    If they made the game Duke Nukem 3D into a movie who do you think should star in it and who would be the best to direct it?.
    I think Arnold Schwarzenegger would be great in the movie with James Cameron directing.

    I vote for Bruce Campbell as well. Most of the one-liners are based off his Evil dead character.

    I doubt if he'd take the job. He was furious at the borrowed lines when the game first came out. Of course, a big check might lure him, but I don't see him as being physically right for the role anyway.

    I think they should finish the damn game before they even dare make a movie. Duke Nukem Forever is celebrating its SEVENTH year in development limbo. The only movie I can see being made about DN is a documentary about how a company can take a million-dollar property and pretty much dilute all of its value by not knowing what the hell they're doing.

    I would say Campbell as well. But Howie Long would look the part.

    I've got it (and yes, the vaporware comment is sooooo right), but I've got it.

    Howie Long plays the part, but every piece of his dialog is done by Bruce Campbell.

    Genius. I should move to California. [​IMG]

    How long would it take them to make the movie though?

    I thought they already had "The Rock" for a Duke Nukem movie.

    The Rock has the Duke Nukem attitude, and physique, just not the look.

    The Rock has been attached to pretty much every picture. He's been named with Doom, Johnny Bravo and Duke. So don't believe that the Rock is in a picture until they start shooting the flick.

    CGI all the characters. A real actor would look too goofy to take seriously in a role as Duke Nukem.

    Oh I'm sure not long. Of course, they'd have to stop filming every four-to-six months to take advantage of new technologies...and then start from scratch each time.
