If you have several characters, each with a story to tell, why not tell them separately? Then, once you’ve developed each individual story, you can take a look at them and see how the details could intersect.
It may also be helpful to write plot points on notecards. Then you can lay them out and rearrange them to play with your timeline without having to erase-and-redraw (or undo-and-redraw, if you’re working digitally). What are the relationships between the actions and the events in the various stories? Which need to happen earlier, and which later? Moving the cards around might help you see possible connections you hadn’t thought of before.
Additionally, spending time with the characters by writing their stories separately may help you decide which one (or ones) you feel most drawn to working with in more depth.
I am a big softy for Sea Turtles.
80’s horror remakes are fucking epic.
