Unproduced and cancelled projects

In 2004, Justin Chatwin shot a pilot for WB that was not picked up called Prodigy, a drama about a teenage girl who hides her music talents from her family, who are busy focusing their attention on her younger brother, a well-known prodigy. He played a supporting role opposite Kate Mara and Cody Arens.

In 2005, Chatwin was supposed to produce and star in an adaptation of Michael Turner's 1999 cult novel The Pornographer's Poem, a coming of age comedy about a teenager who enters into the world of pornography when he witnesses his neighbours engaged in sex on their back porch. Jeremiah S. Chechik has been attached to direct. Next year, the actor was set to star alongside Kristin Kreuk in Private Wars, a drama centered on three male combat veterans and their time in the hospital recovering from the war.

Two years later, Chatwin began to develop two movies: Wrench, a thriller that he co-wrote with a playwright from New York City, and The Last Rustler, a modern western, described as a cross between Raising Arizona and No Country for Old Men. He intended to star and produce alongside Bill House. Also, from 2007 to 2011, Justin was attached to star with Spencer Treat Clark, Matt Long and Jamie King in Riding the Pine, a drama directed by Jeff Woolnough about two brothers who take a road trip after one of them contracts a terminal illness.

Justin was set to reprise his role as Goku in Dragonball Evolution sequel, but the original film was a box office bomb, so 20th Century Fox cancelled the project which had the working title Dragonball 2: Reborn.

At the beginning of 2015, Chatwin has been tapped to lead the TNT pilot Breed, a supernatural drama about a series of brutal murders in the Pacific Northwest and a gifted detective who embarks on the case, employing his expertise on serial killers.
