Underland by Mick Farren

Done properly it would be the most entertaining movie imaginable.

Black ops CIA/NSA spooks, vampires, Nazis and reptilians living in the hollow earth... It's not a conspiracy book it's the funnest novel ever. One of a series in his Renquihst the Vampire series.

If you can find any of Farren's SF novels give them a read.

That war produced a pile of remarkable men and stories. Nairn, Soult, Calvet, Hill, and Picton's lives were worthy of Hollywood.

The Hobbit

Maybe something about Carlos Hathcock.

Otherwise there's some really great suggestions here. I concur with the following specifically:

Silmarillion (sp)
Aubrey/Maturin series
An accurate version of Starship Troopers
More Ghost in the Shell, anime, we'll see how the live action is.

That's all I can think of for now, but I'm sure I'll think of more later.

ETA: More Cowboy Bebop, animated and live actions

Top three:

- a theatrical movie about Apollo 11...plenty of documentaries, but no movie????
- an Iraq War movie that just tries to be a war movie....not some political statement or another Elite Navy Operator Sniper Seal Celebrity movie
- an epic (like the old epics; Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, etc) about 9/11....something that is long, in-depth, and FANTASITCALLY well-done

EDIT: crap I forgot.....another top contender has to be a movie about Chernobyl. Just begging to be made. Only problem is it could easily and quickly turn into an anti-nuclear piece.

The CGI is good enough now to produce some accurate Panthers and Tigers. They can use the Bovington Tiger for close ups and there are literally hundreds if not thousands of running T-34s in Europe and the Middle East.

The final Battle of Berlin would also make a good movie.

Not holding my breath because Hollywood is terrified of pissing off China (see the Red Dawn remake as proof).

Half Life movie with Bryan Cranton as Gordon Freeman.

A remake of World War Z that actually follows the book. I mean for fuck's sake, how do you mess up that script? WE WANTED TO SEE YONKERS AND SLOW ZOMBIES BRAD. The stupid fast zombie hordes were the worst idea ever.

As good as that book is, I think Hornfischer's other magnificent battle-at-sea account called, "Neptune's Inferno: The U.S. Navy at Guadalcanal" is perhaps his defining masterpiece. IMHO, of course.

I'd like to see this honest account of how some our Navy commanders in that part of the world were so entrenched in the old ways of fighting on water they damn near lost our standing fleet in that part of the world. Don't even get me started on Adm. Ghormley, Commander of the South Pacific Area. Some of these guys did not come away with good legacies. We basically won with a little luck and the new school junior officers who had been freshly trained in newer tactics with the newly introduced modern equipment. Some defied direct orders from their captains to save the day across the series of surface battles fought. It's truly epic, and brutal, and maddening, and heroic.

That's a great story and I'd love to see it in film. Edward Abbey was bad ass.

Have you read his book, "Good News(oops wrong book, it's Brave Cowboy) "? It was made into a small B&W film from 1962 starring Kirk Douglas called, "Lonely Are the Brave".

I recommend the movie highly. I fucking weep every time.

I agree with both of those suggestions.



A Posleen War series would be awesome, especially if they did it as a premium network one.



Hell let's crank it up to 11, I'd love to see (also as a premium network series) Kratman's Carerra series done. But that will never, ever, in a billion years, ever happen.
