Based on the mystical, mythical comic series by Neil Gaiman. Ted Elliot has an in depth introduction to his draft over at Wordplayer.com. Avary had a good history of his involvement in the project (working from the Elliot and Rossio script) at Avary.com, but it appears to have been taken down.

A little man from Mars has adventures on Earth. Another Lynch movie that will probably never see the light of day. But then again, Lynch has managed to get strange things produced before…

Phantasm’s End
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

by Roger Avary
The fans’ desire for this one almost guarantees it won’t be made. That and it’s reported to be too costly to film on a low budget. The fact that the script has never been distributed online could be a good sign, though.

by David Lynch and Mark Frost
I don’t know enough about this script’s history to know if Lynch would ever dust this one off. I’m sure there are fans who’d like him to.

Metropolis

by Corey Mandell
A stalled Ridley Scott project. Is this a remake of the 1926 classic? Does it have anything to do with the recent anime? Probably neither.

La Brava
Oct 30th, 2008 by mike

by Joel and Ethan Coen, novel by Elmore Leonard
One of the Coens’ few scripts adapted from someone else’s work. The story concerns a kidnapping. Shelved, and probably unavailable to the public.

Carnivore

A claustrophobic thriller centering on mysterious goings-on at a homeless center. An early script by the brothers that was never produced. Read a script review at UGO Screenwriter’s Voice.

by Brian Cooper and George Romero
While Romero was waiting for a greenlight on his 4th Dead movie, he started working on a totally different zombie movie involving an undead rock band. The project was put on hold when Land of the Dead went into production. Screenplay excerpts were once available at DiamondDead.com, but the site is no longer active.

Update 9/8/09: Diamond Dead is now a rock music show. See deadrockproductions.com for performance info.
