Michael Bay Little America Donald Trump

Donald Trump may have only assumed the office of the President of the United States less than a week ago, but there are already several Trump-influenced entertainment projects on the drawing board, the latest of which is LITTLE AMERICA, a futuristic adventure movie which Michael Bay will be producing.

THR reports that Universal Pictures have won a "heated bidding war" to snag the rights to LITTLE AMERICA. The upcoming project is being described as a "sci-fun" story rather than "sci-fi" (huh?) and takes place in a "dystopian future where a Donald Trump-like president has bankrupt America and China has called in its debts. The Asian giant now owns America and many Americans have immigrated to China looking for work." The tone is said to be inspired by John Carpenter's ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK as it centers on a former American Force Recon member who is hired by a Chinese billionaire to infiltrate an American ghetto and rescue his daughter. The spec script was written by Rowan Athale (WASTELAND), who is also attached to direct, and will be produced by Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes.

As for Michael Bay, his next project will be the fifth installment of the TRANSFORMERS franchise, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, which is set for a June 23, 2017 release.

If this ends Bay's run with those awful Transformer movies...

....I'm all for it. Otherwise this sounds like Trumploitation crap.

BTW...I just came up with Trumploitation. Any further use of this phrase and I expect residuals.

Trumploitation crap? Or realistic future for America? Based on the estimated cost of that wall and no plan for reimbursement from Mexico, I'd guess the latter.

Btw, check is in the mail for use of "trumploitation".

Trouble is the plot itself about an ex-soldier sent to rescue a daughter sounds like one of thousands of direct to video films that tried to copy Escape From New York. But add an anti- Trump gimmick and Hollywood thinks all the protestors will put down their signs to go see it.

Its a shame they could just do a decent remake of the real thing...or better yet, leave one of my all-time favorite movies alone in it's splendor.
