:star: Submit your art to the correct folders.
If you accidentally forget, it's cool, we'll move it. It just helps to keep things neat and tidy. If you're not sure where to submit, please see the Submission Guidelines, or feel free to ask one of the Moderators.

:star: Theoretical Movie Cast? :star:

Quite some time ago, around 2004, there was a lot of talk about an Elric movie being made.  It was licensed by a major studio, but quickly became lost in Development Hell (much like the proposed Halo and Cowboy Bebop movies).  I gave it up as lost forever, especially since the studio with the rights to it seems unwilling to either sell the rights or develop the movie.  However, with the success of Game of Thrones, it's got me thinking about the whole thing again.  So the question is, who would you cast for this movie?  

For Elric, I think my choices would be one of these two guys:

:bulletred: First, there's Harry Lloyd, better known as Viserys Targaryen in Game of Thrones:

(Although some of you might also remember him as Baines from Season 3 of the new Doctor Who series)
I think of him first because his character was really only a few steps from being Elric anyway.  The character was nearly albino, and was the last heir to a family descended from dragons.  We know he can pull off the look, and certainly the Melnibonean attitude (he is exceptionally good at being an evil bastard).  I'm not sure how he is at being sympathetic or brooding, however, since I haven't seen much of his filmography.

:bulletred: The second, and possibly the better choice is Tom Hiddleston, whom everyone now knows as Loki:

I think that he also has the look, and we see that he can carry himself as the leader of a people, while also being misguided and brooding.  He can do the evil bastard thing, but he can also be sympathetic.  From what I've seen, he has more range.  Really, I'd be happy if either of these guys played Elric.

:bulletred: But honestly, there's something I would like to see MUCH more than an Elric live action movie.  I'd like to see whoever owns the rights to Elric give their money to MadHouse and give us a gorgeous Elric animated project.  Marvel has done this with four properties already, producing anime series for X-men, Iron Man, Wolverine, and Blade.  Another great example is Highlander: The Search for Vengeance.  But the best example of why this is an amazing idea, to me, is Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.  

Yoshitaka Amano, the man responsible for all of the original Vampire Hunter D art, also did all of the Japanese cover art, as well as a large number of interior illustrations, for the original Japanese release of the Elric books (and a good number of Moorcock's other series).  I also think that animating Elric would make it possible to include many of the more surreal sequences, such as fighting Agak and Gagak as the four champions combined.  

:bulletred: So where do you guys weigh in on the subject?  Animated? Live Action?  Who would you like to see play Elric, or any of the other characters in the series?

Hey, sorry I missed this message when you first sent it! It appears whatever problem you had was sorted out, but I checked the folders just in case, and you should be able to submit to the Gaynor folder without any problems. I appreciate you letting me know, with new clubs sometimes it takes a while to get everything set up properly. If you have any trouble in the future, please feel free to tell me, and thanks for contributing. ^_^

I'll check the Member permissions again, and see if there's anything wrong. Groups are really not user-friendly! :P
