Movies as Inspiration

Michele mentioned the other day that Proof of Life inspired her story.

I have several stories inspired by movies, some from just a line, some from characters. I also have some pretty fun sounding ideas (they’re always fun until you start writing them, right?) that I got from movies.

There’s one from Collateral Damage, the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie that was put on hold after 9/11, about terrorists from South America. He ends up going to South America and rescuing the wife of a terrorist. I would totally change the whole twist, and no Arnold, but I think that would be a fun story to write.

Moulin Rouge is another one, only I’d make it modern day. And in Las Vegas. And give it a happy ending.

I’m breaking my own rule of three here – I can’t think of another one – and I have ideas out the wahzoo.
