Let me start off by saying that I was able to attend the N.A. premiere of “Fast Five” last night and it was an awesome, action-packed, all-out crazy, fun ride of a movie and you deserve all the success and kudos you get.
But I think that we need to start sending out a more conscientious message to movie-going kids today. So here’s my suggestion for “Fast 6”. How about electric car racing? After all, we really need to save the environment and stop our dependence on Middle East oil.
I know I know. The cars will be Not So Fast and Not So Furious. The movie could be called “Green and Somewhat Angry”. Instead of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, it could star Ed Begley Junior and Tom Hanks in the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt.
Sung can still look suave on a bicycle:
Sure, they won’t be able to make a lot of noise revving their motors. But you could just show them cranking up their bad-ass, custom, electric generators and as the silence ensues, cue the music to “Flight of the Bumblebee”?
So the Leaf’s top speed is 90 mph while the Volt’s is 100, and well, the Leaf only has a range of about 70-miles so the chase scenes can’t be too fast or too long, but I’m sure you can work it out.
Am I on to something? Have your people call my people.
