      Interesting mainly for the scripts floating around out there - but otherwise I found this feature somewhat disappointing, since it mainly revolved around how to turn unfilmed scripts pretty much into This Film That Was Already Made By This Guy, And We Pretty Much Want To See The Same Thing Again. The choices all seemed to be the least inspired, least creative ones.

      This is disgraceful. What sort of scum sits around dreaming up ways to burden this world with more meidocre mind rotting filth then there already is? Your minds are weak, your souls stained and the future you paint an image more striking than any horror film to date. A future a shade less creative then the present. A world filled with dull, contrite, impersonal conforming pointless garbage thats only passion is money. Something with no other reason to exist then to perpetuate the existence of hacks. Humanity is doomed. AHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

      50 Original and unfilmed movie scripts that aren't sequels, remakes or reboots? And suggestions of appropriate filmmakers who could make the films awesome? Wow, why on Earth would you want to burden us with this obvious attempt to let cinemagoers know that there are still talented, creative people left in Hollywood, and that all hope is not lost amidst the 3Decline of the modern movie experience... I'm disappointed.

      hmm, knights sounds a lot that script round table that has been floating around for a few years, with jack black as merlin. he enlists the help of current british knights to stop morgan la fey. hilarious script, i wish it could be made.

      Is it just me or do the majority of these have unbelievably ridiculous titles? Maybe that contributes to their shelf life. I only made it to number 25 before I had to stop. The Trade is the only one that showed promise.

      I will be honest, with the exception of some of the titles of the films (Most of them are just too ridiculous), some of these movies I would actually see. I have read more than a few on other sites that discuss black list films, but few I think have lasting appeal as much are mostly retreads of other movies. I had a problem with the directors/actors casting. I know most of it is just dreamcasting, but it seems more like painting actors (and some directors) into corners and typecasting them, and to be honest, it got kind of offense (But I digress, I would probably do the same thing too). And on one note, why hasn't someone made the Jim Henson Biopic yet? I'm tired of reading about it. I really want to see it.

      THE DIVERSIFICATION OF NOAH MILLER was written by Adam Cole-Kelly and Sam Pitman. Not Chris Sparling. Please correct this on the website immediately.

      The titles of these scripts are fine. Perhaps a movie titled "Jealous Haters who will never produce anything" would be fitting for this message feed.

      I actually read the script when the blacklist was first announced and it's quite impressive. I've been wondering why nobody has done a film on such an amazing character. Hope they get this one to the big screen

      The Curse of Medusa could be a major blockbuster film I definitely would pay to see that in the movies....i think this movie will be in production soon

      RE: Curse of Medusa - If you think about it, she's the most powerful character in greek mythology... sure the Kraken is gigantic, but what kills the Kraken? Hmmmm.... It's a great idea to give her her own story... can't be worse than Wolverine, or other origin stories we've seen. I hope they don't focus on Perseus so much, he's SUCH a boring character... That's why Clash of the Titans got it wrong the first time, and the 2nd time.

      Hans Bauer (Anaconda, Highwaymen, The Flock) and Craig Mitchell (Highwaymen, The Flock) wrote the first draft screenplay based on their original pitch. Billy Ray was later hired for subsequent drafts. Should the film ever be made, it remains to be see who'll be awarded the final writing credits. Until such time, can we please stop referring to it as Motorcade by Billy Ray, and can we show at least a modicum of respect for the original creators?
