A true story about a screenwriter hired by an actor to rewrite his script, only to discover later that the actor was a compulsive liar willing to say or do anything to get his movie made. More
The names have been changed but the story is all true. Garrett Stein was a screenwriter looking for his big break but hesitant to make the move to Hollywood. Victor Roman was an actor from Bucharest living in Chicago and looking for someone to rewrite his epic action story. Several years and several thousand lies later, a movie somehow got made - even though it's only been seen by a handful of people.
While it's hard to know what's true and what's a lie when it comes to Victor, this is Garrett's account of dealing with a compulsive liar willing to say anything to get his movie made. From lying about celebrity stars to the timeless classic about the check being in the mail, the setting may not be Los Angeles but the story in "Screenwriter Scars" has all the makings of its own crazy, unbelievable feature film.
