Re: Gemmell Movie?

Another suggestion was Abjorn Riis, (the old guy in 13th Warrior.)

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Asbjorn Riis is a fair call for an older Druss in Legend. I'll have to watch 12th Warrior again this weekend to gauge the size and voice of the man. Who would you pick for a younger Druss Gareth?

Re: Gemmell Movie?

To be honest I really dont have a clue currently, no one seems to match the idea I have of him. So it may well have to be an unknown. But as I said thats my opinion.

For Skilgannon I do like the idea of Steven Brand. (the bad guy in the Scorpion King) But this will probably cause a lot of arguments again, lol.

He's not a bad choice.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

I've never given much thought to Skilgannon. He'd be fun to watch on the big screen, especially with Druss in the same scene. Who would play Sieben? He'd have to be a ladies man, exuding confidence and charm. Sieben goes bald when he's older, so he'd have to look good as a bald guy as well. I always thought of Rowena as Jennifer Connoly, but the book describes her as rather plain - and I dont think Jen is plain.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Skilgannon might make the most sense if you wanted a pretty type for the girls?

Re: Gemmell Movie?

The Damned books would make awesome movies because of them having Druss, Skilgannon, and other cool characters too. Christian bale could play Druss, lol. He could just magically become big enough. He normally does.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

I think we are more likely to see either Legend as its so popular and could be worked well with CGI or the shannow books, as western style films are easy to do.

although the rigante may also be another option, but looking at the cockup they made of arthur...im not sure i want to see this is would be like a cross between Brave heart and arthur ...all action and no substance.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Nar, I think the Rigante books are most likely to be moviefied - if on the extremely unlikely event that any of them are. The Rigante books would appeal to a wider audience-not just DG fans.

Personally I hope they never make any of his books into a film. They (the movie Industry) would ruin them.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

i like the suggestion for skillgannon! i want to see his characters in fim but again i find myself in agreeance with wild, they would get ruined and therefore dont think they should be made

Re: Gemmell Movie?

do you know what i would give jon rhys davis a chance to play druss as he is basically a taller gimli if you think about the way he is portrayed and the art work on the front of the book for legend. Id like to see winter warriors done it was the first david gemmell book i read i thought it was a good story too.
