I wish we had the support for a Republic Commando film. If GI-Joe, Resident Evil, and Final Fantasy can be "successful" models for films, RC should make the cake.
If Lucas is really concerned about expanding Star Wars, I think he should liscense the rights to such a "Military Star Wars" film.
I never bought the argument why live action was not used from the series. They said that the CGI would look dated in a few years and that it wouldn't provide any creativity. Well, I'd like to tell Lucas that Anakin riding the giant-butt-creature on Naboo looks very dated and that style is still very customiable. Its like saying "I'm not going to shoot it with a camera, because all films look the same."
You'd think with all the models and etc from ROTS and imo the general success of CGI clones that this would have been more on the radar. I guess he dindn't feel it was kid friendly enough. But if he can liscense a Star Wars "horror" novel...ew....he could liscense a willing filmmaker to make RC.
When I'm rich one day, I will finance it *shakes fist*
Well, once I'd have totally objected to that kind of thing, out of fear of diluting the franchise. But since Lucas has shown to be a master at that himself, someone else might in fact do a better to job.
