Are you not entertained for this list? We'll be looking at action movies that were canceled or unreleased for various reasons. No matter how far along in production they were. However, we won't be including superhero movies as we already have a list of those. Seriously though. Give that girl a chance. Which of these action films would you like to have seen share your thoughts in the comments. Number 10 The Brazilian job released in 2003. The remake of the Italian job included a fun heist premise and a stellar cast of charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Edward, Norton and Jason Statham. It was a decent hit for paramount, which means a sequel entered pre Production soon after. I want to see the look on that man's face when his gold is gone. Shooting for the Brazilian job was meant to begin in early 2005. But despite the script going through a few drafts and most of the cast signing on it, never got there. I think it's time to move on. Don't you shut him down. I wish to do the same to you. According to Statham and co star Seth. Green management changes at the studio affected the project to the point where it became a non priority steve. What the hell are you doing? Made a few plans of my own. Although paramount never officially canceled it. It seems pretty unlikely. We'll ever see the crew return for the Brazilian job helicopter routine. I mean that was pretty damn good. Now I've got the gold number nine empires of the Deep Empires of the Deep began as the brainchild of Jon jeong a chinese real estate mogul and was a significant us china co production with a budget of around 100 and $30 million. The plot chronicled eight mermaid kingdoms trying to maintain peace during the return of an old evil and start Olga Kurylenko as the mermaid queen John's clashes with crew members led to three different directors and 10 screenwriters and working conditions were described as unsafe in a variety of ways. A trailer in 2012 was met with immensely negative criticism and the film never made. It's 2013 released eight generations for this moment. Reshoots reportedly happened in 2014 though it failed its crowdfunding campaign in 2016 to improve special effects. It seems this one will stay buried in the deep number eight halo. While Microsoft sci fi FPs series did get a tv show in 2022 that was far from the first adaptation attempt a film entered production in 2005 and some pretty impressive names were attached with the script from acclaimed sci fi screenwriter, Alex garland peter Jackson attached as producer and Fox and Universal Co financing things seemed to be well on track, sadly they didn't stay that way. You don't mean that you can't leave boxing. Universal ended up backing out of the project and with no financing, it soon died however, it was somewhat reborn when Jackson and then newcomer director neill Blomkamp repurposed its props to create the nominated district nine. Thank you boy and go home. You have to make it, don't let me go through all of this and not make it you understand while undeniably a brilliant sci fi film, bomb camps work on official live action shorts for halo three showed he was right for the job package retreat, need immediate evac over package retreat number seven Gladiator two as of 2022 a follow up to Ridley scott's brilliant Gladiator is in development, but we'd be lying if we said we wouldn't have been extremely curious to see one of its proposed Sequels, How may I be of service ideas for a follow up began forming in 2001 chronicling maximus resurrection by the Roman Gods. But it was a draft by singer slash songwriter, Nick Cave that took it to another level. It was a dream that was, shall be realized. These are the wishes of Marcus Aurelius free, the prisoners go out of fear of the rise of Christianity and how it was draining their power, the deities would have revived maximus to kill jesus and his disciples as an eternal warrior. It would have shown him fighting throughout historic events including the crusades and World War Two. That wild premise may have been a bit much for some as the script was rejected. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife and I will have my vengeance In this life or the next number six true lies to is there anything you want to tell me before we start? Yeah, I'm going to kill you pretty soon. 1994 is true. Lies was a critical and commercial darling and remains one of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger's best Let's Go. I married Rambo. Following the release of Titanic, Cameron began work on a sequel with Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Arnold all set to return. The script was finally finished in early 2001, but the World Trade Center attacks on September 11 ensured that it would never get made. The sequel was set to follow in the same comedic footsteps of the first, which made light of terrorism and even featured an airplane sequence. Cameron understandably scrapped the project entirely and has remained steadfast on the decision since while we would have liked to see the sequel, we can't fault the reasoning sometime my officers are in Rome, I would like that Number five, the mummy rise of the Aztec With 1999. The Mummy being a smash hit Sequels were inevitable. Unfortunately, those Sequels didn't quite measure up. I hate the third entry 2008, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor was panned for lackluster effects and a mediocre plot on top of that. It made less money than its predecessors? This guaranteed that Universal wouldn't move forward on 1/4 the planned rise of the Aztec. The plot would have followed the O'connell clan dealing with an Aztec mummy played by Antonio Banderas. Maria Bello had supposedly already signed on and luke ford had signed on for an additional three features. Instead, Universal took some time away from the mummy until the 2017 reboot hindsight is 2020 though and we think we would have preferred this one. Are you doing okay? You're right. We've angered the gods. Number four, Castle Vania, the movie, We adore Netflix's animated series. But that doesn't mean we can't lament the death of its live action adaptation. Production on the film began in 2005 with frequent video game. Movie director Paul W. S. Anderson attached the script went through several versions but each would have told the origin of Dracula's conflict with the Belmont family. Unfortunately, it was delayed due to the 2000 7 to 2008. Writersstrike Anderson left shortly after as did replacement, Sullivan White James wan eventually signed on the rights issues ultimately killed it. Although juan wasn't as big a name in horror as he one day would be. He clearly showed a lot of promise a Castle Vania Movie from the guy who gave us? This would have been a tree Kidman, He walks Number three bloody Iranian are you carrying the fire? You know what carrying the fire? Kind of weirded out aren't you? Cormack McCarthy's novels usually make for great movies as evidence by the road and no country for old men. One that hasn't made it to the big screen is blood Meridian's though. Not for a lack of trying. You don't have to do this. People always say the same thing. What did they say? They say you don't have to do this. The western follows a real world gang of scalp hunters in the US during the mid 18 hundreds. McCarthy has stated that a film adaptation would be a difficult task due to its extreme violence. Tommy lee jones found that to be true in the mid nineties when he couldn't get studios interested due to the content, Ridley scott ran into the same problem in the mid two thousand's. Despite having a completed script, James franco tried again throughout the 2000 tens though rights issues killed it this time. It seems it wasn't meant to be. Take me back. Number two alien awakening. The alien I. P. Is still going strong with video games, comics and perhaps more films. We don't want to sound ungrateful but we desperately wish awakening could have been made. I'm afraid I have some bad news. Well that's a switch. It's very pretty Bishop. But what are we looking for as part of the original series? The fifth film would have actually ignored the events of the 3rd and 4th entries? Instead it would have been a sequel to 1980 six's aliens set 30 years later, picking back up on Ripley newt and hicks. Are we going to sleep all the way home all the way home? Can I dream? Yes, honey, I think we both can Neil Blomkamp. The poor guy was attached to direct however, it was canceled when Fox decided to solely focus on Scott's prequel series. Watch me, I'll do the fingering go on. It wouldn't be the first time a sequel ignored the events of other installments and it probably would have been better off for it Before we continue.

Having released awesome sci fi action films like Robocop and total recall just had a terrible thought. What if this is a dream. Well then kiss me quick. Before you wake up, the director was set to reteam with total recall. Star Arnold Schwarzenegger on a historical epic chronicling the crusades. Additional cast members included, jennifer Connelly and john Tetsuro don't do this to me too humiliating for 70 grand Herb. You can afford to be humiliated. We have no doubt rare Hovan and Schwarzenegger would have delivered another incredibly violent adrenaline rush. But it also would have been interesting to Ceverha Von's vision of this dark period in history. Kara Loco, the production company attached had issues over the huge budget and didn't believe in its box office chances. It instead invested in Cutthroat Island, a massive financial bomb that not only killed crusade, but Kara Loco itself. Congratulations madam. There's another town you've destroyed.
