Action/Comedy: When a five-foot-tall actor miraculously lands the lead in a big time Hollywood action movie he must survive homicidal stunts designed by a scheming producer.
Short Pitch: (Pun intended...)
Ben has always dreamed of being a Hollywood action hero. In reality, he's just another down-on-his-luck actor with above-average talent. But there’s one more thing: this big dream is just a little further out of reach for him... because he’s just 5 feet tall.
After he gets fired from both his jobs, his car is repossessed, and his girlfriend dumps him, he’s as low as he can go. But that’s when he miraculously lands the lead in a big time Hollywood action movie, if he’ll agree to do all his own stunts.
Eager to prove himself with this new role, and win back his girl, he goes along. What he doesn't know is that the greedy producer just wants to kill him for an insurance payout.
Now he has to survive homicidal stunts, crush the bad guy, and “save the world” -- if he’s to become a real action hero and get his girl.
