#'s 1&2: The Hobbits movies. Yes, i realize one isnt the Hobbit, but a name has yet to be given.

#5: Star Trek, to be released this May, of 2009.

Please list your most anticipated movie releases, even any rumors of possible movies in the works, or, if you find yourself at a loss and just want to reply to this thread, then share with us anything movie related.

won't repeat any, but will add

the wolverine one does look nifty.

And one that I wish would get made: good omens

I think it has been on the design block for more than 5 years.

I've read somewhere that the rights were bought up(presumably to make a movie/s one day) for the book series of Thomas Covenant, The Unbeliever, by Stephan R. Donaldson.

If done right, this could be a great flick. Of course, both Dungeons and Dragons movies could have been great if produced and directed by folks that have actually played said game. It was obvious they hadnt.

I too am looking forward to the on, then off, then on again movie The Hobbit. Didn't know they had split it in to two movies. :D

Am also looking forward to the new Star Trek movie coming up in May.

As for DnD movies, they have ALL sucked!!! Too bad, as Thoth said the directors and actor and producers and, well everyone involved has never played one game between all of them. Shoot, I could do better.

I've read that HBO is going to do George RR Martin's "Game of Thrones". HBO is no slouch when it comes to producing shows. I loved Soprano's, Rome, Deadwood. It's really the only reason I have HBO. I look forward to this one.

HBO Gives Green Light to Game of Thrones

Source: Variety (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117995693.html?categoryid=14&cs=1)
November 12, 2008



HBO has greenlit production on the pilot for a fantasy drama series, "Game of Thrones," based on a book series by George R.R. Martin.

Variety says the pilot for the long-gestating project was written by feature screenwriters David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Former HBO entertainment (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=50442#) president Carolyn Strauss will serve as a co-executive producer, along with Guymon Cassidy, Vincent Gerardis and author Martin.

HBO acquired the TV (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=50442#) adaptation rights to Martin's "Songs of Ice and Fire" book series nearly two years ago. The pilot for the HBO show is described as an exploration of "an epic struggle for power set in a vast and violent fantasy kingdom."

Benioff's recent credits include penning the screenplay for X-Men Origins: Wolverine (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=15161). Weiss recently sold bounty hunter thriller Kashmir (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=49687) to Relativity Media and is writing a prequel to Will Smith's I Am Legend for Warner Bros.

Actually, Mrken; It wont be split into two. One will be the Hobbit, and the other will take place before the Hobbit, back in the time when Sauron had his ring cut from his finger. I believe this to be true, anyway.

As far as the idea of splitting The Hobbit, in two, i would love to see that done. I cant imagine the powers that be doing it full justice with just one 3 hour movie.

Does this mean the Hobbit will be made and then the part covered by The Silmarillion? This is even better than my first thought. I have always enjoyed the stuff behind the book but the actual writing I have found to be very laborious in that book.

As for cutting the book in two, I would not be against that if they got Peter Jackson to do it. For some reason I don't see anyone else as being able to do justice to Tolkien. :(

I could be wrong, but i believe they have already started making it. They are making them both to save on budget as they did before with the other movies. I seem to remember the release dates of both movies being 2010 & 2011, respectively.

I just hoped they don't mess Astroboy up. I loved the old cartoon and I don't want to see it ruined cause of the movie.

Definately looking forward to the Origin of Wolverine, Where the Wild things are (yes it is being made into a movie), Sleep Dealer, Battle for Terra, and Angels and Demons.

Dare I say it?

The Elric movie. The script's been ready for how long, now?

Arch Lich Thoth-Amon

I'd be curous to see if they could pull off Elric. It would depend greatly on script, director, producer, and financing, then, maybe.

My fear: they will ruin it like both dnd movies. Dnd movies could have been great with the right people involved in their making.

Elric? Dear lord their going to try and make that a movie? Wow good luck guys your going to need a lot of luck for that not to be a floop.

Heard about something HBO is doing on NPR this afternoon. Something with Drew Barrymore in it ... can't find the title. Gray Gardens or something. Sounded very interesting.

I've always liked Drew Barrymore, but she tends to take these light-hearted roles that I have trouble taking seriously (Ever After being the notable exception). I can't wait to see if she's any good in this after all the preparation she went through for it.

I just read this onion article on the thundercats movie and michael bay. I would link it, but it is explicit so don't want to get in trouble with our mods. But that's what google is for.

I couldn't stop laughing the whole way through reading it. Each new sentence made me laugh harder.

I was hoping to see a Dungeons and Dragons movie some day, but that may never happen...

I can't wait for "At the Mountains of Madness". DelToro has the rights and will supposedly start it after he finnishes the Hobbit movies. Also really can't wait for "Land of the Lost" even though the preview shows it with a T-Rex instead of an Allosaurus as it should be.

Not sure what's going on with the Namor, Deathlock and Deadpool movies, but still hope they didn't drop them.

As far as "Wheel of Time", I've heard rumors of SciFi channel making it a TV series. But then again the negotiations brokedown for them to make a Pern series. So don't hold your breath. I also wish Firewirks Entertainment hadn't let their time expire the ForgottenRealms series.

There was gonna be a Pern series? *cries*

Oh well, I guess it's for the best. I likely would have hated it, had it come from Sci Fi channel.

I think the next to Tolkien movies are going to be the Hobbit and from what I understand a "bridge movie" to the trilogy.


I understand Grendal is under option. I would love to see them do it. I don't know who would Hunter Rose but hey I 'm sure they could at least get someone good.

I have a friend who is excited about the upcoming Green Lantern movie, they shoot next summer. Now all they need are names.

Oh man if they ever did a wheel of time movie it better be amazing cause that book series is unbelieveable. The 2 hobbit movies are both based on the Hobbit, they are just splitting it in half. I think it would be awesome if they did a movie based on the Silmarillion, but I thought I heard talks failed on that idea. I am also excited to see Wolverine:Origins, but I hear they created sacrilige on the character Deadpool which is seriously depressing. Another one I am very excited to see when it comes out in like 3 years is Magneto:Origins. It will be awesome to see young Magneto and Xavier as best friends fight together on the same side.
