I have this great idea for a movie, inspired by the air traffic disruptions over Europe caused by the volcano: The setting is one year in the future. The volcano in Iceland is still erupting (the last eruption of that volcano lasted 13 months) and additional eruptions have also broken out, adding to the mess (Iceland's volcanoes are actually in the upward phase of their 50-60 year cycle - true).
We see the skies over Europe once again filled by blimps and prop-driven, low altitude aircraft. Jet airplanes are stacked out in the back fields of Europe's major airports, covered in fine volcanic ash that has been peppering down for months. In London, people are lined up at the waterfront to take water taxis out to waiting ocean lines, ready to embark across the north Atlantic to New York.
As one walks down the streets of the city, thousands of shops have gone out of business because they can't get stock by air cargo. Everything now comes in by ship, or truck, and the highway congestion across Europe is horrendous. In the supermarkets, many grocery shelves are empty, with most only having the bare necessities of basic staples. Across town, in a church, a bride cries at her wedding because there are no flowers available. London, which once was the financial hub of the world, is now one big soup kitchen. The economy had already collapsed many months earlier and the brokerages houses are empty ghost offices.
As our hero walks down the grimy street, he passes the old bank building, now just a fire gutted shell where, many months ago, police clashed with frightened and angry customers who had stormed the building demanding their savings. He notes the gray granite facade, and the now brown streaks of dried blood near the front door......
Ok, now somebody else pick up the script from here. Let's see what we can collectively come up with!
