    You have $250 000 000 US to spend on a movie or TV series

    What do you make, what's the general plot/idea.

    can be an existing property, an original series, a sequel to a movie that never got a sequel, continue a tv series that was cancelled, you have carte blanche!

    go nuts.

    Pump more money into Game of Thrones for longer seasons. 10 is not enough for their books.

    Something new? Judge Dredd tv series based on the new movie on HBO or Showtime.

    Remake Batman and Robin, replace Arnold with Patrick Stewart. And the suit would be modeled more after the animated look with a closed dome. A few well placed puns, not every damn line. Probably keep Uma, more serious role though, probably ditch Bane. Nolan did a way better job, didn't like the look but felt like he was Bane in DKR.

    Wire transfer the $250 million to 24/7 Productions, Inc. and I'll be pleased to discuss it with you. It's what we do for a living.

    Make a run for it to a private island and employ dozens of bikini butlerettes.

    Orrrr.... Help finance a new STAR TREK series that has nothing to do with the crappy Abrahms-verse. Back to the Prime Universe for me!

    Orrrr.... Re-ignite the planned big screen remake of Gerry Anderson's UFO. Went into pre-production, design work was done (but never released), then *kaput*

    Yes, please, on the Star Trek. You'd get my money. Also, I first thought you said you would employ dozens of bikini butterflies, which I think would be awesome, so a movie about bikini butterflies.

    Actually, I would make a Vampire Princess Miyu movie. Animated or live action, I don't really care, but it would have to be really creepy, and no talking Larva.

    Or a movie based on Alice: The Madness Returns.

    Interesting challenge. If I were to go with an existing property, I'd love to do a dark animated or live action version of Conan the Barbarian. Failing that I'd love to do a Planet of the Apes series that picks up after the events of the first movie, ditches all sequels and tells the story of Taylor's children rising up to either make war or peace with the Apes (whose culture would be expanded upon and feature more ambitious renderings of apes to compliment the ones seen in the original). It'd also be interesting to make a movie or TV show based on Kirby's Fourth World. I can think of lots of original projects too, but those would require more talk than I want to go into online now.

    A Justice League film like the Avengers where we have Batman, Superman, Green Lantern all played by their current actors......plus some other heroes (Robin, Wonder Woman, Flash etc.) That would be totally awesome! So many chances for cameos from prior established actors and actresses who played them before, and for second and third tier heroes and villans as easter eggs. Coolness.

    I'd do something rough, politically very incorrect and ultra-violent. Franchises that come to mind are:

    - Conan the Barbarian
    - Punisher
    - Judge Dredd
    - Something based on either Mass Effect or Blade Runner
    "The most difficult thing is trying not to forget who you really want to be." - Nong Toom

    I am looking for these Marvel Legends figures

    I would do one of four things

    1. Make a Masters of the Universe movie
    2. Make a new Masters of the Universe animated series without the silly censorship.
    3. Make a new Transformers movie
    4. Make a Transformers animated series set on Cybertron during the war.

    Either one of these things:
    1. Make a Masters of the Universe film
    2. Make a theatrical film version of any of the animated series: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Adventure Time, or Regular Show
    3. Make a Oz film that's like the books (the closest we have is Return to Oz)
    4. Make a Disney 2D animated film about a fat princess character, who finds love.

    I think Disney's pretty much got that covered.

    If we're being serious then I'd go with M.A.S.K. I think it's terribly overlooked and has every element that could make for a killer, breakout film. And I'd be a hero for the studio that would give me a $250 million budget because I'd bring it for half of that...even with John Woo directing

    M.A.S.K. huh? Nice. Real nice. I like it. M.A.S.K. has it all (or close to it) drama, betrayal, death, action, adventure, kick b*tt fight scenes, Kick b*tt battle scenes, a splash or two of cgi/effects

    Besides Matt being snuck into G.I.Joe and some kind of artwork that popped up a year ago M.A.S.K. has been greatly overlooked.

    I would create a ninja turtle movie that is as good as the first one - but only if I can't find anyone qualified to reprise the roles on Crockett and Tubbs

    I think that's a breach of contract. Do you bad guys always have to break the rules?

    Huh? What? You want crockett and tubbs to be Ninja Turtles?


    Here's my idea:
    I'd put it toward a Princess Bride sequal. Why? Cause I think there is a way one could be done and I think they are making a mistake by not doing one. Yah, I know, making one could smear the first one.

    I'll use it to film about 800 seasons of Wipeout.

    Also keep making new episodes of all the cartoons Marvel dumps after one or two seasons, and lastly I'll bring back Double Dare. Marc Summers is done with Unwrapped, so I can probably persuade him to make a comeback to it. Hell lets just do all the classic Nick stuff!

    The King of Babylon. It starts off around 666BC when Babylon's king, Luc-ifer-Marduk has to declare war against his brother Ashurbanipal, the king of Assyria. Luc-ifer-Marduk dies, goes to hell, becomes Satan's apprentice and is renamed Lucifer, trains for 1000 years, takes over Hell by killing Satan and invades the surface world around 666AD. He is defeated by a man named Galahan and the Archangels, but it is his Lt Akuma who kills him to become the new King of Hell. The demons are defeated, most are locked back up in Hell while others spread across the world. The story then jumps to present day Prague with Mr Akuma using the Philosopher's Stone to bring Hell back upon the world, while Gallahan and the angels run an organization called The Order of The God. The God are a council who rule Heaven, and their names vary upon the culture that believes in them. I'm going to leave it there, but I've already written, rewritten, and am now re rewritting this tale in novel form.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
