    Nice. I'll give some thought to filling out the character roster and get back to you. It's all spitballing anyway. No way it gets made, which is a shame.

    An inter-governmental agency conflict

    This could be made as an action comedy or a serious action thriller depending on cast/director.
    A high ranking CIA official due to some bs political reason is beefing with a high ranking FBI official. They each send their agent to try to kill each other (or sabotage if it's comedy). In the thriller, you have two bad asses (Idris Elba types), in comedy you cast actors good with physical comedy (Jim Carrey or Will Farrel) Each agent has distinctive style. One can be a great martial artist while the other is a Macgyver type, while in the comedy, one is a great planner/terrible at execution, the other doesn't think, but somehow barely makes it every time. At the end, it turns out both of their superiors are corrupted, and they become friends and team up to take both high ranking officials down.

    an all female remake of the original Star Wars movie.

    Chloe Moretz as Lucy Skywalker
    Natalie Alyn Lynd as Independant Self Made Businesswoman Leia
    Helen Mirren as Jody-Wan Kenobi
    Queen Latifah as Darth Vadher
    Olivia Munn as Shrewbacca (captures her acting range)
    Kristen Wiig as R2SHE2 (so she can't improv around her shit acting)
    Aubrey Plaza as She3p0

    and finally

    Susan Kelechi Watson as Chan Yolo (because Beyonce was too busy for filming)

    It can be made into a comedy, a thriller, a drama, or all of the above. :)

    Comedy.. With some family drama, and maybe a thriller ending.

    I could write it.

    stop-motion adaptation of Flann O’Brien’s novel, The Third Policeman, featuring an all-Irish voice cast. ideally in the visual stylings of Laika a la Coraline, but maybe aimed at a slightly more mature audience thematically.

    if I had any sort of talents whatsoever I’d do it myself. but alas, I am complete trash & should probably just die.

    A trilogy where you can watch all three movies simultaneously and they combined to make the greatest story ever told.

    And every time a light saber fight breaks out, we have Melissa McCarty pop out and scream "that's gonna leave a mark!"

    James is a middle aged man working a dead end job. He has no girlfriend, no family. No future. In an attempt to deal with depression, he teaches himself to lucid dream. He finds he has a real talent for it. He can escape into a fantasy world every time he goes to sleep.

    Then he starts to see the future in his dreams.

    First in small ways, like dreaming of a friend he hasn't seen in years, then meeting him a few days later. Or dreaming of snow, and a freak cold snap happening in the middle of April.

    Then one night he sees something horrifying. ISIS have been methodically smuggling terrorists into the UK disguised as asylum seekers. Supporters have built up weapons and explosives. All of this is leading up to the greatest terror attack in history. On Valentine's Day, ISIS teams will attack a dozen schools and hospitals across the UK. The terrorists are all battle hardened veterans who fought in Iraq. They are armed to the teeth. One man in each team is a walking bomb; carrying as much explosive as can be strapped to him, wired to a dead man's switch. Even if the police or military manage to shoot him, the bomb will go off. Stretched beyond breaking point by simultaneous attacks across the country, Britain's elite armed police units and even the SAS will be unable to stop the carnage.

    James sees thousands of innocent victims, most of them women and children, slaughtered. At first he is horrified, determined to find out as much information as he can before trying to alert the security services.

    But his dreams reveal something else. One of the schools that will attacked is just 200 yards away from where James works. He sees himself kill the attackers and save most of the children. He is lauded as a hero, the only hero on a day when the police, the military and everyone else failed to protect innocent children. With the Far Right sweeping to power on the hatred and fear the massacre has caused, James will become one of the most powerful men in the country. He will have fame, money, women. Everything he ever wanted.

    All he has to do is let thousands of innocent people be murdered....

    Jesus returns to his followers delight only to reveal he is really the devil and has tricked humanity into worshipping him for 2000 years and has came to chew bubblegum and claim souls. And is all out if bubblegum
