Brandan Smith | 1 comments Book is about the heist and ransoming of the master (show?) print of the sequel to a Star Wars-like film. However, the director (a George Lucas kind of guy) thinks his new movie is a failure and refuses to pay the ransom, thinking the force majeure insurance will cover the losses and keep anyone from seeing the film.
So the thieves have to convince the director that the film is worth the ransom money. To do this, they kidnap a critic to watch the film on a Moviola and give his critique, which turns out to be a big thumbs up for the sequel.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Thank you in advance.

Brandan, what's the genre (which we need to add to the topic header/title) - e.g., adult thriller?

Add more plot details from your message #1 to the topic header/title, so someone can recognize your book from that description alone. Many members only read the headers. We have thousands of book requests.
