92. Unmade Films

April 26th, 2015

Inspired by the very entertaining documentary Jodorowsky's Dune, about one of the most fascinating and influential films never made, this week's episode revolves around films that only exist in the minds of their creators, or in some magical pocket dimension where all possibilities happen at once. In exploring the topic, Matt and Ed talk about films that were made at some point but had a potentially more interesting version somewhere in their development, films that never made it past the script phase but wound up being scavenged for parts in other films that did, and the reasons why some films never come together, either because they're too expensive or too insane. If you want to hear about how Jurassic World could have been a lot nuttier (and probably more interesting) or why every film should be written by Nick Cave, then this is the episode for you.
