World Lit II Giles
The Tartarus Invasion
Director- James Cameron
James Cameron has directed many great films including Aliens, Titanic, Terminator series, and the recent box office hit Avatar. He has already directed a space themed movie (Aliens) as well as numerous action movies (Terminator, Avatar). Cameron has impressive work with special effects and with computer graphics as seen in Avatar. As a bonus he has experience with 3-D, so if desired my film could be in 3-D.
Inquisitor Xavier (Tartuffe)- Tim Curry
Tim Curry is a versatile actor, capable of comedy and straight face acting. His facial structure also lends him to be capable of creepy faces and innocent faces. That’s why he is perfect for this role. He can seem innocent to those he needs to deceive and yet have this underlying sneaky atmosphere around him.
Governor Dantes (Orgon)- Brendan Fraser
Brendan Fraser is another versatile actor. He has been seen as an action actor in his role as Rick in the Mummy series, but in Bedazzled and George of the Jungle he played a goofier role. I believe Fraser will be able to act deceived 100% but then later be 100% upset about the situation. Also because of his action movies he will be able to perform any stunts needed.
Darius The Governor’s Assistant (Dorine) - Paul Bettany
Paul Bettany played Silas in The Da Vinci Code and also Geoffrey in Knights Tale. Playing Geoffrey he was both quick witted and humorous and as Silas he did some action and sneaking around. This will make him great for a quick witted assistant that can make fun of the governor without the his knowing.
Zaine a Governor Advisor (Madame Purcell)- William Atherton
William Atherton was in Die Hard and Die Hard 2. In both movies he was a character that believed himself to be right no matter what anyone else said. That is why he would be good as an advisor that believes the inquisitor is correct and even after the Governor himself sees the truth and Zaine still doesn’t believe him.
Captain Furion (Damis)- Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman is a popular action actor. He played Wolverine in the X-men series and Van Helsing in the movie Van Helsing. In his roles he has had to get quite upset at one character or another. Therefore he is experienced in being a hot headed character.
Chaplain Kelvar (Cleantes)- Erik Avari
Erik Avari has been in an advisory role in Mr. Deeds and The Mummy. Therefore he could easily play another advisor. He could be a voice of reason for the movie and it would be believeable.
Grey Knight Grandmaster Cervantes (King/ officer)- Michael Duncan
Michael Duncan has played many action roles. He is naturally larger than most other actors and is very built. This makes him perfect for the ultimate authority in the movie. His deep voice is also authoritative giving him an even tougher façade. Duncan was in Armageddon, Scorpion King, and Whole Nine Yards. In all these movies he was a tough guy, so he will be able to play my film’s tough guy very well. Plus his sheer size makes him perfect, he doesn’t need his armor to be bigger than everyone else.
Space Marines(Other characters)
Space Marines will serve as the filler characters. There are 6 space marines and all of the actors chosen for these roles have proven on the screen to be tough guys.
Space Marine Vincent- Sean Bean- Was in Lord of the Rings as Boromir and in National Treasure as Ian (the bad guy). He is a tough guy in both and I believe he would make a tough Space Marine. Space Marine Damian- Russell Crowe- Was in Gladiator, 3:10 to Yuma, Master and Commander, and Robin Hood. In all of these movies he was the toughest guy in the films. He will be a great Space Marine. Space Marine Tristan- Daniel Craig- Is the newest James Bond. Was also Lord Asriel in Golden Compass. Another tough guy actor, plus he is buff without his armor. Space Marine Martin- Gerard Butler- He was Leonidas in 300, Beowulf in Beowulf &...
