Sias’s experience as a producer, director and writer working with other BAFTA and Emmy-winners leaves him well placed to get this riveting action/ adventure script packaged and financed.

“Likely to attract top international talent.” – Tracking-Board.com.
LOGLINE: When a top U.S. pilot crash-lands on a Japanese island carrying the third atomic bomb, he’s forced to choose between honor and duty: detonate the bomb and annihilate a POW camp, or let the bomb fall into the hands of a disgraced Japanese commander.
“An excellent script. Dialogue smooth and natural. Characters unique, engaging and easy to root for.” – Austin Film Festival reader.
This option contract on The Third Bomb follows on the heels of a six-month shopping agreement, which demonstrates the producer’s passionate belief in the project and is a testament to the encouraging signals he’s already received.
