Now that Marshall Curry's 2009 go-kart documentary Racing Dreams is being turned into a dramatic feature -- from Star Trek writer-producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, no less -- it's time to just pitch every feel-good doc for a potential Hollywood remake.

Beyond the Call

The original Beyond the Call, which like Racing Dreams played the Tribeca Film Festival and has barely been seen since, is about the three-man humanitarian organization Knightsbridge, whose missions around the world have been called a cross between Indiana Jones and Mother Teresa. In the movie they're seen bringing food, supplies, money and assistance to needy areas of Afghanistan, the Philippines and Burma. And they're not only good human beings, they're hilarious, too.
