    Saw this here, don't get mad at me about the implicit rankings.

    So, you have $15 to make a movie. You get one director, two actors, and two actresses from the following list.

    And go.

    Directed by Peter Jackson. Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Bullock, Robert Duvall, and Judi Dench. With my extra ten bucks I'll have really good craft service to keep 'em all happy.

    Nolan directs one more Batman movie, Bale as Batman/ Bruce Wayne and Hush, Sam Rockwell as the Mad Hatter, Michelle Williams as Bat Girl/ Barbara Gordon, Jodie Foster as a member of the Court of Owls. With Christopher Nolan comes Johnathan Nolan and he gets the extra dollar. I wanted to make Batman Beyond with Bale, but I couldn't really make it work.

    I had to find someone who could plausibly be Gordon's daughter. I suppose you could just make her Oracle.
