Movie Idea

I think I'm going to start pitching movie ideas to studios. Here's one:

The plot is that Stephen Baldwin, (playing himself, but reprising his role in Biodome) wins a round-the-world scavenger hunt on the Oprah Winfrey Show. However, the contest has been rigged by Dr. Phil in order for Oprah to rid herself of the Baldwin family for all the trouble they've caused her over the years (a stark departure from reality, where Oprah often has trouble remembering who the Baldwins even are) by sending her agents to take care of them on the trip.

Stephen travels through various real-world locations collecting items, with occasional cameos from the other Baldwin family members. Each of the movie's locales feature assassins who are distant relatives of Oprah (Fu Manchu Oprah, the Abominable Snow Oprah, Leif Winfreyson, Rhamses Tut Oprah, Arnold Schwarzenoprah).

Ultimately, Stephen returns to Oprah's studio in New York City significantly powered up. He, along with his brothers and friend John Candy, (played by John Madden) attempt to overpower Oprah. However, they are all violently mutilated when Bono brings an army African villagers and Tibetan monks to lay waste to the entire city of New York a la Cloverfield.

I think that with the right edits, this clip would make for a great trailer:
