Monkey Island movie

Postby feniix » Tue Apr 14, 2009 11:27 pm UTC

Hello all.

Let's dream a little bit.

I don't know if a Monkey Island movie would be great or not (probably would be some sort of movie with some traces of Pirates of the caribean with a twist) but who do you think would make a good role in the characters of the game?

I am putting some of the characters I can remember:

Lechuck
Guybrush Threepwood
Elaine Marley
Smilin' Stan
The Voodoo Lady

Help me remind some other characters

I say:
Lechuck: Robert Downey Jr.
Smilin' Stan: John Malkovich or Billy bob thorton.

I couldnt figure someone for Guybrush.

You deny that Pirates of the Caribbean 2 wasn't an unintentional direct homage to Monkey Island? Because I definitely labelled it as the Monkey Island movie as soon as I saw it.

Never had the pleasure to play Monkey Island.
but on the same note, POTC2 is terrible along with the third in the trilogy. The first one is only half decent to boot!

Parts of the Monkey Island games were strongly based on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, so I think you can excuse a little cross-borrowing.

The open source scummvm, (avalible for [url="http://www.scummvm.org/downloads.php"]linux/mac/pc/wii/ps/just about anything[/url]) will run the 1st two i dunno where you'll get the data files, ( id just google pirate related sites they might have it), and i have no idea how you would get it running on a wii/ps2

I know for a fact you can run it on the Wii using the homebrew channel, and you can install linux on the PS2, so it might work.
