James Cameron to direct David Cameron’s vanity project: Iraq 2: This Time It’s Syria…in 3D
Hollywood was buzzing last night at the announcement that the British government will be funding James Cameron’s next blockbuster war movie. Prime Minister David Cameron announced the plan to widespread acclaim, as he hasn’t really done very much for the arts before.
We caught up with the Prime Minister, who seemed extremely excited to be an executive producer: ‘I’d say I’m very excited about this opportunity. I loved Blair in Iraq I: Oil Always Love You, and I just thought the franchise was screaming out for a sequel. I know it’s in Syria, a different location, but really isn’t the Middle East all rather samey to you? I mean Syria’s big, it’s messy, it’s dramatic – it’s the perfect spot for this project. And when I told my cousin James about the idea, well he thought it sounded marvellous, and wanted to do it in 3D. So we got to work’
When asked about claims that shooting, (at first he said no just air strikes for now, before realising we meant shooting the movie) the film could cost up to £500,000 a day, David Cameron – or ‘Director Cool-man’ as he said he preferred to be called nowadays, just said this:
‘Trust me dude. It’ll be totally worth it. James said he’s got Tom Cruise and Sandra Bullock on board, the whole nine yards. Iraq 1 was a blowout, and I expect This Time It’s Syria to be totally epic as well. Seriously, bigger than Titanic and even better special effects…you’re gonna love it. I even made sure Boris didn’t have anything to do with the title, he wanted to call it ‘Shooty Shooty Bang Bang Boom’, Which just lacks tact if you ask me. ‘Iraq 2: This time its Syria’, is far better, and what a pun if I don’t say so myself.”
