I've wanted "The Windsinger" by William Nicholson to become a movie for so long that I'm actually thinking about making it myself. Tongue

Also, Neil Gaimans Sandman books would be awesome! Although I must admit, I believe a lot of fans would be disappointed with a filmatization on the books regardless of how good the movies would be.

I'd love to see The Dresden Files turned into actual movies.  Possibly with Nicholas Cage playing Harry Dresden.  I liked him as Balthazar in The Sorcerer's Apprentice.  Thought he had a very Harry Dresden feel to him in that movie.

The Boondock Saints...2 Irish vigilantes, I love that movie.  I love cats, but, "IS IT DEAD!?"  Grin  Except as a steampunk movie of course.  (I just realized I did not add that part.  I am thinking faster than I can type.)

D. Oakes It truly is an awesome movie although the second one was kinda missing the charm of the first. Also it isn't dead Troy Duffy is just taking some time off to do another movie first, before he does Boondock Saints 3.

If I could make any movie, it would be Good Omens (my favourite book of all time, you can become my best friend ever just by being able to discuss it with me, lol!). In my dream fantasy world, I would have David Hyde Pierce (Nials from Fraiser) playing Aziphrale, and Christine Bale playing Crowley (I think he does comdeic evil quite well, if anyone has seen American Psycho....). I would still have it set in the 1980s, in the same way Donnie Darko was, with all the awful clothing, now archaic technology (like Ansaphones and the original Transformers) and of course, that Queen soundtrack.

That would make a good one.... but as a series of vignettes rather than one coherent plot it could be confusing.  If they did it, they'd probably only do the Prologue, The Lady Margaret, Lords and Ladies, Corfe Gate and the Coda.  Personally though I'd love to see a version of The Signaller done... the huge semaphore towers have masses of potential...

Steampunk versions of Bladerunner or Logan's Run would be quite novel or films of Boneshaker and Dreadnought, the Cherie Priest books.

I have really enjoyed the Erast Fandorin books, written by Boris Akunin. I think they would make a great series of TV films. It would run for years on ITV3!

Well, one has to have Schubert's "Fat-Bottomed Girls" in it. XD I wonder if the same metamorphosis happens to CDs?

I absolutely adore "Good Omens". Periodically I hear rumours of it being made into a film, usually associated with Tim Burton; hopefully some day this will happen? --Actually, IMDB lists it as being "in development" and slated for a 2013 release.

WOOO!!!

Meanwhile, have you read "Girls Next Door" over on DeviantArt? It's a very entertaining fanfic web comic in which Az & Crowley are regulars, and well-handled. http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/gallery/772068?offset=168 (the last one, "Introductions," is the first one. Wink )

Not necessarily Steampunk, but a new writing website has published their The 10 Best Sci-Fi Books That Should Be Box Office Blockbusters Some would be remakes, where they think the existing film needs a little improvment.

I haven't read all of these, but I seriously agree with some of them...

•   The Book of the Long Sun
•   Ender's Game
•   Fahrenheit 451
•   Flatland
•   Neuromancer
•   Slaughterhouse-Five
•   Snow Crash
•   The Stars My Destination
•   Stranger in a Strange Land
•   A Wrinkle in Time

For cast suggestions and other details you can disagree with Grin see:

Further to the many calls for War Of The Worlds, I'd rather see it we a six-part adaptation by the BBC, in the style of the old Sunday tea-time Classic Serials of the seventies and eighties, with the production values of the current Dr. Who series.

No need for a Hollywood star!

Why, thank you Mr.Wells, just need to brush up on my Russian then - although I note the promise of an english language version of The Turkish Gambit is in the works.

Those Sunday tea time dramas were excellent. There was a lot of Dickens adaptations as I recall
but the version of Dracula they did back in the 70's with Louis Jourdan as The Count was the closest any version's come to the actual story and they filmed on location in Whitby.

A version of WotW..done with an all British cast..set in Edwardian Britain..with scenes shot on location at places like Horsell Common..with DW production values/budget...now you're talking!!

The set up for it looks like it will be good.  The second one needs to be watched more than once.  I didn't like it at first, but I do now, I think the production was lacking moreso than the plot.  It felt "too well done" if that makes sense.  Got to admit, Noah's first assassin outfit has some steamy potential.   Grin

I now have a movie I wish would be made...the one I am working on.  And apparently as I'm working on mine, one of my friends who started making films 2 years ago is suddenly wanting to make one with a character based on me.  I am very intrigued by what he is coming up with as he wants me to play myself.  He thinks it may end up being his first feature length one.  If it is anything like the short films he has done, it may be quite epic.  I'm just wondering how a non-steampunk person is going to interpret a steampunk.
