5 Movies I Would Love To See Made

Updated on April 20, 2010

Every now and then, usually having watched some recent disappointing CGI ridden movie, I find myself considering what movies that I would really want to see. What movie I would be willing to go out of my way and pay top dollar to watch. So here are 5 movies which I would be the first in the queue to watch if they ever got made.

1) The Jimmy Stewart Story

As long as I can remember I have been a huge fan of Jimmy Stewart from the Capra movies, the Anthony Mann westerns and all those others which filled in the gaps. To me Jimmy Stewart was one of the great screen actors who gave a little bit of himself to almost every character he took on. But if you read Michael Munn's biography "Jimmy Stewart - The Truth Behind the Legend" you will learn that there was a lot more to Jimmy Stewart than what you saw on screen. He was a World War II hero, a spy for Edgar J. Hoover and lived the Hollywood life style during the golden years of swinging parties where he dated several Icons of the big screen.

But the thing is that whilst I would jump at the chance to watch a biopic on the screen legend, I honestly don't know who could play him and take on his unique characteristics. Tom Hanks has a lot of the Stewart charm but sadly doesn't look enough like him to convince and there is the sticking point for me, there is no one like Stewart to take on the role.

2) Zombie's take down on Hollywood

Okay so this is a bit of wishful thinking but I would love a horror comedy in the same sort of manner as say "Zombieland" and "Shaun of the Dead" where the living dead run riot through Hollywood killing the men behind the movies. It could be filled with irony as well known big name directors, writers and stars, those who have appeared in zombie movies, get taken down by the living dead. But out of the darkness comes a hope, when an old horror star comes to their rescue.

I would just love all the self depreciating humour, the mickey taking out of Hollywood and that in the same way that "Scream" made fun of horror traditions it could too.

3) A Proper Sequel to Grease

Okay so I know we had "Grease 2" but that wasn't really a sequel, or not an enjoyable one at that and normally I don't like sequels. But it's been over 30 years since we watched Danny and Sandy drive off into the distance and it would be great fun to have a Rydell High reunion with the old gang all coming back together. The old rivalries could still be there and of course some of the characters could still be struggling to grow up, remaining as relics of the 60s. It would of course be all pretty obvious stuff, but it was such a popular musical that a proper sequel would pack out cinemas.

4) A Cagney & Lacy Movie

So yes I know the series started off with a TV movie but in the same way they did a "Starsky & Hutch" movie I would like a "Cagney & Lacy" Movie. There are some great female comedians who would be great in the lead roles and Leslie Mann & Sandra Bullock would be quite a funny pairing. You could even have Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly putting in a small fun cameo.

5) A Proper movie about Formula One

To my knowledge there has never been a really great movie about motor racing, in particular Formula One. Yet it is a sport filled with drama, rivalry and the occasional skulduggery. You combine that with maybe a romantic love rivalry thread as well, embellish it with great action sequences, special effects and a list of cameos from the greats of motor racing and you would have a movie I would queue up to watch.
