    Discuss: Will Michael Mann & 'Hugo' Writer John Logan's Unmade 1930s Hollywood Noir Ever Make It To The Screen?

    The walls of the studio backlots have always been haunted by the films that never made it into production.

    Over-Attached: What Projects Will Guillermo Del Toro, Ridley Scott, Michael Mann & Martin Scorsese Actually Make?
