At any given moment in the nebulous world of big studio film production there are as many phantoms floating around as there are solid movies made. Regardless of whether these loosely connected collections of ideas, scripts, and attached names ever find a home and a green light, these potential projects permeate production offices, studio meetings, agents agendas as well as blogs and news sites just like this. Of these phantoms, those that draw the most passionate feedback, whether they spark hope for the possibility of seeing a childhood memory brought to life on the big screen or threaten to rip apart the internet under the weight of fans collective rage, are those that are adapted from works of science fiction and fantasy. These adaptations continue to be the go to projects of many producers due to the burgeoning success of the genres in film and television (thanks to the floodgate of comic book movies and book series based TV programs released in the last ten years), the seemingly unlimited amount of source material with built in fan bases to draw upon, and of course the inherent lack of creativity and originality in studio executives. As this is a well documented trend, one that deserves its own set of subgenres, Id rather not dwell too heavily on what we pop culture aficionados already know like Matthew Vaughns adaptation of Mark Millars Secret Service or Warner Bros. rumored Bleach adaptation (and the countless others) and instead shine some light in no particular order on the ten most highly anticipated and obscure adaptations still yet to be officially confirmed yet might actually happen.
