Beware of the Bear...

So Ive got this idea for a movie...

A reanimated Zombie coach Bear Bryant is hired to coach in the inner city so can he whip some troubled youth into a great football team... but the catch is he has to eat some of the kids to stay alive. The PTA will vote to keep the Bear on as a coach sacrificing the band and smart kids as long as the boys win a state championship. During the state championship game at Legion Field (where the Bear became the winningest coach in college football history) the Bear storms the field at half time eating various members of the opposing team's marching band. An angry parent then shoots the Bear in the head (thats the only way to kill zombies) and then angry long time Alabama football fans kill the parent who killed the bear. Eventually after much bloodshed the referees restore order and the game continues. Zombie Bear's boys go on to win the state championship and dedicate the season to their fallen mentor... all while standing in the crimson stain of the Bear's (and many band members) blood. I think its got some potential.

I think this would capture the modern South in the same way Gone With the Wind captured the Civil War South...go for it, it has Oscar written all over it. I see Gary Busey as the Zombie and Jodie Foster as the mom who shoots the Bear. (Brian)

All I know is that zombie looks good in a houndstooth hat.

Brian... in the words of another famous southerner Gomer Pile (Jim Neighbors) "Don't it though." and thanks for the casting input. Gary Busey probably has experience eating children.

Amanda... most everyone looks good in houndstooth print. if you doubt it just search "houndstooth" in a google image search.

Gene... thanks man, and press on through the pain of chaffing.

Jeff... it surely would be
