Suspense / Thriller
An Ex-Con on the straight and narrow is pulled into a twisted game of Russian Roulette in Las Vegas to save his wife. 666. Six Contestants, six chambers in a revolver and six sides of a die.
Riley Toback is at a crossroads. After serving a four year prison sentence for Armed Robbery, he’s determined to make a fresh start in Atlantic City. Until his brother-in-law, drowning in gambling debt, convinces him to pull a heist at a Jersey Shore nightclub.
In the aftermath of the botched robbery, Karim Rashid, a vicious Indian gangster, tracks them down. And he makes Riley an offer.
Triple Six. One round is loaded into a revolver and the chamber is spun. The Contestant rolls a die, with the face value dictating how many times the weapon is fired. If you can survive three rounds, you win.
With his wife and life on the line, Riley takes the deal.

From author Sean Bridges: ROLL OF THE DIE is my first novel, although I've been a writer for fourteen years. I have ten completed screenplays, a pair of documentaries, an animated short and a graphic novel in the works.
I was a 2001 Finalist and 2004 Semi-Finalist for the prestigious Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship. I've had a project invited to the 2005 Sundance Institute Producers Conference, and have placed in a variety of writing competitions, including the Austin Film Festival, PAGE International, FADE IN Awards, Cynosure Screenwriting and Scriptapalooza.
I'm currently working on my second novel, ON THE BAYOU. An action-thriller in the swamps of Louisiana.
