I don't know if you knew this or not, but real-life supervillain Kim Jong Il imprisoned two American journalists in North Korea
and former president Bill Clinton saved the s**t out of them.
Just strolled into the country like it wasn't even a thing and walked out with a couple of lady journalists, pausing just briefly when he noticed some dirt on his shoulder that required brushing.
Now, if there's one thing Hollywood loves, it's a good biopic. If there's two
things Hollywood loves, it's a good biopic and something that Hollywood's already done before. Enter me. I am totally prepared to sell way the hell out and hand over some derivative, piece-of-s**t biopic about Clinton's ridiculous, as-of-now completely mysterious North Korean exploits, completely ready for a Christmas release. My problem, in looking over the facts, is deciding if Clinton is John McClane or James Bond.
This is honestly incredibly difficult for me to do. I have two screenplays about this situation
ready to go
but I can't tell which is more appropriate. Is Bill Clinton Bond or Die Hard
? In reviewing Clinton's story as well as both films, the similarities are staggering.
I even put together these two charts, to see where the movies and Clinton's story match up. The charts compare
