* The fourth book in the ''MillenniumTrilogy'' (which was originally planned as ten books). Stieg Larsson had a 75% completed manuscript when passing away but it has never been published due to an ownership dispute (Larsson's then-girlfriend claims to hold the rights since she retains the computer that held the manuscipt but after Larsson died, his parents got the rights due to Swedish law giving the properties of a person who died unmarried to their surviving parents or next of kin). Since Larsson could not get married due to Swedish law making any married couple public (Larsson had made many enemies as a news reporter and he believed that his life becoming public would allow him to be the victim of an assassination, therefore insisting that his privacy be protected), his girlfriend tried to use this as an attempt to gain the rights (since the two were already very much a couple otherwise) but failed to convince the courts. At this point, any attempt to complete the manuscript is near impossible.

* Back in September 2016, there was an announcement on a joint Japanese-Singapore-Philippine production about a basketball sports anime called ''Barangay 143'' which would be set in the Philippines. However, the official site and their Facebook page had not been updated since December 2016 and their Twitter page was gone. Despite that the release would be Spring 2017, there was no information on the cast and staff, including an animated trailer. As of this writing, it remains unknown whether the project has been delayed or cancelled.

* Also from Eastern Virginia, the expansion of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel to four lanes. While the above-water portion of the roadway (the only direct link between the Eastern Shore and mainland Virginia, specifically northern Virgnia Beach) has been four lanes since construction of parallel bridge spans and subsequent rehabilitation of the orignal spans was finished in 1999, the addition of accompanying parallel tubes to the current two-lane tunnel sections (located underneath the Thimble Shoals and Chesapeake shipping channels[[note]]due to concerns from the U.S. Navy that high rise bridge sections could collapse from either accidents or deliberate attacks and block the exit of warships and civilian shipping from Hampton Roads and other points in the Bay[[/note]]) was indefintely postponed in 2005 over concerns about funding.[[note]]the roadway's exorbitant tolls, usually no less than ''$15 for a one-way trip'', typically go back into servicing and inspections, which run continuously in five-year cycles; meanwhile, potential sources of funding from the state were set aside for other traffic projects in Hampton Roads, many of which have higher traffic volumes than the CBBT[[/note]] In 2012, plans were finally put back on the books, with design work and permit acquisition scheduled to begin in 2017, and actual construction slated for 2021 - but only for the southern tunnel at Thimble Shoals; the northern tunnel at Chesapeake Channel ''still'' doesn't have a set date for the design and permits, and is unlikely to begin before 2032.

* Back in the late 70s and early 80s, there were plans of a French-Hungarian co-produced AnimatedAdaptation of Creator/{{Voltaire}}'s ''Literature/{{Candide}}'', which were halted when the director's [[Animation/FoamBath feature film debut]] bombed, followed shortly by [[AuthorExistenceFailure him passing away]]. Fast-forward to the 2010s, when the project got reimagined as a mini series, taking guidance from the creator's original notes and adapting his excessive DerangedAnimation to modern media. Should this get finished, the idea would be SavedFromDevelopmentHell in some form.

* ''Literature/TheWiseMansFear'', the second book of ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'', was published in 2011, three years after its initially-anticipated release date. Despite Patrick Rothfuss having released the companion novella ''Literature/TheSlowRegardOfSilentThings'' in 2014, the third book of the trilogy is still nowhere in sight.

* ''ComicBook/TeenTitans: [[ComicBook/TheJudasContract Judas Contract]]'' was originally meant to be one of the first of the new franchise of ''DC Animated'' films. It was supposed to be a recreation of the classic storyline meant to piggyback off the success of the canceled ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' TV series. It was even supposed to maintain all the racier elements of the arc, such as a scene with Terra in Deathstroke's room with a nightgown on and smoking. Unfortunately it kept getting pushed back further and further to let other more popular heroes a chance to shine until eventually it was revealed the project had been cancelled. Not that it wasn't a surprise since that announcement came about several years after the start of the animated movies and they were already adapting ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanPublicEnemies'' to the animated screen. It was cited that they didn't think it was popular enough to turn into a film (though considering it's one of the most well-known comic arcs of TheEighties its likely they're judging mainstream popularity instead of just comic fans). In 2017 a different adaptation of ''The Judas Contract'' was eventually released, however it's less true to the source and is a different project from the cancelled version.

* A CGI animated adaptation of the popular comic ''ComicBook/TheGoon'', with the voices of ClancyBrown as The Goon and PaulGiamatti as Franky, was announced back in 2010, with a fully animated and voiced trailer being released. An official poster was also released claiming the film will be released theatrically. Due to financial troubles, Blur Studios launched a [[KickStarter Kickstarter]], which it successfully reached in late 2012. No information has come up since then. In March 2015, Blur Studios had an update on the Kickstarter project claiming it was close to finishing the movie.
