7. Transmetropolitan

This Vertigo-title features Spider Jerusalem, a futuristic version of notorious gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The science fiction series that ran from 1997-2002 was set in a colorful, bizarre, dystopian future that would be unforgettable on film. And the role of Spider in the hands of a great actor could set a new level of cinematic badass. Think Johnny Depp as Captain Jack except with more mania, less goofiness, and a sharper edge.

There's been talk of a film but none ever materialized. Perhaps to come as the cost of high quality special effects continues to fall? This is a project that has an independent film sensibility but requires a sizable special effect budget.
