  1. I have a different idea. It didn’t come to me when I thought about it, but I would love to see a film where Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are the main leads. They’re both incredibly talented young actresses with a Best Actress Oscar under each of their belts and I would love to see them work off of each other in a genre of their choosing.

      You know what would be great? I’ve been watching a lot of Screen Junkies recently and they’ve been talking a lot about Face/Off. A remake with these two might be pretty great lol

      • On the one hand, this would continue a recent Hollywood trend of remaking movies that had male protagonists with women in the main leads (we can agree that “Ghostbusters: Answer The Call” is the most infamous example of that, though that film was between fine and OK). On the other hand, that’s a single R-Rated film. Maybe a new stab at the concept with J-Law and E.S. front and center would be nice. Either way, I hope that these two ladies headline something good soon.

        That’s very true, maybe wait a few more years before doing it so that all this uproar over the issue could weaken.

    Nice list. I don’t have a blog’s worth, but my dream project is Clint Eastwood involved in an epic remake of The Grapes of Wrath

  3. I’ll watch anything of the Coen brothers!

  4. Now, in order of your choices: 1. From what I heard (since I haven’t seen ‘Wind River’), it’s a solid start to his directorial career. I wouldn’t mind Taylor Sheridan experimenting with various genres. 2. As much as we love Ryan Reynolds for his numerous work in action movies, it would be nice to see him expand his range and work his talents in a drama. There’s going to come a day when he’ll be physically unable to keep starring in action movies, so I’d be interested to see him give a solid drama a try. 3. I can agree that outside of the occasional drama, Will Ferrell’s filmography has become tired and repetitive as it seems like he refuses to be in a film that’s not trying to be a boisterous comedy. Even though SNL is in his genes, there’s no shame in trying other genres in order to stay relevant. 4. Because I never seen any of “The Fast & The Furious” films, I had no idea that Gal Gadot was in that series from #4 to #6. At 32 years old, she’s still young enough to display her physical talents. In fact, I wouldn’t mind if she was in a John Wick-esque film or even if she was in John Wick 3 as her partner or even as a villain in order to match his physicality. 5. In terms of a theatrical representation of Fallout, the only way this will work is if there’s a director, a writing staff and a group or actors who’re passionate for the video game series and are entirely committed to deliver either a faithful adaptation or even on a film that explores something that the games haven’t touched on. Either way, it can finally break the video game movie curse and finally give us a film in that sub-genre that both critics and audiences can like. 6. For the most part, the Coen Brothers are incapable of doing any kind of wrong. So, why not let them try their hands at a murder mystery? 7. Yes, the reason why the original Star Wars trilogy became as beloved as it is was that George Lucas had people preventing him from lobbing bad ideas at those films. It would be nice to see him work alongside others in a Star Wars spinoff in order to help repair some of his reputation.

      Dang that was super thorough! Lol I think these could be pretty cool if done right. Do you have any ideas that would be pretty awesome??

      • I’m no movie expert, but if we’re reaching for ambitious projects, then maybe something along the line of DC vs. Marvel and have a string of films where the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe temporarily merge so that each film series’ heroes and villains can work off each other. I know that it may not happen due to licensing and executive egos, but it’s a fascinating idea that I’m just throwing out there.

      • Nick Kush says:

        I actually wrote about that in my first installment of this series. It was definitely in a joking manner, however.

      • I can’t believe that I forgot about your first “Dream Projects” article. I agree with what you said there: “A man can dream, right?”. With the way that superhero films being extremely popular, maybe we will get there someday.

        With all the crazy DC news coming out these days maybe Warner Bros. finally gets frustrated and shouts “Here, Disney! Fuck it!” lol
