Apocalypse Moby

What happens when you mashup Moby Dick and Apocalypse Now? You get a movie script by Perry Hall, available in its entirety in a .pdf.

Blood and thunder! Mobys gone off the reservation-- he's swimming and fighting out there, General, answering to no one but himself. An albino daemon! He's collected his own army from the native rank and is running completely amok. He must be stopped!


This overbearingly grim man, Ahab, was roughly of sixty years; bronzed, weathered like an ancient tree, his form suggested a man released from a burning stake just before its fire could fully engulf him. The mad glint in his eye began a tale; the barbaric white leg upon which he partly stood-- which had been fashioned from the polished bone from a sperm whale’s jaw-- completed it.


Captain Ishmael, this be General Ahab. Ahab has... encountered Moby in the field, or should I say, upon the waters. He be an expert on our renegade Colonel.

We can assume that the part of Ishmael should be played by a young Martin Sheen, and it won't be the first time Marlon Brando has been likened to a white whale. Link -via Metafilter
