United States v. Vampire Nation: The Movie

So, here are my casting ideas for the two lead roles.

As the renegade cop/fighter pilot/vampire slayer who heads the U.S. resistance to the vampire invasion: Will Smith, of course.

As the king of the Vampire Nation: Hrithik Roshan.

The film will be like Dhoom 2 in that Hrithik will nominally be the bad guy but will really be totally awesome. (And he'll make an infinitely better-looking vampire than that other dude in that one film). Then in the end it'll turn to all have been a big misunderstanding between the United States and the Vampire Nation, and he and Will Smith will ride off on a motorcycle singing "Yeh Dosti" together.

Yep, this movie will be fabulous.

I have no idea what you're talking about, but I agree that Hrithik should play that role FO SHO.

This was mentioned in my prior blog post, but US v. Vampire Nation is a case name that I came across in a brief and thought would make a great movie title. I always think of Will Smith when I think of heroes defending the United States against supernatural invaders. And then, Hrithik seemed like a great choice for the king of the Vampire Nation. I'm glad you agree.

I think it's safe to say you've got a little crush on this Hrithik Roshan character.

Your posts make me want to be a bollywood fan. Any recommendations for a start?

Adam -- He's not one of my top favorites, but he's pretty darn awesome. And incredibly attractive. Watch Dhoom 2 if you don't believe me.

Elizabeth -- You totally should watch a Bollywood film! One of my favorites is Jab We Met. It's a cute and fun romantic comedy. I really love it.

A lot of people really like Lagaan, and it's one of the few that you might be able to find at Blockbuster or some place like that, since it was nominated for an Oscar in 2001. It's not one of my absolute favorites, but it's a pretty good film. Bollywood films don't have defined genres like Western films, but Lagaan is basically a sports underdog story, set in colonial India.

Another film that is often recommended for newbies is Dil Chahta Hai. I think it's got a more understated and Western vibe than your average Bollywood film, which may make it more approachable for someone used to Hollywood-style acting and film-making.

So, there are some ideas for a start. Let me know if you want any other ideas or recommendations. I'm always happy to encourage others in Bollywood-watching.

I thought this was going to be a review of Twilight or something. I think your movie would be quite entertaining though.

Cindy said...

Yeah, I haven't seen Twilight, and I'm not really planning on it either. I might be somewhat more tempted if Robert Pattinson didn't look so darn skeevy.
