An adaptation of "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt that plays as dark comedy. The first-person narrator is revealed to be unreliable, and is actually a self-obsessed blowhard. We lose the incest, play Bunny for maximum laughs, make Henry more likeable, and voila! A morality play about the dangers of being a pseudo-intellectual twat.

PVC: I love the Rickles idea ! J-Lo, Affleck, great choice for the couple we'd most like to see beaten to death with a bat (fallback choices: Liza-David Gest, Nic Cage-Lisa Marie, Jane Fonda and whoever), but nix to such a downbeat score... Can't we go with "Bang on the Drum all day" by Todd Rundgren ? People will leave the theater in a peppy mood ! Otherwise I greenlight this idea, have your people talk to my people, 3.5 mill is the highest I could possibly go and I'd like to open in Venice just because the hookers there are so cute.

Coke vs Pepsi: the movie. I mentioned this in another thread on ILE. It MUST be made.

amend Diner starring ILX to Diner starring DMX and you'd have me at "Hello, you weak bitches."

That reminds me of the (brilliant IMHO) idea that Tracer Hand had on one of the ILE Umbrellas of Cherbourg threads about doing a hip hop remake, with Usher as the diamond dealer.
