23 May 2002. BIG NEWS ABOUT THE CASCA MOVIE. Universal Pictures have commissioned screen writer John Turman (of Iron Fist fame) to pen the movie, which will apparantly take place in modern times. Radar Pictures and Focus International will develop the project for Universal, with Focus fully financing the package. Radar’s Scott Kroof and Tom Engelman will produce the movie.

Ten years, no movie – They should try pitching it to SCI FI Channel

Perhaps that’s been tried? Who knows why one hasn’t been done; maybe they’re asking for too much money up front, or (as in the case of 2002) pushing absolutely horrid screenplays at the owners. Or maybe they want to stick the owners with a contract that requests they sacrifice their first born to Baal. Who knows? So much goes on behind the scenes we know nothing about. We all assume its a cut and dried manner of just asking someone to do a film and they’ll do it and ask for the money later. I somehow think things are a little more complicated – especially if you have dollar chasing lawyers getting involved – so many great opportunities have gone down the pan once lawyers get involved…..

* At the end of the engagement, the theater sends the print back to the distribution company and makes payment on the lease agreement.

Just watched half an episode of the new Charlies Angels (OK probably not new in the USA but new to the UK) it was total cr**, if they are so short of ideas that they are resurecting 70’s shows and re-hashing them then first thought was ‘surely someone would want an obvious series that covers any point in history they feel like filming’….

THEN I saw half the show, it was so bad I couldn’t force myself to watch anymore. If that’s the quality of script writers they have, then Casca is best left on the bookshelf.

lol you miss the point. Charlie’s Angels is a glorified jiggle show, nothing more; what need have they for plots or ideas?

Ha Ha, Harri hit that one on the head. Think of it like an old version of Bay Watch. That show wasn’t the most popular in the world for great writing.

On topic,
This story would make for a much better basis of a set of films than some of the crap they have put out. Not bashing Harry Poter because I like it, but come on, A boy whose family died, raised in harsh condition’s, who has special abilities? Star Wars ring a bell. It’s star wars meets the wizard world. I said that when I read the first book.

Casca would be a great TV series, movie, you name it. I call this story my hidden jewel. Not plastered all over hell and half of Georgia but better than most that is.

They did a series based on the highlander movie produced in Canada I think. It was watchable but if done now in Casca style wud be much better

The Green Hornet movie was released earlier this year. That was a movie that was TWENTY years in the making. I believe that there were two different screenplays which were ordered and paid for and NEVER USED.

Movies are big bucks affairs, and HIGHLY speculative. It’s easy for Us, the hoi polloi in the Peanut gallery, to tell a wealthy person, oh, just put up the money; it’s be great. But if YOU’RE that wealthy person, being asked to take a big risk with YOUR money, YOU would give it a LOT of thought.

That’s why so many comic book movies are being made. The previous entries all seem to make money, so knowing this, the big money people feel more confident that their investment will realize a return.

Have patience, people. Our movie may never happen — but IT JUST MIGHT, TOO.

I think in order to getting it “right” the censors would have to be turned off. It would do well on HBO as a series. a 2hr movie could not do the book justice. Or lord of the rings/avitar money would need to be spent just to capture the scope of the series. Think of going from a viking in norway to a war god in mexico. Dear god!

Never saw Charie’s Angels or Bay Watch. Guess I spent too much time outside.
