recently i was bored and just started googling some fantasy series ive read for there movies if they had any that is. but i came to one that i dont know if i schould be happy about or sad because of who's going to play the main character. as you can read in my thread name that i found a article by www.gamingreport.com about the new movie by dreamworks based on drizzt do'urden.
heres the article:
Reports: Dreamworks is planning to produce a film staring Drizzt Do'Urden with Wesley Snipes in the title role. The movie is still 2 years or so away. That time frame may change depending on the degree to which LOTR is a success. Get ready for a new wave of fantasy movies if LOTR is a monster smash. It's a sign of how poorly heroic fantasy movies have historically performed that there are not more imitators trying to come out around LOTR. (Yeah, yeah, Conan. Name another popular success. Ator and Hawk the Slayer don't make the cut.)Number one on the supporting cast wish list is Lawrence Fishburn as Jarlaxle. WOTC/TSR was shopping an Icewind Dales Trilogy script. I've heard the decision is between trying to film from the novel or create an original story with the characters, possibly by/with Salvatore. Huge lift for D&D, Forgotten Realms, and Role-playing in general. Dreamworks hasn't made a bad movie yet. I'd love to see their creative teams take on Heroic Fantasy.
as you can see in the article that there planning to have wesley snipes play as drizzt i dont know about anyone else but i highly disagree with this decistion because iv read all the R.A. Salvatore books and drizzt is said to be small boned and such just like all the other elves even the drow.
so i want to know everyones elses opinon on this movie and see what the real drizzt do'urden fans think.
