Movie Pitch: Three Days

I posted this on the wiki channel, and I'm not in the mood to type it again, so I'll copy and paste it.

Anyway! I am "currently" (And by currently, I mean that I put the story on hold...) writing a story on Wattpad, and it's a fanfic about Ashton Irwin, but for this I'll just make a new character to replace Ashton, and make a few changes to this story. 

PLOT: Three years ago, Marilyn Fitzgerald and Jasper Hampton were the high school sweethearts. They had been dating since the start of their sophomore year in high school, and they were "perfect" for each other. But after they graduated three years ago, Jasper left Marilyn to go on tour with his band almost immediately, and that was the last time they saw each other, or even talked in general.

Now, Marilyn is now 21, and she's home in Chicago while Jasper is stll making music with his band. But when Marilyn's best friend is getting married, that brings Jasper into town, and he is destined to make things right between him and Marilyn. But he has three days to do that.

(If you wanted to read how the story is going so far, then: https://www.wattpad.com/story/35098217-three-days-ashton-irwin! )

Characters:

Marilyn Fitzgerald- Marilyn Fitzgerald is a 21 year old college student at Notre Dame, and she is currently home in Chicago for the summer. She dated Jasper until her high school graduation three years ago, and they haven't talked to each other since then. Marilyn is usually sweet, but she tends to be extremely bitter when she's annoyed, and she tends to make sarcastic remarks often. But she's very loved by her friends and family.

Jasper Hampton- Jasper Hampton is a 21 year old musician in the popular band that I haven't exactly thought of a name yet, but suggestions would be appreciate for the band name with two of his old high school friends. Jasper is an extremely sweet person, and he usually puts other people before him. He dated Marilyn in high school until they both graduated, and he left her so he could go on tour with his band (and he did ask her to come with him, but she declined because she was going to college.)

Elizabeth Stabler- Elizabeth Stabler is Marilyn's best friend. They met in high school when Marilyn first moved to Chicago, and they have been best friends ever since. Elizabeth is currently engaged to Jack Buchanan after dating since their freshman year in high school. The two got engaged after she graduated from Joliet Junior College. Elizabeth is normally a kind hearted person, but she continues to act different as her wedding date approaches. 

Rose , who's last name is to be determined- Rose is Marilyn's other best friend that she met when she first got to Notre Dame. She is also from the Chicago area, and Rose became good friends with Elizabeth after Marilyn introduced them. Rose is a bit crazy about boys, and she is known for having failed relationships. Like Marilyn, she tends to make sarcastic remarks, but she can often be a bit bitter. But her friends still manage to love her, anyway.

Jack Buchanan- Jack Buchanan is Elizabeth's fiance. Jack happens to be good friends with Marilyn, and he has that type of friendship with Rose where they always insult each other. Jack is typically a nice guy and he always tries looking out for Elizabeth, but can snap at times. 

Mark Shepard- Mark is Marilyn's on-and-off boyfriend, and they are currently broken up. Mark is extremely controlling and overprotective, Rose absolutely hates him, and he oftens fights with Marilyn, but she usually finds her way back to him, and they're okay for a few weeks. During this, Mark only makes an appearance at the start, and Marilyn uses him to make it appear to Jasper that she's over him

Originally, I was going to change some of the material in this to suite the Wiki Channel, but now that I'm pitching it on this network and the story was PG-13, I think it's fine :p anywayy, opinions?

Sorry this is late, just NOW getting to this :p but here is the synopsis: 

The movie starts with a flashback three years prior to the story. It shows Marilyn sitting on the stage at her high school graduation, and her principal calls her up to the podium to give her valedictorian speech. So she gives the speech, and she graduates with everyone else, all that stuff.  After the ceremony, Jasper pulls her to the side to tell her that he's leaving that night to go on tour with his band (And I could still use band name suggestions, btw). Marilyn is upset that he didn't tell her ahead of time, and Jasper tries to apologize. After that fails, Jasper pleads for Marilyn to come with him, but she declines because she is going to college. Later, Marilyn drives Jasper to the airport, and Marilyn tells him, "Don't have too many groupies." Jasper laughs and replies with, "God, I love you." Marilyn says she loves him, too, and Jasper promises to stay in touch with her. He kisses Marilyn one last time, hugs her, and boards his plane. Marilyn starts walking away, the screen is kind of fading out, and Marilyn has a voice over saying, "And that was the last time I ever spoke to Jasper Hampton."

