I have a strange fascination with things that were supposed to happen, but never did. And in particular, I became very intrigued in Stanley Kubrick's movies that he planned on filming at some point, but never got around to it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Kubrick's_unrealized_projects So I'm curious to know for the film aficionados here what movies / series have you anticipated which were either close or never came to fruition, and you'd like to see be made? I'll start with three: KUBRICK'S NAPOLEON So long as that awful Anne Hathaway doesn't play the role of Audrey Hepburn's Josephine, an HBO miniseries overseen by Spielberg would be about as close of Kubrick's NAPOLEON as we'll ever see. --- THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY Apparently, this is the next film for DiCaprio-Scorsese. I read this book last year, and it is EXCELLENT. It's a story that alternates between the building of the 1893 Chicago's World Fair (which had numerous historic events, IE: the display of Tesla's alternating current lighting up the Columbian Exposition, the invention of the Ferris Wheel to beat Paris' Eiffel Tower, Buffalo Bill getting booted from the Exposition and opening his own show next door, the assassination of Chicago's mayor, etc), and the story of H. H. Holmes, who at the time the Fair was being built, was building his own "castle" a few blocks down and was kidnapping/killing women in his secret lair (... true story). Amazing read, but would've been better as an HBO miniseries than a film, IMO. --- UNTITLED HORROR CROSSOVER Although the original attempt with this with FREDDY VS. JASON ended up being a dud, we're in the age of crossovers and shared universes (with a related Universal Monsters crossover in the works), and I think it would be very remiss if Dimension and New Line didn't come together to produce the long-awaited Michael Myers vs. Jason Voorhees film. I would expect this to contain Freddy Krueger in some capacity (since Krueger is also a New Line property, IIRC), but even if they can't secure Pinhead, Chucky, Leatherface, and the other iconic slashers from the '70s / '80s (actually, I think that might be all of them), then Myers-Voorhees would be enough on the minimum.
