And the solution is...

a bailout!

"Headlines:
*SOMALI PIRATES APPLY TO BECOME BANK TO ACCESS TARP
*PAULSON: TARP PIRATE EQUITY IS AN `INVESTMENT,' WILL PAY OFF
*KASHKARI SAYS `SOMALI PIRATES ARE 'FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND' '
*Moody's upgrade Somali Pirates to AAA
*HUD SAYS SOMALI DHOW FORECLOSURE PROGRAM HAD `VERY LOW' PARTICIPATION
*SOMALI PIRATES IN DISCUSSION TO ACQUIRE CITIBANK
*FED OFFICIALS: AGGRESSIVE EASING WOULD CUT SOMALI PIRATE RISK
*FED AGREED OCT. 29 TO TAKE `WHATEVER STEPS' NEEDED FOR SOMALI PIRATES"

If I was the owner of one of those ships I'd definitely call in an retired military man played by a famous action hero to storm the boat and kill the pirates single handed + save the crew which includes the love interest and the action hero's daughter.

I think ship owners are frantically searching for retired military men who will serve as chefs on their boats.

The movie wouldn't be very interesting without some T&A.

i was thinking that we need a really good iranian embassy seige film. with the controversial killings, the build up, the explosions, abseiling, training...

potentially the best film ever!

Isn't that basically Who Dares Wins?

nah. who dares wins is like an 80s action film where the sas are all invincible goodies. and it's about an american anti nuclear group rather than four idiots sent by saddam hussein.

you'd have thatcher in it. you'd have saddam hussein, you'd have the whole story about the two controversial killings and the one they couldn't kill because he was in front of tv cameras. you could have amazing 1980s clothes and music. it could even be told so that you feel sorry for the gunmen and think the assault was too heavy handed.

you'd have the most awesome 20 minute action sequence at the end.

it would basically be AWESOME!

Will DIOYY play as the steerage band?

I guess tankers don't have steerage passengers, but realism never stopped movie makers.
