Development Pitch

A brilliant Arab playboy, backed by a shadowy organization of middle eastern millionaires, concocts a plan to attribute a series of horrific terrorist attacks in the U.S. to North Korea. He envisions retaliation by the U.S., resulting in an all-out nuclear slugfest, which would include Russia and China. A 21st-century Caliphate would emerge from the ashes of this exchange, subjugate or destroy the surviving infidels, and establish its Caliph as the undisputed ruler of the planet. After the first attack, upon the direction of the POTUS, the U.S. State Department devises a radical strategy that will placate Russia and China, contain the conflict, and restore what remains of North Korea once the dust settles. These forces run parallel until they intersect at an all too plausible, explosive conclusion.
