Burning Down the House
Jake Seiling (John Savage) has a vision he wants to bring to the big screen. The problem is he doesn't have the money to pull it off. Despite being Hollywood's erstwhile wunderkind director, his claim to fame is a drunken punch he landed squarely on the nose of the biggest studio exec in town. Enter Arnie Green (James Wilder), a notorious B-Movie con man/producer with a veneer of what today might pass as charm. Together they concoct a plan - to burn down Jake's house and collect the insurance money for financing the film.
