Alfonso Cauron passing on Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire.

Guillermo Del Toro...Where do I start?

As Donnie Darko said, Singer's X3.

True Lies 2

Total Recall 2 (apparently became Minority Report)

Conan 3 (still some hope for this one)
suppose to come out 2014 w/ Arnie

Now Oliver Stone's Planet of the Apes with Arnold sounded fan-****ing tastic.

You know, it may have been a stupid idea regarding the JP franchise, but now that JPIV is moving forward, kinda wish we would have seen soemthing out of that hybrid dinosaur concept. The designs looked like nearly horror film designs, so I honestly would love to see them turn up somewhere else. They don't have place in the JP franchise, but I think that script could work as its own thing if they were so inclined.

Oliver Stone's American Psycho

Would have been interesting to see, especially with Leo as Bateman, though Bale has always been aces with me. As far as direction goes, Stone certainly had potential to give a very worthwhile approach to the material.

Alex Proya's PARADISE LOST.

Or a Paradise Lost film period for that matter.

I also really don't see the budget arguments when we got WHAT DREAMS MAY COME- in the 90s!

I don't know, but it would have been pretty cool. Unfortunately, like I said before, it seems like the second half of his professional career was a long series of abandoned projects.

Terry Gilliam's "The Man who Killed Don Quixote."
At least we got "Lost in La Mancha", a fascinating account of a kinda "cursed" film where everything that could go wrong did.

I posted this in the "Movies You Wish Were Made" thread, but totally applies here, too...

I just wish I could pull some of these movies from alternate universes, so I can see what they would've been like.

I'd love to see Tim Burton's Batman trilogy with him having full control (Marlon Wayans as Robin and everything). It would be cool to see Billy Dee as Two-Face and anything else that might have happened.

Superman vs. Batman, Batman Triumphant, and Batman Year One are also ones I would would like to see how they turned out, but without sacrificing Batman Begins and the Dark Knight to get them.

Burton's Batman 3 is like number one on movies I wish to have seen made.

Billy Dee and Robin Williams as Two-Face and Riddler I would have absolutely loved to see. Two-Face is a villain that would have fit so well with Burton too.

That whole Marlon Wayans thing was with Aronofsky not Burton, and I'm pretty sure Wayans was supposed to be the mechanic/alfred.


On the note of bonkers abandoned Aronofsky comic films, while I think he's a great director, everything I've heard about his old plans for his Wolverine film would have been terrible.

At one point in time, John Lennon owned the rights to Phillip K. Dick's Ubik script. In the story the enviornment begins to devolve around the characters becoming older versions of themselves (cars becoming 30's styles cars and so on). I've heard that there was talk of shifting the way each film was shot and lit to shift back to older styles with the film more or less a silent film by the ending.

The whole thing sounds insane, which of course it was and it was never made.


Gondry is supposed to be making a Ubik film soon. This is great news. The whole time I was watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind I was constantly reminded of the shifting reality in Ubik.

I've actually heard it the other way around, that he was turned down.

I'm likely mistaken however.

You might be true, I'm not sure what happened. Anyway we got a kinda Bond prototype film directed by Hitch with "North By Northwest."
Was Cary Grant considered for Bond at some point? I think I read that somewhere.

False. Here is an interview from 2009 where he talks about it. He says the reason they ended up going with Chris O'Donnell was because they couldn't have Robin have a bigger bulge than Batman.

ILM made a statement that those designs were not for JP4.

I realize he is joking about the bulge, but that was the first thing I saw with him talking about it when I did a search. Supposedly he was bought out of his contract, as he had signed on to play Robin for Tim Burton before they went the other direction.
