So here's what I'm thinking. I'm thinking huge, nature-vs-man kind of thing. Kind of like Dante's Peak or Them!, but dealing with a more topical issue: Global Warming. After all, global warming won Al Gore an Oscar. And his film was shit. No special effects or nothing (unless you consider PowerPoint a special effect). Here's the pitch:
Quiet, sleepy town in middle America. Far from the problems of the big city. None of the worries of modern life. But the long fingers of global warming are creeping towards them and they suddenly find themselves overrun by a swarm of killer bees.
Except global warming has dealt them a double-whammy, and they realise they're dealing with the next evolution of killer bees.
Killer bees ON FIRE.
This needs to be made. Someone get me E. W. Swackhamer on the phone.
