Odd dream. Cool movie?

Ok, so, I had a dream last night and I think it can make an excellent movie. So, peep this:

Jason Statham is a professional car thief and mechanic. His score is a junkyard. He repairs a car and drives it out the lot. Not soon after, he gets pulled over by the police and is arrested for car theft. While being interrogated, a gentleman comes in and frees him from the grips of the law; FBI agent. (I've seen this actor before, but can't think of his name. Blonde hair, glasses, chiseled face. Played a computer geek in another movie dressed in a brown tweed jacket and a scarf.)

Anyhow, the FBI agent takes Jason to a secure location and lets him know of a job needed to be done for the FBI. The job is a car that needs to be stolen. Here's the catch. The car is in 8 pieces and is held in 8 different super guarded warehouses. Engine, frame, body, interior, all in different locations.

That was all of my dream pretty much. I think it sounds like the making of a very good movie. Of course it has lots of action. It is Jason Statham by the way. And, there needs to be an antagonist somewhere. Maybe, Bruce Willis. He'd make a good bad guy.

Tell me what you think. Add on to the plot and story line and finish my movie. I want originality. NOTHING CLOSE TO A COUNTERPART! I mean, c'mon. I think this is a good idea and could be an awesome movie. Right?

After I have all my ideas together I'll write the rough draft of the screen play.

Umm.....if you had a dream like that, I would consider seeing a shrink before writing. And, don't take this too hard, it sounds like a kinda lame movie, actually. It could be just me. I don't like car theft movies. But again, that's just me. Write it, produce it, make it, and even if it's lame, market it like no other and you'll still make a huge profit.

This part is almost a direct rip off of The Bank Job

Try some other dream.

Id green-light the project if it were a tough, 1500-piece jigsaw puzzle instead of
car parts. You could make it into a tv-series. It'll get cancelled before you run out of pieces

Needs one or more plot twists/complications.

What makes this car so special? Is it a Kaiser Manhattan Project nuclear powered deathmobile? A rare classic worth millions, to be used after recovered as a bribe to a foreign government? Nikola Tesla's electric car experiment that works off the Earth's magnetism?

How does the protagonist gather the parts after locating them? What special vehicles/equipment does he use? Mobile shop in a cargo copter? Decommissioned Hercules? Does he have a team or is he working alone?

Who is the opposition? Who tries to foil his efforts at every turn? Who is willing to set traps for the protagonist, lure him close and blow his carcass to smithereens?

You must go back to sleep and dream in greater detail...color preferrably.

Now see, you're gonna have to make this a series of movies like the Diehard series. Nobodys gonna care about a car getting stolen and stripped into parts unless the first movie lets you know how badass the car is. make the car into a great car like Kit. Have it save lives in the first movie and be in the process of finding a cure for an adorable sick child. Then BAM! The heroic driver gets killed off and the car gets stolen while on some mission of mercy!
Each series can be how the heroe fights or finds his way into a different car strip warehouse to get back an expensive part of the car.
Here's the kicker. This car is a high government level secret. Each of the stolen high tech components can be used to work for good or evil. And the evil dudes are studying these parts even as we speak! So our heroe don't have much time! Maybe I need my morning coffee and just shut up, it's already 10:40 am.
