    Default If Code Geass became a US live-action movie...

    The initial scene is captioned with a date, informing the viewer that we are being shown the "American colonies" and it is the beginning of "Washington's Rebellion". Preparations seem to be going well until troops storm in to arrest them, followed by two men who are identified as the Duke of Britannia and Earl Benjamin Franklin. Washington calls Franklin a traitor and Franklin in turn calls him a fool as he is dragged off into the street. The soldiers shout "All Hail Britannia", echoing out.

    Cut to what appears to be a different version of the same street, captioned
    2017 a.t.b.
    Pendragon City, Capital of the Holy Britannian Empire
    An oddly familiar voice shouts "ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!", and the anthem of the same name begins to play (with comprehensible lyrics this time ).
    The camera pans around a massive chamber filled with cameras and spectators, to which a man is dictating a speech. He speaks of how God is a lie invented by the weak and how the Britannian Empire grows ever more glorious as it conquers new territories. In between pans we see newspaper cuttings and clips of the Britannian military.

    Finally we see the speaker's face. A wigged Patrick Stewart throws up his fist and shouts "ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!". As the crowd rises in chorus, roll title sequence.
    CODE GEASS

    Cut to Ashford Academy where the students who assembled to watch the Emperor's speech are starting to leave, focusing on one dark-haired young man, Lelouch Lamperouge. Lelouch speaks boredly with a few other students, before being approached by Milly. She says that she thought Nunnally would want to come and hear the speech, because, you know... Lelouch becomes visibly annoyed for a moment, then says that Nunnally wasn't feeling well this morning. He is then called away by Rivalz. Before the scene ends we see:
    Ashford Academy
    Area 11, Former Nation of Japan

    Cut to a group of Japanese men walking quietly down a hallway, accompanied by a brown-haired young woman of ambiguous ethnicity. All are armed. They peer around a corner to see a truck being loaded. In subtitled Japanese one says "There's the gas." The girl replies "I've got it", takes aim at a guard and fires.

    Back to Lelouch. A man shouts "Damn Eleven!" and... you know how the chess scene goes. He defeats the guy in three moves, intercut with the terrorists escaping in the truck, until Rivalz's praise of Lelouch's victory ("the next Napoleon!") is interrupted by the truck crashing a short distance away below them.

    Things go pretty closely to the first episode of the series, except that the first victims of Lelouch's Geass maintain control long enough to shout something like "It can't be! You're the Lost Prince, who ran away from home!" The scene where Lelouch Geasses Viletta is left out, though we get a brief shot of her recovering in an alley and shaking her head in confusion.


    Aaaand that's all I've got for now. Any ideas on other actors who could work for such an adaptation?

    David Tennant should be in there somewhere, ideally as an antagonist character since he doesn't seem to get as much screen time in those roles.

    Elijah Wood is sadly too old to be Lelouch.

    He plays Lloyd obviously.

    Have you seen Patrick Stewart in egotistical villain mode? It wouldn't even be the first time he's played an Emperor.

    I did consider that, but I suspect there are other roles that he could do well (Prince Clovis for example, though that falls into the low screentime category)

    The real question is, who can we find for the role of Sir Guilford (should be Guildford, but Code Geass couldn't spell it correctly- I should know, I was born there).

    The Emperor of Britannia demands the unrivaled King of Ham.

    Also you want to put hair on Patrick Stewart, you evil evil man.

    I can't think of his name but the guy that played in Lt. Hicox (the Brit) in Inglourious Basterds came to my mind.

    Michael Fassbender was Hicox. I'd personally like to see a HP alum playing Lelouche, not one of the main characters, but you know what I mean.

    Summer Glau as C.C. just for lulz sake.
    Halle Berry could probably do a good Villetta.
    Matthew Goode would be perfect as Shinizel, he was basically Ozymanidas anyways.

    The biggest problem with this is that there aren't very many Hollywood Asian actors to play the Japanese characters without causing another train wreck like Last Airbender.

    Edit: I'd support Patrick Stewart as the Emperor over Brian Blessed. Although it will mean losing the hair (which is a physically impossible style anyways) it does give us a superior actor who is viable as a villain. Blessed is just too good natured for the role.

    The Emperor's hair is styled like a judge's wig anyway. Why not just make it obvious that he's wearing a wig? (as in, he takes it off on occasion)

    As for Asian actors, anywhere Masi Oka could be used? What about George Takei? (I figure he could be Genbu Kururugi or that guy hiding out in Mt. Fuji I can't remember the name of)
    EDIT: Actually, they could use anyone for Genbu really. He shows up in a single scene and doesn't speak any English. Heck, they could even use him for a cameo from the original cast.

    EDIT: If Elijah Wood can't work as Lelouch, what about Schneizel? Recall that the guy is supposed to seem fairly harmless at first.

    Actually I would make the chess part the same as the anime, not showing the moves except the king being moved forward and the reaction at then end of the Noble. Chess doesn't work that way unless your opponent is brain dead or you don't see the match happen.

    As for actors I always pictured Lloyd as Jim Carrey.

    Speaking the Emperor's hair (...never thought I'd say that), what do you guys think would be acceptable changes for the transition to live-action.

    There are episodes that could be completely eliminated like the one with Arthur stealing Zero's helmet.

    Keeping it the same. It would be pretty cool to see the actors actually cosplay as the characters and keeping the visuals as close as possible to the anime.

    So lots of CG backgrounds...

    As for clothing, I would like the clothing to be similar but not to look like they are costumed.

    Either that, or good sets. I think it would look quite awesome to see how they would transfer the style of the anime onto real actors.

    Another small wrench into the pile: DiCaprio is a fan, and while he would most likely take a back seat to the production if he was involved, who could he play?

    Nah, make him Mao (who is now based out of the Geass Research place, and is used by Lelouch to find it). Or maybe Jeremiah Gottwald. The latter might also work for BRIAN BLESSED.

    Including the swimsuit-style suits for female pilots? They might have trouble with that. Especially since one is worn by a kid.

    What about C.C.'s? hair? Green or black?

    Point taken. Although none of them were really "kids".

    I ended with my Geass + R2 run two days ago and I don't remember this. IRC C2 had a rather conservative outfit while in Mecha and the only other female I remember was Cornelia who also had a very conservative outfit.

    Also, C2 hair is green. I favour odd colours for hair.

    Do a GIS for Viletta and you'll see some pics of her suit.


    Also, someone needs to shop up a picture of Summer Glau as C.C.

    And as a Hollywood movie, this would presumably be in 3D. Such an opportunity cannot be squandered. It is unthinkable.

    Summer Glau does in fact have DAT ASS.

    Green, it's an obvious cue from the get go that she's not quite human. Although I'd have to say that Cornelia and Euphimia need to be turned into more conventional red heads.
