I'd like to know what ever happened to a 'Good Omens' movie? I read that Terry Pratchett was excited that it had been given the go-ahead ( that was in about 1999).

Catwoman doesn't look too encouraging though, but I'm looking at it from a girls point of view, I probably missed something.

From a guy's point of view, it doesn't look too good either.

I think the show Gary and Mike has potential for a movie, just because they're cruising all the time. That opens up endless possibilities.

There's too many comic book movies already.  There's no more meat on the dead horse.  Please, no more comic book based movies!

If Neil Gaiman is so disgusted by all the Sandman scripts, why doesn't he write one himself?

I don't think Gaiman was ever involved with the movie because he doesn't own the character.  He was never really interested in a movie, and he's heard of so much stupidity that's gone on that he doesn't care if it gets made.

I don't know that much about sandman, but I'm gonna take a stab and guess that Gaiman's the creator. What the hell is up with creators not being able to own their own creation?

A lot of the time, comic book companies own everything a creator does, even if that person creates new characters or starts a new series.  But that isn't as true today as it was when Gaiman did Sandman.  Gaiman still does the occasional Sandman story for DC so he doesn't seem to mind.  And unlike Alan Moore, he fortunately hasn't whined about DC not giving him the rights to creations that "morally" belong to him.

Definitly the Simpsons/Futurama crossover.  Another of my choices would have been Punisher because i've been a fan for years, but their already doing it.

I would also like a Justice League movie, and a Smallville movie.

What's up with Bionce playing lous Lane?   puke

I would also like to see a Seineld movie, but I really doubt that will happen.

Someone mentioned a Terminator vs. Robocop movie being funny (on first page).
Does anyone remember the video game for Super Nintendo? (same name)

I dunno if i'd like a Simpsons/Futurama crossover movie. Just a Futurama movie would be great. I'd save the crossover idea for the comics and fanfics.

First came the rumor that Beyoncé Knowles would play Lois Lane.  And continuing the trend of people of other races being rumored to play white characters, I now hear that Christina Milian is being considered to play Sue Storm in the Fantastic Four movie.  (This means that the Human Torch would have to be played by someone who looks like her, since they're supposed to be brother and sister).

I would like to see a movie based on Alan Moore's Watchmen. Actually, what I'd really like to see is a 12-part HBO series (each episode covers 1 issue of the comic) that would cover the full scope of the story, but how likely is that?

I had a glance through this month's Total Film magazine, and supposedly this is a go-ahead. But I hold no high hopes for it. Although I enjoyed Watchmen, I think it's way too slow-paced and depressing for today's film audiences. The director (can't remember who it was- damn!) said he was planning on spreading it over three movies, LotR style which would probably put audiences off even more. I'd rather see a TV miniseries made of it as they can go into more detail, whereas the film will either be extremely boring or just have all the important parts replaced with action scenes.

The project fel through.  According to Terry Gilliam (who was supposed to direct), the idea of a comedy about Armageddon didn't seem as appealing to film executives in a post-9/11 environment.

@Lurrr: Last I heard, Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For A Dream, Pi) was going to direct Watchmen.

Clicky.
I think it's now confirmed for North America.


I'd love to see a Metroid movie if it had the right writer/director/leading lady.

I want a new 2D animated Popeye moive as well. None of this 3D animation crap they're trying to pull with the new Christmas special coming on TV later this year (On Fox no less).

And of course, movie versions of both Futurama and The Simpsons respectfully.

It's really more of a book but they did do an ultra-crappy comic mini series with it so I am going to sneak it in here.... Harry Harrison's The Stainless Steel Rat. They totally botched him in the comics, they made him look like an eighty year old man for God's sake, but this character had real potential for a good movie. Maybe sometime in my lifetime...

Can this thread also be for video games?

After all there are movies based on video games, Resident Evil, Tomb Raiders, Super Mario Brothers, and others.

it isnt whining. he thought of it, he created it, he wrote it. he should be in charge.
a sandman movie would make a geat anime but you know they'd just do some lameo special effects driven live action movie.

i'd like to see a Chobits movie, myself. anime of course.

Just one problem: Gaiman's Sandman is named after a Golden Age DC character of the same name, so the name doesn't belong to him legally or morally.

and Miami Vice http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hp&cf=prev&id=1808509769

Please...don't use 'Super Mario Brothers' and 'movies' in the same sentence. You know how much therapy i had to go through after watching that travesty?

Yes, mmm I would like to see Tin Tin (the comic) made into a film, not sure whether it has been or not, if so they can make a new one for audiences of today. I know Asterix had been made into a movie I saw Astérix & Obélix: Mission Cléopâtre (2002) Starring Christian Clavier (Asterix) , Gérard Depardieu (Obelix)  Monica Bellucci ( Cleopatra) last year on my digital TV. A lot of exaggerating costume, but very funny.

This may sound silly, but I think they can try to make Sailor Moon into a film.  After all they made ‘Superman’, ‘Spiderman’, ‘Ninja Turtles’ and ‘The Flintstones’ into a movie.

Having read one of the scripts written for a Sandman movie, I hope it never makes it to film. Talk about pukeatronic. As for "Watchmen", that sounds good, but I'm sure they'll ruin it. And I would die happy tomorrow if I could be assured no cheesy 70s or 80s TV shows were being made into films. As for comic moves, they almost always come out better as a book than they could ever be as a movie.

I was under the impression that Miami vice and Dukes of Hazzard were TV shows.

Anwyways, they're also gonna make "The A-Team: The Movie."

Personally, I think "Superman: Red Son" (the Elseworlds storyline with the Soviet Superman) could be a great movie, but I'm afraid it could get screwed up very easily.

Also, some of Pratchett's Discworld novels could be very good movies, with "Guards! Guards!" and "Small Gods" coming to mind.

I'd kill to see a Futurama movie.  Seriously, I'd line up to see it.

I'm a little undecided on The Simpsons.....I'll get more excited when I find out the plot I think, assuming I like the plot.

Nothing else is really worth considering.

Hmm...quite a lot of what I thought would make good movies are already on the bill (HG2G, etc.)  But we're still missing

Futurama (obviously)
Stargate (full circle, so to speak)
A DS9 movie.  Yes, I'm kissing Teral's ass.  Also, I miss new Trek movies, and I'm kinda getting sick of First Contact (my personal favorite.)
A Fahrenheit 451 or 1984 remake...or did they do F451 again already?
Pretty much any Discworld novel (particularly Small Gods, as Ttomalss suggested a while back, or Men at Arms)
Order of the Stick...yeah, not very likely, but it's my favorite webcomic right now.

Superman will probably make a comeback in a year or so...long enough to appear to mourn, short enough to cash in on Chris Reeve's death.
And finally,
FOR CHRIST'S SAKE STOP MAKING BATMAN MOVIES!

Disney was considering making a live action Sailor Moon film a few years ago.  The project was scrapped when Disney found out that other companies already owned all the merchandising rights.

I still really want to see 'The Silver Surfer' made into a film. I know we've been overrun recently with Marvel Pictures, but the potential for incredibly effective use of cgi with the surfer is unparalelled.

It also helps that i'm a big fan of the comics, and the surfer's narrative, the imagery used in the recent marvel Silver Surfer comics just made me want to see it in motion.
