No, not THAT sort of movie star! Some people...
I want to make an action movie. It will be the action movie to end all action movies. Heroes will be the greatest heroes ever, villains will be the worst, nastiest (but somehow also the most classy) villains ever, explosions will be huge, shootouts massive and deadly, car-chases the fastest, most exciting ever made.
The hero will be rough and tough, the sort of guy that other guys want to drink with and otherwise sensible girls will happily sacrifice anything for just one night with him.
He will have a beautiful female side-kick, who is his friend but is also the only female alive who is oblivious to his charms.
The hero will have a computer whizz who coordinates everything from a remote control centre, usually only present as a voice, a pair of hands and a silhouette against a PC monitor.
The villain will be impeccably dressed at all times, an utter genius and likable in a bad-guy sort of way. His plans for world domination will be complex and minutely timetabled, yet will have holes that a 5 year old will spot 3 minutes into the movie.
He will have a beautiful female side-kick who is devoted to his every wish, but will, at the end, be unable to resist the hero and change sides, causing the villain's downfall.
The villain will employ all sorts of scum to do his dirty work. These will appear to be highly trained professional killers, but they will not be able to withstand the hero and his side-kick for long. They will also be terrible drivers...
I also want to include a few specific civilian characters.
The first will be someone (preferably female) who turns into a sort of Die Hard character, hiding out watching a hostage situation, telling the hero what is going on via cell phone. At some point a villain will corner her but she will deal with him in a wonderfully gruesome manner,probably involving stilettoes and soft body parts.
Another will be a mother who is taking her children out for the day. She has repeat encounters with the villains thugs - cut up on the road, bumped into in the street, etc. Her mood deteriorates with each encounter until, near the end of the movie she gets caught up in the car chase and totally loses it, pulling the pump action shot gun out from under her seat and blasting everything that gets close to her and her children.
So, who wants to be in my movie, and which part do you want? :-)
