    What film hasn’t yet been made that you would like to see.

    My two films would be:

    Britains Greatest Aviator – I was listening (again) to Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown on Desert Island Disks from when he featured for their 3000th edition a couple of years ago.  I have read his book and quite a lot about the guy.  His Forest Gump’esk ability to pop up in key historical moments and his unrivaled flying story would make an incredible film. The BBC did a great documentary but there is so much more to tell.

    Vulcan 607 / Black Buck raids – Better than any fiction, the tension would make for an immense film

    The film has to be believable if audiences are going to pay to see it

    +1 for both Thomas Covenant and Neuromancer.

    It’s not very highbrow (at all), but I’ve always thought Harry Harrison’s Deathworld would make a pretty decent pulp movie.

    Strontium Dog.

    Marshall Law (might work now Deadpool is mainstream).

    Adaption of Alan Moore’s Miracleman would be an interesting antidote to the volume of mediocre superhero movies being produced.  Moore himself would of course, hate it.

    I was being serious

    The story of an ambitious young paperclip salesman whose dream is to  perform as an exotic dancer for shoe fetishists on premium airlines all across the world.

    Flashydance.

    I’m only about halfway in, but Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian would be a sight.

    I had to think for a second but i’d love to see King Conan…something that’s been on and off for maybe 30 years. I was a huge fan of the original film and it’d be great to see an older, bearded Arnie picking up the sword and ridining into battle one last time.

    Saying that though, modern films, especially  bigger budget multiplex fodder tends to be so crap in general that I can take or leave most of it and struggle to get excited about any of it.

    Yes – A film version of “Scrambles in the Alps” by Edward Whymper. Hopefully not by any Hollwyod studio though.

    I always fancied the idea of a Knight Rider film, where the plot revolves around Michael Knight, who by now is a cranky 60-something man in a Florida seniors’ complex, getting called out of retirement, and having to do a few repairs on KITT just to get it out of the garage.

    It would be a must for KITT’s moving red nose light to be stuck in one position, for the tech to have had no updates whatsoever, and for the muffler to need replacement. It would help if KITT’s voice slowed down from time to time, like a stretched old cassette tape, or an LP on a poorly turntable.

    Extra thumbs up if Michael has a prolapse in L4.

    Shite Rider – A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not remember if he exists or not

    Peterloo massacre.

    Oh Mike Leigh is doing one with Maxine Peake in it.

    Ooh, so would Outer Dark. That would make a great film.

    As would –

    The Locktender's House by [Sherrill, Steven]

    A proper stab at The Dark Tower.

    A Whillans/Brown biopic starring Jack Black and Tom Cruise……..

    A good go at ‘The White Spider’ would be something to see……

    On the Mike Leigh theme… an update to Nuts in May. What are Keith and Candice Marie up to now 40 odd years later…?

    I agree with Perchy. I honestly felt like weeping when I saw what they’d done to it. How can you go that badly wrong? I reckon TV would be a better medium for it though.

    I’d like to see The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathan Fairfax directed by Taika Waititi. Brilliantly funny book.

    There was talk of a movie of Mr Ben but it seems not to have materialised.

    The movie of Stray Toasters seemed not to happen either.

    I’d like to see a good movie about H.H. Holmes. But only if they let me design the sets.

    In fact any of Iain Banks early stuff.
