I've separated the movies from the TV and Online series. This should make it much easier to search for a specific movie that's under development.

My distinction between "Under Development" and the year by year pages (which I had previously labeled "Upcoming") is whether a release date has been assigned. When I first hear about a project (maybe when a work has been optioned) I'll log it here, along with any names associated with the project and maybe a reference to the original material. Once the project has been developed to a point where a release date has been assigned, I'll move it to the appropriate Movie [Year] page.

Although they may be ephemeral, the idea that these movies may happen is pretty exciting, and I'm happy to follow along as the ideas either evaporate or congeal.
