    I was venturing around the internet and found something of interest. Set for a release in 2008 is the comic-book based, conspiracy tale called XIII. The movie will star Stephen Dorff as the title role of XIII, Val Kilmer as Mongoose, etc. I don't know what to think of this yet but it sounds pretty decent, the story is amazing, the characters are mysterious which is interesting ad you follow them around through this parallel universe, everything is just awesome. Like I said, I don't know what to think of it yet but, we should always give things a shot right? But, if you have your assumptions about how this film will turn out please post them, it's XIII: The Movie.

    Awesome. I just finished playing the video game and all the while I was thinking this would make a great movie. However, Hollywood will again botch another video game remake.

    I wonder who will play the female lead? I nominate Beyonce.

    XIII = Stephen Dorff

    I usually do not like to rely on Wikipedia for info but here's the full list of cast members:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XIII_(film)
    Actor - Role
    Stephen Dorff - XIII
    Val Kilmer - Mongoose
    Jessalyn Gilsig - Kim Rowland
    Caterina Murino - Sam
    Stephen McHattie - General Carrington
    Julian Richings - Cody
    Daniel DeSanto - Tech Agent
    Barbara Gordon - Martha Miller
    Mimi Kuzyk - Sally Sheridan
    Greg Bryk - Colonel Amos
    Lucinda Davis - Major Jones

    Also, I hope that if it's possible they can make this flick sorta like A Scanner Darkly(animation wise that is) instead of just making it a sub-par, everyday, comic-book adaption. Although I really do have faith in this movie and I hope that it can somehow rise through the ranks.

    Eh? The game is based on the comic XIII.

    Nopers. Btw, Marvel has actually published XIII in America.

    Couple of links:
    Official French site: http://www.treize.com/
    Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XIII_(comic_book)

    About the movie, I think The Dorff is a miscast. :csad:

    Yes but Hollywood likely got it's first dose of this concept from David Duchovny's voice work as XIII in the game.

    Yes, and Val Kilmer is off as Mongoose.

    Really, I think that it's mostly going to come down to if they can act well in the roles they're portraying; that's the most important thing they need to get right in my opinion.

    The links only have the release date; 2008, the cast; already posted, and possible sub-title for film; XIII, XIII: The Conspiracy(I personally hope that they just stick with XIII but that's just me).

    Haha, no:grin:
    First off, it would be on a Marvel forum. Second off, as OptimusMaximus posted; the title will look alike the video game's logo.

    Some casting ideas I had:

    Dr. Johansson - David Strathairn
    McCall - Robert Patrick
    Kim Rowland - Charlize Theron
    Major Jones - Rihanna (I mean if she was a bit older and actress)
    General Carrington - Lee Marvin would have been ideal cast back in the days
    Judith Warner - Julianna Margulies
