GR Productions Presents - Payday: The Heist



Its that time again party people! But I'd like to start by saying that this Production is going to be a bit different from the others due to the fact that a movie with 5+ heists seems a bit redundant, and the game has no real narrative. So for this one, in addition to selecting the studio and director, the actors we choose - we will choose our shoot locations AND the story will be based on the Three heists we select. We can come up with some love story / character conflict to fill the time, but at its core we want this film will be a white-knuckle experience that rivals the best heist movies ever made. We also benefit a ton from this game not having much of a narrative outside of the work of these professional jobbers.

For those of you who have never done this before, we are casting a movie based on a popular game. This time the game is Payday: The Heist. These selections are typically voted on, but debates are encouraged.



Some of the primary characters won’t change at all - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf, Chains, Bain, etc - but the story line they follow, the motives for the heists, and supporting characters will be determined by us - the GR Forum members (god help us). Once we figure out the story we’re trying to tell it will help us better select a studio and director, and then lastly the cast. The cast will be epitomized by the masks so maybe we don’t need to chase the A-Listers, but strong personalities will definitely bring this to life.

The intro to our storyline is this - This group of professionals are bound only by their efficiency. Just like the people you know and work with in your office, you know their strengths, you know their weaknesses, but you keep them a bit at arms length. The group relies on each other, but they are not necessarily friends. Our first scene after the credits we will establish their bad-assery with one of the three heists you select below, and the movie’s climax will be the other heist and main plot-line. So for our first choice we need to set the tone, and set it to LOUD!


Which studio is going to give this project the funding and the resources to make it as large scale as it needs to be?


Ok, so it seems like our professional have a linear trajectory. The three heists they will take part in and the 3 different locations that it will happen.

The Story / The City / The Heists:

The gang is assembled as a professional group of jobbers with different skill sets and day jobs. We get introduced to each of them via masked phone call through a burner phone as it interrupts their daily lives. Some men have day jobs, some men live in the underworld permanently, and others are drifters with no roots (We'll decide which ones are which - later), but each of them are using their skill-set on the regular whether its a weapons expert, a driver, or a demo-worker.. The call comes in for a meet-up explaining a new opportunity and potential benefits - using slang dialogue to mask the true nature of the conversation. The independently makes their way to Canada (some sneaking across under the radar - others using "real-life events" to find themselves in Toronto). The team meets the day of at an undisclosed location to go over the details of the heist and ride out. We then get introduced to the famous masks that they each use to do their jobs.

Panic Room - Toronto, CAN Their mutual contact [tbd] gets a lead on gang with huge stash and plans to meet and greet with local gang. He will pretend to coincidentally be there when the PayDay crew strong arms the place, but he had intention of ever doing a “deal”. The contact is fitted with a tracer and will trigger it when he is in the room where the stash is located so the PayDay crew can follow the beacon to the cash. The heist ultimately turns into a smash and grab shootout, where the group shoots their way out of the gang hideout [minor police presence] after looting their panic room and they take their contact hostage as they make their escape. Gang Leader [tbd] featured.

- After the heist, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford appears on the news to discuss the shootout and growing gang problem in Toronto and some new initiatives he plans on introducing into the city to combat this wicked underworld scourge.

- After the Panic Room and before the Green bridge we learn a bit more about the characters relationships - with each other and their everyday lives. We start to see how their “regular lives” impact or bleed into this alternate lifestyle. During the time (3 months or so), the gang gets word of their next job, a rescue mission funded by a wealthy Chinese backer. They use their time to research where the hostage is kept, move to the area, map transportation routes & escape routes, assemble supplies and minor details that might become useful to the job. A week before the actual job schedule they get word that an ideal window has opened and that they should take advantage of the prisoner transport since it will be their easiest opportunity window. The gang agrees (obviously this negatively impacts their regular life), they assemble and within the hour they are read to move. Significant others and underworld characters featured [tbd] for this segment.

Green Bridge - San Fran, CA The Chinese business man pays the crew to extract his son from police escort has paid for their escape & distraction if they use the bridge as their window for extraction. The son’s detail is stopped during transport and the group seals the bridge and compromised the transports communication. The team is on a very-tight timeline before any large alarms sound. They extract the prisoner, and there is a firefight. Pilot, Chinese business man, and businessman's son featured[tbd].

