Pitch a Movie
 
Nick Offerman goes to his father's funeral and discovers he has a brother from his father's secret "other" family: Zach Galifianakis. Nick's whole square world comes unglued. Zach is a professional force of destruction.

I don't care what else happens. Just put these guys together. :techman:

What do you think?

How about this. A ten hour long movie, filmed in black and white, made up of long tracking shots over grand, bleak scenes of human suffering. The film would feature elliptical storytelling following many different characters, jumping backwards and forwards through time, and focus on the ghettoization of third world countries following the influx of foreign capital.

Make it happen BELA TARR! And make sure to poison at least three cats!

"And it's called 'Lady Killer'?"

"'Brady Killer'! That's why he only kills women named Marcia, Jan or Cindy."

You've got some good ingredients but the wrong recipe here. Zach attends his father's funeral and the video "last will" expressly and hilariously states (through the visage of some old-hollywood manly leading man type) that in order to prove he isn't entirely useless, Zach has to go find Offerman's character (the son he had by an adventurer/hunter/outdoorswoman while on Safari [who if she appears can be played by Julie Andrews or the like and carry off a few scenes by being posh, old and English while wielding a hunting rifle.]) and together they have to conquer some survivalist challenge or hunt some notoriously elusive animal and if successful will be rewarded with half of his fortune each. If Zach comes back empty handed, he gets nothing.

Zach finds Offerman's character in Alaska or South America or whatever being manly and outdoorsy and exactly like his father always wanted Zach to be, Nick wants nothing to do with this soft rich guy who knows nothing about any of it.

Through the trials and tribulations of their task, they grow to like and then love each other, eventually bonding and accomplishing the task but deciding Zach is better off not taking his father's spiteful money and coming to stay with Offerman on his adventures (because it turns out he is already rich and never needed the money).

Nick might also find a love interest along the way, while Offerman surprises with a series of humorously implied one night stands with both men and women (and possibly a lion).

The sword in the stone appears in modern day Great Briton.

We follow a historian (Benedict Cumberbatch) and a Police Detective (Michael Fassbender) through the chaos and intrigue that erupts around this event.

Vernardhi, nice take on the premise. Why do I get the feeling Hemingway should be in there somewhere?

Sojourner, that's a trailer!


Stellar responses, all! Keep 'em coming!

Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy play themselves as well as each other's sibling. Fart jokes. Hilarity ensues.

Pride and Prejudice and Aliens

Director: Michael Bay

Because love is lame, but fighting back aliens with giant explosions isn't.

Or a Monkey Island movie.

Carefully investigating, he finds a 2ft tall, fur covered humanoid creature in his shower stall. A friendship develops as time passes, only to be threatened by the Big Bad Corporation that owns the planet when it turns out the little guy might be sentient, there bye voiding the Corporation's charter of ownership over the whole planet. A court battle commences to determine if the little fuzzy guy is really intelligent-with the future of the planet hinging on the outcome.

OPERATION: SPANX

An update of the Cary Grant/Tony Curtis comedy Operation: Petticoat as a political/submarine war drama.

Much like the USS Mason, a WWII destroyer with an all-black crew, the Navy decides to turn a Los Angeles-class submarine over to an all-female crew to see if women can hack it as submariners.

I imagine Demi Moore starring as the commander, with Kate Upton playing her sonar operator/lesbian lover. (Takes care of women in subs and gays in combat in one shot.)

Yes. Somone should adapt H. Beam Piper's work into a movie. Little Fuzzy is a good start. ford would be good as Holloway. Jeff Bridges might also be a good choice. Just use Piper's original version of the story and not the Scalzi re-boot from a couple years ago.
