The true crime documentary about Mario Casciaro, exonerated in 2016 after serving 4 years of a 26-year murder conviction for the 2002 disappearance of a Johnsburg, IL grocery store coworker. Casciaro was one of the only people convicted in judicial history of the crime of murder by intimidation, and where a body has never been found. Mario became a lawyer after being freed and now works to overturn wrongful convictions. This is a story of small town haves vs have-nots, anti-immigrant bias, overzealous prosecutorial powers, police rush to judgement, high school interpersonal dynamics, a dogged defense attorney (Kathleen Zellner from “Making A Murderer 2”), 2 families’ loss of their sons and the American justice system. Also prime content for a scripted film (strong roles for Mario, lead prosecutor and Zellner characters) book, podcast series:
The Expendables is an American series of ensemble action films written by and starring Sylvester Stallone and originally
created by David Callaham. The film series itself was created to pay homage to blockbuster action films and the genre's
stars. The series consists of three films: The Expendables (2010), The Expendables 2 (2012) and The Expendables 3

"Frighternity, the Expendables of Horror!".
Some familiar faces below to choose from. If you've ever been to a horror convention or comic-con, you can imagine the
impact the first horror/thriller/comic book film to employ the Expendables marketing scheme could have...
Dynasty On Ice (working title)
From 1983-1988, the Edmonton Oilers won 5 Stanley Cups, the most dominant run of any team in pro sports history. Led by the greatest hockey player ever, Wayne Gretzky and superstars like Mark Messier, Jari Kurri and Grant Fuhr (the first African –American NHL superstar), the team was seemingly unstoppable. Until they stopped, when Gretzky was traded to the LA Kings, simultaneously crushing a generation of Canadians and opening up hockey to millions of Americans. The team was chronicled by a film crew putting together what was then a revolutionary concept: a behind-the-scenes look at the players off the ice, in their most private settings. The footage became The Boys On The Bus, a groundbreaking precursor to the sports documentaries that would change filmmaking 20 years later. The film also inspired the Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance:
