Maybe he'll hang up his butler suit and play the new Joker. Paul McCartney can play Alfred.

I'd pay to see Scott go "HIYA!," at George Lucas...I mean, who wouldn't, right?

I'd pay to see that first one.

The first one actually sounds like it would make a decent comedy.

Todd Stashwick totally nicked "Hard Day's Knight":

Scott! YOU NEED to make Hard Day's Knight!!!

I want it as I want Duke Nukem Forever!!!

Good joke with the name too! it's perfect! Paul McCartney with a sword in hand will be totally badassly awesome

Dude, "A Hard Day's Knight" sounds absolutely awesome. It must be made!

Note from Scott: I found out later something like three different screenplays with the same basic plot exist, one of which was bought by Dreamworks.

Did you ever read a story by J.R. R. Tolkien called "Farmer Giles of Ham"? The king in that is short of high-quality knights to fight the dragon, too.

On the other hand, modern Britain also has knights who are hot-shot businessmen (ladies get to be Dame, which is kind of equivalent), civil servants, and athletes. But usually they only got their knighthood when they retired from that, except for the businessman.

I suggest actually writing a book based on your first premise.
