Default What other films would you like to see made?

Is there any historical event, book, old film or television series that you would like to see made into a live-action fully budgeted motion picture? I have a few of my own wishes for films, please post your wishes here.

Mine are:
1. Fred Saberhagen's first, second and third books in his "Swords" trilogy.*
2. Micheal Moorecock's Elric Of Melnibone series.*
3. The Story of the battleship H.M.S. Warspite.*
4. A live-action Samurai Jack film (not animated, LIVE!).*
5. J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit (again non-animated).*

*(CGI special effects permitted, but not all CGI like the recent Beowulf film.)

I'd like to see a movie of Rendezvous With Rama. I've heard there's been one in the works for awhile, but just never seems to get made.

Incidently I did hear they are making a movie of The Hobbit, live action, same studio as the one who did LOTR Trilogy. Peter Jackson is producing, not directing. Strange thing is they are splitting it into two films, which I personally don't like but that's what they're doing. I hear Ian McKellen is coming back for Gandalf but I'm not sure about Ian Holm, I don't know how they'd pull him off as Bilbo since he's 60 years younger in The Hobbit, who knows they can do amazing things with makeup and CGI. Actually that quick bit of him picking up the ring in the cave in the first film was supposed to be from The Hobbit so they could probably pull it off.

There were rumors of making the issac Asmov Foundation trilogy books. So for a class assignment I storyboarded pages from the book wanting to visualize a dramatic part before the actual filmmakers do it. I'll dig it up and scan it and touch it up.... wonder where I put it....

It was a cool assignment we had to draw the storyboard 3 times... each one differently... class critiqued it... then i picked the best and mushed it into the final. Its late I'll dig tomorrow.

Ditroi, you mean "Intrepids"? I watched your video and i must say it was astounding. I love everything about it except that the dragon is a bad guy. I love dragons. You are capable of making your own dream come true. I have a feeling this won't be the last we see of the little girl with the backpack and her centaur friend, eh? Bravo!

I'd love to see The Hidden Empire (book) made into a film.

A good remake of Zardoz, of course...lol.

A good filmed version of The Stand...or well done version of Anne Rice's other Vampure books.

Or a sock puppet version of Star Trek....rofl...

Several of the Moorecock books would make great films. Along with Elric I'd like to see a Jerry Cornelius movie or Dancers At the End Of Time (my son's middle name is Jherek) or, oh boy, a film version of Behold the Man! That one would probably be too controversial for anyone to touch.

Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game I'd like to see.

Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars books

John Fowles' the Magus

Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita

William Gibson's Mona Lisa Overdrive or his Neuromancer

Sharon Shin's Archangel

and last but definitely not least -
Thomas Pynchon's literary masterpiece Gravity's Rainbow!!! It will probably never be done and if tried I can't imagine it being done right.

There're so many.
