Yeah, Fan. Was aware of that.

I liked kj's suggestion because the subject is small enough to be of budgetary interest. And the story itself needs no invention. The cast needn't be large and none need box-office importance. Only one scene (hopefully a lengthy one) requires extras, and those extras would be re-enactors who would cheerfully absorb their own expenses just to be in the movie. (Well, maybe they'd expect lunch.)

There'd be the situation, the idea, the proposal, the selling of the proposal, the digging and the inherent engineering problems, the decision to replace the USCT strike-force with untrained strike-troops, some gratifyingly carnage, and fade to a scroll with the statistics.

Not a multi-million dollar epic, but I'd pay to see it and buy the dvd.
