i know this is probably a really stupid idea, but i think a monkey island movie would be kinda funny- afterall, so many movies have been turned into computer games and vice versa, so why not monkey island? i know it probably wouldnt be the same, but it's an idea, anyone got any ideas of who could probably play parts?

Guybrush- i honestly have no idea who could play guybrush...

Elaine- Kate Winslet Possibly? I think maybe due to the red hair and firey spirit makes her a good candidate for elaine

Le Chuck- someone really really ugly, smelly, and a basic jerk who can play evil people really well

Stan- Jim Carrey? I don't know why but i could imagine him as a great stan

Voodoo Lady- i was thinking whoopie goldburg even though i dont really like her

Sword Master- Drew Barrymore, ala charlies angels style, cept with a sword and insults

they're just a few characters to begin with

anyone else got any ideas? i mean i know it will never happen but it's an idea and i think it's kinda fun to think of who could play loveable computer game characters

good idea, lets start the un-official cast of the even more un-official movie.

(warning: im a huge kevin smith fan so this is gonna either make total sence in some parts or none at all.)
guybrush-matt damon or jason lee (long hair...it could work)
Lechuck-kevin smith
H.T.-christopher loyd
Elaine: shannon doerty
Stan: ben affleck

and im spent...

mega: you are only budgeting $200,000 on a MI movie?? each of your cast members alone would want DOUBLE that as pay, common be realistic, if were gonna do this, do it right, at least a 10million budget cap. (sure lec might loose money, buw we'll be happy, and good ol' george has some pocket change to spare.)

All parties interested in a MI movie need to zip over to mi.adventuregamer.com and read the two scripts in the fan section http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif
And come on, Ted Danson HAS to be Stan.
And David Hyde-Pierce would've been a good Guybrush but I think he's too old now.
Do you know, that back in '92 when they were actually planning to make a MI movie, Leonardo DiCapprio was penciled in as Guybrush? Shudder.

why do you want Jim Carrey to play Guybrush????
He would make a much better Stan....

I agree, people want Mel Gibson or Tim Allen as Stan but Stan needs to be someone young and with a lot of energy, People like Mel or Tim would be too old to play Stan.

It would totally destroy the series. They'd never be able to pull it off properly.
