LOS ANGELES & WASHINGTON, D.C. - After news emerged that Allied forces had fired rockets at loyalist forces, the film industry are hoping that it all bodes well.

"Think about it," said Chumpy McChumpson, "We make a trillion war movies. If we make a totally new one, about this crisis, people'll flock to see it. A video representation of our troops heroic actions at saving the Rebel Alliance from the evil overlords. It's a perfect 'America is great' and 'good guy vs. bad guy' seat-filling combo."

A French plane fired the first shots against Libyan government targets at 1645 GMT, destroying a number of military vehicles, according to a French military spokesman.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed that British planes are in action over Libya.

US President Barack Obama, said the US was taking 'limited [military] action' as part of a 'broad coalition'.

"We cannot stand idly by when a tyrant tells his people there will be no mercy," he said.

Universal, Sony Pictures and other studios are racing to embed these facts and qoutes into their scripts for thier film, and are trying to get big-name actors to fill the boots of the heroic French pilot, and of the military commander in charge of the US forces.

Insiders say that the industry is hoping for direct Allied involvement in the conflict.

"Not only will it get the Rebel Alliance freedom, it'll get up good stuff."

Studios are trying to get authentic news reports from Reuters, AFP, and AP in order to make the biggest blockbuster ever.

AS of press time, Sony had hired this reporter to be the sole British reporter that's reporting from the rebel's stronghold of Benghazi.
