I'm currently planning a rewrite to the 2006 "Dead or Alive" film, based on the best selling videogame series.

Here's a teaser trailer, written by me, as a taste of what's to come:

BLACKNESS.

Sound of RAINDROPS... drop... drop... drop... open to a pretty, enchanting forest. A dark-haired WOMAN sits on a slab of rock in the midst of a raging STORM, her face full of loss and longing.

A mystical BIRD squeaks; distracted, the woman looks up into the sky.

And the CLOUDY LANDSCAPE of the sky becomes a SNOWY PLAIN.

Footsteps lead up to a MAN -- dressed in white robes -- heavily breathing, giving quick glances over his shoulder.

HAYATE (V.O.): Why are you following me?

DONOVAN (V.O): You have no clue to your past, do you? You're more enchanting than we could have hoped for.

A HELICOPTER booms down onto the snowy plain. Locks eyes with the prisoner. Exchange a fierce look of determination.

The helicopter opens FIRE -- ripping into the snow fields below. But as the smoke clears, it's revealed... the man has DISAPPEARED.

EXT. MOUNTAINSIDE - SEA - DAY

Dark-haired and elusive DONOVAN stands, peering over the edge of the mountain, looking to the vast sea below. His assistant, CHRISTIE, stands elegantly beside him.

CHRISTIE: What now?

DONOVAN: We continue with our plans. We may have lost our best work... but we have so much to gain.

EXT. FOREST - DAY

The dark-haired woman we saw earlier rises from her resting spot.

KASUMI (V.O.): I'm going to find my brother.

She makes her way into the forest, her blue robes billowing in the wind behind her.

NINJA (V.O.): But he's gone from this world.

KASUMI (V.O.): Yet he remains in my heart.

EXT. MANSION - DAY

A well-preserved Victorian mansion.

GEN FU (V.O.): You have proven yourself, my young apprentice.

INT. MANSION - FOYER - DAY

GEN FU (60) stands before his young, blonde, protege, ELIOT.

GEN FU: You've made me so proud.

He hands him a SHURIKEN; engraved with the letters "DOA".

ELIOT: What's this?

GEN FU: Your final test. If you suceed in this, you will truly be invincible.

INT. LABORATORY - DAY

CHRISTIE: Everything's prepared, sir.

DONOVAN: Excellent. I think it's time we let her loose.

EXT. CHURCHYARD - NIGHT

A group of WARRIORS, including Kasumi, Eliot and the superstar wrestler TINA ARMSTRONG stand in a circle -- anxious and wary.

A sound RUMBLES in the distance. Omnious... growing LOUDER...

ELIOT: That wouldn't happen to be your stomach would it?

TINA: Does it look like I eat?

INT. HELICOPTER - DAY

Tina and Christie sit in the helicopter, as it rips through the sky. Suddenly something catches Christie's eye.

CHRISTIE: Look out!

EXT. SKY - DAY

The helicopter EXPLODES in a fiery ball of METAL and GLASS!

INT. LABORATORY - CORRIDOR - DAY

Eliot dispatches several guards with quick, powerful BLOWS!

INT. LABORATORY - ESCAPE - DAY

Donovan moves hurriedly through, flanked by several guards.

CHRISTIE (V.O.): That *****. After everything I've done for him!

EXT. BOAT - DAY

A purple-haired WOMAN stands on the deck of a ship, clad in dark robes and wielding a SWORD.

HAYABUSA (V.O.): She's here.

KASUMI (V.O.): I know. I have seen her.

HAYABUSA (V.O.): She won't rest until she's killed us both.

INT. LABORATORY - ESCAPE - DAY

Hayate knocks out Donovan's guards with a single POWERFUL KICK!

INTERCUT:

Eliot looks up anxiously from his bedroom as the rear of the complex EXPLODES!

In a desert-like environment, superninja HAYABUSA swerves to avoid a spray of bullets!

INT. LABORATORY - ESCAPE - DAY

DONOVAN: The lab rat.

HAYATE: What do you know?

DONOVAN: More than you.

INT. LABORATORY - SECURE CHAMBER - DAY

DONOVAN (V.O.): You were our most gifted work. But we found something better.

The door HISSES... it opens, SLOWLY, dramatically, WHITE LIGHT escaping from the cracks... as a pair of LEGS steps out.

KASUMI (V.O.): Hayate! Don't you remember me?

EXT. MOUNTAINSIDE - SEA - DAY

HAYATE (V.O.): I don't know anymore.

And he allows himself to fall, TOPPLING TOWARDS THE SEA BELOW! As he hits, the screen turns BLACK.

CHRISTIE (V.O.): Welcome... to "Dead or Alive".

The letters "DOA" cascade onto screen, as MUSIC plays with fierce intensity.

CHRISTIE (V.O.): You're invited.

TEASER TRAILER ENDS.
 
Of course. :) I intend it to be bigger, better and braver than what the 2006 adaptation gave us.

I'll currently still in the developing stages, but I'm really looking forward to writing some key action sequences - which I hope are pretty impressive.

Thanks for the compliment. I'll post my progress for those who are interested.
