Some of those movie posters are just brilliant. Can you imagine Pulp Fiction with /that/ cast??

Maybe they can even get to animated films. Could be fun seeing Mel Blanc and the old crew making 'Shrek'. Or the old line Disney crew make Macross !

William Shatner as Jake Sully.... wouldn't mind seeing him fall out of those trees.

More believable acting as well... I like the special effects in the 60s version. Look more in tune with the nature of the story.

Can you imagine Pulp Fiction with /that/ cast??

Harry Belafonte singing the Banana Boat Song in place of Ezekiel 25 17. "Say day ohh one more time m@#therf$%ker!"

The fellow who crafted these actually used art styles, names of directors from posters as well as the period actors. Too bad he didn't do Star Wars.

Its high quality Whiffing with great conception and delivery.

A 2012 Star Wars IV: A New Hope might be interesting as well.

Luke Skywalker: Jesse Eisenberg
Han Solo: Channing Tatum
Princess Leia: Emma Stone
Grand Moth Tarkin: Gary Oldman
Obi Wan Kenobi: Jeff Bridges
C3P0: Harvey Fierstein
R2D2: Peter Dinklage
Chewbacca: Yao Ming
Body of Darth Vader: Shaq
Voice of Darth Vader: Michael Clarke Duncan

A long time ago on another forum far, far away, I had an idea that fell flat on it's face (with a comic "boing"): what if enough of the Carry On team had lived long enough to do a Star Wars spoof called........


CARRY ON FOLLOW THAT SPACESHIP



It started with me thinking about a space ship that takes the mickey out of the Millenium Falcon in Star Wars. Since the latter was allegedly based on the shape of a hamburger with a bite out of it, the "Eon Turkey" is based on the shape of a half-eaten hotdog. It consists of a B-29 fuselage, sandwiched between two halves of a pop bottle, suitably greeblified, with the back end cut away in an arc where the engines are.

Now that got me thinking about the rest of the movie, the casting, and parody (non-sueable by Lucasfilm) names for the characters:   


Lou Starstrider, a lowly famboy and our hero: Jim Dale

Princess Looka: Barbara Windsor (hairdo like a cream bun..)

Henry "Hands" Ohsolo, a womanising smuggler: Sid James

Tubewhacker, a big hairy "Nookie" and Ohsolo's mechanic/co-pilot: Bernard Bresslaw

Grand Boff Parkin, an Imperial commander: Kenneth Williams

Barf Radar, a Judda knight gone bad: Windsor Davies ("I find you lack of faith disturbing, you 'orrible little man!")

Wobi An Tabbitt aka "Ben", a Judda knight in exile: Frankie Howerd ("I am Wobi An Tabbitt, but you can call me Ben", "Ben Tabbitt?", "What? Eh? Cheeky Devil!")

I8-2Q4AP, a protocol droid: Charles Hawtrey

T4-2, a maintenance droid: (special effects)

"Hands" Ohsolo's ship: the Eon Turkey

Imperial Tie fighters: shaped like bow ties

Rebel R-Wing fighters: "What are those over there?", "They're R-Wings", "What! Our wings should be on our ship!"

Jesse Eisenberg star of The Social Network, Zombieland, plays geeks (non wimp version) and whiny slackers so perfect for Luke Skywalker.


Channing Tatum star of 21 Jump Street, Fighting, Step Up, plays rebel jocks with a bit of comedy so a good Han Solo.


Emma Stone star of Easy A, Superbad, plays sassie, independent go getter young women with a bit of comedy so a good Princess Leia.


Gary Oldman, come on surely you know who Gary Oldman is? Star of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Bram Stoker’s Dracula amongst many others. Has a great quiet ominous presence which goes well as Grand Moff Tarkin.


Jeff Bridges? The Dude, the Big Lebowski, star of True Grit, Tron, etc. Has a beard and would make a natural mystic desert hermit Obi Wan Kenobi.


Harvey Fierstein is a character actor known for his very gay, but gravelly and whiney voice. Best known for Jeff Goldblum’s boss in Independence Day. So a new take on Si3P0.


Peter Dinklage is here more as a joke because R2D2 would not need an actor with dwarfism to sit inside and rock him back and forth. Dinklage is the it character actor of the moment thanks to his role in Game of Thrones which is probably more to do with how good a character he has.


Lao Ming, Shaquille O’Neil – big basketball stars to wear the tall suits.


Michael Clarke Duncan the big guy from Green Mile as a very deep booming voice.


Aziz Ansari is a very popular American Muslim actor comedian star of Parks and Recreation. Very quick with something cool to say so would make a good Lando Calrissian.


Andy Serkis is the king of motion capture, played Gollum and Kong. The Frank Oz of the 21st Century so has to be Yoda.


Alan Rickman is another big star, was Hans Gruber in Diehard, Nottingham in Prince of Thieves, etc. Very good at being bad and evil so a great Emperor Palpatine. Already has a black robe.


Bobcat Goldthwait is a famous comedian from the 80s best known as the gang leader in Police Academy II and his crazy sounding voice. Has gone bald in recent years and has a real egg head with little baby face so would look fantastic under Darth Vader’s helmet. His voice would also be great saying “You werrrreehhhhhaoughh rIGHt Luke”.

Gary Oldman...

Okay, yes, I know those three.

Love the Carry On inspired stuff.  Unfortunately, modern British cinema suggests that we'd need a time machine to achieve it as the craft has suffered over the intervening years.

Aye, I love the idea of a Leia who is blonde and constantly falling out of her scimpy white robe and the empire being run by old school British jobsworthes. The Robot Chicken and Family Guy spoofs of Star Wars (and remember Galaxy Quest) show just how much potential there is in these now stock sci fi stories to be ripped off for laughes. Though I do wish someone would make a What If Start Wars Episode I that was actually good.

Yeah! And if they don't use this cast (especially approve of Emma Stone and Gary Oldman in their respective roles) to re-make "A New Hope", they might as well continue the story where "Return of the Jedi" left off.  :icon_jedi:

While they're at it they could replace this:

Might make that final battle on the forest moon a little bit more believable.
