L.A. Noire: The Movie

Recommended Posts

ThatBenGuy

I honestly think that if Max Payne was adapted into a film back in 2008, then so should L.A. Noire.

 

Mark Wahlberg as Cole Phelps, I honestly think he'd be good as this role, especially considering he also played as Max Payne and a secret agent in The Other Guys

Will Ferrell as Ralph Dunn, this actor is a real card, thus making this a good role for him. Plus, he also played as a secret agent in The Other Guys with Mark Wahlberg

Chris O'Donnell as Jack Kelso, he'd be good for this role, considering he was in Max Payne as well as NCIS

Samuel L. Jackson as Gordon Leary, I know SLJ is black, but I think he can still do for this role

Jim Belushi as James Donnelly

Bill Murray as Lachlan McKelty

Vince Vaughn as Roy Earle

Josh Duhamel as Rusty Galloway

Chris Pratt as Herschel Biggs

Dwayne the Rock Johnson as Stefan Bekowsky

Adam Sandler as Mickey Cohen

 

What do you guys think of this? Is it a good idea or bad idea? Also, who would you guys like to see act in this movie?

I think it's a bad idea because you're trying to cast new actors instead of the ones who already played them ingame. Why isn't Aaron Staton Cole Phelps? Why is Gordon Leary suddenly black and not Irish? Adam Sandler as Mickey Cohen? Do you want this to be a detective movie or some sh*tty summer comedy?

Well, detective movies can sometimes be comedies too. The Other Guys was one such example. And also, I don’t know who voiced Max Payne in the original game but I’m about 99.99% sure it wasn’t Mark Wahlberg like it was in the film. Also, there’s nothing wrong with someone playing a role that isn’t their ethnic group. The reason I thought of Adam Sandler as Mickey Cohen is based on the fact that they’re both Jewish. I’ll admit though, you do have a point that many of these actors typically don’t play serious roles. But a detective movie doesn’t necessarily ALWAYS have to be 100% serious? After all, there’s nothing wrong with a movie doing a little silly and serious mixing.

That still doesn't answer why you think new actors should be brought in as opposed to the original actors. This isn't The Warriors where the thing you're replicating is 40 years old or whatever, most of the actors in LA Noire still look like their ingame counterparts. That said, what could possibly be gained from not casting Staton as Phelps or Vaughn as Leary? It's like you don't even want this hypothetical movie to be anything like the game, it's like you want this hypothetical movie to be as big of a flop as the Max Payne movie or even the Postal movie.

ARTHUR.

Terrible casting and why turn it into a comedy? It would completely kill the authenticity that Team Bondi created with post-war Los Angeles and the dreamy atmosphere woven into noir movies which this game pays homage to.

If you want to wet your tongue with some noir, check out L.A. Confidential or Chinatown. If you're looking for something a little more light-hearted, I believe The Nice Guys, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang are right up your alley.
