What's everyone's opinion, List the pros and cons. I'll give my pros and cons. Obviously, everyone is going to have their own opinion on the matter.

pro's - if it's Japanese, it could be similar to PGSM which is how I'd want an sm live action film to be should it need to exist heck Naoko could even make her own script to refine the dark kingdom arc to fit a movie length, I even welcome psm and sailor luna as opposed to the cons


cons - Hollywood would white wash, make it Twilight with senshi, overly focus on Usagi x Chiba and likely sen x shi
use typical same old actors like Channing Tatum as chiba, tatum is fine as an actor but I don't want him in sailor moon [all of my nope] probally a crappy director like M knight or Michael Bay, yeah that what we need moon tiara explosions destroying LA and not Tokyo and random twists and silhouettes of the youma without seeing them until the last minute and with designs so ridiculous it makes sailor guts look like morga :|
the worst? It'll loose all immersion for me, like I won't see the characters, I'll just see the actors in cosplay on screen


bottom line - as a Japanese made film = Yay

Hollywood = Nay

I'd even like her to play a role in it, even just a minor one. :D

The problem with movies converted from a series is that lots of things will be cut or diminished, mostly due to the short time of a movie. And by the time enough things are cut and the writers and directors and producers wanting to take liberties, next thing we know, we'd be stuck with a movie like Dragonball Evolution. Now a live-action tv show that isn't following the Tokusatsu pattern I could see working.

Joss Whedon (Buffy) would deliver something of epic proportions.

as long as it's not americanized, it could work. I'm completely up for a russian, italian, or german interpretation of the story.

Russian because when given to a good writer sailor moon could really shine, I've seen many a sci-fi story from their literature that captured very human concepts, concepts that could add a whole another level of depth and complexity to this story. (and definitely not for an adidas-tracksuit slav-squatting, vodka-drinking and semecki snacking gopnik Mamoru, nope)

German half because of the great scenery there, and the other half is that they are great at creating an atmosphere.

And italian, because of the history of italian filmography and dramaturgy, there is definitely potential there as well.

I'm ok with that, as long as it's not americanized I'm ok

Pro: giving Takeuchi creative control, giving her a producer credit as well as a writing credit. Chose a relatively unknown cast, put like at least one or two well known actors so it'll have some credibility.

Con: creative control might cause issues. Unknown cast might make the film underperform in the box office. If it's made in Japan, it's going to be limited to only Japanese theaters. Plus if you dub it, it might not come out well and thats if it's a live action full length film.

Age of Ultron and the leaked Wonder Woman script argue that notion.

If it were a Hollywood film, I'd put her as Queen Beryl.
Plus The sailor guardians will still be teenagers, roughly the actresses portraying them would be between 16-17 years old. Think about it, if it spawned 2 or 3 more films, said actress would be at least 20 or 21 years of age when said series is finalized. The only people I'd keep would be Michelle Ruff and Johnny Yong Bosch to voice Luna and Artemis respectively.

Heh, she can play any Asian heroines, maybe even Amaterasu & the Japanese would still like it (that's not applicable to actresses of other Asian nationalities, tho). :lol:

this for me as well Rose (I'm more afraid Tom Cruise's ugly face will pop in in a hollywood Sailor Moon movie) and if Michael Bay directs or produces it i refuse to watch it he's already destroying my childhood with his terrible movies (TMNT, Transformers, Etc.)

And if Dakota Fanning were still a child star, she could play his daughter too - I think the two could have good chemistry. :)

I always thought Alexis Bledel would make a wonderful Ami/Mercury!!! Her role as Rory Gilmore is a bit like Ami, too!
Too bad she's a grown woman now.
