Frank Slaughter is a popular action hero who's persona is Frank Slaughter. In this fourth installment of the movie series, it's 2084 so it's the future (or Frank's present). Frank has to save his long-time girlfriend from the evil scientist, but in real life, Frank who started from nothing is now a huge mega-star and is demanding lots of money (although his scripts have been getting quite crappy). The movie company decides to fire him because they can't keep up with his increasing demands and after all, they spent most of their budget on the special affects. Enter Johnny Ramon, a look-alike who's a wanna-be actor/screenwriter and working 2 jobs as a waiter and bottled-water delivery man while hustling scripts and chasing gigs.
The movie is already half finished so now Johnny as the new Frank Slaughter has to finish the movie and it's up to you to go through the movie and make it spectacular. You can lose in this game by screwing up so badly that you get fired (not following the directions), or dying (because you do your own stunts), or not finishing in time (the movie production is overbudget). You have to be fast, do your stunts correctly and follow what the director is telling you to finish the game, but it won't be easy!! There are stuntmen out to get Frank and will do everything in their power to make the stunts so realistic that you can be killed!
