Looking forward to upcoming movies is one of the most exciting things for film fans. We're talking about films that are in development here. That means they've been green lit but they haven't yet released a trailer that either gives everything away or severely disappoints you. Many of the films on this list have casts and directors attached to them by this point. In several of the cases, it's actually the cast and/or directors that makes the film highly anticipated.

You'll also find that almost of all the films on this list are adaptations or sequels of some sort. Now before you start looking at everyone else to see if they're groaning so you know if you should groan as well, hear us out. How the hell are we supposed to get excited about an original film that we know nothing about? We need something to go off of, so we're going to base our excited anticipation on the source material. This is a practice we like to call, "having something to base our excited anticipation on."

Now that we've got that off our chest, we need to deal with the "if done right" portion of the title. All the films in the pipeline for the next few years look excellent on paper. They wouldn't be green lit if they weren't. Therefore, what we've done to narrow down the list, is choose the films that have the strongest teams connected to them. You might think that the Academy and all the awards shows are one giant circular jerkular, but whether you admit it or not, great films, like final poker tables, include many of the same people not by coincidence. So, let's get it started. Here are 15 films in development that will blow minds… if done right.

15 Star Wars: Han Solo

14 The Alchemist

13 Widows

12 The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

11 I Think We're Alone Now

10 Jumanji

9 The Dark Tower

8 Deadpool 2

7 Replicas

6 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

5 Alita: Battle Angel

4 The Glass Castle

3 Isle of Dogs

2 Annihilation

1 Ready Player One

Set for release in 2018, Ready Player One is a book with an excellent concept, but since it was written for young adults, it missed a lot of literary recognition in the adult circles. For those who aren't familiar with it, Ready Player One takes plays in a world where a virtual reality game offers the people an escape from their dystopic reality. The game, OASIS, is both a fantasy world and an MMORPG and its in-game currency has become the world's most stable currency. The creator of OASIS has died and left his fortune and complete control of the game to whoever finds an Easter egg that he's hidden. To find it, one needs to be well-versed in 80s pop culture. Strange right? Well, who better to direct this strange 80's-laden film than the master of the 80s himself, Steven Spielberg? Well, with a strong cast and a really interesting concept, this film looks primed and ready to make a lasting impression on the film industry in 2018.
