Pairing up with MTV, "Kill Your Darlings" stars Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan have pitched a fake Kickstarter project, "Snowy River," mocking the celebrities who seek millions in funding from us common folk.

Requesting only four thousand-hundred million dollars from their fanbase, Radcliffe and DeHaan promise to deliver a scriptless movie with questionable acting talent and virtually no plot. "This is going to be an entirely improvised film," emphasized Radcliffe. "All the best films are improvised: 'Chronicles of Riddick,' 'Pitch Black,' 'Riddick...'"

The "concept art" movie takes place in Brooklyn, because Brooklyn "is like crazy hot right now" and focuses on the lives of Joey (Radcliffe) and his childhood friend, Captain Animal (DeHaan). Joey has an accent. There is lots of hardcore sex (actual, authentic sex). There is singing. And, as if that's not enticing enough -- for donations of $50 or more, droll "Harry Potter" star Alan Rickman will watch TV with you for entire evening.

Kickstarter, get on this.
