This is Roderick's Round 10 article:
My idea would be a sci-fi movie called Key to the New Dimensions, set in three universes in parallel dimensions connected by a wormhole with a specific time of entrance.
In the film, the antagonist, Dr Jacob Reeves, is trying to converge the three parallel dimensions with a super energy converter, the Dimension Door. He wants to release the dark energy between the parallel universes. The key to the Dimension Door is in the DNA of a person called Jonathan Silver and his identical counterparts in the other two parallel dimensions. Professor Robinson, the inventor of the Dimension Door, had implanted the key in Silver.
Twisted Powers, the gatekeeper of the dimensions, knows the secret and tries to stop Dr Reeves. When Silver is kidnapped by Dr Reeves, Twisted Powers saves him and reveals the secret. The two try to warn Silver’s counterparts of the approaching disaster.
Meanwhile, Dr Reeves travels back in time to force Professor Robinson to give him the key but fails. He captures a toddler Silver and an elderly Silver in the other parallel universes. After taking their DNA, Dr Reeves launches an attack on Twisted Powers, targeting the remaining Silver. In the final part of the movie, Dr Reeves takes Silver in the Dimension Door, and activates the self-explosion.
But Professor Robinson had made the programme to permanently trap Dr Reeves inside the wormhole, and Jonathan sacrifices his life in the explosion. The film ends with Twisted Powers at Silver’s funeral, while the other Silvers are safe in their own universes.
I would cast Timothee Chalamet as Jonathan Silver. The male lead in the sci-fi film Dune, Chalamet has recently skyrocketed in popularity. His style of acting is more emotional and sensitive, which is what I want my audience to see in Jonathan Silver. Time magazine has even listed the actor as a “next generation leader”.
For Dr Reeves, I would cast Joaquin Phoenix. I believe that the best actor of the 2020 Academy Awards can become immersed in his role as my film’s antagonist and unleash the character’s dark power.
I hope this film will be engraved in the minds of all sci-fi fans!
