Force of Nature
A slightly unbalanced Vietnam vet chopper pilot now flying for a Hawaiin-based tour operator, and the Army brat daughter of a missing disgraced cop, stumble upon a plot to force the US government to pay ransom to a disgruntled megalomaniac who’s threatening to set off a nuclear device to cause the volcanoes beneath the islands to erupt.
We imagined it would star Jim Carrey and Geena Davis who were “hot” at the time. Geena was then married to Renny Harlin, who we hoped would direct. And we thought all this with absolutely no way to get it to those actors or that director. That’s not a really sound business plan, in hindsight.
