madgonad: QT_3.14159: thecpt: madgonad: thecpt: madgonad: If this means a live action KotOR, I'm okay with this.

/Kate Beckinsale was born to play Bastila Shan

And bill Pullman as Carth. Might be too old now though

Carth isn't supposed to be that young. Remember, his son was a young adult at the Sith Academy.

Yeah I forgot about that plot point. He might be able to pull it off with some good makeup and physique making wardrobe. Still have to cast jolee, the voice for hk, Malik, and gang but those two would be a good start.

/forget how much I loved that game at times. Still able to remember the names

Kate is getting much too old to play Bastila. She's supposed to be 18 or something. They'll have to find a new British hottie born to play the role. And I always wanted to see someone like James Marsden as Carth... and Christian Bale would be AMAZING as Revan, but he's probably overdone at this point and probably getting too old himself.

But, I soooo want a live action KotOR TV series... with lots of flashbacks to the Mandalorian wars and a really good hearted, but completely crazy Exile.

I'll take Karl Urban as Atton... though he's probably not young enough either... *sigh*

/preferred KotOR 2
//Not for the story itself, but for the potential

Atton isn't all that young either. Certainly a darker character. I liked KotOR2 a lot too. The original ending was almost completely different if you didn't know. A lot of that ending is actually on the damn disk - audio included. Your NewB jedi go after Treya without you and get their asses kicked. Torture...death...a much better ending. If your compatriots didn't love you, you were gonna suffer through the end. They are both great stories and were a ton of fun to play.


Mark me down for the "actually a bigger fan of Kotor 2." Where kotor 1 added to the starwars universe and made a long long long time ago believable, kotor 2 added so much depth and depression to the universe and right fully so. An entire galaxy torn apart by war and that game showed characters with figurative and literal scars. Plus, you could have an absolute hottie play Visage. Anyways I love Kreia's relationship through the evil and good campaigns. No matter what her persistence on neutrality added insight into decision in the universe and throughout war. You can't just be a goody-two-shoes and expect everything to work out.

I've put this in prior threads but my dream scenario would be a trilogy:

Revan wakes up with amnesia and first movie ends at the reveal.
2nd is a flashback to the Mandalorian wars and show Revan and Malak's relationship struggles throughout
3rd goes back to Revan post reveal and is about the rest of the Sith war and Revan stopping Malak.

A fan can dream right?

They're going to make 2-3 Lucasfilm movies per year, not Star Wars.

Disney has made some crap, but they've also made some of the most awesome movies ever (Remember Touchstone was once the "adult" studio for Disney in the 1980s and 1990s). They aren't going to have singing Leia in their Star Wars films.

I think they should do a Knights of the Old Republic movie, personally.

I hope they make KOTOR movies, just because I want Maggie Smith to play Kreia while she's still active.

MurphyMurphy: Aikidogamer: Jolie Bindo

Why would Samuel L be another Jedi? We don't need to Shemp here.

If we needed someone high caliber we could use Jamie Foxx, Andre Braugher or Don Cheadle

We could go with Denzel, Morgan Freeman's voice, Danny Glover, Dennis Haysbert, or Delroy Lindo (Delroy Lindo does rhythm with Jolie Bindo!)

Or maybe add a bit of humor? We could use John Witherspoon or one of the Murphy brothers. (Maybe use both of the Murphy brothers frequently switching which one is playing Jolie without any explanation or anything?)

Personally I'd pick either Ernie Hudson or Keith David.


I forgot about Jamie foxx. He would be great. Hel,l Damon or Marlin Wayans would be good too.

What about the girl who played Hermione? She has become pretty good looking and she has that snooty I know everything down to a science. For Atton, I was thinking Steve Zhan.

KOTOR is actually an odd one, whilst Star Wars is obviously a Lucas property... the setting of KOTOR is wholly developed by well considering the recent assets transfers Electronic Arts.

You may way a KOTOR movie and it'd be all serious and straight. It'd be a video game movie fully of Jar Jar Bink's syphilis corrupted cousins dancing around.

Pariah.: Comsamvimes: PanicMan: Just remake Xwing vs TieFighter.

My body is ready.

/And my joystick
//If you know what I mean

Honestly Lucas Arts concerns me more than Lucas Film. Disney bought the games studio as well, but we haven't heard anything about what their plans are for it. I'd be more willing to try a new Star Wars product there than in the theaters.

But even more it would be cool if Disney got Lucas Arts making the non-Star Wars games again. Some of the earlier SW games were really good, but the adventure games.... :D


This actually concerns me. Most Disney games suck. They had better tell EA to fark off and get Bioware to do it with this instruction: Bioware do what you do.

