It seems like every subject has been beaten to death, has been serialized or remakes abound. There are even different franchises of the same movie (cough Spiderman) that make it confusing.

Thing is, when it seems like there is nothing new, it makes it hard to believe that there are subjects, books, stories, that SHOULD of been a done deal. Especially with cgi, there really isn't an excuse.

So this is basically: I can't believe they haven't made that!


And it is ok if you want to include remakes.

For me, It is Dragonriders of Pern.

Probably one of the most popular fantasy series books out there by Anne McCaffrey. You could easily adapt it to a show series. Can't believe this hasn't been touched.

I can't believe no one has remade Dune. I know there were rumors about it.

What are yours?

I for one have allways wanted to see a film adaptation of William J johnstones "Out of the ashes"
Also a sequel to Spawn would be nice.

On another note you will know the end is near when they make a theatrical movie of Gilligans Island. Yikes!

Without Remorse by Tom Clancy...I heard they were making something a few times but I am unaware of it now.

I think it was his best book and much different than his others.

Too tired to think properly, but i will give it a shot.


I'd like to see a movie based around Barry Petersen, an Australian Army Captain who was sent by the CIA into Vietnam to train Montagnard forces. After extensive training, his forces were feared by the Viet-Cong, who had called them the Tiger Men, due to their fighting prowess and their camouflage. Over time, he amassed an army of 1200 men, who all worshiped him as a demi-god. Due to Petersen being both, an Australian, and a leader (demi-god) of 1200 men, the CIA had thought that Petersen 'went native', meaning that they no longer had the reigns of him, and viewed him as a threat. Apparently, the straw broke when the CIA ordered Petersen to turn his Montagnard forces into Assassins under the Phoenix Program. Petersen refused the CIA's orders, and as a result, forces within the CIA wanted him 'gone', AKA killed. Petersen had to flee Vietnam in order to survive...

Yeah, there are some similarities to Apocalypse Now, but Petersen's story was the real deal.



A movie based around Ted Serong would also be quite interesting. He was an Australian Army Officer who was deeply involved in a lot of the US war efforts. He was considered the greatest in jungle warfare, and as such, was actually the go-to guy for allied (primarily Australian) forces during the Vietnam years. He had hand-picked Barry Petersen (see above) to conduct the Montagnard operation. It is said that the USA handed all remaining control of South Vietnamese forces to him, just as the North was about to invade Saigon. Serong, knowing it was all lost, walked through Saigon and into the US embassy. He boarded the last helicopter out of the country...

These are great, factual stories of which i would like to see made into movies.

Fictional?

I'd like to see the game, 'The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion' made into a movie. That would be epic!

Ok... So there's this movie thats 'B' grade. Made in 2007. I honestly dont know why Hollywood hasnt made a remake of this.

It's called 'The man from earth'.

It is one of the most original and thought provoking storylines i have ever heard in a movie (or a book for that matter).

The movie consists of a few highly educated characters sitting in a room conversing with eachother. I know, it sounds pathetic and boring.... but watch the first 15 mins of this movie and you will be hooked until the end! I promise.

Check it out here

The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen R Donaldson. Can't imagine why they have not made this, it would be such an epic story, with several sequals.

How can you expect movie studios to come up with new movies nowadays. They remake a movie like dances with wolves with blue Smurfs and call it avatar. Then the movie makes a billion dollars. What incentive do they have to make something new. Remember John Carter. Hate to think how much they lost on that one.

"Aztec"by Gary Jennings would make one heck of a film trilogy-maybe Peter Jackson could direct.
It would be impossible to get past the censors if he stayed true to the book though-too much depravity,sex and violence for even today's blood loving masses...The book,which I consider a masterpiece,actually gave me the symptoms of PTSD-I would wake up screaming having dreamt of being a victim in one of the Aztecs many ritual sacrifices!
Not many books I have read have done anything like that to me,in fact no other book has come close.

Would be an epic trilogy.

Would kinda like to see a movie on the Brian Lumley Necroscope series.

A vampire story that's different than all the others....

5 books in the series so there's plenty of material.

Anyone here ever read the Band of Four by Ed Greenwood? It's a four book series and would make an awesome television show.

One second after.

It was an epic book and I can see how it could be a movie and not loose too much of what made it a great story if done right.
Plus, it would awaken those who have no idea what it's about to the very real possibility of what life would be like in that situation.

There was a film made in the 80's called "Quest for Fire"
it was an amazing film about cavemen and their, well, quest for fire. i cant remember much about it, but one thing i do recall is that there was not one word spoken. it was all grunts and gestures and it was very captivating.
There was no dinasours in it so no special effects.
The idea alone is worth a remake

Heh. The Chronicles are a little involved for adaptation. Right up there with the Dark Tower series.

Another one I would love to see is the Shannara series.

Necroscope Movie. By Brian Lumley.

I would love them to make that movie. It would surely be a massive and very expensive film to make.

I'd love for them to do a really good job on Stephen Kings book - The Talisman.
Dimensional shifting .. the talisman .. the chases through the layers back and forth ..
