Recipe for: Straight-To-Video Con Carne
2 Oscar-winning actors: Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey.
1 Well known character actor who always turns in fine work: John Heard
1 TV and movie star well known for his quiet passion: Dylon McDermott
1 rapper/actor who always turns in a terrific performance: LL Cool J
1 actor/singer who wants a "serious actor" label: Justin Timberlake
Package and market the film as the debut of Justin Timberlake (pre-Bringing Sexy Back edition), fill the movie with cliches and improbabilities, hire writers that have done mostly hour-long TV work and monkey with the name at least twice.
Give the meatiest, most interesting role to LL Cool J, and ignore the other, more accomplished ingredients.
Let sit for one year, as you contemplate a bit more how to package the movie.
Add sloppy editing, place into DVD -plastic and ship in bulk to Blockbuster.
