An Army Veteran and a Navy Veteran, fighting over a flagpole in a retirement community, recruit the other veterans in the community in a game of Capture the Flag that would give the winner the right to raise the flag every morning.
Synopsis: Based on an Emmy Award winning short film called, "Reveille" written and directed by twins Adam and Donovan Montierth.

James is barely living. A Navy veteran residing in a retirement community, his only real pleasure each day is raising the flag in the community courtyard.

His routine is interrupted when Lou, a retired Army veteran moves in across the courtyard. He instantly challenges him for the right to raise the flag every morning.

A war begins for the flagpole.

After a series of pranks escalate to a full old man throwdown in the courtyard, they decide to settle the score with a no-holds barred game of capture the flag that would give the winner the right to raise the flag every morning.

They each recruit a team of 3 other feisty old men to help them wreak havoc on the other team.

This frankly funny, but heart-warming film is about rivalry, respect, sacrifice and friendship.

    Creative Notes:
    I kept the script true to the vision of the original writers. I kept most of their original, while adding some dialogue to help flush out characters and help the story move alone. Also, I added some additional lines for comedic effect. I also re-wrote a couple scenes.

    Script is in the vein of Grumpy Old Men and Bucket List. We wrote with Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freemen in mind. Added a WRITER'S PITCH to this version of the script.

    Other Changes:
    -Reformatted the entire script for an easier read. Rewrote the cafeteria scene.
    -Edited the fight scene in the courtyard to cut down on the name calling and smooth it out.

  • Script 3 - Donovan's 3rd Draft
    Creative Notes:
    The previous version made the semi's so we worked to strengthen what was working with the script and cut or smoothed the sections that needed some work. A previous review mentioned the script really took off at page 16 so we cut 3-4 pages to get to the meat of the story faster. Worked to balance out the tone of comedy/drama, cut several pages from the bingo scene and smoothed out dramatic scenes.
