Theoretical Oni movie :)

GlenP said:

If only they would ressurect the Oni franchise and come up with a theatrical movie, like some other video game tie-ins, who could play Konoko and other characters?  That's another thread...

I like this idea.

So here's a few off the top of my head:

Konoko - Natalie Portman
Muro - Matt Dillon
Barabas - Ron Perlman
Shinatama - Dakota Fanning

Lol.  I dunno where most of those ideas came from.  What you got?


If we don't change the direction we're going, we'll likely end up where we're headed.

Well, I don't have the time to come up with a full cast, so I guess I'll mention that geyser's choice for Konoko was Elina Lowensohn

She's in her 40s, though.  It's hard to find a young actress who can be convincingly brutal yet vulnerable at the same time.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: Theoretical Oni movie :)

I want Danny DeVito to play Barabas and Eddie Murphy to play Mukade LOL

No seriously, I'd probably kill myself if a director would do that. Or, more likely, both of us.

Re: Theoretical Oni movie :)

Okay, I had to come back to this thread and waste some precious time because I'm a sucker for fantasy casting.  So here's my line-up:

Mai/Konoko - Brea Grant   Brea_Grant.jpg
She's already volunteered to die her hair black to play Cassie Hack, killer of killers.  I think she can kick serious butt if given the chance in an action flick, and she can pull off a half-Asian look in the right outfit and makeup (which is an area that Hollywood never fails at).

Alternate Asian casting: Eriko Tamura   Eriko_Tamura.jpg
She already played one character named Mai who used guns and martial arts, why not another?



Muro - Edison Chen  Edison_Chen.jpg
I keep coming back to this bad boy in my searches and thinking "He's so perfect" and then realizing he's the same guy I was looking at before.  I literally cannot imagine a better face for Muro.



Griffin - Norm Woodel    Norm_Woodel.jpg
He played Hasegawa('s voice) in Oni, but he's got a good real-life look for Griffin at his current age.  I couldn't find anyone who actually looks like Griffin in Oni, but is the specific look that important?


Maybe I'll cast Drs. Kerr and Hasegawa later, but it's taken me too long to find just four actors!  Anyway, I don't think Kerr would be hard to cast.  Possibly that politician of adorage's would like to make an acting debut?

Re: Theoretical Oni movie :)

I really like your choices, especially Brea for Mai, just dye that hair purple, put some gel in a voila! I also think muro is a good choice smile

I can't see that being Griffin tho tongue

Re: Theoretical Oni movie :)

I was just thinking that Mickey Rourke could do Barabas (rent Wrestler, awesome movie) when I was looking for a picture I came across this from Iron Man 2, so he basically already is doing Barabas ... in a way.

Re: Theoretical Oni movie :)

Mickey Rourke is a good Barabas.

How about Larry David for Kerr?  :-p

Michael Chiklis.  Yeah, he could probably work as Barabas.

Re: Theoretical Oni movie :)

The only prob is that when hollywood makes movies out of games it sucks. Mostly if fans wrote and directed the movie with help, the game movies would be awesome, like i was thinking of a final fight movie, now that would rock

AWKWARD
but you know sometimes i mean a group of smart fans that come otgether with the movie direct and ask for help from the fans
Like if i was in charge of makin a movie about lets say...streets of rage, i would have to try and appeal to the fans and the general public, so if it was me id put up a poll on ideas i have and try to discuss them
But im gettin out of hand...for Muro i would choose an asian guy....cuz i want the char. to be of the nationality of the game...*cough db evolution cough*
But u guys have great choices smile

Hey, not bad, GlenP.  There's pics there of Malkovich with a beard that are quite Griffin-esque!  But I think Depp's a bit old to play Muro.

I'm passingly familiar with the bigger Asian stars.  Being an animé fan, one tends to learn these things.

Well, that's not what Wikipedia says wink


So guys, who will play Kerr and Hasegawa?  Any ideas?
