Towering Inferno - Who dies and why?

This was on TV the other day and yes, I watched it from start to finish, for probably the 50th time. I love the part where the fire cheif (Steve McQueen) tells the architect (Paul Newman)

"The fire`s out of control and its heading your way"

I`ve never felt such a sense of impending doom, it was fantastic......However, I`m fairly sure some pimple nosed, lard ass, insensitive, buzzword vomiting executive, from some rotting film studio has already stood up and said "Hey, why dont we remake it"

So before we see Bruce Wills, pissing on the flames shouting yippee-kayeeh-muthafka, or jive talking Will Smith running around warning everyone but being ignored till its too late, or Jodie Foster trying to do it all herself, but insisting that there`s no time to save the men, lets try and set them in the right direction and telll them who WE want to see burn.

So, Towering Inferno 2008 is 100 storeys high, the fire is out of control and heading their way, so who dies and why?


100 - Paris Hilton, while filming the (Daddy financed) Hottie and the Nottie part II - Probably the only time she`ll ever be hot!

99 - M Night Shalamanyananan - He is busy writting his next masterpiece but ignores the smoke and flames as nothing "happens" till he says it will.

98 - Hayden Christensen - He actually caught fire on the FIRST floor, ran all the way up to 98 warning everyone he met, funny thing is no one believed him.

96 and 95 - Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer: killed while too hung up on trying to establish a horrendous joke about the fire.

94 - Brian Austin Green: finally realizing her fiance is a tool who was never even famous, is knocked through a skylight and into a fireball by Megan Fox. Talk about heartburn!

93 - Zac Efron: burned to death when the fire spreads to the set of Community College Musical.

When Will Smith sees the raging fire for the first time, can he say, "Aw, hell no!"?

I suppose there's no harm in a little black humor...

92 - Who needs Grauman's Chinese Theatre…BABYLON A.D. director Mathieu Kassovitz left a lasting impression on the sidewalk below by calmly accepting his fate and leaping to his demise through a shattered window…the engulfed building was owned by Fox Studios…he wouldn't be caught dead in that place.

Adam Sandler, who is the token drunk in the movie, makes a stupid joke and proceeds to stumble and then fall down an elevator shaft.

I thought this was going to be a discussion about Jennifer Jones. Oh well.
