Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick

The classic tale of Moby Dick involves a certain Captain Ahab trying to kill a giant whale, because reasons. Why not a modern take, where Ahab is a bounty hunter trying to kill an elusive mark called Moby Dick? Naturally, he gets a crew together including a fidgety guy called Ishmael and they go after him through a super urban environment. IT WOULD BE AWESOME, GUYS.
