Red Mars

director shortlist: Joseph Kosinski, Mamoru Oshii, Kathryn Bigelow, Alex Proyas, David Lynch, or Denis Villenueve
producer shortlist: Ridley Scott, Gale Ann Hurd, Steven Spielberg, Raffaella de Laurentiis, Damon Lindelof (even though i hate him)
Jeff Cronenweth is the cinematographer
scored by Vangelis
i write the fucking screenplay. they give me feedback and i go back, but i write every draft.

Jared Leto as John Boone
Christian Bale as Frank Chalmers
Olga Kurylenko as Maya Toitovna
Noomi Rapace as Nadia Chernyshevski
Amy Adams as Ann Clayborne
Zhang Ziyi as Hiroko Ai
Jean Dujardin as Michel Duval
Ryan Gosling as Arkady Bogdanov
William Fichtner as Sax Russell
Gary Oldman as Vlad Taneev
Oscar Isaac as Desmond Hawkins
Jessica Chastain as Phyllis Boyle

budget would need to be in the $300-$400mil range, the movie would bomb and make back about $200mil but it would be hella fuckin epic and become a cult classic

Thoughts?
I am not really sure with the director, alternative could be Von Trier, Lynch or really anyone that isnt complete hack.

Also these are pretty much the only characters that i remember something about so not sure if someone major is missing.

I was thinking that Shia might actually be decent fit for Artyom

And making this got me sad that we will never get Metro or Stalker vidya movie

>>65005974
im shocked it hasn't been done yet. shocked. that post was half joking half serious, but if we wanted to be serious we could get it done for 80-120mil, tie certain big names to the main roles (probably boone, chalmers, toitovna) and get more obscure actors in most of the others, market it properly, guarantee it still takes 200+.

my only real fear is they butcher it.. it does have complexities that don't translate easily to film and the potential for a dune-tier disaster.

i think no one really wants to take the challenge and maybe even if someone did, the studios would be wary of supporting it with the budget it would need, and for good reason. oh well, we'll see

It would require a sense of tact and a deftness of touch, especially to deal with many of the supernatural elements without making it seem like a corny Clash of the Titans ripoff. At the very least I have absolute confidence in Sean Bean's competence in reprising the central character and basically carrying the entire movie with his charisma.

Nah, Lynch is one of my favorites, but he wouldn't be a good choice at all. Kubrick would honestly have been a great choice, he could really drive the whole anti-objectivist point home.

I really don't know what living director could do it justice. Maybe PTA, but he makes his political messages much more subtle.

Not neccessarily my 'ideal book' adaptation but I still think it would be neat to see a live version of this. Maybe they adapt it to target a more adult audience considering most of the people who have read it are now past 20.

It could work as two movies or as a tv mini series. The movies would leave out the third book, where as the tv mini series could leave it and also include more overall story.

There were more characters, but I basically got the main ones.
