"The Gateway"
 
Tweetable Logline:
 
A war vet, a misanthrope and an illegal immigrant seek salvation in a pair of inexperienced drug dealers staked out at a desert motel.
 
Elevator Pitch:
 
THE GATEWAY is an exciting ensemble film that tells the stories of several people whose lives intersect in an explosive way at a rundown desert motel. When a drug deal at the motel turns bad, an accidental gunshot starts a chain reaction changing everyone’s lives for the good, the bad, and the indifferent. Equal parts crime thriller and modern western, the film highlights the chaos of modern time and has a similar tone to the films of the Coen Bros with a dash of Sam Peckinpah.
 
Production Team:
 

Writer/Director: Natan Moss
Producers: Luke Edwards, Lee Sacks
Cast: Luke Edwards

About the Production:
 
"I appreciate artists who are can find a balance of depth and commercial viability. Preston Sturges, Sam Peckinpah, Woody Allen, Billy Wilder and the Coen Brothers are a few examples. The Gateway is the type of film that can straddle these worlds. It is a thriller/comedy with an intelligent story and a complex set of characters. The Gateway combines suspense and humor forcing us to fear and laugh at this ensemble cast of malcontents. My vision for The Gateway closely resembles what happens when characters from a Tarantino film show up to a motel run by David Lynch." -- Natan Moss
