I can see it now... let's cast the Crocodile Hunter: "Yeah! She's a real beaut! I'm lying real quiet so she won't--ooh! She's gettin' aggressive!"
"LOGLINE: As an adventurer attempts to smuggle a Komodo dragon to a Mexican sport-game farm, the beast breaks free in NYC and devours bystanders. In struggling to reclaim the dragon, the adventurer comes up against a cop who'd kill to keep the incident covered up.
SYNOPSIS: An adventurer in his twenties will go anywhere for a rush. And since he's getting low on cash, it doesn't hurt that he'll make a bundle for smuggling a Komodo dragon to a Mexican sport-game farm, where the international rich will pay handsomely to watch it devour its prey. He recruits two buddies who are also looking for kicks and a big payoff. One of the friends convinces an apartment super on the Upper East Side to let them use his storage space overnight. The three plan to leave early before anyone sees the dragon. That becomes impossible when the dragon gets loose and starts eating people.
A tough NYC cop tries to keep a lid on the carnage while keeping the story hushed-up. Though he promises the trio safe conduct out of town after they successfully tranquilize the dragon, he secretly enlists a former CIA hit man to help him ambush the boys and the dragon. He doesn't know, however, that the adventurer is also an expert marksman. The CIA man and the two friends all die in the bloody shootout.
The lieutenant plunges his APC into the Hudson River. The adventurer saves him from drowning in exchange for being kept out of the police report. Meanwhile, the dragon slips out of the truck during the shooting and slides into the Hudson. Lance sees the dragon surfacing on a vacant pier, and he deftly blocks the lieutenant's view of the animal. As the lieutenant exits to return to his office and face his own problems, our man vows to continue his pursuit of the beast."
