Coming Soon to a Theater Near You! ( don't hold your breath)

Well, this certainly will be a tough sell for their P.R. people :

Director To Explore Suicide Bombers Mind

By Krittivas Mukherjee

MUMBAI, India (Reuters) - A Bollywood director plans to make a film inspired in part by July's London bombings that will explore the story of a would-be suicide bomber struggling to reconcile the message of radical Islam with an appetite for life.

Mahesh Bhatt's Suicide Bomber, to be set in Britain and India, will also seek to spread the message that Islam is a religion of peace, mercy and forgiveness, the leading director told Reuters on Wednesday. (and failing that, blowing folks and stuff up. It is an effective proselytizing technique, however- I know I truly wanted to embrace Luthernism after that bunch of hard-core, radical Luthern extemists burned my barn down!)

"Muslims are demonized by the western nations especially after the so-called war on terror. The gulf between Muslims and the rest of the world is widening," Bhatt said. (DUH! Start acting like civilized people and y'all won't have that problem!!! The rest of us all think you're savages. Sorry, truth hurts.)

"The film will be an attempt to clarify Islam is not demonic and to delve into the mind of a young suicide bomber to try to find out what drives him to reject life for a violent death." (Hmmm, not demonic? Interesting. I was always of the opinion that anything that destroys your spirit and soul and advocates the destruction of innocents as well as yourself to be demonic...but hey, don't take my word for it- Just ask the congregation of the People's Temple.)

Bhatt's 21-year-old son, Rahul, will play the lead role -- an Asian Muslim living in Britain who is drawn by radical ideology to kill himself and others in the name of faith, but who fails in his deadly mission and flees to India...(presumably with a noticible limp or missing appendages. )

Am I the only one who sees the weirdness of having the words suicide, bomber, peace, mercy and forgiveness all in the same sentence?

Pass the popcorn and the C-4, please!
