Synopsis

During their bi-weekly morale-boosting dinners at the local Hungarian restaurant, screenwriter/office temp/gay porn writer Mitchell Draper and his best friends, painter/coffeehouse manager Ingrid and actor/heath-food-store clerk Ramir, obsess over their professional aspirations, their sex lives and the illusive allure of celebrity. Their fortunes begin to change when Mitchell gets commissioned to script a film by Carmen

Denver, a cash-laden but somewhat dubious film producer who promises the film -- a bad Mafia Princess rip-off -- will "shake up a lot of people."

The plot thickens when Mitchell begins to suspect there may be more fact than fiction to Carmen's story: he finds himself receiving threatening phone calls and being stalked by a mysterious Antonio Banderas clone. In the meantime, Ingrid's art career takes off when she is courted by a dashing art gallery owner who looks like a young Sidney Poitier as Ramir juggles plans for a one-man-show and his tumultuous love life.

Equal parts quirky comedy, whodunit mystery, and good old-fashioned romance, SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE is a knowing meditation on fame and a wildly entertaining urban fairy tale.
