    Okay, if they made a Civ live-action movie, who would play the roles of all the leaders.

    Obviously Cate Blanchett and Ben Kingsley have played some of the roles before.


    As for Victoria... I know just who can play her...

    It's actually a good idea. I mean, they don't have to make it based on THE game, they can base it on a game played in civ.

    Are we talking about Sam Jackson or Christopher Walken?

    Although Sam Jackson would make a good Zara Yakob.

    I like Angelina Jolie as Boudica.

    John Rhys Davies as Louis.

    Martin Sheen as FDR.

    John Voight has previously effectivly portrayed FDR in the film "Pearl Harbor".

    John Wayne portrayed Genghis Khan Temujin in the film "The Conqueror". I'm not a supporter of the idea though.





    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3164969216/tt0049092




    Tadanobu Asano recently portrayed Genghis Khan Temujin in the film "Mongol". I'm going to try to see this movie soon. I'll tell you what i think afterwards.

    I liked Shahrukh Khan as Asoka in the film "Asoka"

    Yeah, Voight would be okay.

    I can also see:

    Jonathan Frakes as George Washington

    Brent Spinner as William van Oranje

    Tim Russ as Zara Yaqob

    Michael Dorn as Shaka

    Wil Wheaton as Peter

    Marina Sirtis as Isabella

    Roxann Dawson as Hapshepsup

    Kate Mulgrew as Cathrine

    Colm Meaney as Churchill

    and *drum roll*

    Armin Schimerman as Caesar

    It's a Star Trek Reunion/Civ Movie Extravaganza

    The intro for HRE would be the burger king hitting a football player and causing a fumble in one of those commercials.

    Alexander would hold spear garrisons against tanks by planting them in the ground JUST right.

    Cathy would look attractive (unlike actual history) but sleep with everyone.

    Isabella would look and act much like she really did. I'm your religion, no matter what it is Izzy! Honest!

    I would rather see a movie come out about each individual leader and their rule than a movie about all the leaders and have the storyline be modeled after a game of civ.

    ALthough if a movie was made of civ I think it should have 1 scene where a grup of spearmen throw their spears into a group of tanks and you see the spears just bounce off the armor. Then the turrets turn towards the now unarmed regiment, then every tank explodes.

    I think Civ4 has no plot whatsoever. SMAC has a plot. A good one. I made a thread on any ideas for a SMAC movie.

    I got an idea for two roles...

    Terry Crews as Shaka...

    ...and Peter Dinklage as Napoleon!

    You know, this is just a joke.

    In the tradition of Civ4 there should be a few actors who look nothing like the character they're portraying.
