Help with project? Please list fictional cities !

For a project I'm currently working on as part of my graduation in Graphic Design, I wanted to compile something like an atlas of fictional cities. These may be from books, legends, stories, video games, advertisements, comics, really whatever...

Fantastic Four Movie

A number of years ago (8? 10?) there was a relatively low budget movie version of The Fantastic Four made, only to be bought up, and never shown the light of day, awaiting a big-budget production in the future.

Has anyone stumbled across information of this aborted project, and does anyone know where some video of it exists (in a digital format)?
