* For the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series, they announced in Feb 2010 that there would be some sort of online multiplayer game based on the books. They picked beta testers in March 2010, saying that the game would be out at the end of 2010. Though for a while they kept listing the release of the game in the "marketing/publicity" section for each new book in [=HarperCollins=]' catalog, the beta testers never got another message after the one saying they were picked to be one, the gamemakers didn't make any posts on the official forum to keep fans updated on the game's progress though they'd promised to (to the point that the subforum for it was, eventually, removed because it confused new members), and they have not made any official statements saying whether or not it's cancelled.

** The first "leaked" script, ''Revenge of the Old Queen'', began making the rounds in the late '90s, though it reads more like a glorified FanFic. Last year, O'Brien announced that he had finally begun writing the playbook for a true sequel, entitled ''Rocky Horror: The Second Cumming''. See the Discussion page for a more detailed version.
** The movie sequel ''ShockTreatment'' is, according to WordOfGod, "not a prequel, not a sequel, but an equal". At best, it's a SpiritualSuccessor, but it is not in any way a true sequel.

** The first "leaked" Ditto for its film version, which was originally going to be followed up with a straight sequel, titled ''Rocky Horror Shows His Heels''. Numerous factors, including the unavailability of certain cast members and a reportedly ''incredibly'' lackluster script, ultimately led to its transformation into the 1981 box-office flop ''Film/ShockTreatment'', touted by O'Brien as "not a prequel, not a sequel, but an equal". Though it uses characters and setting from the first film, it's more of a SpiritualSuccessor than a sequel. O'Brien tried his hand at writing another straight sequel to the ''Picture Show'', resulting in ''Revenge of the Old Queen'', which was leaked onto the Internet and began making the rounds in the late '90s, though it reads more like a glorified FanFic. FanFic.

Added DiffLines:

* In 2013, the CW also announced that they were developing a series based on Hourman from the ''[[Comicbook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica JSA]]''. In a departure from the comics, the series would've been a mostly InNameOnly adaptation about a young man who discovers that he has the ability to see tragic events an hour before they occur. No further news about the project was released after the initial announcement, and an alternate (and more comic-accurate) take on the Hourman character was later introduced in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

* Any large scale intercity rail infrastructure in the US. Take California as an example. Back in the 1980s governor Jerry Brown (at the time one of the youngest in California history) had the wacky idea of building a high speed rail link from San Francisco to Los Angeles, just like France was doing at the time and Germany was getting ready to for their major cities. Ultimately nothing came of it before he left office, but numerous groups continued to push and lobby waiting for the right moment to get a ballot measure passed, which ultimately happened in 2008. Obama (at that time still with filibuster-proof majorities in both houses) proposed a federal high speed rail program and California was to be one of the beneficiaries. In 2015 governor Jerry Brown (in his ''fourth'' term, now one of the oldest in California history) could finally announce that construction would start and personally attended a groundbreaking ceremony. If all goes as planned, trains will be running as soon as the early 2020s - over part of the route.
* The ''Verkehrsprojekte Deutsche Einheit'' or traffic projects of German unity. As the name indicates they were set up after reunification to reestablish severed connections between East and West and restore the deteriorated East German transit networks to a more modern state. While some of the projects are now finished, as of this writing (2016) several still aren't - and for some there is not even a tentative date for completion. One of the most important, a high speed link from Berlin to Nuremberg (and from there onwards to Munich) is still only half done. The Berlin-Leipzig section (200km/h[[note]] That's roughly 125 miles per hour[[/note]]) opened in 2006. The Leipzig-Erfurt section (300 km/h) opened in December 2015 and the Nuremberg-Erfurt section (mostly 300km/h) is scheduled to open in December 2017. That's almost three decades after the need to build this ASAP was declared by the federal government.

* The Elbe Philharmonic Hall in UsefulNotes/{{Hamburg}}, Germany is in construction since 2007, and was supposed to be finished in 2010, but as of now is still not completed. Needless to say, the costs exploded too. Since its construction is to a great part financed by tax money, the citizens of Hamburg are quite understandably a little bit angry concerning this whole affair...
