Who would you cast for the Eva movie?
I, knowing nothing about the movie world, don't really care, as long as the cast is attractive, and bare at least some resemblance to the original characters.
But Sean Connery should play Keel Lorenz. 8)

I realize this topic appears quite often, but there are still people who may not have been able to give their 2 cents before. And it's not as if this board is already flooded with topics...

ugh, another cast thread. I guess it was inevitable.

I think Britney Spears should play Misato.

I think they should scrap the live action movie idea, and back a dumptruck full of money up to Anno's house and ask him nicely to write another series.

Guys abd Girls I do not see this movie as happing im sorry I just don't think that the ideas show in eva would translat well into an american live action movie.

My sentiments exactly. I'm very tempted to cut to the punch and close this topic, but I'll allow it to remain open so long as it remains productive. Serious posts only. No casting people into roles for humour value.

We've all heard the joke that Jay Leno should play Fyutsuki.... we don't need to hear it again.

You're just doing that to make me mad, right? : P

Moving on... I think that Lucy Liu should play Misato. Why? Because I think she has great range as an actress and that she could pull off the all the different parts of Misato's character. And she's hottie like Misato, but that's beside the point.

Well, actors like Daniel Radcliffe, Hillary Duff, and Frankie Muniz are instantly ruled out. Its been stated that the child characters will be age appropriate, in fact, they may even be under-casted so that they won't out-grow their parts in the event that there are a series of movies.

Take Harry Potter for example, all the kids are getting too old to play their parts.

I don't know if someone else thinks like i do, but if an Eva movie is ever made, and if it's going to be a good movie, i don't think it should be with actors, or not even a live action movie.
I like the way it was made "final fantasy: the spirits within" (as a movie by itself, not if it sucked comparing it to the game of whatever).

I think should be with CG carachters.

Now you can kill me :wink:

The CG idea sounds like a better option to me, and one thing that could help it a little is to get a indie director with knowledge of the series. I am usually more impressed with a movie when the director actually cares about the project and tries to follow the story than when a big name comes in and puts his own spin on it.

If they made an announcement saying that it was going to be CG animated, with visuals on par with The Spirits Within, I would be tickled pink. CG just seems so much more promising for this medium. Its still animation, but its close enough to realism without being corny.

Although, that would kind of defeat the purpose of being LIVE ACTION. And no, they can't put CG characters into live action footage, the characters are by far the most difficult part to design and animate. If they go with CG characters, they go with CG everything.

Though I would love to hear a lot of people's voices with certain characters.

Gillian Anderson voicing Ritsuko comes to mind. That would be amazing.

I admit, I'm excited to hear a live action adaptation is in the works - feel free to begin the beating - although I still have my doubts. At least it's nice to know I'm not the only one with reservations regarding the project...I just fear it'll become some 3 hour long, special affects-driven, gory T&A fest :?

The idea of a CG version of the American Evangelion film has crossed my mind, as it apparently has for many others here, since this whole thing was announced. If the film makers do indeed plan to change the locale of the story and ethnicities of the characters just make it into a live action American film, perhaps they should scrap the project because I don't see the point of deconstructing a story just to give it a qoute/unqoute 'international' feel.

I can appreciate the tweaking of things in order to make the story more accessbible to the average moviegoer, but that doesn't justify artistic slaughter just to suit American tastes. Perhaps I'm just hostile but I've seen too many good stories go down the tubes when they make it to the big screen. It just seems to make more sense to make a CG film rather than live action. For one, by animating the characters as they were originally designed in the series, the film makers can preserve the characters' aesthetics and circumvent the entire issue of trying to tweak the characters for live action casting, which is obviously the case if it's already been decided the cast will be caucasian.

I hope that made sense, because it's late and I'm apparently rambling :shock: And on a final, completely pointless note, I'm with Eva Monkey on this one - hearing new portrayals of the beloved Eva cast from a new set of actors in a CG film would be an awesome experience.

I know who needs to be Gendo in the movie, but he is not an actor and would never do it, but the man is Gendo:

Tony LaRussa.

Well I think, that if they did do live action Eva movie...I hope to god that they don't pick the kid, that played Harry Potter to play Shinji. Just the thought of that just makes my skin crawl, and you they will if they make a live action American Eva movie. But the American's they just might pick the all star cast, that includes 25 year old acters playing 13 year kids. Thats been done, okay maybe not 25 year old acters playing 13 year old kids, but you do get 20-25 year olds playing 15-18 year old part and that makes me made. :x
I hope that its CG, that would be cool to see, every body has seen the cartoon, why not CG it.
Stop pissing me off - I'm running out of places to bury the bodies.

He hasn't performed in anything. He's the manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. But I'm telling you, he IS Gendo. Right down to the attitude.
