YOU KNOW ITS COMING SO PITCH YOUR TRUMP MOVIE NOW! Why wait?

Oliver Stone is standing byÖ

Almost every President inspires a movie such as:
1. NIXON Ė NIXON (1995) director Oliver Stone
2. NIXON - ALL THE PRESIDENTíS MEN (Hoffman & Redford)
3. KENNEDY Ė JFK (1991) director Oliver Stone
4. CLINTON - PRIMARY COLORS (1998)
5. BUSH 2 Ė W (2008) director O. Stone
6. BUSH 2 - IDIOCRACY (2006)?
***********************
For example ---

UNPRESIDENTED

Logline: When Jared Kushner unexpectedly leaves Ivanka to marry Ted Cruz, the impact devastates Donald Trump, who leaves all his empire, via a last will and tweet, to Sean Spicer on the condition he get a sex change and revive MIKE AND MOLLY. Crazed, Trump dashes outside, attempting to shoot random people in Times Square, in a mad quest to finally complete at least one campaign promise, before heís tragically gunned down by Ted Nugent, mistakenly thinking Trumpís hair hides an evil giant orange possum named Andy.

or

LINE OF SUCCESSION (AKA SHARKNADO 46))

Logline: After Donald Trump is impeached and a plane carrying Paul Ryan, Rex Tillerson, Steve Mnuchin, James Mattis and the zombie formerly known as Orin Hatch crash-lands in the Rockies during a combo tornado/hurricane/blizzard/tidal wave [definitely not the result of climate warming!], leaving the Hatch-thing as the only survivor. But when itís learned HOW he survived (eating the others, and a also surprisingly rare Rocky Mountain shark, alive - think of the special effects!), Jeff Sessions begins his ill-fated two week presidency only for it to be discovered heís been the secret head of the KKK since 1964, spurring the House to finally vote to impeach him when the Freedom caucus decides he isnít sufficiently racist.

2. It Won't Be A Movie...

Too much already out there. It'll have to be a miniseries at the very least.

4. I got it. A serious, thoughtful drama about Trump. Please read this.

At first I imagined something like "Frost/Nixon". Covering a small and specific event.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0870111/

But then I had to think of the drama "The Downfall", about the last days of Hitler and the Third Reich. Told from the perspective of his secretary. And then it hit me:




Plot:

The movie is told from the viewpoint of a low-level WH-aide. It covers approx. 1 week or 1 month. Trump himself is a minor character with little screen-time.

The movie starts out with Trump in a bad situation, because of some scandals. Over the course of the movie, we see him as an irrate, borderline-dement old man who thinks that everybody is out to get him.
In reality, what brings him down is his incompetence, his inability to stop believing his own lies, and the infighting of his aides.

The movie would be about these aides.
We get backstabbing,
we get leaks,
we get dysfunction,
we get shout-matches between Priebus and Bannon behind closed doors,
we get WH-aides slipping Breitbart conspiracy-theories onto his desk,
we get WH-aides exchanging tips how to babysit Trump,
we are living in a perpetual crisis,
we get non-stop drama about how to spin the latest scandal,
we get the permanent tension of working for a boss who lies on a whim and does not care about sabotaging the hard work YOU are putting in for HIM.

Plus a sub-plot how his marriage has grown cold and distant. He treats his wife like a political prop and in return she despises his touch. We see the deathly stares she's giving him... and he's so self-centered he doesn't even realize that she doesn't love him anymore. He's too occupied with his power-plays and vendettas to notice her revulsion.

The movie ends just like it began. Scandals, spin, scheming, drama, perpetual crisis. The only difference is that Trump has sunk a little bit lower into madness and self-inflicted isolation.

5. OK, it's animated and all the characters are played by fruit

Trump is of course the orange.
