Re: Gemmell Movie?

I always have a pictured Sean Connery as Druss, but he is getting on a bit now (even for Druss), it's the way Druss says 'laddie' in the books, along with the charisma and grey hair that put Connery into my head. Then again I am a Scot and probably biased!

Legend. As for who'd play Druss, I've no idea.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Brendan gleeson is not stocky enough to play druss it would have to be an unknown actor, scottish obvoiusly but they would have to use a bit of cgi for the battle at dros delnoch because casting a quarter of a million extras would cost a fair bit.

Nokia would it not be better to film the rigante series in Scotland as it is clearly where it is based on in the book

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Well ideally Scotland, but anywhere with highlands, forests etc would suffice I imagine.

Brian Blessed is an awesome choice for Druss, well done whoever came up with that...


but i still wouldn't want to see a movie. unless Gemmell could cast it and approve the script, and i could help!

Re: Gemmell Movie?

For druss you would need a wrestler I think the Undertaker would probably fill the boots nicely, as he's huge but there are much bigger men out there.

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Has anyone thought of Ray Winston as Druss? i think he would be really good. (Brian Blesed and john rhys davies excelant suggsetions, but to me they seem too freindly) Also if there were to make a film, i would love to see the waylander trilogy. Waylander would have to be played by someone who can be both strong and intimidating but with a certain charm, so perhaps someone like Peirce Brosnan - for he is middleaged and looks pretty hard, lol. failing that perhaps - i know im gunna regret sayin this - but Tom Cruise?

Druss is meant to be huge, all of the writing points at him being over six foot and built like a brick S**t house

Re: Gemmell Movie?

i'm still totally sold on Brian Blessed, that's so close to how i imagined Druss looking.

No, the writeing suggests he has massive shoulders and is very muscled but in the first chronicles when he is fighting in the sand pit all the other fighters dwarf him suggesting he is not all that tall

Re: Gemmell Movie?

Re: Gemmell Movie?

I've often wondered myself about who would play a part from any book: my thoughts for Druss would be John Rhys Davies, at least for the Legend movie, as he is older, a younger Druss i don't know.
Jon Shannow Scott Glenn or Tommy Lee Jones.
Waylander Sean bean or Keifer Sutherland.

Don't you think Sean Bean would make a better Gellen?

Howabout Johnny Depp for Waylander? I think Depp would give him a nice twist. I think Edward Norton would do a good Jonas. Is John Rhys Davies the guy who played Gimli? If so I think he would make a cool Karnak.
