Theater Thursday

You've just been hired to write, cast, direct and produce your own movie. You've been given $75 million to hire a cast and crew, and 90 days to shoot. The film is scheduled to open a year and 1/2 from today.
1) What is the name of your movie?
Lucky's Lounge.

2) Who are the stars you hire?
Jack Black, Peter Sarsgaard, Juliette Lewis, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Sedaris, and Donald Sutherland

3) What is the general plot/style/theme of your dream movie?
An old Savannah, GA hotel, The Shuffler, burns down one night, killing a Fortune 500 CEO who was there participating in less than prudent prostitute-related activities. The only survivors of the fire are the employees and patrons of the hotel bar, Lucky's Lounge. An independent investigator, hired by the board of the Fortune 500 company, interviews each of the survivors, uncovering everything in their lives but the truth about the Shuffler's last night.
It would be dark and disturbingly funny, and the plot would be arranged in a sort of Rashomon style.

Not that I've thought about this much, or anything.
BONUS) What's one obstacle you see that could prevent you from achieving this dream movie?
You mean, besides my total lack of ambition? Not much, I'd say.
