My Stupid Idea for Con Air 2

Before the storms hit Texas a few weeks back I was reading how apparently Texas officials said they were evacuating about 4,500 inmates from three state prisons in Brazoria County south of Houston because the nearby Brazos River was rising from Hurricane Harvey’s heavy rain. Inmates from the Ramsey, Terrell, and Stringfellow Units in Rosharon were being taken by bus to other prisons in east Texas. This gave me some inspiration for a potential sequel to Con Air…

So my idea for Con Air 2: Flight Risk that would be as follows: When 4500 prison inmates are being evacuated due to an impending hurricane, a vicious drug lord and human trafficker known as Carlos “The Coyote” López has already planned his escape with his people disguised as officials delivering food and water to the displaced inmates. They attack the buses and kill many of the guards (but keeping a few as leverage) releasing thousands of prisoners upon an unsuspecting State. López has a plane waiting for him in the abandoned local airport and what authorities don’t know is that this time it isn’t just one plane… it’s all of them. He has hired several pilots to fly the convicts to freedom before the storm hits.

Casey Poe has grown up to become a prison warden who believes that anyone can be rehabilitated. She plans everything down to minute detail but when the storm of the century threatens to destroy everything she has built she’ll have to use the training her father Cameron gave her in order to survive. She is taken prisoner by López and used as leverage but Casey is nobody’s victim; she manages to radio her father Cameron Poe who never gave up getting home to his wife and daughter in 1997 and he’s not about to start now. Teaming up with Agent Vince Larkin they race against time to stop the convicts from escaping and unleashing a reign of terror the likes of which we have never seen.

How will it end? I have no clue but I like the idea of a massive battle at the airport featuring several planes exploding and general chaos kinda like the Battle in the Boneyard in the first one except during an epic storm. Only 20 odd years too late but there you go…

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it’s a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
