Movies and games don't mix! This artical dose a good job of explaining why that is http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/2006/11/28/Why_games_and_movies_dont_mix/1.html
Dennis Hopper HAS to play breen. he is like made for the role, i swear. check this out.
he would be perfect for the role. as would that Hugh Laurie guy for gordon. and halle berry for Alyx. maybe christopher walken for gman (tho he really doesnt have the voice for it [in my opinion]). i dunno who could play barney. i saw someone suggested adam sandler earlier, but i really dont see it. :lookaround:
Woody Allen should play Gordon Freeman.

What does Dennis Hopper play in? He looks good, but how he acts can change that. Image Dog in Half-Life movie. Cool. If House (Hugh Laurie) played as Gordon Freeman. Gordon would have to go through the movie high on drugs (no wonder he could kill so many), limping, with a cane throughout the whole movie. Haha.
I think the original HL would make a better movie..if they started off with hl2 it wouldnt make much sense to people that havent played the game. The only way they could get around that is to have alot of flashbacks, which could be cool I suppose. Anyways, original HL has a much more interesting environment and yes the game mostly comprised of Gordon alone shooting at crap and not talking, but hey, its a movie. Of course they are going to throw in more characters.. They'd have to have Barney, a scientist or two or even three (that get killed off throughout the movie) and of course, like any action movie, they have to throw in a girl. Whatever, she can die at the beginning of the hl2 or the end of hl1 movie to make room for alex. I agree that Gordon should keep talking to a minimum or not at all, but that would probably bring the movie down..it'd be like watching Castaway without ANY dialogue. Most of all what I think should be a HUGE part of the movie, is the HEV suit. They should use the exact same sounds as in the games. I want to see a part that gordon seriously breaks a limb and is very visually and audibly noticed, followed by "Warning, major fracture detected" ..with gordon having a "Oh, really?!" look on his face. Anyways thats it i gotta go
Before Half life 2 movie they must complete first the moive Half life 1 or show a little part os the Black Mesa Incident so that people who watch it that did't play the game knows the story, and the title shoud be half life not half life 2!
Go to this link and see all the perfect cast http://www.g4tv.com/cinematech/features/50283/What_If_They_Made_A_HalfLife_2_Movie.html
I don't think that would be the perfect cast. Sure they look the same, but Sean Conery his accent is nothing like Breen's.
I don't think it could even be possible to make a Half life moviw becuase it would probally trun crappy.
Nick1989;3009473Doom the movie was based on none of the Doom games. in the games the demons are from hell, in the movie they are just genetically engineered people like Resident Evil. Also, the guys got a actor for Freeman but they wont reveal it yet. He also said a lot of big names in TV and Film are helping him make the movie.
GODDAMIT THOSE ARE NOT DEMONS FROM HELL ITS JUST A SUPER VIRUS THAT TURNS THEM INTO MONSTERS GOD NEEWBS ALL OVER i rest my case
