Ultima Online: The Movie

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Morgana LeFay (PoV), Jan 16, 2009.

  1. No, there isn't really a movie that I know of. And if there is, let's all hope it is better than that Dungeons and Dragons fiasco they put out a while back!

    But the purpose of the thread, and I thought this would be fun, is to ask:


    If you could pick a Hollywood actor or actress to portray your UO character, or characters, who would it be?

    Personally, I had a tough time choosing between Katherine Zeta Jones...

    [​IMG]

    and

    Courtney Cox

    [​IMG]

    If you put a blond streak in their hair, either would probably look like Morgana LeFay...but Katherine Zeta would need blue contacts!

    (some here may have seen me in game as a blond. That is because they won't allow you to streak your hair in UO :( )
     
  2. I was thinking Meg Ryan with black hair and a streak through it, or even Jamie Lee Curtis... but then, I'd be showing my age, eh?

    How would a UO movie work...?

    Well wait, I guess it worked for LOTRO but it actually had a story <_<

    Actually the low-budget direct-to-bargain-bin sequel to the D&D movie was actually pretty good for a B- movie - felt closer to the feel of a real game.

    hmm ... actor to play Maplestone ... Andrew Robinson (he played Garak in DS9 ... not that I see Maplestone as anything like Garak aside from being a bit of an outsider, but the actor did such a good job with the character and emoting that I could see him doing a "quiet minor hero" type role - *searches around for a clip or interview* - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viNc6WbaXOs )
     
  5. well it starts out with your character walking... and then continue to walk... then they walk a little more... "oh look a mongbat!!! (vas flam)!" ... continues to walk. the end.

    :D just like in LOTR! (just a joke)

    Kurt Russell

    I've always thought that voice actors brought some of my favorite characters to life, so other great choices would include -

    Mike Judge, ala ~ Hank Hill (I Tell you what) of 'King of the Hill'
    or
    Billy West, ala ~ Fry (Hey, I have an idea. Let's do that!"), of Futurama -
    and Geeker (Do Chickens Burp?), of Project GKR

    when Orgin systems was around Richard Garriott pushed wing Commander into a movie:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wing_Commander_(film)

    I don’t know how they figured wing commander had a bigger fan base then Ultima.
    Wing commander the movie was poorly writen and was a flop.

    I expect WoW to be made into a movie sooner or latter.

    I'm basing my picks mostly on the personality of each character, and who I think would pull it off best. Also, each could easily pull off the look of each character.

    For Black Sun (Pally/Swordsman) George Clooney. A straight leading man, all business, quiet, reserved, noble.

    For Alex Kanebridge (Mage/Tamer) Johnny Depp. Based on the outstanding job he did playing Jack Sparrow. Kinda goofy, but dependable and honorable.

    For Raven Blackmoore (Theif/Fencer) Christian Bale. Cocky, scarcastic, shady, somewhat questionable morals, but a good guy to have around when things get dicey, can be a leader if forced to be.

    For Corran (Necro/Mage) Michael C. Hall from Dexter. Straight laced and stoic, but with just a hint of darkness kept tightly in check. Happy to just stay out of the way and let others handle the decison making.

    For Gordan Ramsay (Chef/Beggar) Gordon Ramsay. I based the character on the actual person, so who better to play him.

    As for my other 2 characters (A mule and a bard) I couldn't really say for sure. I don't use them enough to get a good feel for their personalities.
