9. Rough Riders 4X4
The Talent: Chris Pine, Michael Sheen, director Renny Harlin
The Pitch: With the theme music from the ads: "Rough Riders 4X4, you can try to stop 'em!" forever stuck in our heads, it seems only logical to hand the rights over to a man who can orchestrate large-scale madness.
Pine plays the leader of the Rough Riders, a branch of the US Marshals who focus on stopping crimes in the remote badlands of Montana.
Sheen is a corrupt oilman looking to desolate the local State Park in the name of profit. Cue a clash!
And lots of driving, thanks to a product placement deal with Ford.
The Cost: $173 million, with Harlin spending half of it on one set piece.
The Box Office: $100 million worldwide.
