The Vampire Dancer Saga, 2nd SCRIPT Sneak Peak is here: Chapter 3, Le Hot Jazz Dancer, the 1920s! Would Keenan Ivory Wayans, Mel Brooks or Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer make a better director?

The Vampire Dancer Saga FrontHello fellow Vampire Dancer Saga devotees. I’m back, trying to energize a fan base and get a Movie or TV show made from my book. Please skip to the end to read the script for Chapter 3, Le Hot Jazz Dancer, the 1920s:

 

You may have read the The Vampire Dancer Saga book or blog and noticed that some of the character names are similar to a TV show or Famous person?

That is correct, the TVDS is based on my real family members and it spoofs/tributes some of my favorite TV shows and dancers.

For example: Which TV show might have characters with similar names?
The Braden Hunchbacks
Mitchell Braden Caroline Braden
Greggy Marsha
Pete Jane
Bob Cynthia
Maid Alyce

Sabra JohnsonAlso, some of our favorite dancers visit TVDS via their Alternate Universe to share dances from their era.

Which famous dancer is known for the Charleston back in the 1920s and also danced with her top off? The name is similar to PHINA. I would love to cast SABRA JOHNSON as either Phina Brown or Triple T Debs in this movie.

My grandfather was the patriarch of our family. He kept all the kids in line, or you might get a whooping. And trust me, you better be on your best behavior to avoid that whooping. I love MALIK YOBA from Alphas. He would be great to play my grandfather because he can have that stern, better behave look.

Malik YobaBig Daddy Baker aka my Granddad is having an affair with Caroline Braden in TVDS. Caroline has a background in dance, so to cast her, I would select CHRISTINA APPLEGATE! I love Christina in Married with Children and she has also performed in Sweet Charity on Broadway. It’s also nice when Christina is a guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance.

For the Granny Smith character, I would LOVE to have the very talented LORETTA DEVINE! I love her on every TV show and movie, especially on Supernatural, The PJs, Eli Stone, State of Georgia and many more!

You might be thinking that it is awfully ambitious to think my book, The Vampire Dancer Saga, can be turned into a Movie or TV show. Even though this seems like a big dream, the reality is that EVERY TV show or Movie Christina Applegate1started out one day as an idea. That idea grew as it got linked to a movie studio, director, producer, writer and actors. Right now, this is just a small dream, but it never hurts to dream and who knows, this dream just might become a reality one day.

I mentioned several potential directors for this book-to-movie idea in Chapter 9. Can you guess the real names of these directors?
Okra Belfry, Terry Pliers, Triple T Debs, Margo Derek, Dulla Plaudool, Pinky Jade, Mob RaShell, Laz Burman

To that list I would add 3 more directors who have already done movies that are similar to the spoofs in The Vampire Dancer Saga:
Keenan Ivory Wayans
Mel Brooks
Jason Friedberg/Aaron Seltzer

Loretta DevineEveryone knows KEENAN IVORY WAYANS from the fantastically funny, In Living Color, Dance Flick and Scary Movie. MEL BROOKS has made many movie spoofs such as History of the World and SpaceBalls. JASON FRIEDBERG & AARON SELTZER did Vampires Suck, Date Movie, Scary Movie, Epic Movie and Disaster Movie.

Although The Vampire Dancer Saga is basically about Dance History, World History, Movie & TV culture for the past 100 years, it could stand a good comedy laugh, right? But one thing that I would not change if this ever becomes a movie, is to not make fun or any of the dances in the movie. As a dancer, dance is sacred, and I would hate to see anyone make fun of dance.

SCRIPT FOR THE VAMPIRE DANCER SAGA CHAPTER 3: LE HOT JAZZ:  Copyright 2012 Shalimar Ali

GRANNY comes trudging out of the sharecropper’s shack calling for LEANA. Just outside of the door several children—some black children dressed in ragged and patched clothing and some white children dressed in short pants and pinafores—play in the dirt, giggling at some game until they see GRANNY. All of the children stop, frozen as she passes by.

GRANNYLoretta Devine1

Junior, where Leana?

JUNIOR

I don’t know. Last I see her, she over that way.

GRANNY is trudging in the general direction of the clump of trees JUNIOR has indicated. When she gets there, she finds LEANA kissing GREGGY.

GRANNY

Hey! Whatchoo doin’?! You!

Indicating GREGGY

You get outta here now. What your daddy gonna do he catch you with a little black girl? Go on!Malik Yoba2

GREGGY runs off in the direction of the big house. GRANNY turns LEANA in the direction of the shack but before they start moving she takes LEANA by the arm and begins speaking.

Girl, don’t you know no good ever come of Black folks mixin’ with Whites. Some place they string a black person up for kissing on a white.

Suddenly Mr. Braden is standing behind them holding a squirming GREGGY by his shirt collar. There is blood on GREGGY’s lip.

BRADEN

Christina Applegate2So that’s what he’s been up to. I knew it must be something the way he was running. And you, you little trollop—

BRADEN backhands LEANA

You should stay with your own kind!

There is fire in GRANNY’s eyes as she looks at BRADEN but she holds her tongue and watches BRADEN as he drags GREGGY away.

· * * *Sabra Johnson1

INT. Shack. Day. GRANNY is going over her shelf full of jars and vials. She is looking for just the right thing. She talks to her granddaughter PHINA as she packs a small bag.

GRANNY

How long you stayin’?

PHINA

History of the WorldMaybe a couple of weeks. The Cotton Club try outs are in a little while and I aim to get on there.

