This week on The Fix we talked, among other things, about movie crossovers. There are rumors that Universal wants a Fast & Furious / Jurassic World crossover movie. Anyone who has watched some of the later F&F movies knows that literally no plot line is off the table, nothing is too crazy.
I personally think that, depending on the exact plot line of FF9 (which I haven’t seen yet) the next step up will depend on how far they actually go into space. Do they land on the moon, or just skim the edge? If FF9 doesn’t land The Family on the moon, that’s gonna be in FF10 somewhere. If they do land on the moon, The Family is going to Mars in FF10. Or traveling through time. Lots of time travel story lines around right now.
Speaking of time travel, that is the theme of one of our new homegrown crossover ideas.
Army of the Dead (listen to today’s show to hear about the time loop theory) / Tenet
Classic right? Time traveling zombies! Rather than the described future disaster of Tenet, it’s actually a zombie apocalypse. Zombies that can use their fancy blue virus to travel through time on their own and humanity has reverse engineered that ability to combat them. Yes, it sounds a bit like the entire premise of Terminator when I write it out, but there are no original ideas left anyway.
The second idea is so obvious I’m sad I didn’t think it up on-air. But that’s partly the point of this new website right!
Fast & Furious / Transformers
I mean come on! Transformers already has cars that do crazy stuff, add in some Family and it’s off to the (drag) races. Does Dom trust Optimus, or are they butting heads? The villainous conflict could be anyone from Megatron to Doms’ clone to Godzilla. No extra thought required. Throw a little time travel hinting for FF/T 2 and it writes itself.
Got another classic crossover idea you want to be able to hold credit for when it inevitably comes true? Hit up the comment section!