- During the escape, one member (Wolf) doesn’t make the chopper and steals a motorbike to exit the bridge making it to a hideout. The team is taken to a cargo ship in the middle of the Pacific and dressed as ship crew for the next two weeks as they make their way to China with the rescued prisoner. Upon arrival they are rewarded, but cannot return home immediately since they have no record of leave the US and returning to the US without an exit point would raise flags. They Chinese business man agrees to grant them passage back home on another vessel out (the conversation is strong and he has the Payday crew by the balls) if they agree to one more large heist which has political ramifications. The job - First World Bank. The gang has a sense that it is a suicide mission, but the business man shows them that he has everything they need from weapons, security passes, personnel knowledge and schematics - trying to assure them that all he needs is the right crew to execute the plan. Upon agreeing their training and education takes place on the tanker back to DC. Arriving in DC a few of them contemplate disappearing, but the ones with families know they can be found - so they proceed with the job.

First World Bank - Washington, DC Casing the joint, imitate employees, find the manager, get to the vault, stuff the duffel bags and steal information off of secured computers (you get the idea that this was the real bounty for the Chinese business man), and C4 to demo an escape. Very stealthy mission - a lot of close calls, a few necessary deaths, but no alarms tripped. Security personnel & Bank Manager/CEO featured [tbd].

---------


The Director: Michael Mann




Executive Producer: Richard Donner




The Studio: Legendary Pictures





The Cast:

Michael Kelly as
Wolf
: 32yr old brains of the group. Nice family man turned muscle to make ends meet. Co-Star and pretty high profile role


Shia LeBouf as
Hoxton:
The British jobber with the sheet a mile long. Tracked by the FBI and the "personality" of the group. Good a crowd control.


Charlie Hunnam as
Dallas:
The Mastermind and de facto quarterback the group [has direct mob ties] and keeps the timing the plays and keeping everyone on task. Deals directly with The Handler


Chad Coleman as
Chains
:Former military vet, combat hardened with a screw or two loose and is a heavy-weapon & demo expert.


Harvey Keitel as
The Handler
:


Wolf's Wife:

Chains' Girlfriend:

Gang Leader - Panic Room:

Bad Ass Gang Member - Panic Room:

Mayor Rob Ford - Panic Room : As Himself


Wealthy Chinese Banker - Green Bridge:

Wealthy Banker's Son - Green Bridge:

Escape Pilot - Green Bridge:

Head of Security - First World Bank:

Bank Manager - First World Bank:

Corrupt Politician / Bank CEO - First World Bank:

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) only appears in a cameo in the form of a name reference and a headshot photo when "The Handler" is discussing potential professionals for the job of breaking his son out of police custody. The Wealthy Chinese Businessman prefers a team because as highly recommended as Wick is (The handler's first choice) he doesn't think one man can pull the job off alone.

For starters, we should cast the crew from 'Heat:' Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Jon Voight...

Thirded.

But don't forget Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves! I mean, we'd have to resurrect Swayze but it'd be totally worth it.

Fine, we'll find some way to cameo those decrepit fat asshats, One of them might be the crews handler, the other might be a CEO, another might be some poor hostage - now VOTE!

The initial votes are in - It looks like the 3 heists we will be covering during the film will be:

Green Bridge
Panic Room
First World Bank


Settling on the order of these is what we will use to drive the story, and who we cast. So, the next choices we will have to make is storyline order and movie locations.

I'd like to use San Francisco, CA because I know it and it really hasn't had a good action movie since The Rock. I don't really care about the order other than Green Street Bridge being the climatic last rescue heist / shootout.

What do you think?

To be fair, I never played Payday 1. I'm sure all those missions are awesome, I'm just unfamiliar with them.

Seeing how I haven't played Payday 2 I'm gonna have to vote for part 1.

Also let's film in Toronto. It's cheap and we can pretend it's New York or Chicago like all the other damn movies filmed here.

I know.

Give it some excitement. NY and LA are so played at this point. A medium sized city would be fun to see heists in.

Weren't the games done in Washington D.C anyway?

So far:

Richmond, VA (I've drive through there as well on the I-95, seems ripe for the plucking)
Toronto, CAN
Washington, DC
Austin, TX
San Francisco, CA

I'll Recommend Austin, TX.

DC seems impossible, like shootouts in public in DC wouldn't fly due to the CIA n Secret Service. Like why do all the mobsters and villans converge on Gotham n Metropolis.. seems dumb to me - why not go somewhere where you can live under the radar, but oh well.

They are professionals, so traveling to jobs seems like part of the gig. We can do multiple locations. Are any of these locations OUT of the question for you guys? Richmond seems like a no-go if I'm taking the collective temperature.
