Something I read today reminded me of a movie project rumored but never (at least not yet) realized, and I thought it might make a good discussion here. Share or list movies you wished had been made and released but: *Began production then shut down, for whatever reason *Were rumored/in pre-production then put on hold/shelved/etc. I am not talking about dream cast & crews, or wish lists. Aiming for things that were actually in the works or close to it. Two off the top of my head: Gates of Fire - Michael Mann was set to direct a film about the Battle of Thermopylae (sp?), with George Clooney and Bruce Willis set to star. Had potential to be an incredible historical epic. I first read about it here: http://nitti.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=7657 The Dark Knight Returns Back in the days before the 'Net, the newspaper was the only source of movie news for most folks. I distinctly remember reading a story that had Paul Verhoeven tapped to direct a live action version of Frank Miller's Batman epic, The Dark Knight Returns. Clint Eastwood was rumored for casting. That would have been badass. Of course, that was nixed and they brought in Tim Burton, and the rest is history. What other movies that were never made do you wish had been finished?
