Humpty Dumpty is the first film from new sci-fi scribe Billy Majestic.
“Billy Majestic is one of the most original, imaginative voices I have come across in some time. The universe he has created is vast, and is populated with the stuff of many exciting movies for years to come,” said Mark Ordesky.
“Billy Majestic’s screenplay is totally unique and the story is fiercely original”, said Suzanne de Passe.
Mark Ordesky served as Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones are also producing the film on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks.
Humpty Dumpty first gained notoriety on the internet when the announcement was made at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Since that time, anticipation for the film has gone viral, appearing on hundreds of fan sites around the world.
The story involves two back-wood hicks, The Brakk Brothers, who capture an alien female scientist collecting plant samples in the swamp behind their ramshackled house. They keep her captive in a room under the house and ultimately abuse her. After months of captivity, she escapes into the swamp. Before she expires, she gives birth to a half human-half alien monstrosity who exacts terrifying revenge on the Brakk Brothers for what they did to his mother.
