    Unfortunately, there's no way that would be allowed to be made. You think one cartoonist got serious threats? Any live action Mohammed film would unleash a jihad what would make that cartoonist thing look like Saturday In The Park.

    ^ Verdad. Here's a more feasible idea:

    - Kenneth! This musical extravaganza tells the story of the Clinton impeachment from the perspective of an Austin Powers-like Ken Starr, descending deeper and deeper into Macbeth-like madness as his outrageous investigations go on. (If Macbeth was a fabulously acrobatic dancer and first-rate singer, that is.)

    It would only work if Kevin James is the head priest or deacon or whatever, with a cameo of Rob Schneider's "You can do it!" guy.

    I've had a conception originating from 1996....a film in my own head, fully scripted and plotted though well over 120 pages. It's fully cast with almost 50 actors selected. Since it was 17 years back, some of the cast have passed away. Due to time and computer issues involved, a bare minimum of three posts and perhaps five in-depth paragraphs be required to sufficiently highlight it.

    The main question is, would it be fair to inflict the concept on the simultaneously obtuse, addle-minded, careless and the daffy minority of one? Not that I have any issues with his pitches. The vast majority of you MAY buy into the terrorist parakeet concept, and nobody's required to applaud, bow or like the premise. But if the mind is closed before the attempt's made, what's the point of attempting it?

    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).

    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.

    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.
