Thomas is leaving he slides a recorder he had stashed in his pocket into Roberto’s hand.  Thomas tells Roberto they got what they need.  Larson is on the take, but they still do not know what side.  Roberto tells Thomas to be careful, we will get them. 

                Larson is seen on a phone calling someone.  “The gift is in a few days, very explosive, through the port.”  A voice on the other end, “We will take care of it.  Your thanks will be appreciated within the hour.”

Note:  Thomas is on a quest to find out who killed his wife, but in that quest he plays the Trojan soldier and infiltrates the enemy.  We do not know whether it is sanctioned or not.  That is a question that hangs over the story.  His friend in the police force Roberto knows.  At the same time no one is exactly as they seem.   Mobsters, crooks, thieves, smugglers, and bad cops, and our hero Thomas in the center disguised as one of the enemy.  California has its mobsters and its gangs and no one is who you think they are and hidden agendas run amuck.  Will the Trojan cop get justice?
