Like for instance me being able to slap Hugh Jackman over the head ala Gibbs from NCIS.
Or meeting Mary-Louise Parker (sigh!)But some ideas are so strong that they have to be shouted from the roof tops. This is just one of them.
Yep thats right I want to finally get to this TV gem and scrape the TV to movie bucket clean of what its got left. I can hear you scream Noooooooo! But please wait for my pitch.
Hogan's Heroes the movie won't be called Hogan's Heroes but STALAG 13 and it will be grim and gritty. Hogan is a womanising con-man full of himself, he doesn't care about anything but scamming the limeys and getting laid. Unfortunately he goes too far bedding the wife of a superior officer. Hogan has two options gaol or join a secret plot to undermine the German war effort inside Germany.
Colonel Whilhem Klink is a decorated Luftwaffe piolt who has been punished because of his families connection with Jewery. This has him shipped off not to the Russian front but to command a prisoner of war camp. Klink is of the Prussian nobility and considers the NAZI's as userpers.
Hogan and his team are dropped into Germany and meet up with the underground, they try a few jobs but are cosnstatly thwarted. Their hideout is radied and only a handfull escape. Hogan comes up with the plan that they should break into a POW camp.
Things start off badly as they are treated horribly by the camp guards, but they are able to support the underground from the realtive safety of the POW camp. Klink works it out but turns a blind eye because he can't stand the NAZI's.
Okay thats about as far as I've gotten in my thinking and thats usually as far as these thoughts go. But I want to expand on this and go further, doing some casting and a bit more plot development. So hang around this idea might sporut wings and fly. Of course you can all help too. Comment on your ideas.
