Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Damson Idris’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
Damson Idris – 19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Damson Idris and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Damson Idris production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Damson Idris’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Damson Idris and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

Get real, include the rules to establish the world and leave the audience feeling satisfied.
Before I get a nasty email from a delusional screenwriter insisting he or she wants to leave the rules a mystery, let me be frank; producers know that what sells a movie more than anything is word of mouth. If an audience leaves a theater feeling cheated due to lack of proper information and the story wasnt believable to them, they wont recommend it to their friends and family. This means the movie will fail! No need to worry because the likelihood a producer would purchase such a script is zero! Go ahead, leave out the rules and dont properly establish the world; maybe you can use the screenplay as a paperweight or a dust collector.
Damson Idris – The rules of the world can be setup early, layered into the story or even postponed for a big twist ending, but the information MUST be there or the screenplay doesnt stand a chance at a sale! I recommend adding the rules to the story based on which way creates the most suspense or provides the biggest shocker. But be very careful as to the placement of this information. If for example, you wait too long to tell us why the vampires can live in the daylight, then you risk audience alienation. Plot out the rules and unique circumstances of the world youve created. By outlining you can see where the information works best to create suspense, yet assures the audience suspends its disbelief. A helpful tip is to consider the genre and how its been done before and use that as a model to disperse your storys information.
This doesnt mean if youve written a ghost story that you need to try to explain ghosts. The writer only needs to establish the world and its rules when it is outside the norm. By outside the norm, I mean the audience has never seen it before or it breaks the established rules. If the audience expects zombies to eat flesh, but in your story the zombies only eat the flesh of platinum blondes and guys named Steve, then you better explain why.
Damson Idris – #NAME?
– In The Silence of the Lambs, Clarice is not just fighting Buffalo Bill; shes fighting evil in a larger sense.
In a lot of stories, too, the battle is taking place on several different levels. There will be a particular antagonist that the hero/ine is fighting, but the real opponent is bigger.
