So this morning me and a friend, who's also a duder, were talking about the possibility of a live action persona 4 movie. I mean honestly, with the anime and soon to be stage adaption it seems like a logical progression that a persona 4 movie would be made. And when I say movie, I dont mean some low budget dub, I mean a fully fledged, big budget, Holly wood theater release. So if something like this was made, would you go to see it in theaters, and who do you think the cast should be?

Some ideas we already had:

Dojima - Kurt Russell

Yound Detective/ Adachi - Channing Tatum

Nanako - Dakota Fanning's sister

Funky Student - Cuba Gooding Jr.

Igor - Danny Devito

Margaret - Scarlett Johansson

Mr. Morooka - Alan Rickman

No, I would not like to see a live action of any MegaTen game.

You mean the porno? There's already a live action porno.

I'm already repulsed by the stage adaption. A live action movie would be a fucking mess.

Funky Student = Morgan Freeman. Fuck continuity.

Persona Foreplay?

Or screw it. I'd see it if it was some crazy take on Persona 4. Maybe about a schizophrenic teenager who believes he can jump into televisions and hangs people onto telephone poles or a total romance flick abandoning all of P4's fictional elements. Something like that.

How would that work? Persona 4 is all fiction.

Adachi = Joseph Gordon Levitt

I wanna see a buddy cop action flick from Dojima and Adachi's perspective.

Dojima - Michael Fassbender.

I know. That's why they'd abandon it all for the sake of making a teenage dating flick about a quiet but strong teenager who finds out he can adjust his "Persona" to attract all of the females.

#14 Posted by N7 (3595 posts) -

Kanji = Dwayne Johnson.
 
Yosuke - Topher Grace.

At first I thought this was a terrible idea, but you've just sold me on it.
#17 Posted by N7 (3595 posts) -

Naoto - Hilary Swank.
 
Akiko - Christina Hendricks
 
Chie - Natalie Portman.
 
Teddy - Bryan Cranston

@Video_Game_King: Definitely, but the movie would need to go farther. No action, just romance, love triangles, sex, parties and all of that crap. All of the TV business would detract from the really important stuff.

Why don't we just cut the crap and make a two hour movie of Chie going down on Yukiko while Rise and Naoto watch?

#22 Posted by N7 (3595 posts) -

Charlie Tunoku - Michael Cera
 
Nanako - Alia Shawkat
 
Experience the drama.

That right there best casting ever, who'll be Teddy?

#27 Posted by MikeFightNight (1115 posts) -

I would be interested, if only to see how much of a train wreck it could be. If there is any game that screams anime it is Persona, and the P4 anime is already doing a fantastic job at showing that. It's like if they made a live action Phoenix Wright, they would have to be crazy... wait.

Dude YES!... but wait does that mean this movie is going to be all gritty and moody so fox won't actually be a CG fox but a pot dealer called "Mysterious Fox"?

Man, he doesn't deal drugs. He deals MIRACLES. Which is exactly why he's going to be played by Shaggy 2 Dope.

Charlie - Vin Diesel

Dojima - Kimbo Slice

Nanako - Triple H

It's funny how two different people mention porn when talking about live action P4.

I'm going to save her! (done to the "how'd it get burned" line)

Oh god now I can't get that out of my head.

I liek how you deliberately avoided casting the mains. Because obviously, whoever you want to star in your version would piss off the fanboys.

Adachi-Martin Freeman

#44 Posted by Sanj (2457 posts) -

Lol, Channing Tatum? Adachi?

Joseph Gordon Levitt would be a good choice for him.

But anyway, if this is going to be set in Inaba, shouldn't it have, oh I don't know, Japanese people?

I believe Ice Cube is the correct answer. Morgan Freeman would have to be...Well, just go to the link.

No way Ice Cube lost all of his cool after that awful show Are we there yet?
