We get a lot of e-mail pitches through this site and we thought it might be fun to start a "Pitch" thread here. So let's hear those movie ideas. If you're worried about idea theft, your registration and date submitted will serve as sufficient copyright protection.

Here's a sample of a pitch Manka Bros. bought recently through a submission to the site:

SHOTGUN LUKE by Zimmer Gerrard. Story of Shotgun Luke, a no-name stranger who rides across the desert in search of the man who kidnapped his family, sold them to a hustler, who rented them to a killer, who killed them and sold their dog.

We're viewing this as a potential franchise and the story is currently out to screenwriters.

So, let's hear it. Give us your best pitch.

"Cutting Joe" - a depression-era drama about a normal, out-of-work guy with a starving family disfigures himself when a job opens up at a local freak show.

It's got Oscar written all over it.

i got your idea. Gang of wheelchair kids led by Stephen Hawking terrorizes old folks communities. they roll around pushing them off their walkers and replacing their oxygen tanks with NO2. Replace regular sponges used in baths with loufas. OUCH. Then we get a old time super hero, like Clint Eastwood to come into town and clean up the young punks. BUT, he's only got one leg. With the mastery of a samurai he uses his crutch to break the arms and glasses of the gang. The oldies win and Clint gets a load of Granny poon. Yer Daddy awaits his check.

I wrote story when I was a kid about an 18 wheel truck that delivered beer to other planets. It was some kind of magical space truck and the trucker listened to country music and interacted with a bunch of aliens and stuff. I'm not sure if there's a movie there but it was funny when I was kid.

Yeah, it's possible she leaves with the winner. Winning bands need groupies. I realize this ending sort of short changes the story of the woman - but it brings home what is really important - ROCK AND ROLL.

A robot murderer is sentenced to die in the Florida electric chair. The electric chair is unable to kill the robot. The judge says the punishment was served and sets him free to go and resume his killing ways. Still looking for a title. But I'm available to start writing it next week.
