2. The Staging We want the film to be in modern times. The film will be produced in Washington D. C.
We want to modernize it by using the government we use today. It will start off showing the U. S. fighting against Iraq.
Then, certain scenes will be filmed in the White House. The vice president sees three different psychics, which all tell him that he is going to be the president of the U. S. as well as some other important information. He and his wife will kill the president so that he will become the president.
The vice president also kills a congressman because the congressman suspects the vice president of killing the president. He will hallucinate at a press conference seeing the congressman he killed.
