Two things I am obsessed with: sharkity-sharks and Bill Pullman (the latter for reasons it could take eons to describe, so just accept it). WHY HAS NOBODY THOUGHT TO COMBINE THESE TWO THINGS? Clearly this is a cinematic void that must be filled, and if need be, I will do it myself. I thus present my query letter to Bill Pullman.
How are you? Was your weekend good? Mine was okay. I had a brainstorm! Your body of work seems to be missing only one thing. A shark movie! Would you like to be in my shark movie? I am writing it. I will give you the best part! You will play the gentle-spirited marine biologist who has lost a toe to a shark but still bravely continues to study them. I think you would be great! You could make a speech about how scary sharks are and how everyone should respect them, and then the townspeople could ignore you because they want to preserve the tourist trade. And you will shake your head sadly. Then you will team up with a rogue marine biologist! Who has a gun! You will have different ideas about how to to things. But in the end, just as you have learned to work together, the shark will eat the other marine biologist, but then you will defeat the shark! And win a medal! And a key to the city! And an attractive woman who has liked you all along will finally have the courage to speak up! The end.
I know it's not much on paper, but Bill Pullman, with the help of your acting I know it will be great! Please write back! I have enclosed several stickers with pictures of sharks (and sparkles!) to encourage your hasty reply.

P. S. I really like sharks and you!
