Someone Make the Movie

I’m not going to pretend that I understand what’s going on in Dubai in terms of debt and economic collapse, or what its relation is to the world’s economy.

What I do know is that I’m picturing this Las Vegas of the Middle East, another strange desert creation out of nothing, as a ghost town. Like Will Smith in an empty New York City before those weird aliens show up or Cillian Murphy in an empty London before those weird zombies show up, I want to see some too-attractive actor (or hell, it’s the Middle East, so let’s add a gender complication and make it a too-attractive actress) wandering around the former lavishness of a desolate Dubai, wondering where the hell all the rich people (and the underclass that serves them) are at.

And then the desert weasels show up.

Someone get Jerry Bruckheimer on the horn!
