I could easily be a young pirate seeking adventure, with my lovely flowing long hair.

Pirates of the Caribbean II AND III now? I had heard rumours of II, but this is just great! Any more word on a Monkey Island movie yet? Or a Halo movie?

The only way a Halo movie is going to break the cycle of dreadful video game-to-film failures, is if they give complete control to Bungie, and give it a healthy budget.

I LOVE the games, but I don't want to see them stinking up the cinemas with all the other BS out there.

Yeah yeah, a payed holiday in the Caribbean would be great fun, sure. But I wouldn't like to spend every day of summer getting up at 5am to go to costume and make-up, then to spend all day in the blazing tropical heat standing around for hours and hours between takes, with the odd glimpse of a very busy looking Johnny Depp to brighten the day whilst a producer told me to "look busy" through a megaphone from half a mile away.

Okay, that's a bit bleak, and I guess it would be a great experience when all was said and done

I'd go, but they'll just get confused between me and Johnny Depp, and they'll take me for the lead role cause they wont need to pay me as much as the pay Johnny, and then the poor guy will be out of a job.

same thing happened to me when I auditioned for the 'man in the elevator role' in oceans 12.
they thought I was Brad pitt
I was so embarrassed!

I knew that guy was familiar.

I'd go audition, but I live no where near LA and plus, I don't have any of the above qualities except being unbelievably skinny.

This is true, but the Bungie people just hinted that MAYBE they'll make one, so who knows? I'd see it anyway.

Besides, there's no proof that Bungie will be involved, just like the Harry Potter books. J.K. Rowlings just like "Yeah, make a movie, whatever." and they did. Bungie might just let someone else do it.

Despite Rowlings more than usual involvement in the movies. I'm not saying they're great movies, and they're nothing on the books, but she was more involved than people think.

But with Halo, well, I'd watch it just because I could never be bothered to play the damn thing, but I've been told parts of it's story and it sounds pretty decent. There's also a book out, but to hell if I can be bothered with that, I'm trying to get into Asimov books at the mo.

Hey I have long hair, and am incredibly skinny. Maybe I should go get something aputated and head to LA.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.
