Last night I read that the Beatles had hoped to adapt THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

George - Gandalf
Paul - Frodo
Ringo - Sam
John - Gollum

Stanley Kubrick - director

If they had actually made it, it could well have been my favorite movie ever!

Have you ever heard of any legendary movies that were planned, but never got made?

I heard that Jamie Uys, the director of The Gods Must Be Crazy planned a film called Rip MacDonald about this guy who falls asleep in 1960 and wakes up at the Palace Of The Lost City in 2000.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

In college my friends and I wrote a screenplay entitled EXPLODING COWS FROM MARS.
We only got as far as filming a trailer, but it would have been EPIC!

I forgot about Sir David Lean's Nostromo which was in pre-production before he passed away.

My friend and I worked on a screenplay for a "lost Elvis movie," ROMAN FEVER. It would star an Elvis impersonator in Roman times. He was still willing to do it until very recently until I told him the intellectual property issues would be a nightmare.

He did write a brilliant theme song:

"They've got girls at the baths
And they've got girls at the Forum,
They've got girls at the temple,
And the vomitorium..."

According to legend Prince actually shot footage on two occasions, intended for possibly two movies but no one really knows. He began filming in early 1982 starring himself, and featuring Vanity (RIP) and an unknown woman. The crew involved recall that Prince was secretive about the plot and that he pulled a Kubrick by taking endless takes of single scenes. This went on for weeks, until Prince dismissed the crew to continue on his own.

Prince shot footage again in 1986, a comedy type project starring his back then two bodyguards clashing with members of his band The Revolution playing a fictitious rock group. The shooting also featured a couple of local actors, and was filmed at a warehouse district somewhere in Minneapolis.

None of the footage ever surfaced. It is believed that Prince kept it for his private collection.

There's a lot of unmade films I'd like to see. Willis O'Brien's Creation and George Pal's adaption of The Hobbit are the 1st which come to mind.

Micheal Jackson wanted to star in a Phantom of the Opera movie at one point. 

There were talks of an Batman vs Godzilla movie back in the Adam West days. 

Bruce Campbell was supposed to be the superhero Plastic Man.

Hammer was working on a movie called Zeppelins vs Pterodactyls.  I know nothing about that but the title, but that's enough to make me want to see it.

Before George Peppard died, they were going to make an A-Team made for TV movie where the team finally got pardoned for the crimes they didn't commit. 

The 70s Spider-man was going to meet up with the Lu Ferigno Hulk in a movie (not sure if it was going to be a made for TV or an actual movie.)

Hammer was going to do VAMPIRELLA in 1975 with Peter Cushing, and I think her name was Barbara Leigh ? But Hammer went belly up.

That would have been so much better than the Vampirella movie we did get... then again, most things would have been.

Alejandro Jodorowsky could have made Dune.  With HR Giger on character design!

@Trevor - if you think Andy Griffiths books are funny, you should see him do a presentation for kids.  He kills them every time.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
