    Here we talk about the Science Fiction and Fantasy movies we wish would be made whether it looks possible or if there's no chance in hell of seeing it. Personally I'd want to see a series of Starcraft movies made based off of the computer game. Next would be movies based off of the Magic: The Gathering card games.

    I'd really like to see Ender's Game made into a movie. Or perhaps Fred Saberhagen's Book of the Swords.

    Rox, they *are* making Ender's Game into a movie.

    Unfortunately (IMO), they're also combining it with the first book in the Bean saga. What is it, there isn't enough material in Ender's Game itself? It's an entire novel, for goodness sakes...

    Most of these are video games, but then that's one genre whose best material has really never been touched.

    -Eternal Darkness
    -The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    -Metroid
    -Midnight Nation
    -Outlaw Star
    -Starcraft
    -Unbreakable 2

    Thankfully Midnight Nation & Unbreakable 2 seem like posisbilities now.

    The2ndQuest, I saw that you mentioned Starcraft. For some reason I could see something done with that along the lines of Star Wars. have several movies or "episodes" like there are for each campaign. what do you think? you could create some real cliffhanger endings with some of them. especially if you put on screen the bonus level from Brood War with Zeratul discovering the protoss/zerg hybrid

    Starcraft would be great.

    I wonder if there'll be a chance if WoWC does well [face_thinking]

    I'd like to see Wyrms. Before anyone tells me it sucks I wouldn't actually know. I picked it up at a comic store the other day and didn't even realize it was an adaptation. I liked what I saw though and from the way it was portrayed in the comic it would make a beautiful movie.

    I'd really like to see Sci-Fi continue out the Dune series.

    if World of Warcraft does well then i think we got a damn good chance of seeing Starcraft on the big screen. though not as popular i see it as another Star Wars

    First Wave revived as a big screen film.

    Buffy/Angel on the big screen.

    A Star Trek movie with Q on the big screen (He's the only big time Trek 'villian' not to get a big screen treatment. The Suliban on Enterprise don't count).

    I'm starting to read 1632, and I would love to see that on the big screen.:)

    Yeah, I think it'd be pretty logical to set up Starcraft as 5-6 movies:

    Starcraft: The Terran Campaign
    Starcraft: The Zerg Campaign
    Starcraft: The Protoss Campaign
    Starcraft: Brood War
    Starcraft: "Starcraft 2, part 1"
    Starcraft: "Starcraft 2, part 2"

    and just work in some kind of resolution to those story arcs

    I'm a fan of Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy and would love to see The Restaurant At the End of Universe made into a feature film. Even a straight to DVD production would be nice if done correctly.

    I'd like to see a film version of Philip K Dick's short story "Second Variety". It would have to be tweaked (as it takes place in a future where the Soviet Union still survives), but I bet it could be done.

    I'm assuming you want a buffy movie with the tv show cast, not just any cast, as a buffy movie has already been made, that came out before the tv show began.

    Yes, with SMG and DB and the rest of the TV cast.

    Unbreakable 2? Really? Cool.

    I would also like to see a KOTOR trilogy.

    A Hobbit movie.

    George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards series of books to film, or at least a well budgeted series on HBO.

    Ringworld(In development hell from what I understand).

    Fred Saberhagen's Berserkers could be done.

    Rendevous With Rama(Also in development hell).

    Larry Niven's man Kzin Wars could make a great scifi series.

    I'd love The Hobbit, but only with PJ directing and Weta doing the FX.

    Anne McCaffrey's Pern, done properly without too much dumbing down of the more awkward parts of the books.
