bill nighy is good idea, but man, underworld was so bad. it was like blade without any good bits.
I used to think this years ago, before his name got thrown around for every role in existence, but I think David Boreanaz (sp?) would be great for Tigra...
I always pictured Tigra as Val Kilmer.
I know, it was pretty f**kin bad... But I did say he LOOKED like Mumm-Ra in it. Acting wise, he doesn't have to be like he was in Underworld (though his acting didn't influence how much the movie sucked; it sucked mostly because of the script), but he sure has the skills for it...
I used to think of him, too...
If i remember right isnt Tigra the mature one of the group? It makes sense to have someone older. Kilmers a fantastic actor.
Panthro- Ving Rhames
But no way Paul Walker or Scott Speedman should be allowed near this. They are dull, wooden and charisma free.
Underworld got a f **king sequel can you believe that?
I even forgot Speedman was in Underworld... Despite that, I actually think he's an okay actor. He was actually good in this movie called My Life Without Me, or something like that...
I'm not surprised Underworld got a sequel, though. If Charlie's Angels had a sequel, ANYTHING can get a sequel...
Speedman just seems v dull, i think we need a charismatic young actor for a role like this. Possibly an Unknown.
Maybe Matthew McConoughey as Tigra?
Dunno about McConaughey as Tygra. I always thought of Tygra as a sort of cool and collected kind of guy. McConnaughey has yet to play the type. I guess I'm just trying to play it safe.
And about Speedman... Well, that's just a matter of opinion. But since I'm bored right now, I'll try to think of someone we can all agree on...
Yeah I like Bill Nighy for Mumm-Ra too but Tim Curry has the voice. Another one would be Tim Roth or Hugo Weaving... Billy Nighy could be Vultureman too but my top pick for him would be Christopher Lloyd.
Lion-O is kinda like Mr. Bean... He's a child in an adults body... So you need someone with height, a good build, someone who can be serious but also be rather child like at the same time and have that child like cockiness and curiousness coming through...
How about Brendan Fraser?
Cos you also need someone with quite a powerful voice so you can get the full effect when it comes to the 'Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, THUNDERCATS!' bit...
Viggo Mortensen would probably be my top pick for Tygra but he'd cost too much.
And I liked Underworld
Billy Nighy has a cool voice too, from what I recall... Tim Roth's a GREAT choice. Good call! But for some reason I can't really see Weaving in the part. I've always thought he'd be a cool Martian Manhunter, though (just think Elrond instead of Smith, hehe).
I agree with what you said about Lion-O, and though I've always seen him as a 20 something, Fraser actually isn't a bad choice, if he didn't over act it. But, like Mortensen, he'd also cost too much.
THUNDERCATS - HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
He he, that must have been some good gear you were smoking when you watched it.
im just waiting for Orlando Blooms name to get mentioned,
you know the big black werewolf guy was the writer of the Underworld movie?
Nope, i see hes as good an actor as a writer then. It was a v v average movie, all style no substance, too long, no character development and a poor, unchrasimatic male lead. On the plus side, it looked good.
I cant believe it made way more money than Equilibrium which was much much better IMO.
Yeah Equilibrium was a lot better and I wasn't smoking anything... It wasn't a great movie or anything but I just liked it... as a popcorn flick, it's alright.
You mean for Lion-O? He was one of my picks back on page 2 or 3...
Lion-O: Paul Walker, Scott Speedman, Hugh Jackman, Orland Bloom, Brendan Fraser... Maybe Casper Van Dien
If you want an unknown, Hugh O'Gorman - Burly the Troll from 10th Kingdom...
Tygra: Viggo Mortensen, Hank Azaria, Michael Shanks
Panthro: Ving Rhames (perfect for the part), Christopher Judge or the guy who played Wharf from Star Trek: TNG
Cheetara: Tea Leoni, Amy Jo Johnson
Willey Kat: Jeremy Sumpter
Willey Kit: Dakota Fanning, Michelle Tratchenberg
Jaga: Sean Connery, Bernard Hill
Claudius: Donald Sutherland, Brian Blessed
Snarf: CGI and get some good voice actor to do it, maybe Frank Oz
Mumm-Ra: Tim Curry, Billy Nighy, Frank Langella, Gary Oldman, Hugo Weaving, Ian McDirmond, Tim Roth
Mumma-Ra Transformed: Depends who you get to play Mumm-Ra really cos Mumm-Ra is a decrepid, kinda hunched over guy who isn't very itimidating... But when he transforms he becomes a bigger, stronger, more intimidating guy... But I'd say Ron Pearlman.
Slithe: John Leguizamo (He was the Clown in Spawn and IMO would make a really good Slithe), Jack Black
Jackalman: Mathew Lilard
Monkian: Michael Jai White, Brendan Fraser
Vultureman: Christopher Lloyd, Bill Nighy
These of course, are picked without thier costs in mind...
not bad picks vapor....
Although i think makin a live action film would be a bad idea i'd still be the first one in line.
why would it be bad ...
i was talking about live action/cgi
final fantasy kinda thing
I think a live thing, with good make up, cast, director and script would be awsom
im workin on a trailer, not a video, but in script format, i got it in my head
Lion-O: an Unknown
Tygra: Val Kilmer or Matthew McConoughey or Owen Wilson.
Panthro: Ving Rhames (perfect for the part) i agree
Cheetara: Amanda Peet
Willey Kat: Jeremy Sumpter
Snarf: CGI and get some good voice actor to do it, Steve Zahn
Mumm-Ra: Ron Pearlman is great idea, why not have him for both IMO.
Paul Walker as LionO sounds good
But for how he should look, I vote for something like this.
someone also said Hugh Jackman, he might work
Yeah I thought about him for both parts of Mumm-Ra and he could probably do it... so If they could get him, it would be cool.
What does everyone think about the costumes?
Like should they be like in the cartoon or should they get like an 'upgrade' and be more like in that picture Phantomex posted or should they be more lion-cloth-ish?
I quite like the sorta 'upgraded' version in that picture...
Somehow i don't think blue underwear would work in a movie. Possibly an update, but as much in keeping with the origonals as psooible.
Oh and do you know that a trillogy is in the works, started feb 2003?
