Can you imagine a world without Indiana Jones, Back to the Future or Reservoir Dogs? These films are acknowledged as timeless classics, with generation after generation able to enjoy their brilliance. But in our cinematic world of blistering highs and gut wrenching lows, there are hundreds of projects that miss their chance to reach the big screen. Some are crazy projects and dreams of individuals, many remaining as scripts and doodles in attics and garages as the passing of time and people leads them to become little more than rumours in the wind. How different could things have been? Were we saved from these disasters or did we miss out on just as equally great films as mentioned earlier?

In this new weekly feature, if you’ll allow me, I’d  like to celebrate the “what if?” projects that range from the greatest and grandest biographies to the alternative versions »
