I Have an Idea For a 2012 Doomsday Movie

Synopsis: The Aztec Sun Stone, enraged at its continually being confused with the Mayan Long Count calendar, plots its revenge on ignorant New Agers and the exploiters who plunder Mesoamerican cultures for ill-gotten gain. But when popular culture gets into the act, not even Hollywood can withstand the wrath of the Sun Stone! Features cameos by Olmec stone heads as The Things That Drop On Crystal Skull Lickers.

The problem is that, if I really did shop that synopsis around, most of the possible producers would say, "I don't get it." The rest would make it into a slapstick comedy.

Not that this isn't funny, but it should be dark humor, because cultural appropriation sucks.

Maybe Robert Rodriguez would consider it. HMM....
