I'm not sure but this reminded me of something I found hilarious. I was once reading an old bathroom book (you know, books to read in the crapper?) and it had a section for movies that never were. One of them was Avatar! It was sooo funny to me to see that when the book was written, they thought Avatar would never happen and then it actually did! It described it exactly like the movie ended up being so that was neat, too.

From A Buick 8. I haven't checked on it in a while, but it's been "being planned" for something like 4 years now.

Phantasmagoria, it was going to be about Alice in Wonderland and Marilyn Manson was the director (it was one of his projects) but I think due to studio issues it's been put on hold until further notice.

Arrested Development has been on the borderline of rumor/real for a few years now. I know there are active plans, but I don't want to be disappointed, so I'm not holding out much hope. I would kill to see it come back.

My Man has been talking about the Three Stooges movie for years. The cast has changed numerous times, and the release date is always changing. He and his buddy and his buddy's little boy are, of course, all looking forward to it. I'll most likely stay home.

Oh thank everything that is good.
Honestly, this sounds like something with wlawesome characters & costumes but a mediocre or less-than-exciting story like American Mcgee's Alice(game) or Alice Madness returns (the sequel)

Wait, the Alice games are mediocre? Man, I've been meaning to play those for ages. That's disappointing.

And when it comes to unreleased films, there's always The Navidson Record, though that was a documentary.

Theyre nothing amazing i really wish they were but no. The stories are just "ok" and "ehh". I LOVE the art & character design though.

I think its worth buying though cuz a new copy of Alice madness returns comes with a dlc code for a free download of American Mcgees alice. Both games for around $30 on amazon.

Game-based movies are terrible though.

We saw the promo for this movie last night. My husband was in heaven. He called his buddy and they are going the weekend it comes out. Blahch.

He was so happy, though.

My kids love these games. They also have the one for Wii based on the movie with Johnny Depp. American McGee is better, from what I see.

I don't play them, though.

Apparently The Dark Crystal was intended to have a sequel, but it never came to fruition. I've heard that there have been efforts recently to restart the project, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Most are, some aren't. At one stage Peter Jackson was involved, and it looked so very promising.

Oh, good to hear. I can deal with a so-so plot if the art is good enough.

I'm also hoping that the Akira movie stays properly dropped this time. The possible director wasn't cutting it, and Americanizing it all just made no sense. The rumored Sandman movie sounded pretty bad, too, so I'm glad that failed.

A Death Note movie featuring Zach Efron would've been hella entertaining, though.
