If they made it into a film ...

Recommended Posts

Logic3

Yes, sort of a game and movie topic in one, but I was thinking what everyone else thought

 

If Half-life 1 or 2 were made into movies, or one big movie, who would you like to see as Dr. Freeman? Or Eli, Alyx, Barney and the rest

 

I've seen pics of look-alikes, and was thinking about them, but they aren't all actors ...

 

And Morgan Freeman for Eli obviously ..

 

But yeah, not really sure about the others, maybe Gary Sinise as Barney .. ?

 

Post who you think would play the parts well

I wouldn't especially want to see it as a movie, either. I don't think that the plot of Half-Life was ever a strong aspect of the game, really. I have no idea who I'd want to play Freeman, because he doesn't talk or act. Gary Sinise might be good as Barney, Rosario Dawson as Alyx, of course Morgan Freeman as that guy, and for that scientist, I really don't know.

Well, if you wouldn't want to see it as a film .. then yeah, don't post confused.gif

 

I wasn't thinking just any old Hollywood film company making it, I was thinking about Valve themselves making it ... at least that way you wont have as many doubts about it being as good as it could be

I'm pretty sure Valve, or the people at Steam, would love to do that.

 

If actors got paid by the size of their scripts though, the actor playing Freeman wouldn't get much. biggrin.gif

As gordon freeman? A young Chuck Norris (not the lame ass SNL skit), simply because as jimmy12 said...

 

 

...he doesn't talk or act.

I've only been able to approve two people for Freeman.

 

Weezer's Rivers Cuomo:

He just happens to wear similar glasses, too. Its always nice to have someone that isnt already a big name in movies.

 

Christian Bale:

Maybe not quite so malnourished... Awesome actor, anyway. Im sure he could do a great job.

 

I'm with Venom and Jimmy though, better not taint Half Life with the possibility of a crappy movie, though I can agree that I would rather have Valve take full direction of it should it happen.

Haha, I just noticed something.

 

Check out this rather cool picture of Gordon Freeman:

Now, imagine Brad Pitt with Freeman's beard, the right colour of hair and slightly different glasses:

You don't need to be a fan if the pay is right, you fanny.

Hmmm, that Christian Bale shares an uncanny likeness - He would be rather good. The possibility of fitting it into one movie, would be crazy...And the special effects would cost a lot...

Christian Bale is a tremendously talented actor, but he really doesn't resemble Freeman except for certain scenes in The Machinist.

 

If they made a Half-Life movie, I'd prefer to see it entirely in CG.

Edward Norton would be a good pick for Freeman.

That would cost much too much, and would take years (?) to complete.

But then it'll just be a half-assed performance confused.gif

Chuck Norris, definitely. It'd just add another good base of the Chuck Norris notoriety jokes that go around the internet these days.

 

@Venom: You think it would take more money than hiring huge Blockbuster movie stars? A commercial copy of a 3D rendering program, a couple dozen programmers, and a few great rendering servers doesn't cost 20 million. Then think if they cast another Blockbuster actor to play G-Man or Barney.

Well, they did make those FF movies. They didn't look too bad.

It would probably end up with a bunch of low budget randoms.

Do you not think they made enough off the sales of HL and HL2 to cover that? tounge.gif

I guess the only answer is me.

 

The only person I can see playing Gordon Freeman is me.

Seriosuly, why don't people shut the f*ck up about Chuck Norris, those jokes are old, not funny anymore, and he's used it as an opportunity to say "hey, buy my book to find out real stories about me"

 

And he's old, and doesn't look a thing like Freeman either

Calm down.

 

I loved Spirits Within, if it looked that good and they did it in CG, I'd be happy.
