2000AD movies you'd love to see...
« on: 17 October, 2020, 01:17:45 AM »
Thought this could be a fun topic. I'd like to just see a movie called 2000AD. An anthology movie with a structure a bit like Cloud Atlas. Telling three or four stories. Dredd, Strontium Dog, Rogue Trooper and a future shock thing. Narratives weaving in and out of each other. Tharg occasionally narrating. Maybe one story segment could be animated... I'd love that.

I'd also love to see direct to blu ray animated films like the DC ones that come out from time to time.

Forgive me if I'm doing anyone's head in - it's just I'm really excited that I recently renewed my sub and my head is just in a total 2000AD ZONE.

Its such a shame that Flesh like stories have been done, not as well, by others meaning it seems unlikely we'll get a Flesah film for a while as that would be superb.

That's a great idea!

Slaughterbowl is different enough to the Jurassic Park films to still work. I'd watch that!

In a parallel universe we got an HBO Halo Jones series!  :D
In an age of post modernist, ironic superhero shows, like The Boys, a Zenith show also seems like an obvious choice!  :)

That's a very good idea.

Found this thread after seeing the Earl Reagan model over on the "Activities of the Trapped" thread.

Flesh & Slaughterbowl have already been mooted, and series for Zenith and Halo Jones.

The low hanging fruit of Button Man is currently in development limbo of some kind.

There have been a few monsters-in-war movies, but I still think Fiends of the Eastern Front would be great.

From the modern era, I think the slow-burn madness of Brink would make a great movie or series.

Hope... is pretty much a storyboard already, and another great mash-up concept.

The Family would be a sure-fire hit - mafia mobsters with superpowers, with a doomed romance between the mob-boss's daughter and idealistic cop. Loads of tropes to use/subvert, a nice simple narrative arc, with a suitably ambiguous ending to pave the way for a sequel.

That would be lovely.  I wonder if it should be set in the modern era rather than the 80s?  Baggy, Acid House, retro-60s fashion - I don't know if things like that could possibly be relevant to a modern audience.  It doesn't really depend on the backdrop of huge political issues like the Cold War in the way that, say, Watchmen does, so I think it may well comfortably be moved to the 2020s.

 I'm not sure if Boris would give work to a supersmart pragmatist like Peter St John, though.

Hell Trekkers, even if it is just another riff on Damnation Alley.

Admittedly not 2000AD, but give me a multi-series epic of Charley's War please!
