Michael Bay Presents THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION!!

Postby Ampoliros » 30 Apr 2012 23:38

No, before your level of horror rises, this is not a real project. Well...its not a Michael Bay project.

I've had this tooling around in my head ever since I heard Bay wanted to make the TMNT turtles into aliens instead of mutants.

That combined with the clip from Last Action Hero where the kid daydreams about an action hero playing Hamlet.

Just think of it, a summer blockbuster action-cgi fest in the theme of the American Revolution: Jet-ski's, Sub-machine guns, no reverance for actual history, this is the history uneducated "Murica" wishes was its Revolution. The only person from the revolution that is never mentioned would be Lafayette.

Arnold Schwarzenegger as George Washington: I imagine him with the powdered wig and colonial clothes, but with the sleeves ripped off. When he first retreats across the Delaware river, he turns and looks over his shoulder across the river and says "I'll be baahk"
Jason Stantham as Paul Revere
"The Rock" as Benjamin Franklin
a black actor as Thomas Jefferson, maybe Wesley Snipes.
John Adams

you get the idea.

Paul McCartney as General Cornwallis (okay probably not, but i know we could get Ringo to do it.)
otherwise Vinnie Jones

Cameos: Tom Cruise (or maybe Will Farrell) as Abraham Lincoln (no mention of him not even being alive at the time either...)

and Megan Fox as Betty Ross.

I don't think he'd play a character dressed like Hitler, but I bet he'd play Thomas Jefferson.

It needs Jason Statham, he always lends a role such gravitas.

I think Cuba Gooding Jr. would make a fine Ben Franklin, fine enough for his own sequel!
If Cuba can't do it then Seth Green is my second choice.
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Just made me think of this.
