Snakes redux

Two days have passed, and that film is still on my mind. The sequel possibilities are endless, when you think about it. Why stop with snakes on a plane? I'm working out a treatment for a screenplay now called Snakes on a Train -- more of a psychological thriller, in which two snakes meet on a train and broker a deal where each one will kill the other's wife.

I've heard rumbles about Snakes on a Greyhound. Or there's always the possibility of doing one where snakes attack a curmudgeonly old man of letters in late nineteenth century America. Yes, that's right! Wait for it -- it's Snakes on a Twain!

Oh, lordy. I kill me.

Don't forget Snakes on a Plain. Its the tender story of two snakes, driven out of Ireland by St. Patrick, who make their way to the American midwest to make a new life for themselves.
Once there, they encounter nothing but prejudice, particularly from the local magistrate who wants to see them gone. That is until they prove their worth to the community by capturing a pair of cattle rustlers.

How about "Snakes on Sir Gwain"; a timely tale about the Knights of The Round Table and how they got those nifty snakeskin cowboy boots and belts!

Or "Snakes on The Main" a movie starring Russel Crow telling about the swashbuckling antics of a courageous sea captain who inadvertently receives some snakes in the fresh produce purloined from the natives of a South American tribe. He subsequently makes and asp of himself and starts throwing telephones at the slippery bastards!

Or "Snakes On the Brain" wherein world domination is brought about by Pinky and the Brain two mice who master mind control techniques and mobilize all the fashionista snakes working in the garment trade thus 'constricting'all the 'boas'and causing serious economic chaos and upsetting everyone named Kelvin Coco or Donatella!
