Det ryktas att He-Man-filmen Grayskull kommer under 2011, likaså första säsongen av Star Wars-teveserien som det förstås är en massa hyschpysch kring. En ny Battlestar Galactica-serie (Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome) planeras också under 2011 - hurra! Serien kretsar kring en ung Bill Adama under det första Cylon-kriget. Att animen Ghost in the shell ska filmatiseras (ej animeras) har det ryktats ett tag kring, och i nuläget menar IMDB att 2011 är året det skall ske, men det som lever får se. Två andra animes som det ryktas kring i år är Cowboy Bebop och Bubblegum Crisis. Ridley Scott planerar filmatisering av romanen Brand New World med Leo di Caprio i huvudrollen. William Gibsons epokbildande cyberpunkroman Neuromancer har det tisslats om i åratal, senaste uppdateringen på IMDB är att det är i år filmen blir av (och svenskan Noomi Rapace är en av de eventuellt påtalade för rollen som Molly). Även den senare boken Pattern Recognition verkar vara på gång nu. På tal om böcker som blir film är även Philip K. Dicks roman The Man in the High Castle på gång. En gammal teveserie som ska revampas på nytt av Paul W.S. Anderson är kära gamla Buck Rogers. Inom filmvärlden är ju remakes rätt stort just nu, även Cronenbergs 80-tals-scifirulle Videodrome får en ny kostym.
