DARWIN'S GORGE - completed screenplay

Walking with Cavemen meets Fargo

LOGLINE - Two winter-fishing buddies snag a Sasquatch carcass and get into trouble trying to sell it.

PITCH - A SASQUATCH CLAN, more like primitive man than beasts, loses a young male when he slips on icy rocks and falls off a cliff into a river. Later, two blue-collar fishing buddies snag the frozen sasquatch carcass while winter fishing. It occurs to our two buddies that the carcass may be worth some money. They get into trouble when they try to sell it to corporate reps from the timber industry, who fear that sasquatch will become a super spotted owl for ecologists. The timber people hire hit men posing as exotic animal hunters to make our heroes disappear during a hunt to capture a live sasquatch.
