    My first one is "Rendevous with Rama". Greatest book series I ever read, would be unreal in film.

    CSI the movie. I love the series and I think a 2 hour long case would be awsome!

    Super Mario Bros. - Not a sequel, but a "remake." A CGI one would be best, but a live-action version would work too. Koopa would be a fire-breathing dragon, not a human or whatever he was in the '93 version, which I didn't see. I know, I know, I shouldn't judge a film before I see it, but if they couldn't do Koopa right, then I don't have much desire to see it.

    Seven of Nine and Kes together ... Now there's a Star Trek spin-off that'd get my vote.

    Oh all right, I'll be serious.

    The Terry Practchett Discworld books should be made into movies - they are begging for a Peter Jackson-like treatment. So far, all we've had are some cartoon adaptations that require serious medication to remove from your head.

    I'd like to see a true adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest done. I love that book.

    I wouldn't mind seeing someone make an honest attempt to make a movie out the comic book, Nexus. I know it wouldn't work because Hollywood would totally shank it, but if they could do it right it would rule [​IMG]

    Alien 5 and 6 directed by Ridley scott or cameron..A cool idea would be( I think.) ; In the fifth the space jokcies invade the earth and of course using their biological weapon the Alien! This would end in a cliffhanger and then be ended in the sixth with Ripley going to the Alien homeworld to kill them all! And then finally die herself at the end ( and no there wouldn't be any dna left since she get's pulverized )
    Then Ridley scott could direct the first and James cameron the second, or the other way around and produce for each other. what do you think of that idea?
    Randenvouz with Rama by Fincher!
    The perfurme by Ridley Scott

    "Stranger In A Strange Land"

    Bowie had the rights to this for YEARS but never did anything with it. Leon Russel already has the title song written.

    But, God in Heaven, don't let any of the Vonnegut "for film" adapters get involved!!!!

    There were 3 books based on the Aaron Stampler, Martin Vail characters.
    Primal Fear
    Show of Evil
    Reign in Hell

    Primal Fear made a damn good movie and I really want Show of Evil to be done. I loved that book! Reign wasnt that great but Id see the flick anyway.

    Speaking of Terry Pratchett, he also co-authored a great little book called "Good Omens" with Neil Gaiman. It's an unforgettably hilarious read. Terry Gilliam was working on it, but couldn't raise the money he needed and was forced to move onto other projects. I still hope he gets the money to make it someday though.

    I'd love to see a film version of Haruki Murakami's novel Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World.

    Also: I'm still waiting for the Solomon Kane film...

    Oh please, goodness, NO. I do NOT need my emotions artificially manipulated by the usual directoral style of either of these two on a subject of this magnitude.

    I'm trying to wrack my brain to come up with a name, but I don't think a single director could do this topic proper justice. I think I'd like to see someone (or a few someones) who excel at minimalism try it, several years from now when some of the intimacy to the event has faded.

    I think the event's retelling would probably have to be pretty sweeping, epic in scope -- including some background on the murderers and a lot of background on some of the prominent heroes and...well, I can see it get ugly just trying to handle respectfully the portrayal of the thousands of victims. And such a film would preferably close with the finding of OBL, to at least have some sort of meaningful closure.

    I realize, though, that if/when such a film does get made, it would be unbelievably emotional -- just thinking of the last words of Flight 11 stewardess Madeline Sweeney ("I see water and buildings ... Oh my God! Oh my God.") chokes me up with tears and dread. No offense to these great directors (whom I admire for their incredible contributions in the past), but I believe there would be no need for a Spielberg or a Cameron to helm a project like this; the feelings are real enough without their "help."

    I have to agree...I almost think that if I personally were to make a movie about 9/11, I wouldn't even film anything having to do with the Twin Towers or Pentagon. We all new what happened. We saw more than we could have ever imagined, thanks to the Documentrey that was shot as it was happening.

    I would approach such a project as a smaller character piece, about how people dealt with such an event and how it touched them. I know I would never be able to do reality justice...

    The first three books in John Norman's Gor series made into a trilogy (every book after that sucks).

    Super Mario Brothers? The original is one of the worst movies of all time, so if you "remake" it, it better be a complete departure from the original waste of film.

    If there is another Alien movie made, I would like to see a prequel of what happened on the ship found by the Nostromo in the first film. I could see it as a CGI animated film, with Gieger (sp?) directing, done like a silent film with no English dialogue, only alien language and images. Ok, too avant garde to ever get financed, but we are talking dream projects, right?
