    Hi! We can talk here about movies that should be made, on the one hand because we have a special connection to the stories, on the other hand because you think it would be a necessary movie.

    I think that Hollywood will make very soon the definite movie about guns, I mean, a pacific movie with non violent message. I don’t think ‘Elephant’ and ‘We need to talk about Kevin’ caused much effect on audiences. I’m not counting on ‘Bowling for Columbine’ because I’m talking about fiction. I want an original screenplay about guns, about the world we’re living in, to be produced and being shocking and powerful and move the audience. I would love to see Steven Soderbergh behind it, but sadly that’s not going to happen since he’s “retiring”.

    As for biopics, I can’t wait to see what Hollywood does with the Joan Fontaine versus Olivia de Havilland relationship. That is going to be the “What ever happened to Baby Jane?” of the XXI century. Another biopic that I’d adore to see happening is the Anne Hathaway project where she pressumably play both mother and daughter Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli in different periods of their lives. Also, the Nadia Comaneci biopic has to happen sometime. Someone like Rooney Mara could play Nadia.

    And, finally, my desire is that Sofia Coppola films the Romanov sisters movie. It would be a dream come true. That childhood, that revolution, that palace, that family, that dreams… Sounds like something that really, really, really could happen, specially with all these talented young ladies working in Hollywood: Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Mia Wasikowska, Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld…

    This are my suggestions. What are yours? You can include film adaptations of books you’ve read and loved, too.

    A third times the charm Babe Ruth biopic would be great. The Babe Ruth Story (1948) and The Babe (1992) are two of the worst sports movies ever. It would be nice if they could actually cast someone believable in the lead role.

    James Gandolfini would have believable as Babe Ruth.

    ^ No, Babe Ruth was only heavy late in his career.

    There are 5 movies I hope get made:

    1) a Judy Garland movie
    2) a James Dean movie (I know James Franco did one for CBS or NBS but it sucked)
    3)  a movie version of “Hard Times” by Charles Dickens
    4) a new updated version of the Three Musketeers (like a three musketeers situation in our world)
    5)  a Jersey Boys movie

    the adaptation of Patti Smith´s book ” Just Kids”. Someone like Rooney Mara could do a great Patti.

    I was going to say the same thing. CATCHER IN THE RYE is impossible to film.

    I was gonna say they needed a Patti Smith biopic! Rooney would be brilliant as Patti. I’d love to see Charlotte Gainsbourg play her since like Rooney she’s a stellar actress, and she can sing. And is it me or is there a real strong resemblance there. The only problem with Charlotte would be the accent, otherwise she’d be perfect!

    Has there been a film made about the Chappaquiddick incident? That could cover a lot of interesting territory.

    After the success of Django (and possibly 12 Years a Slave), I’m hoping people would be open for a movie about Nat Turner’s slave uprising.

    The Lance Armstrong biopic would be a good one, too. Of course, focusing on his rise and fall. Other way would be uninteresting.

    Also, a good adaptation of THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV with Jeff Bridges as Fyodor.

    I’d love to see a Dennis Wilson biopic; about his career with the Beach Boys, his friendship with Charles Manson and how it contributed to his eventual decline and death. I heard this one in pre-production at the moment with Aaron Eckhart playing him, but it’s very low profile which makes me think it could end up being stuck in development hell. Would be an interesting premise though.

    I’d also like to see a biopic of Arthur Ashe; the former US number one tennis world number one and the first and only black male winner of Wimbeldon; focusing on the discrimination he endured, the acheivments he had and his eventual death from AIDS he developed from a blood transfusion.

    I’ve said it before, but a remake of An Inspector Calls would be amazing! With Ed Harris as the Inspector and Glenn Close as Mrs Birling (Oscars for both would be a bonus!) And Benedict Cumberbatch as Gerald Croft, Rooney Mara as Sheila Birling, Timothy Spall as Mr Birling, Joseph Gordon Levitt as Eric Birling and Holiday Grainger as Eva Smith.

    And a film about the making of the movie Giant would be interesting; in which apparently Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor had a bet to see who could sleep with James Dean first, which Hudson was said to have won within days of the start of shooting. It might be just a rumour, but a cross-sexuality love triangle like that is something Hollywood couldn’t resist in a biopic and it’d make for an entertaining film. If he actually surprises us all with acting chops, I’d love to see Vince Vaughn as Hudson. The other two I’d say would be harder to cast; maybe Natalie Portman or Catherine Zeta Jones as Liz Taylor. As for James Dean I’m clueless!
