You know what they should make a movie out of? The story of Timon. I know Shakespeare made a play about him, but hardly anyone ever reads it. In fact, the play is so bad that scholars like to think someone else wrote it.
Timon lived in Ancient Greece. He was basically a rich party boy, who spent most of his time throwing parties with all of his friends. Eventually, he used up all of his money. He thought his friends would help him out, but they all bailed on him. He had to move out of Athens and become a farmworker.
One day, while he was working in the fields, he found a huge pot of gold that someone had buried. Timon became rich again, and he moved back to Athens. His old friends reappeared, expecting a huge party. Timon went completely postal on them.
That's a true story, even though the pot of gold part sounds like it was made up. I dunno, I just think that they could make an entertaining comedy based on that premise. Timon loses his money, becomes unexpectedly rich again, then swears revenge on all his former friends. When's the last time you've seen a good revenge comedy?
