The films in my head

Someone's list of top ten SF movies that were never made, including some good suggestions (Snowcrash by Terry Gilliam, Hitchiker's Guide by Edgar Wright, the guy who made Shaun of the Dead). Metafilter discussion here.

Here is my list of 10 SF and fantasy books I'd like to see made into films which do not suck

Watchmen (yes, it absolutely could be done properly, yes it could) don't know who would direct it though. Fincher?

A Scanner Darkly (supposedly in development by Linklater right now, using Rotoscope - I wonder what that will be like)

The Left Hand of Darkness by Ang Lee?

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (casting extensively discussed last year, but suffice to say, Jude Law as the fairy king and Ian Holm as Mr Norrell) directed by whom?

The Bridge (Iain Banks) directed by Christopher Nolan

Snowcrash by Quentin Tarantino. you want to see it.

The Stars My Destination as long as it really came to bits at the end. Cronenburg I think.

More than Human (Theodore Sturgeon) directed by Joss Whedon

The Farthest Shore animated and directed by Miyazaki (soon to come out for real)

can't think of a tenth one for now. Other suggestions welcome.

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
