Target List — The Incredible Story Behind the Story

By John Reizer

Target List is a high-energy, fast-paced action-comedy movie about the creation of a life-saving healthcare instrument and big pharma’s attempt to suppress the technology.

Let me explain how the creators of this project took the story from a novel to a feature film that will make its world premiere in 2023.

The Concept

What if I told you there was a way to eradicate all animal and human diseases in a matter of minutes? What if a technology existed that could eliminate illnesses of any type in people without introducing chemical products, radiation, or making surgical incisions? How amazing would that be?

I am writing about an instrument that could heal the body using radio frequencies. I am writing about WAND — a wave-altering-nanoparticle-disrupter.

Who wouldn’t want such amazing technology in the world?

Big Pharma!

Target List is a story centered around a conspiracy theory within medicine that subscribes to the idea that the pharmaceutical industry is willing to hold back and even destroy healthcare technologies that might help humanity have a better expression of health for the pursuit of monetary gain.

When MJ Palo and I began transforming my 2019 novel, TheTarget List, into a full-length
screenplay; we decided to make several changes to the story. The primary reason for this was to cut down the expenses associated with the movie’s filming budget.

The storyline, plot, and anything else is fluid and ever-changing when writing fiction. This screenplay was no exception to that rule.

Having no prior experience with writing screenplays, I had to rely heavily on the expertise of my co-writer. I learned a lot from working with MJ Palo. Together, we transformed a good story into a very good full-length movie script.

After we finished the screenplay, MJ convinced me that we needed to shoot a short pilot or proof of concept film to attract investors to make the feature film.

Watching that entire process occur was a fantastic personal experience. When the pilot finally aired on Amazon Prime and other platforms in the summer of 2021, I appreciated once again the many talented people who had invested time and finances to bring the Target List story to fruition.

Target List was nearly canceled!

Then, in August 2021, I became deathly ill and was placed on a ventilator for three weeks. I remained in a hospital bed for 95 days and underwent seven surgical procedures to stop internal hemorrhaging. I nearly died several times. When I awakened from a medically induced coma, I had to relearn how to use my hands and walk. Six weeks of intense physical therapy followed before I could walk on my own.

After returning from death’s doorstep, I expressed to MJ Palo and Andrew Arguello that we needed to do whatever was necessary to make this film a reality, and Mad Wife Productions made that happen.

Amazingly, we are now ready to share Target List with the world. Working on this story with so many talented people has undoubtedly become one of the most exciting experiences of my creative writing career.

Target List, a feature film, would have been impossible to create without Mad Wife Productions, especially Andrew Arguello and MJ Palo. Thank you so much for taking a chance on the story!

Our first step in introducing Target List to the world will be the release of our movie’s trailer. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy our creative efforts and will watch the feature film once released.

We are releasing the Target List movie trailer on Thanksgiving Day at noon ET.

    This simulation brings damn hard challenges to us sometimes, John. But you were not supposed to go anywhere.
    The Target List movie was supposed to come into being. And who knows where it will lead from here!
    The movie exposes truths about the pharmaceutical companies and brings forth new ideas of healing. And it is an all around entertaining film with lots of suspense, action and humor.

    Who says there’s no such thing as magic! 🙂

      Everything about this story and movie has been magical, Lisa! I genuinely believe that something in the universe/simulation wants this movie out to the public. 🙂
