Awright. Even this news is like, FRESH off the presses, which means Universal probably has about anywhere from 3,6+ years to do anything (of the rights of 11-books). And while the producers were named, that means the search is on for a screenwriter and a director. Then…there will be probably be script re-writes…blah…blah…blah.
But I’m gamed to play the “Who Can Be Elric?” Game. Here’s the list: Johnny Depp (cuz the man’s a freakin’ chameleon and a good actor), Neal McDonough ( my choice for Captain America, but he’d be good in this, too), Gerald Butler (Dracula 2000 and Reign of Fire - tall, lean, decent actor - would easily look the part); Johnny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Dracula 2000 - another tall actor, who could at least look the part).
But the one actor that would have been best as Elric? Brandon Lee sigh. He’d been perfect.
