View Full Version : Monkey Island Movie?

01-02-2001, 03:44 AM
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.)

So much for taking the world by storm, looks like i'll be taking it by siege.

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.

yep, the old movie casts on this site was better.

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