Hollywood, struggling to make any movie that is profitable, has decided to go back to the future, no pun intended.
An unnamed source leaked to CNN the script of a new version of the 1964 Stanley Kubrick film “Dr. Strangelove” or “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” Dr. Strangelove is being filmed at an undisclosed location in Chicago. This same unnamed source noted that the film will be released on November 8th, 2017, the first anniversary of President Trump’s election, under the title “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love North Korea’s Bombs.”
The film is being marketed as anti-Trump. It will feature Hillary Clinton as U.S. President Merkin Muffley, Group Captain Lionel Mandrake of the RAF and Dr. Strangelove, former President Barack Obama will appear as Lt. Lothar Zogg, the B-1B navigator and Susan Rice in the role of Brigadier General Jack Ripper.
The film will be about what could happen if the wrong person (one of President Trump’s generals) pushed the wrong button. U.S. Air Force General Jack Ripper (played by the gender neutral Susan Rice dressed as a man), goes completely insane, and sends his/her/its bomber wing to destroy North Korea.
The Ripper (Rice) thinks that the Russians stole the 2016 election and are conspiring to pollute the “precious bodily fluids” of the Democrat Party making them impotent. Ripper (Rice) takes President Trump’s “locked and loaded” comment to heart and decides to pull the trigger her/him/itself.
The the roles of Major T. J. “King” Kong, General Buck Turgidson, a jingoist USAF general, Colonel Bat Guano, Soviet Ambassador Alexei de Sadeski, Miss Scott, General Turgidson’s secretary and mistress, and Capt. Ace Owens, the B-1B co-pilot have yet to be announced. The unnamed source believes/suggests/thinks roles have been offered to Anthony Weiner (jingoist General Buck Turgidson), Vladimir Putin (Ambassador Sadeski), Chelsea Manning (Turgidson’s mistress) and Bernie Sanders (Capt. Ace Owens) .
Hollywood is looking to revive its mojo in this summer of discontent, also know as “the resistance.”
Box office sales are way down because Hollywood’s audience, made up of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Organizing for Action and Democrats, is busy protesting the November 2016 election.
Dr. Strangelove will be billed as the biggest upset in Hollywood history since November 8, 2016.
