Re: What stories from history would you like to see made into movies?

I would like to see a movie about a cutting-edge technological arms race taking part in the middle of a war. Both sides are furiously pushing to get their new technology working, knowing the first side to field the new weapon could take an upper hand in the conflict. You could backlight the engineers and scientists struggle to complete their projects with mentions of the set backs their respective militarys have been suffering to emphasize the urgency of the efforts. Then, in a bit of crazy drama for the final scenes, you could have BOTH sides complete their prototypes and rush them into battle where they actually end up confronting each other in a battle of futuristic technologies! As for a title, how about The Monitor and The Merrimac ?
