So many films which had great potential to become crackers but became lost on the way...

Steven Spielberg's "Night Skies" and Alfred Hitchcock's "Kaleidoscope" spring to mind

After the recent Bad Lieutenant film, I think a Herzog Werner remake of Beverly Hills Cop would be awesome! Although it will never be made

Sherlock Holmes and The Vengeance of Dracula.

Just the title gave me goosebumps when it was announced years ago but it slipped into development hell quite some time ago. I think it was supposed to act as a sequel to Bram Stoker's Dracula (somehow The Count still isn't quite dead) and would team up The Harkers and Van Helsing with Holmes and Watson in London.

Sounds hokey I know but I read a script review (maybe The Stax Report - long, long time ago) that said it was written seriously with references to Holmes' stories and the Dracula myths. Last time I heard anything about it was with Chris Columbus (pre-Harry Potter) as a producer and maybe WB as a studio but then got shelved.

Then again maybe it could have been total dreck - I remember when Aliens Vs Predator seemed like a good idea...

Darren Aronofsky's remake of Lethal Weapon starring Daniel Day Lewis as Murtaugh and Rosario Dawson as Riggs.

It really is a shame Lewis decided to move to Siberia for six years to live with the Tuva and learn the ways of their throat singing because if that had all come together, it would have been a damn fine film.

I imagine True Lies 2 would have been epic.

Also, Alien 3 with Cameron at the helm, Bishop & co surviving and lots more Aliens.

Not a whole film per say, but apparently HR Giger produced some production designs for Batman Forever (think it was mostly the Batmobile), that were eventually rejected. Imagine how that film could've looked!!

I know he made Indy instead but I always wanted to see Spielbergs Bond film
Quentins Die Hard 4 sounded alright too.

It was an online hoax by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar. Did love the idea of Gregory Peck as Bruce Wayne though.

Just found a concept sketch is online - to be honest, it's not up to his usual standards. I'd heard years back that Giger sued WB because the design that was eventually used was derived from his and not credited, but I don't see much similarity between them.

What was he thinking?! Had he seen Batman?!? How would this concept have fitted into the Batman universe?! It just looks like his usual stuff..the Alien Mobile!

Star wars episode 1, 2 and 3.

Sadly Lucas didn't want to risk making them just in case they turned out to be bad. It's a shame because I would love to see Yoda's apprentice Obi fighting along side Anikan in the clone wars.

Yeah, I read Cameron's "scriptment" when it first surfaced years ago and it reminded me of True Lies Cameron rather than Terminator,T2, Avatar and Aliens Cameron. Not bad as such but can't really see it would have been any better than Raimi's efforts, apart from being less cheesy and earnest anyway.

Now Robert Rodriguez's Spider-Man would have been...well, something. He was being considered by Sony before Raimi was picked. I wonder who Danny Trejo and Salma Hayek would have played
