First of all, I want to express my sorrow to the dead and injured from the bombs that went off at the marathon, and those otherwise injured in pursuit of the two chechnyn brothers. I have high praise for the police and medical units who acted and saved lives. As many creative people know, most creativity comes from observing what happens around us. Its; very common for big events in our culture to end up on a screen, be that the television, or in a theatre. Some will first be formed as books, then plays of collected vignettes. There were many filmed portrayals of 9/11, and years later of (what we have been asked to accept as) the night Osama Bin Laden was caught, killed and disposed of, all this done to OBL body with remarkable rapidity, before the next crack of dawn! We just made a big dollar hit movie out of Lincoln.
So who is going to write, produce, star in this film about the Boston Marathon Bombings? There is so much material, it almost demands production. For many citizens of Boston, it will be known as Hell Week. They share the public memory of that first day, the shock of the bombing and it's gruesome destruction, They will recall the days of Boston on Lockdown as slow and eerily quiet, The memories will conclude with the blizzard of gunfire, carjacking, car used as a battering ram, followed by more quiet, ending in a hiding place, the boat that almost became his coffin. The will recall the media guessing games, trying to be first, trying to be 'fair'. If Mel Gibson is momentarily clear of mind and able to work with people, he could do a good portrayal.
Derrick Jeter and Patrick Dempsey
Jane Fonda will play the grand-mother-in-law of the older brother.
It hasn’t even been one week.
This is far too early for this sort of discussion.
They’re Slovaks, not Czechs, nor Chechens.
He’d be perfect at the end if only he had a large incision is the left side of his chest.
Sean Penn will play em both. He’s a krazy azz Jekyl and Hyde.

My first draft of the screenplay should be finished soon. It’s not too difficult to drop dialogue and action lines into the Islamic terrorism template. But the challenge is to make it different from all other acts of terrorism, for the sake of perceived originality. Who’ll produce it? Likely no one in liberal, Islam-loving Hollywood.
Ellen Degenerate and Rosie O’donnell. Barbra Streisand can play the mother.
I am sure Obama will play Obama in the movie. He is a natural for it, acting the part of an actor.
As long as Meg Ryan (sober!) plays me, I’m cool...
Shia LaBeouf can play the older bomber.
Omar Sharif as the Mad Uncle....
Jaysus! That freaks me OUT, LOL!
Bill Ayers & Bernadine Dorn, with Robert Redford as director — “The Chechens You Keep”
Adrian Grenier [Entourage] as one of the brothers ...
Chris Matthews will play the spokesman for the Council of Patriotic Jihadists.
Do you think Hollywood thinks it’s too early to have this discussion?
Ben Affleck will play the older brother, bank on it. He’ll produce it. too.
They’ll show W and Cheney personally torturing the boys years ago, and show that’s what turned them into terrorists.
I don’t believe Freepers should conduct themselves in accordance with what Hollywood finds acceptable.
Your mileage may vary.
Well, if they hold off a couple years, Zero will be out of a job and he can play the older brother. You know how much he loves being on TV.
I don’t think it is about what Hollywood finds acceptable. It seems to be more about dealing with reality as it actually exists.
Morgan Freeman will be the president, the bombers will be played by people way to old for the part.
And of course the girl friends will be played by sympathetic blond bimbos.
The family members will be played by people who appear to be the cause, and the bombers are really not all that bad, just confused.
Colonel Sanders will provide the 500,000 chickens to play the part of the Boston people hiding under their beds on Friday.
Borat plays the squished brother
He’s an apparently unusal idea.
Make the movie about the victims.
Have you seen the Hasselhoff version?
You think *that* is freaky.
You’re old, too. Ain’t it great!! I love being eccentric.
I think it’s a little too soon to be speculating on something as stupid as this.
Don’t be Hasselhoffin’ ME! (Seriously. Please. Don’t. LOL!)
The friggin’ thing gives me vertigo, frankly.
And Anthony Hopkins, reviving his role as Hannibal Lector, as the father.
Oprah Winfrey as Michelle Obama.
Ben Affleck will play the older brother, bank on it. Hell produce it. too.
Holy cow! That would be incredible. If he does as well as he did doing Argo, it would be a great movie. You made a great choice!!!!
