Synopsis: Based on the Edgar Allen Poe short story, “The Cask of Amontillado,” this film follows to friends at a dinner with an unbelievable amount of tension between them. The night turns ugly when Monty reveals what his true intentions are…

Character Breakdowns:
Monty – 30-50 years old, cunning, can be calm and polite yet harsh and cruel, main character

Older Monty – the older the better 70-90, two short scenes shouldn’t take long at all

Fortunato (name may change) – Prude, high-up-ish, proud, clueless, rich, powerful yet not cunning

Servants – need as many as I can get!

Special Notes for Potential Cast/Crew: I am not a professional. I just finished high school and never got the chance to make this movie during my three years of filmmaking. I won’t be studying film in college so I want to make this movie right. I have never worked with a big crew before so this should be a fun experience to have a lot of help!
