totally....so what about my Deryn suggestion?
Title: Re: if leviathan had a movie who would play in it
Post by: Straif on August 11, 2012, 12:01:40 PM
Oh yeah, she could work. They'd have to do a bit of roughing up though. She looks too...PRETTY. Deryn's a rigger, a rough and tumble badass.

As will be the case with any book adaptation. No living, breathing human can adaquitly match what we see in our minds. The human imagination is more powerful than any computer.

Of course we have an even bigger problem. We all imagine the same thing because of the illustrations, no actor's going to look exactly like them.

extremely so...especially if they didn't know Deryn was a girl...

Alek: Next!
Newkirk*to Deryn* why do all these girls keep auditioning for your part?

I don't think Leviathan should be live action. It should be either like Howl's movng Castle ( a.k.a. anime) or Coraline ( I don't know what that's called. Stop moyion or something.  :-\ )  Hollywood just does not seem like it can pull it off. I mean, look at the Hunger Games, for example.

Technically, Coraline was claymation. Like Wallace and Gromit.
And yes, they'd better fucking animate Leviathan or I'll launch a Sky Shark barrage at the house of whoever made the movie. Its one of those series that would just be a lot better animated. I was thinking they could get the guys who did Steamboy to do it.
Title: Re: if leviathan had a movie who would play in it
Post by: MonkeyButler on August 13, 2012, 03:31:19 AM
I'm thinking they really should animate it. If Leviathan becomes the next Hunger Games, this fandom is gonna have to tar and feather the jackasses who decided to ruin the series. And I will be angry.

There shouldn't be anyone who would play in it, it would have voice actors, because it would be a Studio Ghibli Hayao Miyazaki film.

HAHA, yeah. The only downside would be that it would be with Disney, because they all are BUT Disney seems to let the anime movies get away with more stuff so it could probably work.

Miyazaki's Disney works don't look anything like a Disney film. The decapitations in Princess Mononoki?

*sigh*  I love miyazaki.  It would fit leviathan perfectly.  I would just worry that they would chang it too much.  Ever seen howls moving castle?  The book is entirley different.

And if they did follow he storyline it would be amazing.

Post by: MismatchedSocks on August 13, 2012, 05:17:32 AM
I always thought Leviathan would be better live action. But if they got a studio like Dreamworks or Pixar or something, it might be good. (Maybe that's just me being in love with Dreamwork's movies.)

Hey, Dreamworks does good work.

As long as they follow the storyline and don't mess up Deryn I should be happy.

Post by: sandy5 on August 13, 2012, 06:34:48 AM
I think a movie of Leviathan could look good if the airships and stuff were in an animation similar to The Golden Compass. But, for the most part, I love the idea of a Miyazaki-style Leviathan movie.

SO true. I really hope if they ever make a movie of Leviathan, I'm worried they'll turn Deryn into some girly bimbo. That would piss me so off.

because it is too terrible not to imagine. If they ever make a Leviathan movie, I hope it's animated. Because it would suck if Leviathan became the next Hunger games

YES!!!! I watched the movie before I read the book and when I read the book I thought, "Wow, that was such a better story overall". BUT Howl's Moving Castle(the movie) was still VERY good in it's own respect.

I just don't want ANY adaptation of ANYTHING to go the way The Last Airbender did, that was a true disaster and the worst adaptation ever. I watched TLA right after I got it for Christmas two years ago, but I decided to watch it again since I have seasons 2-3 on the way from Amazon and just finished rewatching the first season. I couldn't even make it through 30 minutes.

It won't be without Luke. Killing Luke(if that's what actually happened when Luke went flying after getting stabbed through the neck with a water trident) was pretty good to make him meet with Kronos in the underworld. The kind of had to introduce the big villain earlier(I think) to keep moviegoers and nonreaders of the series coming to see the movies.
