Default Horus Heresy Movie

If the heresy was ever made into a movie which actors could we have to play the main roles ? such as The Emperor, Horus and the Primarchs, this should be rather interesting so lets have a go. JD

EDIT : This should probably have been put in television and movies, can a mod please move it ? sorry ! JD

I have no specific actors in mind but I think it would be best if they gave the same sort of CGI and mood that they had in 300. The Slow motion and beautiful scenery against that brutality.

Oh Gandalf (the actor) as that one angel Primarch that gets killed. Sorry about the obscene vagueness or lack of knowledge.

Is fancy bread in the heart or in the head

Nah, the angel primarch is Sanginius, primarch of the Blood Angels. He fights Horus before the Emperor does.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

yeah, the emperor is the guy in the golden suit trying to look all buff and everything while Horus laughs on Sanguinius' corpse. And there's a bunch of the Emperor's Custodians? around Horus.

the troops in grey aren't custodians to my knowledge, custodians wear gold armour, carry huge halberds and have a huge plate that protects the neck, like this: found here: http://belloflostsouls.blogspot.com/...-pictures.html I'm sure they're just a space marine legion, the art is trying to show the good and bad, with horus and his legions, and the emperor and his loyal men.

Back to business!

Moving back on topic Orlando Bloom with long blonde hair like in LOTR would make a pretty good sanguinius, and maybe Mel Gibson as Roboute Guilliman, and Keanu Reeves as Konrad Curze ?

Konrad Kurze should be Marlon Brando =(. Shame he's dead. Tyler Mane should play Logan Grimnar.

Brad Pitt as Fulgrim (due to Fulgrim loving his appearance a little bit too much me thinks)

Chuck Norris as Leman Russ

Gerald Butler as Abaddon

Morgan Freeman as the narrator (even if there's no narrator in the script)

Samuel L Jackson as The Emperor

I could see Sean Connery playing the Emperor.
I would put Willem Defoe as Horrus.
