You could be forgiven for thinking that Hollywood is starting to run out of original ideas…

“No no no,” the hypothetical suited film industry exec responds, “2019 is the age of revisionism, duh. We aren’t out of ideas!” He shouts, “We are just revising everyone’s favourite moments in film, potentially, for some reason,” wiping his brow with a wad of $100 bills.

But, when you look at The Emoji Movie, the Angry Birds movie, the Lego movies, and the endless torrents of remakes – Jumanji, The Lion King, Mulan, Aladdin, Pet Semetary, *takes breath* A Star Is Born, The Mummy, The Jungle Book – it feels like Hollywood is scraping the bottom of the pop culture barrel to come up with ideas for movies.

Rather than sitting back and complaining, here at The Brag we got productive. We came up with 10 completely original and air-tight film pitches based on Hollywood’s current practice of looking to pop culture for inspiration.

You’re welcome, Hollywood.

Trump Goes To Russia

Many people these days will be too young to remember the misadventures of Ernest. So, no one will bat an eyelid if we reprise the concept only ‘reimagining’ the role of Ernest with President Donald Trump.

Set post-Presidency, the film will follow the whacky and wonderful journey of Trump as he tries to reconnect with his old pen pal, Vladdy Putin. Trump would be played by Alec Baldwin of course, with Tilda Swinton as Putin. Hilarity ensues.
