Here's a list of films planed for Bela Lugosi-(who else?  Lookingup) that never got made-

.the SUICIDE CLUB (1933) with Lugosi and Karloff for Universal Pictures.

.CAGLIOSTRO (1935)Lugosi planed on forming his own production company and this was to be the first film. Due to lack of funds-never happened. Oddly-Universal ran an ad for Karloff as Cagliostro in 1932-which also never happened.

.VAMPIRE OF THE SKIES (935) for Embassy Pictures

.The MYSTERIOUS ABBY (1935)This was to be a series of films  (kinda like the Chan or Mr. Moto movies) in which Lugosi was to play a French Clergyman who solved crimes. Wardrobes tests were photographed-no films.

.the CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1935) Concordia Films considered this with Lugosi as Caligari.

.the RETURN OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) was what the BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN became when Lugosi was considered for a role like that given to Ernest Thesiger.

.BLUEBEARD (1936) a Karloff/Lugosi team up. Never happened.

.the ELECTRIC MAN (1936) with Karloff and Lugosi. The idead was scrapped-until Universal brought it back in 1940 with Lon Chaney Jr. and Lionel Atwill as MAN MADE MONSTER (1940).

.JACK THE RIPPER (1938) with John Barrymore,Lugosi and Karloff.

. the VAMPIRE (1939) was announced by England's Argyle Films.

.the MONSTER OF ZOMBOR (1941) with Karloff / Lugosi. A poster exists-but no film does.

.BRIDE OF THE VAMPIRE (1943) Columbia was to do a sequel to Lugosi's RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE. Alas...

.RETURN OF THE WHITE ZOMBIE (195?) Lugosi told reporters he was to star in a sequel to WHITE ZOMBIE soon-of course....never...

.DR.ACULA  (1953) TV show. He announced this while on YOU ASKED FOR IT in 1953.

.the VAMPIRE'S TOMB (1954) Test footage was shot by Ed Wood. It ended up in PLAN 9.

.the GHOUL GOES WEST (1955) It was to star  Gene Autry, Lugosi,Lon Chaney Jr.,Tor Johnson and John Carradine. Another Ed Wood brainstorm that fizzled.

-and this his is just a partial edited list!

I like King Kong vs Godzilla as much as any G-Fan, but I would love it if the original idea of King Kong vs Frankenstein had gotten made. Especially with Willis O'Brien stop motion.

James Cameron was going to do a Spider-man movie with Leo DiCaprio as Spider-man and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Octopus.  

Batman and Robin was going to be followed up by a movie that went back to the darker feel of the Tim Burton movies and would feature Scarecrow and Harley Quinn.  Nicholson was going to return as the Joker in a series of hallucinations.  

Gladiator 2 had a plot so crazy it would have been great.  Maximus is constnatly reincarnated throughout history and involved in almost every conflict from trying to kill Jesus to the Vietnam war.  

There was going to be a sequel to E.T. and it was going to be  a horror movie.  

I'm just going to quote a description I've read about this one.  
Quote
Salvador Dali’s “Giraffes on Horseback Salad”
What Was It? A 1937 surrealist comedy screenplay, adapted from Dali’s original idea called “The Surrealist Woman,” which was to feature the Marx Brothers as it stars, alongside a distinctly Dali-esque cast of giraffes in gas masks and dwarves as Groucho et al., the central woman and her suitor journey through a “surrealist cabaret.”

The sequel to "District 9" could have been good.

OTOH there have been attempts to do a remake of forbidden planet , which I hope remains an unmade movie.

Guillermo del Toro's version of  H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Maddness.  I think he's one of the few directors that could have pulled it off.

There was talk of another Godfather movie (focusing on Sonny as a younger man). But Mario Puzo died, so they put the kibosh on it.

There have been rumors of a Doc Savage movie for several years, with Shane Black at the helm. At one point, it seemed like Chris Hemsworth was on board to play Doc. Other stories pointed to Vin Diesel. Not sure Vin is the right guy, but he couldn't be as silly as Ron Ely was (or could he?) I think Dwayne Johnson is in the running now.

I'm not sure that the silliness of Ron Ely wan't the way to sell it.

Of course, Ralf Möller would have had the perfect look if the show could have been made during his prime. Not sure if he could have suppressed his accent enough.

I have little idea who could pull off the Man of Bronze today. Might have to bring in a promising newcomer.

Actually, Ely wasn't a bad choice. But his performance (and the entire tone of the movie) missed the mark for me. It was obviously aimed at a Saturday matinee audience of 10-year-olds (who probably had no idea who Doc Savage was - - although, I did because I started reading the books when I was around 8). I would have preferred it if it had the look and feel of an Indiana Jones movie. The books are silly, but that's mostly because they are poorly written. I still read them.

    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.
