4. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE
Director: Brian DePalma
Stars: Tom Cruise, Sandra Bullock, Meg Ryan, Mira Sorvino, Alicia Silverstone, etc.
Release Date: May 22, 1996
The original plot had the old "Impossible Missions" Team coming together one last time to track down a group of international nuclear terrorists threatening to blow up New York, Washington, London, Paris, Moscow, Berlin, Cairo, Mexico City, and Tokyo -- all at the same time.
The revised script calls for the team to use ultra-high-tech VR-AI cable-phonesex headgear devices to track down a pair of skinhead NAMBLA MENSA scientologist gynecologists threatening to spam comp.infosystems.www with ads for product spin-offs from G-rated kickboxer drug/sex/rock 'n roll films, like "Amok! With Tom."
The climactic scene from the original version -- a rousing cruise missile chase through the streets of downtown Salt Lake City -- will still be used for the climactic scene of this version, even though it bears absolutely no relation whatsoever to the new storyline.
NAMBLA, MENSA, the AMA, The American Scientological Association, and the Union of Concerned Kickboxer-Drugdealers all tried to physically disrupt production, forcing the film to be shot entirely on location in an armored broom closet underneath the Bonneville Salt Flats.
