5 Films You Would Like To See Made (that haven't been made before) - Page 3

post #31 of 44
Like to see Guillermo Del Toro's At the mountains of madness adaptation.

Like to see a Y: The last man cable tv show (probably HBO)

In the category of movies that would redeem the rom-com genre:

Sleepless in Copenhagen
Soren Kierkegaard's engagement with Regine Olsen abruptly cut off by the former's religious-existentialist crises. Much hilarity ensues until Kierkegaard successfully defends his dissertation, On the Concept of Irony with Continual Reference to Socrates.

You've Got Shemale
Two business rivals hate each other at the office but fall in love over the internet. Turns out one's a transsexual (hard to tell over e-mail), but, you know, amor vincit omnia.

Snow Crash

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Halo.
Agree with FLMM about Blood Meridian
Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart could be interesting. (Dystopian future where the USA is in shambles/quazi military state, Europe is kind of hanging on, and china basically rules everything.)
Hardboiled Wonderland and The End of The World by Murakami

+1 for blood meridian.

War with the Newts: Wes Anderson
Epic of Gilgamesh: Tarsem Singh

another one for Blood Meridian

But honestly I can't imagine it with a great outcome in the modern movie landscape.. i.e. Appaloosa was good, so was Yuma... but that certain, dirty vibe isn't there anymore...

IF only this had existed in the 60/70s and .. let's say Sam Peckinpah had directed it.. hell yes biggrin.gif

Rap Battler

 

A normal Australian teacher drops out of teaching to take up full time rap battling in the USA and UK. Along the way many rap battles and love affairs ensue, with various hijinks involving Australian jokes, violence, attractive women and painful flashbacks revealed through rapping.

 

Cast: who the fuck cares, this plot is amazing

Cost: Lke, $40,000 or something

This sounds pretty good. There should be an adorable wallaby who turns out to pack quite a punch during the epic brawl scene at the Grammys. The teacher should also have an Aborigine mentor with implied psychic powers who it turns out in the end was really just a free loading old drunk with mental issues.

I said there'd be Australian jokes, didn't I??

 

He'd be taking on the Vietnamese and Sudanese rappers in downtown Melbourne and Sydney before his flight to the USA.

Based on the little known Jimmy Stewart flick, "The Cock Around the Corner".

+1 on Snow Crash and Neuromancer.

I'd add the Blue Ant trilogy - Pattern Recognition, Spook Country, and Zero History.

Dorsai - Gordon R. Dickson

The Flinx and Pip Series - Alan Dean Foster

Tunnel in the Sky - Robert Heinlein

And I'm not sure, but have any of the Travis McGee novels been made into films? If not, they should be.
