hmm...oh S***... what about Steve Buscemi?
Mar 31 - 06:15 AM
I would LOVE to see Buscemi in the lead for this (Irony: started career with Fire Department), but he is not NEARLY charismatic enough as a leading man. ..And, god help me, the boy is FUGLY.

Steve Buscemi would make a great Montag (or however you spell it, it's been a while), but he's too scrawny to play a "fireman" i think. Ed Nortons a good choice too. But I hope to Allah that they get Mickey Rourke.

Ok, I know this seems stupid because he already plays a fireman but at the same time that helps. I thought of this long before he had this role anyway. How about Dennis Leary? I think he has the charisma and the acting ability plus he has the look and looks good as a fireman. I personally think he could pull it off better than most of the people mentioned. They just don't "fit" the role. It is a role that the look and feel as well as the acting is all very important. I think Dennis Leary fits the role perfectly.

So what who needs this Tom Hanks character, what has he ever done!? Sounds like a c-list actor with that name Tom Hanks. I don't think this Hanks person will make it in Hollywood! Take it from me you heard it here first.

Yeah, "Mr. leading role" sounds like "Mr. *****". Tell you what, let me be Mr. supporting role. That sounds good to me. I'm Mr. supporting role.

My gut tells me that Josh Brolin might end up in this role.
I'd prefer to see Edward Norton in it though...

How about Bruce Willis, in one of his world weary rather than kick butt roles? Or, Matt Damon could be interesting, if we're looking for an intellectual type.

Christian Bale would be fantastic for the part.
Of course if he could tempt Daniel Day-lewis to immerse himself in the role eveyone would be a winner!!!!
Mar 31 - 08:37 AM
Let me be the first to say it cause you know like a hundred other people will...Christian Bale. I got it, Christian Bale will star in every leading role in every movie.

oh forget it spittingintothewind beat me to it. proves my point even more.

Darabont is great, I love SHAW SHANK REDEMPTION, THE GREEN MILE, and THE MIST was really good. Sounds like or a cool movie, I wish HANKS was still in it. Maybe JOSH BROLIN, EDWARD NORTON, or perhaps THOMAS JANE. Though I would rather see JOSH BROLIN in it.

he's looking at "a short list of people."
How about a "list of short people!"
Danny Devito. . . They could have cool chase scenes where he runs over the flamethrower's legs.
I also hope they mention that it is only perfectly O.K. to burn books that you don't agree with when you haven't read them.

I don't like to be a skeptic, but this remake has been trying to see the light of day for ages. Ever since Mel Gibson was trying to do it some 15 years back. I don't know how much money has been waisted all these years but wow, they sure have waisted a lot of time.

Meh, Christian Bale was already in Equilibrium which was pretty much a Fahrenheit 451 rip off anyway.I think Ewan McGregor would make a fantastic Guy Montag.
Mar 31 - 10:06 AM
Edward Norton or Clive Owen would be great as well.

...sorry just saw 'The Proposition' again, f'ckin awsome
Mar 31 - 10:26 AM
Argh! Well, this was a big loss. I was looking forward to this film and Hanks had something to do with that. I hope they can pull in another great lead actor to fill the role.
Mar 31 - 11:07 AM
Ralph or Joseph Fiennes.
Mar 31 - 11:16 AM
It'd be hard to make this movie any better than V for Vendetta or Equilibrium. Those two movies are excellent....
Somehow i think seeing this movie would remind me of those at every turn :(

Edward Norton gets my vote.
