I’m watching Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as I type this. This movie has inspired me. Alternate history movies are a great idea!
I want to make a movie in the same vein as AL:VH, but have the protagonist be George W. Bush as he personally hunts down Saddam Hussein and single-handedly unites the Iraqi people. I’m thinking an action segment where G.W. is caught alone and must fight his way through the hostile streets of Baghdad. I’m talking G.W. in a tank being a bad-ass. G.W. in a jet being a bad-ass. G.W. being a bad-ass in hand to hand combat. G.W. saying “bad-ass” at least fifty times during the course of the movie.
When G.W. finally encounters Saddam, he lassos him (because G.W. is also a rancher) and publicly hangs him to the roaring cheers of the Iraqi people. Women flash G.W. their breasts and aren’t beaten by their husbands. The flag in the public square is taken down and replaced by that of the red, white, and blue. George W. Bush is the face on all Iraqi currency.
Keep in mind, this is just my pitch. If Hollywood wants to give me some money, I will gladly quit my job to write the screenplay.
