* The ''Elfstones of Literature/{{Shannara}}'' and ''[[MagicKingdomOfLandover Magic Kingdom for Sale -- SOLD!]]'' movies. Yes, there are plans. One version of the proposed script for the latter would have given Ben a son and daughter, but Terry Brooks nixed that because their characters weren't developed enough.

** And then of course there's [[TroubledProduction the long and winding road]] to ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', which has been discussed for years. While some actors are under contract or willing to return for the sequel, Norton himself is not, and since ''The Avengers'' recast Mark Ruffalo in the role, the chances of Norton returning are virtually nonexistent. Leterrier has gone back and forth on the decision, but has stated that he's open to directing the sequel. But now Kevin Feige said in 2014 there are no plans for the movie to appear in Phase 3, and Kevin Feige has said for now, Marvel would like to restrict the Hulk and other characters like ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} to the Avengers franchise. [[FromBadtoWorse It only got worse in 2015]] when it was revealed that they have to work with Creator/{{Universal}} to deal with some right issue's before they can even consider doing a hulk film.
*** Creator/{{GuillermoDelToro}} was making a TV series slated for 2014 release, but both he and Marvel put it on the back-burner for now.

** At least two animators at ''Creator/{{Disney}}'' want to see an AnimatedAdaptation. There was an unofficial storyboard of "Defying Gravity" created by an animator floating around for a while, but it seems to have disappeared. There was also another animator who hoped Disney (or at least some animation studio) would pick up the film. A possibly third person who does character designing for Disney also made his own concept arts for what he thought Wicked might look like coming out of Disney as a part of their art portfolio. Sadly, considering the musical ''is'' property of Universal Studios, the chances of Disney getting ahold of such a project is dubious. The blockbuster reception of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' has also likely killed the chances of Disney animating ''Wicked''-- the films are [[CounterpartComparison way too similar]], even down to the original Elphaba Creator/IdinaMenzel being the voice of Queen Elsa. It's a joke in both fandoms that ''Frozen'' is the [[SpiritualAdaptation closest thing]] to a ''Wicked'' adaptation we'll see.

His most recent efforts date back to at least 2014, where he has kept updates on his writing efforts on his personal blog. Sadly, such efforts may never get past the screenplay level.

* Since at least the early 1990s, Roger Daltrey of TheWho has been attempting to put a biopic of his late CrazyAwesome drummer bandmate Keith Moon on the big screen. Robert Downey Jr. was once considered for the lead role before, in Daltrey's words, he read the script and did everything in it. MikeMyers was teased all throughout the 2000s to be playing the man himself, but after it's intended release day in 2007 passed, nothing has come of it. Currently, [=IMDB=] lists the film as "Untitled Keith Moon Project", with Mike Myers still attached to the title role.

* ''AmericanMcGeesAlice''. There were even rumors of Tim Burton directing, probably just because the game appears heavily inspired by his works. A Burton-directed Alice movie has been eventually released for real, but it has nothing to do with the videogame.
