Movie Pitches

ALIEN 1492 [science fiction / horror / historical costume drama]

A re-imagining of the voyages of Christopher Columbus, with the Santa Maria standing in for the commercial towing vehicle The Nostromo, and the Caribbean island of Hispaniola standing in for the unsurveyed moon LV-246. A certain spunky stowaway calling herself Helena Ripley seems to really be Queen Isabella herself.

The ships have been sent on a voyage of exploration and exploitation by a cynical government that may not be telling the full story to the crew. After a strange encounter on land, the crew sails for Spain and home. Imagine the horror as late-15th-century Spanish sailors encounter a hideous alien threat lurking on their small three-masted ships.

On the way to the Indies, no one can hear you scream.

Alternative tagline:
It's like "Alien" and "The Serpent and the Rainbow" and "1492" are forced to share a taxi!

ILLEGAL ALIEN [science-fiction / action]

A scandal erupts when a congressman is found to have an undocumented alien as a housekeeper. Not that sort of alien however, and another clone of Lt Ellen Ripley needs to be animated from the Tleilaxu axlotl tanks to take care of it.