ArkAngel: If I'm reading correctly, there are going to be 2-3 LucasFilm movies a year, not Star Wars movies. It'll be like most other production companies. I can't imagine they'll go beyond the three-year time period the other trilogies set. Maybe every other year now that they have the Disney muscle


Done in the second post. Subby is a troll.


I'm sure we'll see some animated Star Wars movies (like the clone wars animated series that wins all kinds of awards) but mostly this will be other IP or new IP.
 
2012-11-15 09:44:39 AM  
If Lucas was still in charge it would be:

2013: Episode 7
Mid 2013: Episode 7 Extended Cut
Late 2013: Episode 7 Directors Cut
2014: Episode 7 Remastered
Mid 2014: Episode 7 Remastered Extended Cut
Late 2014: Episode 7 Remastered Directors Cut
2015: Episode 7 Remastered Extended Directors Cut

I don't know - having Leia sing to inspire the Rebels during battle sounds like a great idea.

VTGremlin: ZeroCorpse: Consider the fact that Warwick Davis likes being paid to act and is probably sick of doing Leprechaun sequels, and you have the chance to see a new Willow movie.

Oh god, I'd love another Willow movie. And then I'm 100% sure I'd be super disappointed with the new Willow. That movie was SO GOOD.


One new Willow movie coming right up...

It's 2-3 Lucasfilm movies a year, not Star Wars. Even with the existing properties, that's quite allowable. Not to mention that Lucasfilm is free to develop new IP's if they want to.

Not quite. He's been pushing for another Leprechaun for years and went hilariously ballistic when he found out he was being replaced in the WWE Studios remake.

They could turn out 2 or 3 Star Wars films a month, and they'd still likely be better than that loathsome turd "The Phantom Menace".

Actually! There was a post on the Obsidian boards somewhere discussing Atton's age and it turns out the game writers had him at approx age 29 during the game. When I first read that I threw a giant hissy fit (I'm female and a KotOR fan fiction writer) because that makes no sense given Atton's 15+ year history of being a soldier that he gives in the game... BUT then I got to thinking how very dark it makes his character if he actually went to war at age 14... and had a blast writing a backstory reveal with my crazy Exile. So a 30 yr old Karl Urban wouldn't be too old right this minute to play Atton, no, but he would be in a few years when they actually get around to making my series.

Aikidogamer: And Judi drench as kreia in the sequel.

Probably Daniel Craig as Carth. He is good at playing a whiney biatch I kinda want to slice in half with a lightsaber.



Oh, fabulous ideas!! Daniel Craig would make a great Carth. And Judi Dench, well she's amazing in anything and would be kick ass a Kreia, though Maggie Smith would also be quite excellent!

I don't see using anyone other than the actual guy who did HK's voice for HK, though... what would be the point of that unless he's dead by then.

/if we keep talking about it, they'll eventually do it, right??

Totes. I just imagine Kevin Spacey as HK and it kind of gives me happiness. He already voiced a bleak AI in Moon, but if he emphasized the creepiness then maximum awesomeness would be achieved.

I would kind of want someone with a graver voice for Kreia though. Maggie Smith and Dame Dench are great and all, but I don't know. Maybe Linda Hunt.

If you're wanting the voice, why not just go with Sara Kestelman who voiced her in the game. She would work.

i2.listal.com

Though Dench could do the voice, I think. She has a lot of vocal range.

Spacey voicing HK could be awesome. I'm not sure who I'd want for Bao-Dur. He's also got one of those voices that's so distinct that you would almost hate not to go with the voice actor, but Roger Guenveur Smith may be getting too old to pull it off.

Casey Affleck? The voice is somewhat similar in it's softness and monotony. Don't think he would shave his head though.

Canderous Ordo is obviously going to be played by Ron Perlman. It's as much a no-brainer as J.K. Simmons playing J. Jonah Jameson.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: Achieving the quality of writing of the first three is easy. It's building a machine to reverse-age all the manchild fanboize back to six years old so that the movies are a huge, mind-shattering cultural event that is going to be hard.


YES

Yes! And it doesn't matter how old he is. Canderous is an old goat regardless.

Eh, yeah, his voice is kind of similar, but I'd rather someone with some timbre... not to mention I just can't see him as Bao-Dur. But that's probably the fangirl in me. I'll take what I can get!

I deeply suspect that person has never played one of the Lego games. Probably a 'hardcore' gamer (i.e. casual as they come) who only buys Madden and COD games... because they're so realistic.
