What kind of film would you like to see? Who would you like to see direct it, write it, produce it, star in it, score it, edit it…etc. What would you like to see, even if it is now impossible due to the dead autuers and artists being dead or due to whatever being just impossible. What would you consider to be your dream film?
Just another Kubrick film… That is all…

i watched predators last night and slept through 90% of the film
same happened when i watched twilight eclipse last week :O(
Hehe, maybe you should stay away from that stuff .
I’m waiting and hoping for King Shot, Abel Cain or whatever Jodorowsky ends up making.
they could be brilliant… i don’t know :O)
Before they start making a (third?) Twilight film, they should at least rediscover the lost masterpiece “Greed.” It’s probabaly just rotting in a cellar somewhere like the Arc of the Covenant in Indiana Jones.
A horror film that will actually scare me.
Frighten me to my bones & render me incapable of moving as the credits roll.
A comedy film that will actually make me cry tears of laughter.
Hurt my gut & cheekbones from over-exertion, all the while continually surprising me in it’s originality,
surpassing a clever script to a point of “i wish i’d thought of that; that is hysterical; a perfect joke” etc.
Those would be the two dream films i’d like to see in my lifetime.
Paul Morrissey’s version of Phantom of the Opera. It’s just a fantasy I have.
A Michael Mann, 40s era film noir filmed in the same way as Miami Vice and Public Enemies, though I think I might have read that somewhere.
My dream film is something I would never think of myself.
the strawberry dipping banana club synopsis is reebok booker (michael douglas) is the president of big bad banana enterprises and when he goes home he keeps a dungeon full of human banana people that were genetically created in the 53rd century and stacey tracey (miley cyrus) is the girl from the grocery store on the street outside his house that notices her returning customers are turning yellow when they buy big bad banana products
when a banana man escapes from president booker’s dungeon he accidentally trips outside the grocery store covering the strawberries with banana syrup and the mixture causes an invention which stacey tracey discovers is the cure 4 all banana people…
I know exactly what you mean.
Kubrick’s never realized Napoleon epic…
Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness
A steampunk themed film directed by Terry Gilliam, starring Tom Waits, with a score by Elmer Bernstein
Okay, my turn. I would’ve liked to see what Runaway Train would’ve been like had Kurosawa helmed it himself in the US. Wonder if he would’ve come to the same conclusion Kitano had after making Brother…
I also would’ve liked to see Schrader’s unproduced screenplays, such as Eight Scenes From the Life of Hank Williams and his adaptation Investigation (based on Ellio Petri’s Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion), as well as the screenplays by the Wachowski Brothers, mainly Carnivore (one of the best scripts I’ve ever read). Come to think of it, I wonder what Christopher Nolan’s Mr. Hughes would’ve been like compared to The Aviator…
And I do think John Woo’s Face/Off would’ve been much more interesting if it were directed by David Cronenberg.
Maybe these aren’t original dream films but I’ll just put them out there to start.
I was hoping Coen Brothers would film To The White Sea with Brad Pitt, but doesn’t seem likely
and Brad is now way too old for the part
Quentin Tarantinos spaghetti western about slaves, if Quentin ever makes up his mind it will take another decade for him just to write the script
Guillermo Del Toros Frankenstein and At The Mountains OF Madness
Martin Scorseses Silence
Terry Gilliams The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
Ridley Scotts Blood Meridian, he really pissed me of, not only that he canceled it year after year for another project but he left the project
David Finchers adaptation of Black Hole
And Pasolini’s unproduced idea for juxtaposing the story of St. Paul in New York.
The first shoegaze film.
I have a vague idea for this. I picture two young people in a tumultuous relationship. Maybe in suburbia. They have their slacker friends.
However, each scene is distressed and tinted, scratched and elusive. Each scene ends with the film disintegrating in on itself. At emotional peaks, the film will change colour and distort itself. The primary colours will be soft greens, pinks (like the cover of MBV’s ‘Loveless’) and oranges.
Obviously, the film will have a shoegaze soundtrack by bands like MBV, Lilys, etc. (not the soppy British ones like Chapterhouse)
…or maybe Scooter or Vengaboys…
That’s not a bad idea Malick, sounds very worthwhile to be honest.
Okay, some original one offs…
A Paul Schrader adaptation of something by Philip K. Dick, like VALIS or Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said. I think any of Dick’s work would be great for Paul to adapt and direct. Starring Jack Nicholson, since he has yet to work with him.
A Michael Mann adaptation of something by James Ellroy, most likely any of his Underground USA trilogy. Either Mann or Oliver Stone.
If Pasolini had lived into the 1980s or 1990s, it’d be interesting to see his take on the work of, say, Bret Easton Ellis. Much like he did with his many adaptations, transplanting it in Italy, maybe even a different time (perhaps during the Roman Empire?) as he usually had done.
If Mishima had not killed himself, it would’ve been very interesting to see if he could’ve began his own run of films.

the loneliness of the big brain synopsis continued…
big brain bob is so brainy that he knows hunter is an american spy in disguise as a russian spy and sets him a challenge which makes his intelligence increase beyond the spyworld using an amazing 82.778% brain capacity (more capacity than bob uses) however he is still not as brainy as bob!
I want to see ON THE TOWN remade entirely with female Japanese pop stars and sung in Japanese. And filmed on location!
Something like this:

fassbinders cocaine,the film was in pre production before his untimely death
Michael Mann was going to make a biographical picture of Enzo Ferrari in the mid 1990s with Robert DeNiro as Ferrari. Certainly to be a stylish film if it were ever made.
I’ve got a new one…Christian Bale and Charlotte Gainsbourg in a film by Bernardo Bertolucci…partly in hopes to see them with their clothes off and making whoopie.
