A Swamp Thing remake could be on the way
In a story from MTV, at the recent WonderCon in San Francisco director Vincenzo Natali (Splice) expressed interest in making a Swamp Thing movie based on Alan Moore's version of the series.

"There are two incarnations of Swamp Thing - both of them are quite wonderful," said Natali. "The first one was by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, which was a more traditional sort of retake on classic, James Whale-style, Universal Studio horror films. Then Alan Moore reinvented the character in the early '80s, and that's actually the version that's a little more interesting to me."

Producer Joel Silver has expressed some interest in bringing the character back to the big screen, maybe even in 3-D. Presently, there's no movement on it, though.

None of the new versions went with Moore's idea for the character.

"It would be - if done properly - extraordinary," stated Natali.

In addition to this, Natali also wants to adapt the J.G. Ballard novel "High Rise" into a feature film.

"I have an adaptation of a J.G. Ballard novel called 'High Rise' that I desperately want to do," he offered. "This is about a building that is so enormous that it basically functions like a vertically integrated society."
