All the founding fathers were vampires. They fought the American Revolution using armies of undead vampire zombie slaves. This film is to be a period piece, describing the origin and rise to power of the vampire presidents.
Perhaps the vampire presidents are still alive?
Do they walk among us?
Do they control the U.S. from behind the scenes?
Was perhaps one (or more) of the founding fathers a vampire hunter?
Or were the Brits secretly leading an anti-vampire war?
Perhaps that is why people fled the UK for America.
What other historical events could be interpreted in this new light? The Civil War? World War I or II?

The Greatest Adventure of Abraham Lincoln

“The Greatest Adventure of Abraham Lincoln” — a historical fantasy, somewhat like National Treasure / Indiana Jones.

 

 Script outline by M. Jenkins, 2006

 

 A setting very much like the old Snell house and Bird Island in Coffeepot Bayou, St. Petersburg, Florida. The house is Renaissance-styled, architecturally. Warm colors: oranges and golds, sandy yellows. Two or three stories tall, high ceilings. Interior very baroque. Like Versailles. Marble floors. There is a second, stand-alone house out on the island. Same style, but much smaller. It is essentially ignored — treated like a playhouse, or  guest house, or a Victorian ‘folly‘ (fake ruins). 

 

Our heros have some kind of large key / medallion / stone object thingy. That must be placed in a cavity, where certain upward-facing pins will be pressed down or left up by the designs on the face of the medallion. Think of one of those metal pin thingies, that you can press your face into. Instead of having enclosed tumblers in a single row (like a normal lock & key), this is a grid of tumblers facing up, open to the viewer. A sort of 2D barcode of pits & peaks is the ‘key’, which would be pressed down onto the the tumblers, which would then allow you to turn the whole mechanism and release the lock / bolt / whatever. That would start a chain reaction of progressively larger mechanisms unlocking, revealing an opening to a stairway / tunnel leading out to underneath the ‘guest house’. 

 

There they find a great open space underground, filled with weird objects (like National Treasure / various Hellboy settings). This is a high class, high grade, 19th century, secure storage facility. Among it’s users were the Freemasons, various other secret societies, the rich and eccentric, etc. Contents: physical objects, ranging from car-sized to fist-sized, and many shelves filled with books & papers and filing cabinets lining the periphery.

 

 Specific contents: a giant human skull with pointed teeth, tall as a man (wearing the tattered remains of a Mayan headdress). Some weird standing mummies (Hellboy-esque), golden sculptures, ancient to renaissance. A very early photograph — of a fort in a desert location, constructed from fossilized dinosaur bones (very large), stacked log-cabin style. The layout is a pointy star design like most 15-to-18XX forts. An early photograph of a small village carved into a giant fossil whale (or something) in a cliff face — Anasazi-like.

 

 In the center of the chamber, a single glass-topped casket, with the embalmed and mummifed body of Abraham Lincoln. Died 1901. Beside the casket, on a small table, are a few important personal items — memoirs of fantastic and secret adventures. A sketch by Lincoln of the relative sizes of the Earth and moon. Early photo of the surface of the moon, with tiny Earth above the horizon. The surface is rough and mountainous, with jagged peaks on the right. There are some oddly garbed, tiny figures in the foreground…

Script outline by M. Jenkins, May 2009.

While on vacation in Australia, an American tourist witnesses a mass murder comitted by the Australian mafia.

After calling the local police, he is escorted to the US Consulate in Sydney, where he is handed over to US Marshal Samuel L. Jackson, for safe transport to the capital, Canberra, where he must testify against a powerful Aussie mob boss in front of the Australian Supreme Court.

Unfortunately, the first available flight from Sydney to Canberra is a converted cargo plane —an aircraft converted to haul pressurized tanks of live sea animals to distant aquariums. Her final destination is Japan, and her cargo is one hundred live native Australian sharks, including one Great White!

The Australian mafia plants men on the plane, and plan to release the sharks in mid-flight in order to kill the witness — and anyone who gets in their way!

Only US Federal Marshal Samuel L. Jackson can stop these —

SHARKS ON A PLANE!
