Blazing Doublets: Men in Hose
"This romantic comedy adventure takes place in 1545 England conveniently just before Shakespeare's birth. It's like watching Blazing Saddles, Men in Tights, and Princess Bride while singing Broadway show tunes and misquoting Shakespeare. A prominent film editor has likened this to "Shakespeare on Crack". The project could easily be done with a small budget although with a larger budget it would be great to hire someone like Jim Carrey as the bumbling French cook.
The plot is the familiar trading of places with the Prince of England and a poor pauper boy with a twist: All the mighty army of England can't save the prince because an evil lord commands them. So it's up to the poor pauper boy and an unlikely cast of idiots who must try to save England without killing each other in the process. It would be fun to get John Cleese to play the almost deaf (from too many explosions) Medieval gadget guy and Will Ferrell as the phantom of the dungeon. There's also a love triangle of mistaken identities adding to the chaos. Mel Brooks has the last line in the film."
