Origin of racketeering: 2016
Person 1: Disney is updating its classic 1991 live-action film, The Rocketeer. This time, they're casting a black female as the lead role. What do you think about that?

Person 2: Do you mean they're rocketeering this franchise reboot. If the studio is going to bring back a mostly forgotten intellectual property then ... yeah. That might make for a fun movie to watch. I did like how they rebooted the Ghostbusters franchise with those wickedly funny comediennes.
