[DML] Re: DMC Movie



My thought is I'd rather see a regular type movie than a documentary 
type movie.  Most of us in the Delorean community know the history 
and story, and may want something different.  But that's not true 
for the other 99.999% of the population, who may know parts of the 
story, but alot of times get it wrong anyway.  How many times have 
you heard "those cars have GM engines in them" said with authority 
at a party when the topic comes up.  It really could work as a major 
motion picture.  Big corporate politics, drugs, high profile trial, 
the coolness of the car, movie trilogy, just alot to it.  And based 
on true events that many people may remember on some level.  Throw 
in some skin here and there, and it becomes an Oscar nominated 
film :)
