NEW HOLLYWOOD POST-APOCALYPSE THRILLER CANCELLED AS CURRENT UK SITUATION MAKES IT LOOK 'QUITE NICE’
A new Hollywood blockbuster due for release next month has been cancelled after its dystopian depiction of the future looks quite rosy compared to the current state of the UK.
“There’s months of work and millions of dollars up in smoke,” said Hollywood producer Max Felch.
"We've spent millions on CGI and special effects to bring to life our vision of what the world could look like after a seismic disaster and subsequent collapse of modern civilisation but the Brits have beaten us to it. If we’d just hung on a couple of months we could have shot the UK this last week for free.”
“Our top screenwriters could never have come up with villains like Michael Gove and Nigel Farage. They’re the stuff of fantasy. And we spent millions constructing the set of a burned-out ruined town, with its people surviving on nothing in rags. It never crossed our minds we could have shot it on location in Rotherham”
The UK has been in unprecedented turmoil for the last week following the referendum vote with political upheaval and a spike in hate crimes throughout the country which mirrors a Hollywood plot.
“Our plot is based on one man’s soulless and violent odyssey through a much changed and unforgiving world which ultimately ends in tragedy. We should have just shot the Boris Johnson story. Our picture explores what people do when hope dies, we had to imagine real hard what that was like and what it does to people when we could have just had a week’s vacation in London and saved ourselves the trouble.”
“Although if Boris is looking for a new job after deciding not to run, we need a Donald Trump stunt double for the fight scenes on our new political drama.”
