The city is willing to implode Reunion Arena, but only if some film company will foot the bill in exchange for getting to do it and, of course, film it. Janis Burkland, the Dallas Film Commission director, has a genius idea: up the on-camera ante, and make Texas Stadium a pile of rubble, too.
Here is why I love it: 1) nothing beats a good implosion, and 2) nothing beats a movie featuring a heaping helping of kaboom at around midnight on a random Tuesday. (I was clicking around the other night, saw that Speed was only five minutes out of the blocks, and I no longer needed the remote.) So let’s hear some high concept movie pitches in the comments.
I’ll kick it off: A young, earnest, impossibly handsome, possibly bearded politician gets unceremoniously booted from the campaign trail because of a technicality. To get back at the city that wronged him, he goes on a bombing spree. The only man who can stop him is his one-time mentor, an eccentric former billionaire who now works as a janitor at the new convention center hotel–the location of the final bomb.
