Courage

Courage is a story project which I possibly will be working on. This working title will be Fortitude. The project is currently on hold indefinitely. I’ll write a better summary about the project, as well as the emotions and other things associated with courage.

Originally, this was meant to be Lego crime film based on other crime dramas but has been changed into a science fiction movie. It was originally set to be released in the fall of 2009 after The Robot Man came out, but never happened.

It has nothing to do with other titles that are associated with Courage. This story will feature as science fiction genre. It will set as a main character Alex from France who will become Courage after an invasion of Los Angeles.

Plot

Set in the year 1978 in Los Angeles, a English student named Alex Banister who fought courage against an alien invasion in California, after a UFO crashed in the Mojave desert.

Background

I'll write a better summary about the movie project, as well as the emotions and other things associated with courage.

The project was started back in 2008 when I got fascinated about the emotion as well the Wikipedia article of it since there is not Encyclopedia Britannica article on Courage. The word courage originates from its emotion as it old word in french. Courage translates fortitude in French.

There have been various titles that used courage as books and movies. The Red Badge of Courage, a novel by Stephen Crane was published in 1895. They mediocre user reviews on the Internet Movie Database.
