The Greatest Movie Never Made

Mark Kermode

Lynne Ramsay's new film We Need To Talk About Kevin is released next week. It's a terrific adaptation of a difficult book and only her third feature to date. This is because after her first two films she spent years unsuccessfully trying to make The Lovely Bones. This got me thinking about all the other cherished but never realised projects and wondering what's the greatest movie never made?
