ye it would, but there is no way GW would be able to afford the kind of movie it would have to be (cgi e.t.c).

Plus, no film studio would take the project on, due to the huge risk involved, i.e the film may be a flop. Furthermore, I can't see GW giving the creative direction of their fluff to some executive producer or film director.

Sorry it just ain't going to happen.

You could always watch "Inquisitor"




Gotta love the Canon Fodder style intro music.

I doubt a film would ever happen but it's a great excuse for your fantasy casting ideas :-)


Rogal Dorn - Daniel Craig
Sanguinius - Ryan Phillipe
Angron - Ron Perlmen
Horus - Russell Crow

that's a few off the top of my head

I would love to see it happen.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Ahh would be lovely to see it happen. GW should do it anyway, forget the risks. The CGI for the DOW II trailer and the cinematic for Mark of Chaos are gorgeous. I'd happily sit through a 90 min film with those graphics.

Fuck CGI go all out and do it properly otherwise these things suffer. Weve been seeing more and more movies done green screen style nowadays why not make the investment. I personall think John Malkovich would make a brilliant Horus. And the Guy who plays Ajax in Troy would be a crazy assed Leman Russ. It could totally be done, but the company would need to have enough faith to pump in alot of money, just like lord of the rings and they would have a huge hit on their hands i think, not just with 40k fans but in general, a galactic wide civil war, Brother Against Brother, space battles big name stars who wouldnt want to watch that?
