Just gonna quote MHO from the other Eve movie thread currently somewhere in another part of the forum.

Originally by: Dirk Magnum
You need a compelling storyline centering around a core group of characters who undergo a lot of intercharacter drama. All of this would have to be created specifically for the Eve movie because it doesn't exist in the available backstory, and I don't know of any renowned authors capable of delivering such who would sink to writing what is essentially fanfiction.

This is why I think a televised miniseries would be preferable to a movie. You get to spend more time with the characters in a miniseries, which draws you into a story set that isn't of the same quality as an epic novel or film just as well as you'd be drawn into an epic film. You also get more time to explore side-plots in a miniseries, which in a place like New Eden could be useful regardless of whether you focus mainly on the crew of a single ship or if you follow a multitude of characters.

/signed to this idea.

With the amazing graphics and eye candy in the trailers something like that based off a movie would be freaking awesome. GLucas? for what! I say grab Tarantino rofl

Having it based on the Chronicles AND the actual players of the game might be a tall order since as far I know player actions have only impacted upon one of the Chronicles.

i'd like to see an eve online movie

perhaps having a series of 1v1 pvp tournements to decide which players will earn a role in the movie.

then maybe do a movie where the new eden races finally find a way into jove space for an epic battle

You definately don't want Lucas to touch it unless you want a kiddie-flick and Tarantino lost his flare a while back. I say get a Latin American director on it like Guillermo del Toro or Alfonso Cuarón; these guys have vision...

Make it a Bollywood epic then we could have dancing and singing.


If it was made in hollwood then as soon as your ship touched a roid it would explode, all the pilots would have square jaws and deep personal problems. Everyone would be give high-fives all the time and guys would pause during combat to either make wisecracks or have a deep meaningfull conversation with the troubled, hard-as-nails-but-soft-on-the-inside-very-cute female love interest fighterjock.

It'll stink like the rest of the game to movie transitions. Look at the latest Street Fighter reviews on rottentomatoes.com.

If this is ever going to make it to the big screen it'll take a lot of work trying to compress 20,000 some odd years of eve history to a 2 hour time format.

It should be directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Then the Amarr would die if you got them wet, the Sansha are actually Gallente parents, the Minmatar were dead the WHOLE time and space trees and shrubs cause Blood Raiders to kill people so violently! Very Happy

If they did make an EVE movie it would have to be as harsh and cold as the game, or it would be utter fail.

Agreed.

BSG has pretty well proven that a harsh storyline, with no clear cut hero's and villains, can be very entertaining.

Add some intrigue, and plot twists... acknowledge the fact that most people tend to think they are entirely justified in their actions whatever they may be... that one persons hero is another persons vile perpetrator.

Cap it off with a liberal dose of excellent effects, and make full use of the plethora of ships and weapons available to give it that existing world feel.

I'd watch it.

A mini-series would be better, but a pilot movie would probably have to come first.

I would gladly volunteer my character in one of the lead roles. Given his complex motives, sense of honor, inner vulnerabilty, and dashing good looks he'd be a natural.

Naah, they've already done that. I'm sure a torturous, hungry, 0.0 pirate with no morals, values, or shred of humanity would be much better suited to star in the movie.

Since he would be more like the typical Eve player.

Lucas let loose on eve's stuff by the end of it we'd have some sort of horrific cross between jar jar binks and a minmatar as the protagonist.

OMG I didn't think there was anyone left who thought lucas could direct anything other then 2 hour long special effects presentations. I'd almost say Uwe Boll would be a better choice then Lucas to direct the movie.

No, I think Lucas might find a way to make the Minmatar into a furry pre-industrial culture that resonates with the ten and under crowd.

It should be definitely J.J. Abrams. He did the upcoming ST movie, after all...and it looks awesome!
