Wow, while browsing youtube I found this amazing video of a warhammer 40k movie, the movie isn't in development this is just an idea of what a movie might look like. I thought it looked great, especially when the drop pods left the orbiting carrier at the start, take a look its only 3 mins. post what you thought about it, here is the link
YouTube - Ultramarines Chant
EDIT: I also found a link to a petition asking GW to either release rights to fan 40k movies or make an official one themselves, It has nearly 10k signatures, I signed will you?

I have heard about this but i thought they stopped after they couldnt get the funding...
yes they stopped, but not through lack of funding, they had the money and made about half the film then relations between them and GW broke down which resulted in the ban of all fan movies by GW.
The movie you are refferring to is called Damnatus, made by German 40kers, I found its trailer for you to watch, this is the one GW axed...

There's a couple of reasons we'll never see a GW film...
1) Licenses (specifically that to print money) - GW will never give the licence to make mercendise to anyone else. Most film companies aim to make their profits on the tat that gets released along with every major film like lunchboxes, t-shirts and socks.
2) Capacity - The Lenton factory could not handle the amount of demand that would be generated by a 40k movie. At the moment, this is a niche hobby - a film would cause the popularity of GW games to skyrocket, leading to a shortage of goods. They can't afford to expand their facilities, and will never allow anyone else to make stock for them.
