So, I'm writing a script (as fast as I can) and structurally basing it on The Road Warrior. Instead of Max it's a girl with a crossbow. Instead of guzzuline it's dragon's blood. And, instead of cars, it's dragons.
There are two main bad guys in the Road Warrior -- Wez is the mohawk dude, and the Humungus is the shirtless guy in the hockey mask.
Now, I had gone and rolled them up into one character -- a golden dragon.
But now I've been told that if I have a script about girls with crossbows and dragons, I gotta have a warlock.
So I'm adding a warlock -- which makes it sort of the Humungus character.
Which means that even where I'm diverging from the Road Warrior structure, I'm still being brought back.
