I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Movie Ideas

Untitled Scavenger Hunt Film

A scavenger hunt movie, like Scavenger Hunt, only the guy who died is like a super-powered psychic who foresaw what items could be collected by any combination of strangers and lists, so he gathers together one particular group of strangers and lists in order to gather parts to some insane machine that resurrects him or does something cooler and more unexpected than resurrection.

Eve 6000

In an alternate future, the religious right gets its way and completes the transformation of the USA into a theocracy, and the first decree of the Holy 'Mercan Emperor is that since there aren't as many Eves on the planet as there are Adams there will be a lottery where certain people are forced to name their daughters Eve and things get all dystopian/1984/Anthem/Brave-New-World-ish because agreement becomes more important than liberty or whatever.

Iron Man: Behind the Mask

An action-packed Iron Man movie that takes place within Iron Man's armor and in real time where the back story and the actions of other characters are told via video feed and communications to the suit of Tony Stark who can't remember what has happened in the last 24 or 48 hours or more (he'd probably chalk it up to a heck of a hangover, but it would be revealed that it's so much more insidious than a hangover) while Iron Man is constantly threatened by enemy attack throughout the entire movie.


An Indie-type film that takes place in a small apartment, narrated from the perspective of a telepathic hanging plant and based on the true story of Narrator, the telepathic hanging plant that Fiona and I had in our Brooklyn apartment.

Higher Education

A teen movie where gossip gets so widespread and efficient in a California high school that all the students develop telepathy and then some sort of plot ensues.
