David Siracusa

Screenwriter and author



I began writing over 10 years ago.  I love to tell stories.  


Currently, I have four full length movie scripts completed and ready for production, as my fourth script has just exited from post-production and is ready to be filmed.  My fifth script is now ready for post-production and should be fully completed within the next few months. My sixth script should be completed by the end of 2021.  And then I have at least two others that I hope to move from R&D to production by the fourth quarter or the beginning of 2022.


I have written two books.  One is a historical fiction novel and the other is a business book written during the time when I started and developed my first company.


My scripts are always available for request.

Can't Fight the Fear

Life isn't easy for a man with a debilitating phobia. But so far, he has gotten by okay.  David depends on the support of his family, friends and co-workers to help him, but that doesn't mean that they aren't willing to mess with him every now and then.  Which leads to some very entertaining  events in his life. Not for him of course, but for everyone else.

When it comes right down to it though, his fear of flying hasn't hurt him yet. However, when his company is at risk of failing and his daughter is getting married in Italy, will the skills he has been developing to deal with his terror stand up to the real life challenge?

Chauvin

Tom and Byron have been best friends since childhood. Through forty years of friendship, they have experienced just about everything together. But that was before Derek Chauvin knelt on the neck of George Floyd and took his life.

Tom is white, Byron is black. But that shouldn't matter when they begin discussing the case, should it? After all, facts are facts.

Or are they?

What starts out as an academic conversation quickly gets real when their businesses are threatened. Will both men stick to their guns when their livelihoods are at stake?

Dec '21 - My Father's Legacy

Donnie has a father who can't stay out of prison, a girlfriend that he doesn't want anyone to know about, a family of bullies in his school that have an eye for causing him problems and a small city where everyone knows each other. 

A typical high school senior, Donnie just wants to get to graduation and move on with his life. And enrollment at the University of Florida can't come soon enough. 

The big question though is will he be able to get out before the inevitable confrontation erupts? And when that fight which he can't avoid does arise, who will get caught in the middle?

Sept. '21 - My Good Friends the KKK

Billy Bob, Tommy and their friends are hungry. Fortunately, Clyde's restaurant is still open. Unfortunately, they're still wearing their KKK robes from their march earlier in the day. And Clyde's not white.

Things get really weird though when Billy Bob and Tommy realize that despite their best efforts. they actually like Clyde. So what are two confused KKK members in good standing supposed to do when they realize that they don't hate a black guy? Obviously, they come back to talk to him some more.

But Clyde's not going to let them off easy. In fact, he may even have some fun with them before he's finished teaching them a thing or two.

R&D - Lunch Atop A Skyscraper

New York during the Great Depression was tough for everyone, but if you got a job building one of the most majestic buildings of its day, you could risk your life to eke out a living, seventy floors above the streets of Manhattan. Fortunately, that's nothing for this crazy group of patriots!

R&D - Accomplices And Their Blue Eyed Masters

The 1970's were a wide open time for the fledgling field of Psychology. Experiments were being conducted everywhere and oversight was the most lacking element of this new wild west. Lab coats had supreme authority and no one stood in the way of protecting their lab rats. Even the rats who were human. The race to unlock the human mind was bound to have consequences, but that wasn't stopping these groundbreaking giants of their field from breaking a few eggs. How far will humanity go to prove that we are all willing accomplices or hold the desire to be the master of all we see?

R&D - More Fantastic Ideas Under Construction

I find my ideas for new scripts in the most interesting places.  My psychologist's office, driving by myself to the Keys for a business meeting, staring at treasured pictures of our past, reading about crazy psychology experiments from our past that would never be allowed in today's society, and so many other areas.  I never know where my next idea will come from, but I always enjoy that moment when an idea pops into my head and becomes an unstoppable force that I absolutely need to put onto paper.  I hope you enjoy reading and viewing my stories as much as I enjoy creating them.

And by all means, if you have a great idea for a story that you would love to see me tackle, I would love to hear about it.
