I don't wanna see titles like "Spider Man" or "Paycheck" ... I want original movies based on existing books that have no screen adaptation and if you want to point out a remake of a movie that Nolan should do then that movie must be made before 1990 - 1995.
Based on existing Books:
1. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
2. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers
3. Gargui by Andrew Davidson
- 2010: Odyssey Two (1984)
- Fire in the Sky (1993)
- Rope (1948)
- The Birds (1963)
- Vertigo (1958)
- Sleuth (1972)
- The Big Sleep (1946)
2010 was a terrible book and a marginally decent movie; there's no reason for anybody to traipse through that territory again.
Now if Tom Hanks were to use Clarke's unproduced 2001-related material (the stuff in his THE LOST WORLDS OF 2001) to make a kind of future version of FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON, it could be his HOW THE SOLAR SYSTEM WAS WON, that would be interesting territory (though probably way too tame for Nolan.)
Nolan and Clarke, huh? ... Clarke's masterpiece was CHILDHOOD'S END ... THAT is the one SF project I think maybe ONLY Nolan can make (certainly nobody else ... people have been trying off and on for 50 years, too.)

You mean better that the Soderberg remake, not the Tarkovsky original, right?
I mean, Tarkovsky isn't in the same narrative UNIVERSE as most really good filmmakerss, he' s a thing unto himself ... kind of like if Lynch and Kubrick had an accident together in Cronenberg's telepod. His STALKER is one of the three or four most amazing movies I've ever seen. I can't even articulate HOW it works on you, but it just does.