GRANNY

You come to see the girls then.

PHINA

And Caroline. I figure she might have some pointers after dancing in the Follies.

GRANNY

That was a long time ago. Anyhow, she not doin’ much dancin’ right now. She too big.

PHINA Scary Movie

That’s what you’re packing up there. I was always curious about all of your potions and things. What’s this one?

GRANNY

That Camomile. That just for making a soothing tea. I make her drink that when the pains come on.

PHINA

When’s the baby due?

GRANNY

I figure she prob’ly have it by the end o’ the week.

Vampires SuckGRANNY finally finds the vial she’s been looking for and lifts it from the shelf triumphantly. It has a thick dark liquid in it.

GRANNY

I knew I had some more a you somewhere.

PHINA

What’s that?

GRANNY

Blood of a vampire bat.

PHINA

Josephine CharlestonWhat do you use that for?

GRANNY

Braden family curse.

PHINA

Curse?!

GRANNY

Mr. Braden see fit to lay hands on Leana. I ain’t take kindly to that.

PHINA

Jason AasonWhat does it do?

GRANNY

The baby gonna be a vampire.

PHINA

Vampire? That baby didn’t do anything to anybody.

GRANNY

Too late to quit now. I been dosing Mrs. Braden for weeks now. What’s done is done. And you can keep that to yourself.

PHINAMel Brooks

I’m gonna go out and see the girls. Show them some of the latest dances.

GRANNY

They appreciate that. They loves dancin’ and they worship the ground you walk on.

Ext. Shack. Day. Outside there is a commotion. GREGGY has come running from the big house to fetch GRANNY.

GREGGY

Granny, it’s time! Ma’s ready to have the baby!

Dance FlickGRANNY steps out the door to see GREGGY. She has her bag in her hand.

GRANNY

Alright boy. I be there. Keep your shirt on. Phina. Come on, girl, you with me.

GRANNY , PHINA and GREGGY begin walking together in the direction of the big house.

EXT. Day. Big House. Big Daddy Baker is outside weeding flower beds as GRANNY and GREGGY approach.

GRANNY

What you doin’ up here right now?

BAKER

I’m just weedin’ these flowers like Mrs. Braden wanted.

Above them, from an open window, they hear Mrs. Braden cry out in the throws of labor. BAKER looks up nervously at the sound. GRANNY eyes him but says nothing in front of GREGGY. She takes the boy into the house.

INT. Big House. Day.GRANNY and GREGGY are in the foyer of a slightly decaying antebellum home. He leads her to a closed bedroom door.

GRANNY

Where the other children?

GREGGY

In the nursery.

GRANNY

Then you go stay with them.

Inside the bedroom, BRADEN paces nervously as a sweating and mewling CAROLINE/MRS BRADEN lies in bed.

GRANNY

You can go on now Mr. Braden. I got this under control, here.

BRADEN exits.

GRANNY

How often the pains coming.

CAROLINE

About every four minutes.

GRANNY

Handing PHINA a jar from the bag.

Alright. Take this, make some tea and bring me some hot water. Looks like we gonna have a baby.

· * * *

· In the hallway outside the bedroom door, BRADEN is again pacing. There is a loud yell from inside and then a tiny wail.

· * * *

· Inside the bedroom GRANNY and PHINA are huddled around the baby, whispering.

PHINA

That ain’t Mr. Braden’s baby.

GRANNY

I was afraid a this.

PHINA

Afraid of what?

GRANNY

Big Daddy be up here all the time doing “special chores” for Mrs. Braden.

PHINA

You don’t think . . .

GRANNY

Yup.

CAROLINE

From the bed.

CAROLINE cont.

What’s wrong.

GRANNY

Taking the baby over to her.

You know what’s wrong.

CAROLINE

Oh, no . . .

The door swings open. BRADEN is standing in the doorway.

BRADEN

Can I see the baby? Is it a boy?

GRANNY

Covering the baby with its blanket.

Patience, now, Mr. Braden. You got a beautiful little girl.

BRADEN walks over to GRANNY and rearranges the bundle of blankets in her arms.

BRADEN

Why is this child so dark?!

CAROLINE

I think I must have spent too much time in the sun. I passed on a suntan to the baby.

GRANNY

It’s been known to happen, Mr. Braden.

BRADEN

Only to fools!

BRADEN storms out. In the downstairs foyer he comes upon BAKER who has his hat in his hands.

BRADEN

What are you doing here?!

BAKER

I come to see how Mrs. Braden and the baby doin’. Pay my respects.

BRADEN goes for the gun mounted on the wall above the fireplace. BAKER grabs the poker first and strikes him with it several times. BRADEN lies bleeding on the hearth. BAKER throws the poker down and runs upstairs.

· * * *

BAKER appears in the bedroom doorway.

CAROLINE

What’s happened?

BAKER

Mr. Braden hurt real bad. He might be dead.

To GRANNY

We gotta get outta here.

GRANNY

You don’t wanna see your little girl first?

BAKER looks at her stunned for a moment and then at the baby. Slowly, he holds out his arms GRANNY hands him the baby. He looks at the tiny bundle in his arms.

BAKER

She looks perfect to me.

Taking the baby to CAROLINE.

You done good. She a fine baby. As fine as I ever seen.

CAROLINE

Where will you go?

BAKER

We got family in Missouri.

CAROLINE

I will find you.

BAKER

Meet me in St. Louis.
