    The thread where movies go to when they are announced, but never get made......




    All of the following films were announced, either quietly or with huge fanfair, over the years, but all have one thing in common....

    They never got made.


    This is the Development Hell Archive....

    But would you have actually paid good money to see any of the following?


    (NB: Many still have their own pages on IMDB.)

    (These are the only times I will ever link to that treacherous site!)

    But if some of these titles offend you, have no fear.

    All of the following projects are almost certainly dead.

    The Tripods

    Steven Spielberg was going to make a movie version of this, but chose to do War of the Worlds instead. Since then it has been languishing in a dark corner of Development Hell....

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0441811/?ref_=nv_sr_2

    Based on a trilogy of books and a new take after the tv show of the mid eighties that only managed to adapt two of the books before getting cancelled...

    High Noon

    A small town marshal becomes the target of revenge of an outlaw due to arrive at noon and gets the cold shoulder from the local residents. A contemporary remake of the 1952 Western, 'High Noon'.

    Oh no, they could never remake anything better than the original of Sister Act. Just no way...

    I totally agree, but somebody has obviously checked the logbook of big earning films of the past and clearly thought it might be worth trying. :emoji_alien:

    I had forgotten the Michael Douglas produced Starman. I remember wanting Jeff Bridges as my own
    Starman. Such a heart touching story. However they remake it, they better get it right...:):):)

    Jason and the Argonauts: The Kingdom of Hades

    This was to have been a sequel to the original film, but seems to have died out.

    It would have been based on a comic book that Ray Harryhausen was involved with.
