Universal picked up the rights Wednesday to the Bay-produced film "Little America," a futuristic adventure film set to feature a "Donald Trump-like" president, The Hollywood Reporter said.

According to The Hollywood Report, the film will be "set in a dystopian future where a Donald Trump-like president has bankrupt America and China has called in its debts. The Asian giant now owns America and many Americans have immigrated to China looking for work."

The film follows an American hired by a Chinese billionaire to go into a ramshackle U.S. ghetto to rescue his daughter. The Hollywood Reporter compared it to the 1981 Kurt Russell film "Escape from New York," which featured a similar storyline.

Bay also produced 2016's "The Purge: Election Year," a horror movie that featured an evil president that some saw as an allusion to Trump. The film's advertising used the tagline "Keep America great" — an apparent reference to Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Trump said last week that he intends to use "Keep America Great" as his reelection campaign catchphrase in 2020.
