How it Works
What Topic hasn't been made into a movie yet?
When it comes to movies, what significant or even insignificant topic can you think off that has not been made into a movie yet?

Hmm, I want a movie set in the distant future where technology or medicine is so advanced that people basically cannot age, but then our main character becomes fascinated by our history and how it's way better in the past when people can get old and die, so he decides to start this 'religion' of people who want to die. It's basically an inverse of current religion where people want eternal life.

Interesting topic, that would be a great movie and maybe controversial. Specially when one choose to die because of internal life and one choose to live and have internal life.

On one hand, I want to congratulate you for posting such a brilliant idea. This is definitely a really interesting topic that I'd totally steal if I were a novelist/film director.
On the other hand, it's such a good idea that I kind of wonder if it hasn't been done already. I say this because it seems like most of the time someone comes up with a really good idea on the internet, someone has already done it.
I have this notion that there are no more
original ideas because most other original stuff is just crud, and there is a reason why no one has done it yet.

Yeah, I haven't really researched on this so I guess it's out there, somewhere. It's really hard having original ideas right now especially for movies since almost everything has been done, which is why we usually get book/comics adaptations or sequels/prequels or remakes of previous films. I guess most original topics are tackled by indie films, but I haven't really explored everything available, just what's in the theaters/Netflix.

I'd be lying if I said I knew anything about the indie film industry. I know that there are plenty of gems to be found, but I'm only familiar with the ones that go mainstream. I'm not all that passionate about cinema to really care about what the little guys are doing, because quite frankly I
care about what the big ones are.
It's not to say I don't care about indie content in general, though. I'm passionate about video games so I'm constantly checking out the indie scene there. Lots of good games to be found in the indie scene, so I'm sure it's the same for film as well.

I guess all topics have already been set in movies, most of them are repeated over and over again. I love story movies or the ones that have the medieval subject.

Just like you, I think we've seen everything on movies. What makes the difference is the point of view directors/producers give it, or the way they can twist the plot. The ones that can still provide new plots, I would say could be sci-fi, or futuristic ones, because those themes are yet to be explored, so as long as they generate interrogation or doubt, they will keep giving material to create about.

How about dust? I haven't heard or seen a movie that highlights dust. And i doubt there could be one at all, i bet that it would be boring and senseless. But who knows, maybe producers could make an interesting movie out of it.

There's actually some movies that tackled dust and sand storms already as well as soil and erosion.

How about an empire of zombies trying to depend their territory because other zombies are trying to invade them.

If there has been black panther of recent, I feel that making movies about the zombies should be next since the world is trying to make everything looks fine at the moment. I feel that there is need for us to enjoy our movies and hope to be learn one or two things about the movie at the end of the day.

Hey that's a good one, it's like zombies vs zombies, I think that would be a great Quentin Tarantino movie. But what would be the motivation of zombies to defend and invade since their all mindless? Hmmm a food source!

I think there are lots of topic that hasn't made into a movie, we all think that almost everything is already seen in movies but we are wrong. I will give only one example and it counts a billion topic that is really fresh and you will never find it out in every movie. Do you know what it is? This topic is all about our own principles and life story, many people die without our knowledge and we don't know how they live live their life or what lessons we can learn through their experiences in life. Because life story movies is made from famous, heroic, well known and great people and not on everyone. So our life story is one of the most fresh and unique topic that has not been made into a movie.

Where are you from Albino? Because here in our country, there are movies which presents true life story whether they are famous or not, as long as they have a good story to tell and inspire other people. We also have a drama episode every Saturday with the title "Maala-ala Mo Kaya".
People are given the chance to write their life stories and send it to the management. If they are lucky enough to be chosen, the show will produce a drama which presents their life story.
So I was wondering where are you from? Isn't your country produces any true story movie of anyone? Just wondering though.

I agree with you on this. And because of this style of gathering stories in our country, it seems like every topic has been covered. I cannot think of any topics that we haven't seen yet. Fantasy or real life, I think we've watched it not just in movies but also in our regular TV shows.

This is a really good question. In an industry that is plagued by remakes, reboots, and sequels, you would think that Hollywood has run out of ideas and is just rehashing old materials.
Is it because everything has been covered, or because they're just lazy? Who knows.
In my opinion, I'm sure there are plenty of topics that haven't been covered, but it's probably because they won't make for an interesting film. I mean sure you can make a movie about bowel movements, I don't think that has been done before, but who is going to watch that?

How about a live action Family Guy movie....they made a Garfield movie, why not a Family Guy or Simpsons movie right?

I really do not have an idea considering a lot of all movies that I haven't watched. I think there are really few topics in this world that is not in a movie. We all know that all will end up into a movie someday.

I honestly think that literally almost 99% of topics have already been made into a movie. However, some people just don't know the less known ones and do not know that the certain topics have been covered a long time ago. I can't really think of anything - there are just thousands of movies being produced yearly and that's why they are able to cover so many themes!
