A professor and the daughter of an Indian guide that led a Nazis expedition to the Antarctica in 1942 must fight and defeat modern day Nazis trying to take over the world with alien technology and stolen nukes. This is a blend of Raiders of the Lost Ark, The World is Not Enough,  and Live Free or Die Hard.

Synopsis:
In 1942, an Indian guide led a Nazi Expedition to an extinct Antarctic volcano in search of a lost civilization. The guide is shot and the Nazis vanish into the volcanic cauldron. On April 20, 1945, HITLER exits his bunker and a couple steps in to be martyred. Nazi soldiers escort HITLER to a remote airfield where HITLER is flown to the secret underground city known as Germania, in the Antarctica.

Today: Deep under Hawthorne, Nevada is a secret military base that rivals NORAD. Here nuclear submarines enter from the ocean into a secret underground cavern. While a nuclear submarine is preparing to enter this secret tunnel, a Nazi submarine attacks and destroys the American sub. Nazi divers emerge to recover three nuclear warheads. Once the nukes are loaded aboard the Nazi sub, it heads for the secret underground base in the Antarctica known as Germania.

A young woman stands on the marble steps outside of the university building, she enters and meets Professor STARR, the author of Hollow Earth and the Nazis. His book is not doing well, his publisher tells him to find a marketing scheme to promote his book. The young woman is the daughter of the man who guided the Nazi Expedition in 1942. She convinces STARR to take her to this Antarctic location to prove her father was not mad. As proof, she shows him a Nazi gold bar given to her father as payment. STARR and the woman retrace the route from a map given to her by her father on his deathbed.

Once they arrived at the extinct volcano, they descend into the cauldron where Nazi soldiers capture them. They awaken inside the underground Nazi base. A cloned Himmler tells STARR that his Hollow Earth book had several errors and he needed to correct them. STARR is to witness the advent of the Third Reich. HIMMLER shows Starr a Lost City, abandoned during the Ice Age, complete with advanced technology and flying discs. HIMMLER shows them the technology the Nazis gathered from the Lost City that includes a force field that protects Germania. Later HIMMLER shows them the Cloning facilities where the DNA samples of all of the top Nazi leaders are stored for future cloning.

Jet fighters attack the underground base, but they are no match for the flying discs. SEALs and Marines attack the base to recover the warheads. STARR and the woman destroy the power station shutting down the base force fields allowing bunker-busting cruise missiles to destroy the underground base. STARR and the woman hide in the flying disc during the attack. The Marines recover one nuke, but HIMMLER and HITLER escape with the other two nukes in the flying disc.

The flying disc arrives at the Brazilian jungle compound where techs rig one nuke with an altimeter trigger so it can be dropped on Washington DC. STARR disables the altimeter trigger by cutting the wires leading to the detonator. They then they hide again in the flying disc. The nuke is loaded aboard the flying disc. HIMMLER boards the flying disc that then heads for America. The nuke is dropped, but it failed to explode. HIMMLER returns to the jungle compound. HITLER tells HIMMLER to take the last nuke to the Island of Doom, their secret Scottish island and prepare it for a drop over London.

Suddenly the Marines arrive and attack the jungle base. HIMMLER loads the last nuke aboard the flying disc. While flying to Scotland he discovers that STARR and the woman are stowaways. At the Scottish castle, STARR and the woman are told the Nazi plans for the dawning of the Third Reich beginning after they destroy London with a nuke. STARR convinces HIMMLER to allow him to accompany his bomb run and HIMMLER agrees. The woman stays behind at the castle to guarantee STARR obedience during the flight to London.

While in route to London, STARR sabotages the bomb bay release doors preventing the doors from opening. HIMMLER returns to the Scottish castle just as the Marines attack. A fierce firefight ensures, HIMMLER is killed, and the last nuke is recovered. STARR is at a book signing when the woman, now his wife, reminds him that they have a dinner engagement.

Name of Script:
Aztec Gold

Genre:
Action/Adventure

Logline:
In 1938, Dr. Jack Hogan explores old Mayan ruins for the golden sun disc containing clues to the fabled lost treasure of the Aztec Empire hidden when Cortes and the Spanish Conquistadors invaded Mexico. He has to keep one-step ahead of Nazis out to claim the treasure for their Fuhrer. This is an Indiana Jones type of action adventure.

Synopsis:

The scene opens in 1519 with Aztec warriors stashing the wealth of the Aztec Empire into the Temple of the Green Tomb. The tomb is sealed.

We jump forward to 1937 as middle age archeologist and adventurer, Dr. Jack Hogan is deep in the Central American jungles searching for the Mayan Emerald Mask of Chac. He loves climbing around in old ruins searching for lost artifacts rather than lecturing students. Inside one of the temples, he finds the secret latch that opens a cavity holding the emerald mask, but his competitor, the evil Prof. Wolfstein and his Nazi goons ambush him and steal the mask.

One year later, Jack is following Codex clues to recover the golden sun disc, rumored to hold the keys for finding the fabled lost treasure of the Aztec Nation. Aztecs hid their treasure from Cortes and his Spanish Conquistadors five hundred years ago.

Jack is not discouraged trekking through the jungles, fighting off snakes, and walking across rope bridges, but now he has to avoid the deadly booby-traps protecting the clues. Jack is clever and figures out how to recover the golden sun disc. However, Jack must deal with challenges avoiding black marketers and Nazi goons on his trail. Jack meets Jenny and her brother both experts in Mesoamerican languages who translates the golden sun disc. Together, they organize an expedition to search out the clues hidden in the Mayan ruins. Each set of clues leads Jack and his band of explorers into more danger.

Tired and sweaty from trekking through the jungles, Jack finds the location of the last clue that describes the burial site of the treasure. Unknown to Jack, a Nazi spy is among his expedition along with a black marketer who is pretending to be from Mexico Intelligence. The spy radios the final ruins location before killed by a jaguar. Now the race is on and who will get to the ruins first to find the final clue, the Nazis or Jack.

Jack recovers the final Aztec Codex after fighting off a boa constructor, but Prof. Wolfstein steals not only the Codex, but also the beautiful Jenny to translate the Codex. Now pressure builds as Jack races toward the Temple of the Green Tomb before the Nazis can decipher the Codex.

Jack finds the tomb, but now he has to disarm all of the deadly booby traps protecting the treasure from looters. The Nazis arrive and take Jack and his band of explorerís prisoners.

Prof. Wolfstein uses Jenny to forces Jack to solve the riddles and disarm the booby traps leading to the treasure chamber. The outcome can only be death unless Jack and Jenny can figure out all of the booby traps. Deadly death pits and swinging logs are not the only dangers. The fabled lost treasure chamber is also booby-trapped.
