A top ten of movies I’d like to see produced and on the big screen. In no particular order:
1. Bauhaus Biopic
I’d love to see a movie focusing on the music of the post-punk, gothic era of the 80’s.
Yes, I know a remake’s due out very soon. I’ve always rooted for a full on horror version. Feel free to add on elements of comedy.
3. Lotte Reiniger Biopic
A biopic of quite possibly, my favourite animator.
4. Love: A User’s Guide
Based on the novel by Clare Naylor. This is a harmless romantic comedy drama.
5. The Alchemist
Based on the novel by Paulo Coelho. This should have happened this year, such a shame it’s apparantly not.
6. The Metamorphosis
Based on the short story by Franz Kafka. This could be interesting as a motion capture performance.
7. The Sandman
There are plenty of Sandman stories to adapt or a new one could be created. I’ll be happy either way as long as Death is in it and Neil Gaiman’s writing.
8. The War of the Worlds
I’d love to see this on the big screen with the story, using Jeff Wayne’s concept album.
9. The Yellow Wallpaper
Based on the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, preferably done by a mostly female team.
Starring Edina Menzel and Kristen Chenowith. Obviously.