Time jumps to three years later, and Marilyn is sitting on Elizabeth's couch in Elizabeth's apartment. Elizabeth cries for Marilyn to help her with her wedding dress zipper because she thinks she broke it. Marilyn fixes it because it was just fabric caught in the zipper, and Rose comes into the apartment. They all start talking and stuff, and they plan on going out that night for Elizabeth's "bachelorette party".

Marilyn heads to her apartment and gets ready and waits in her apartment for a little while until Mark shows up at her door. He stumbles in, and Marilyn questions what he's doing here. Mark ignores the question and calls Marilyn beautiiful, and Marilyn questions if he's drunk. Mark comes onto to Marilyn and kisses her, and Marilyn tries to pull away, but eventually gives in and allows it to happen. Nothing too bad happens, they just make out on the couch until Marilyn realizes that Mark didn't close the door. ANYWAY..........

Marilyn invites Mark to head down to the bar with the group and he accepts. The two arrive there, and Rose is ticked off at the fact that Mark came. Rose has this deep hatred for Mark that no one really understands, but she never has anything nice to say about him. Anyway, Elizabeth is there with Jack while Rose is scouting out hot guys. Eventually, Rose spots this one person, turns to the group, and asks, "Do you think he would be interested in me?" 

"Well, that depends. Who are you talking about?"

"The guy that's standing by the door." Rose points at him, and guess what? It's Jasper Hampton! *shocker*

Marilyn drags Elizabeth along to the women's restroom with her, and is asking Elizabeth a bunch of questions related to Jasper (Such as, "Should I go over there?", "Should I act like I don't see him?"), and Elizabeth just tells her not to talk to him. The two go back to the group.

Marilyn catches Jasper looking over at her, so she asks Mark to put his arm around her and to give her a kiss on the cheek in an attempt to make him jealous. After a while, Jasper makes his way over to their booth and talks to them for a while until he walks back to his booth. Mark then gets up to take a phone call, and back a few minutes later, saying that it was his girlfriend. Marilyn is upset that Mark tried to hook up with her, ends everythinng between them, and rushes out of the bar. Jasper follows after her.

Marilyn walks a few blocks and sits down on a bench in the park, and just starts thinking about everything until her thoughts are interrupted by Jasper. He asks where her boyfriend (Mark)is. Without looking at him, she tells him that he isn't her boyfriend, and Jasper mentions how it looks like it, but Marilyn just stays quiet. Jasper asks for Marilyn tocome with him and Marilyn asks where to, but Jasper just says, "Wherever the streets take us."

The two walk around Chicago and catch up on what's been going on in there lives and Jasper reveals that he's there because Elizabeth invited him to the wedding. Marilyn stops in front of her apartment building and says she should go home. Jasper starts to walk away, but Marilyn calls after him and invites him to just crash on her couch ("It's cheapter than a hotel,). The two go up to her apartment, and fall asleep.

Marilyn wakes up the next morning and begins making breakfast, but the food catches on fire, and Jasper just suggests that they go to iHop, and so they do. Up until a day before the wedding, the two adventure Chicago together. They go to a Cubs game, the Chicago Art Instiute, a Blackhawks game, go site seeing, etc,e night before the wedding, Jasper mentions that he has to leave tomorrow night after the wedding and he promises to stay in touch, but Marilyn says, "You said that last time." This sparks a huge fight between the two, and Marilyn kicks him out ("Get out. I do not want to talk to you again and in fact, I don't want to think about you. When you see me tomorrow, don't think for a second that you should come talk to me.). Jasper leaves, and Marilyn starts sobbing in her bedroom. 

The next morning marilyn is seen with Rose at Elizabeth's apartment and they're getting ready for the wedding. Marilyn is telling Rose and Elizabeth about what happenned between her and Jasper, and Rose just tells her to let him go. The three all go to the church where the wedding is at, and the wedding is succesful. After the wedding, everyone heads to the place where the reception is being held. Marilyn gives her Maid of Honor speech, but after that, Marilyn just sits at a table and watches everyone else, until Jasper asks her to dance, and Marilyn reluctantly says yes. The two start dancing, and they forgive each other. Jasper kisses Marilyn, and asks her to come with him for the rest of this tour, which will end in early August. Marilyn thinks about this for a minute, but she agrees to come with him. Jasper kisses Marilyn and says he loves her, and after the reception, Marilyn goes home to pack her things, and the two go to the airport. The last scene is them getting ready to board the plane, and the camera possibly zooms in on them holding hands. The scene fades away as a song (I'm not sure which one yet) is playing, and the credits role.

I love it! And maybe you could throw in a reason why he couldn't contact her?

And for band names, I know there are some websites out there that could help with that.  :P
