CGM Tsunami Alert: Snakes on a Plane

The next great word of mouth/consumer generated media story is upon us. Snakes on a Plane is the (actual) name of a forthcoming movie from New Line Cinema. From the Internet Movie Database:
Plot Outline: On board a flight over the Pacific Ocean, an assassin, bent on killing a passenger who's a witness in protective custody, lets loose a crate full of deadly snakes
The film, based on little more than the title and news that Samuel L. Jackson will start has launched an online buzz, not seen since Blair Witch Project. According to Hollywood Reporter, people have been pushing buzz for the movie, including creating songs, comics, clothes, and trailers.

The coolest part is that fans of the movie-to-be have decided that SLJ should, at some point scream the line "I want these motherf-------g snakes off the motherf-------g plane!"

The problem is that filming was already finished.

The solution was to get the stars back into the studio to shoot a bunch more scenes. Including one in which SLJ guessed it.

We're going to be telling the story of this movie for a long, long time, I think.

UPDATE: CGM-Meister Blackshaw is on the case!
