Would it be an animated film? Traditional or CGI? or would you like to see a live action version with Brendan Fraser in the lead?

An ex-President(Harrison Ford), rescues the current President(Jodie Foster) , who's plane has been hijacked by terrorists by flying the Presidential helicopter over the Presidential plane and pulls off a Bane like move and get's into the plane and kick's their ass with the help of the Vice President (Denzel Washington). Ladies and Gentelemen, Air Force Two.

Nice one, "Chuck Finley."


Anything with Jodie Foster in it is ok by me.

Well, I figured, we should have a female President and Jodie Foster fits the age requirements and I've always liked her and I haven't seen her in movies recently, so I miss her. I picked Denzel just because.

Re: Pitch a Movie

But doesn't the VP have to be the bad guy in this, trying to become President?

Sure, you could have that twist at the end. Ford and Washington duke it out, then Foster comes in at the last minute and helps Ford out. Originally the VP was planning to look like the hero, the President would be incapacitated and forced to resign but Ford got involved and so the VP changes his plans and tries to kill them both.

In the fantasy world, President Ford can kick President Washington's ass.

True, I was thinking of the classic, Ford is down on the ground, they just fought over the gun on the floor, For realistically is a tiny bit worn out by Washington, Washington is just about to pull the trigger when Foster clumps him over the head with a phone or something. This distracts Washington just long enough for Ford to get back up and gain his breath and finish the ass kicking. In the end Foster grants Ford some kind of honor. Perhaps Ford left office in disgrace and now his honor is restored.

Re: Pitch a Movie

What's The Frequency Kenneth?

Leonardo DiCaprio plays William Tager, a futuristic convict from the year 2265, who's roped into a dimensional shifting experiment, by Earth Vice-President Kenneth Burrows (Russell Crowe), under the promise of early parole, and ends up in an alternate dimension in the year 1986, trying to complete his mission before the countdown communications being transmitted to a receiver in his head expire, and he is forever trapped out of time & dimension

When it becomes clear there are others from his dimension there working against him, he fights against them, only to end up in jail when the deadline passes. After being released, & being completely unsuccessful in finding a way home, Tager is still crippled by continual transmissions. Upon watching CBS News, Tager recognizes news anchor Dan Rather as the man who sent him , as he is this universe's double of Kenneth Burrows.

Believing that he can get this man to stop the transmissions, he publicly assaults him, demanding the frequency on which they're transmitted, so he can block it. As time passes, he becomes convinced that the entire news center is a front for the group from his dimension that sent him, after failed attempts at gaining entry, he is arrested and committed to an asylum where the transmissions continue to haunt him

Meanwhile, this universe's double of William Tager, under the name Kenneth Burrows, is successful in using the news network for nefarious work in connection with the alternate universe's government conspiracy
