Hey guys,

this topic is supposed to be about your unfilmed dream project, as unrealistic as it may be. It can be an original idea, a piece of literature that has not been done or a remake of an existing movie.
The only requirement: Nothing that's already in the making.

Outline the plot, name a principle cast and a director.

My dream project would be a 2,5h movie version of Terry Pratchett's "Guards! Guards!" with the option of more City Watch movies. The adaption should not look like the TV movies.

The plot would pretty much resemble the book:


Carrot comes to Ankh-Morpork, the dragon goes wild, Vimes meets Lady Sybil, dramatic rescue.

My dream cast: (Note: I chose rather young actors so that following movies could be possible)

Vimes: skinny Michael Shannon (if not available: skinny Eric Bana)
Colon: Nick Frost
Nobbs: DJ Qualls
Carrot: difficult. If you can't find someone through casting unknowns, IŽd go with Armie Hammer (or Blake Griffin)
Wonse: Eddie Marsan without a beard
Lady Sybil: Melissa McCarthy
Vetinari: Willem Dafoe (if not available: Brad Dourif)
Librarian: mo-cap Andy Serkis (if not available: mo-cap Dennis Leary)
Dragon (voice): Kevin Conroy

Director: Duncan Jones (if not available: Edgar Wright)

Screenwriter: Stephen Briggs

I know it's not gonna happen but I really love Pratchett's books and having just re-read Guards! Guards! it came to my mind what a terrific movie it would make if you invested some money and talent.

What do you think?

And what are your dream projects?

David Lynch making another film!!


When you consider things like the stars, our affairs don't seem to matter very much, do they?

I'm not a prophet or a stone age man, just a mortal with potential of a superman.
