Over five years ago we featured a small batch of posters in a series called The Ones That Got Away. In the poster series, artist Fernando Reza and his Fro Design Company label created some awesome posters for movies that never came to be. Whether it’s because they got stuck in development hell or lost funding at the last minute, these movies simply never became a reality. The first series included posters for the likes of Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon and Orson Welles’ Don Quixote, and now a second series has been unveiled and made available for purchase.

Most filmmakers have projects they want to make but never get around to. Maybe they can’t get the funding together, maybe they lose the rights or maybe they pass away. There are famous examples of this all the way through history from Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon and Orson Welles’s Don Quixote to newer projects like James Cameron’s Spider-Man, Tim Burton’s Superman and Peter Jackson’s Halo. The list goes on and on.
Artist Fernando Reza, who also did these cool TV Band posters, asked the question, “What If?” What if Stanley Kubrick finished Napoleon? What is Orson Welles finished Don Quixote? And he answered those questions with his new set of film posters called The Ones That Got Away; Four posters including those two aforementioned films as well as Alfred Hitchcock’s Kaleidoscope and David Lean’s Nostromo.
