Sorry. As fun as this game could be, there is a new law in Hollywood. Any movie based on any sort of popular fantasy/science fiction literature (comics, Philip K. Dick stories, etc.) will feature Nicholas Cage in the lead role.

Flemyng or McGregor would be a fine Cassidy,it'll be a damn shame when they give it to Colin Farrell*

Not too sure about McConaughey as Custer though.

My choice of director would be a directors chair made for two

Oliver Stone and finally Terry Gilliam for the third Fear and Loathing referance and the sqaure!

I'm useless at making cast lists. I just wanted to say that Finn, your casting of Robet Downey, Jr. as The Smiler is perfect. He's somoene I'd have never thought of myself, but it's the perfect role. He could do so much with such an evil character.

Frank Miller's Hard Boiled

Disclaimer: Seeing as how I can't totally remember most of the character's names or if they even had names here's my best attempt at a cast list.

bill_paxton-p.jpg

Nixon/Bill Paxton

AngelinaJolie_210x180_01.jpg

Nixon's Wife/Angelina Jolie

The Two kids would be played by Dakota Fanning and Forrest Landis

forrestlandis.jpgdakota_fanning.jpg

Most of the rest would be cgi or no name actors simply because of story needs.

I reckon Bernadette Peters might make a fine Virago in any Marshall Law film.

Doom Patrol-Crawling from the wreckage.I want a writer,director and quite the cast.If I were nearly complete with my list I would post it.So far it's just directed by Gus Van Sant and Written by Nicholas St. John.Have at it.

Terry Gilliam's an obvious choice as director, and I'd quite fancy writing the script myself. (There's no reason why Morrison shouldn't, if we're being serious, though.)

As for casting:

 

Maggie Gyllenhaal as Crazy Jane.

A CGI Cliff Steele voiced by Morgan Freeman

Ideally different voices for Rebis incarnate and the negative man, but no idea who'd work for either. (Possibly a female voice for the former, though you'd want a male actor.)

Christopher Walken as Niles Caulder.

No idea about the rest.
