MovieBabble’s Dream Movie Projects…Part 5!
It’s time once again for MovieBabble to share its highly intelligent and insightful thoughts on movie ideas that should come to fruition because, well, they’re awesome. Stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Leo DiCaprio can do any project they want, but I have my own ideas for them.
If this is your first time reading this series, then you need to catch up! Get busy reading! Catch up on the first four installments:

Here’s some more outstanding ideas:
Leonardo DiCaprio in an Understated Drama
We get it Leo, you’re a great actor. However, you like to shove that idea down our throats with over the top performers that subconsciously say, “LOOK, I’M ACTING!” Most, if not all of the time, this actually works. But we all want to see Leo expand his talents, so let’s see him in an understated role where his facial expressions say everything that needs to be known.
A Superhero Film that Takes Place in One Night
Let’s be honest, superhero movies are getting more and more bloated these days as more and more characters team up for even crazier end of the world stakes. Superhero films need to take a step back and create more cohesive narratives. That way, they’ll be way more refreshing and less exhausting.
So, take literally any character and put them into a situation that happens on one random night. For this to work, it’ll probably have to be a character that’s bound to the Earth so that the film’s adherence to reality makes some sense. Imagine a crime ring bust that goes wrong, forcing our hero to have to fight off baddies until the wee hours of the morning. The film will be able to display some amazing hand-to-hand choreography as well as have a crazy frenetic pace. Count me in!
Jessica Rothe in a High Profile Movie of Any Kind
She’s already 30 and hasn’t exactly hit her big break as of yet. Happy Death Day is a nice start to her ascention, but she deserves a leading role in a big time movie of any kind. She’s fun, charismatic, and suitably emotional when she needs to be.
Some stars are just super bland and conventional. It’s time to switch it up with a fresh face that is more than game to take the pedestal as one of the better actresses in Hollywood.
Plus, she couldn’t be more adorable. Look at that smile!
An Insane Action Movie Starring Idris Elba
Idris Elba is a badass, that much is obvious. He’s been in action films before, but they’ve never really paid off. He has the presence necessary to become an action star, he just needs the right project.
Let’s get Gareth Evans, the director of The Raid, to team-up with him on some type of action vehicle. Just sprinkle something in about revenge, make him lose a loved one, and yada yada yada…you have yourself a movie.
I can see the trailer now, a few shots of slow motion mixed with a roundhouse kick as that exclamation point right before Elba shows off that signature stare:
A “Making Of” Movie Circulating Around the Fantastic Four (2015)
People have been asking for this movie since Fant-four-stic was released back in 2015. Let’s be honest, it be far more interesting than the movie was.
The studio took back the film from director Josh Trank, completely recutting its second half in favor for some horrendously generic slop. But that’s not all that was wrong with the film. Other reports claim that Josh Trank showed up to set drunk on several occasions while actors just didn’t care in the slightest. On top of all of that, Michael B. Jordon was at the center of much controversy for being black and being cast as the Human Torch.
Jennifer Lawrence in a Screwball Comedy
Some people are pretty tired of Jennifer Lawrence, calling her “overexposed.” Me personally, I find her quite charming and delightful, she just needs to diversify the roles she chooses. Jennifer Lawrence has proved to be pretty hilarious in interviews, so let’s see her tackle an absurd comedy. She has that rare ability to have “rubber face,” the ability that the best comics have to contort their facial expressions into the silliest of faces.
Put her next to some other great comedian like Kristen Wiig and you have a fun buddy-comedy just waiting to happen. Jennifer Lawrence is one of the best actresses working today, and it’s time she proved it by stepping out of her comfort zone.
Sean Connery In Literally Anything
Sean, we love you. Come back to us. We’re sorry The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen broke your will to act. I’ll see anything that you’re in. If you star in the sequel to My Little Pony: The Movie, screw it, I’ll see it opening night. Just let me hear that beautiful, deep voice on screen one more time.
