Original Movie Storyline Ideas

Tools    





Ok basically . if you were making a movie , your own , budget not an issue , what kind of movie would it be / story line / etc



My idea
A innocent taxi driver gets blamed for a mob murder and goes to jail for 3 life sentences , only finding out that the man who got him in there is the warden / mob boss himself , and it would focus on the innocent taxi driver getting vengence on the warden.

Not to be a chump but wouldn't want to broadcast my original ideas, would be really pissed if i saw something similar in cinemas.

I just got an idea for a short film when I found a toiletry bag on my CD shelves in the living room that was originally used for toiletries, then for a camera, and now for toiletries again....the film would be about the breakup of a marriage (my parent's marriage) seen through the eyes of a toiletry bag on a shelf (that narrates the film in voice over)

Is that a silly idea or could it work?

Here is mine:


An impotent, average-looking man has a chance to get it on with a hot celebrity 'cause she is drunk and horny. He decides to "pop" the blue Viagra capsule. He thinks twice, is this right? Yes it is of course it is. Phil Collins is born and so is teen angst.

Well I've got an original screenplay in the works that i dont mind sharing. There is this cab driver, see, and he is framed for this mob murder that he didnt do. When he gets to jail he somehow finds out that it is the warden who is the reason for his frame up. The rest of the movie will be about the cabbie's revenge.

Brilliant, aint it? And to think, i thought of it all by myself!




Lost in never never land
I am tempted to put down about three that I have either written or partially written, or have the idea for and have it written in a short screenplay form, but want to make into a feature length, but until something is competed, I have to agree with Pyro.

A fifty-five year old nun has a chance to "get it on" with a twenty one year old clergyman. He is gay and has never explored this part of his life. She is horny and has never explored this side of her life. The fireworks ensue and the Catholic church is never the same again.

Yeah, dont give away ur original ideas in public kaizerdufrane. People lack morals and will just take ur idea and say its theirs. Sorry to sound so cynical but i have seen too many scum of the universe get praised and complimented over somethign that was not their idea.
Makes me sick to the bone.



how about a movie about a countries government which creates a sense of dread among its populace during a time of civil unrest, possibly by publicizing a rare or unusual disease to make it seem as though there is an impending pandemic, in order to gain complete and utter control over the people of the country who had at one time been free.



As for someone stealing a good idea in Hollywood lately, I believe you have little to fear. Their too busy shoving films through the crap factory to let that happen. And as for originality, I would just be happy if they would slow down on the "action hero saves the day" and the beloved "throw in one goofy, mildly funny character and let the antics ensue" (for all the funny parts see trailer....you know what Im talking about) movies.



Dreamed up as I went..

How about a deaf girl with 200 IQ who starts hear voices (ironic) plotting too kill her, and the girl thinks she can hear for real. But of course she can't. And so she starts too plot against everyone in her surroundings whom she thinks are the ones that will kill her. She starts too kill a couple of people.

And JUST for the sake of being controversial, let some of her victims be people of high social status.. Priest, judge, perhaps even her parents or other relatives.
And as a twist, the voices she's hearing are really radio waves from a local radio station which is on the verge of bankruptcy airing a 24/7 horror radio show knowing they'll get shut down within a matter of weeks anyway.

The radio station manager is a big horror fan and is somehow related to the girl?
He is ultimately the one to bring her down (kill her, JUST for the sake of controversy?)
He is then arrested and put on death row?

This movie could be the next friday 13th, elm st., halloween.. Each movie will have new radio waves "taking over" new "victims"..

Can't come up with a proper title but yeah.. There it is lol.



A lowly janitor with a dark past, who is haunted by a single grisly act, who is then propositioned by the head of the drug company that employs him, to test a new drug which allows the user to seemingly relive past sins and face them. The drug has the unexpected side affect of turning the user into a sociopath, who's empathy is eroded more and more after prolonged usage.

A man called Harry wakes up one morning, drives to work. He spends his 8 hours at work, working hard like he always does. Then he goes home, makes his dinner, feeds the cat, watches the TV for 2 hours and then he goes to bed and cries himself to sleep.

The movie will have no dialogue, the only sound will be the sounds of the world around him and it'll run 720 minutes......

I'm thinking Shia Lebouf would be perfect in the lead.



OK, I'll bite. How about a secret branch of the government that murders criminals (you know, like the repeat offender types). No justice system stuff, just snatched up, tortured for information, and murdered. Or maybe not the government but just some average joes looking to make the country safer. All those child molesters and low lifes that keep getting out of jail would have to watch their backs.

Another good one could be a serial killer that dresses up like the grim reaper and decapitates people in their sleep.

Or another one where with complete mayheim where everyone kills everyone.

Okay, for a episode of something like "Twillight Zone" or "Outer Limits":

Hank is a mocking-ghosthunter. He "helps" rich and gullible persons to "purify" their "haunted" places. This time the scene of event is strange - a large, natural golf course, related to a noble club. And the things that roam around there in the dark, are far too real for good old Hank.
