According to recent interviews and press launches Brian .K. Vaughan has revelaed that a 'Runaways' movie is in the works and we could be seeing the teenage super-team on the big screen.

-[ As of May 2008, a film version of the comic is in the scripting state, with Brian K. Vaughan writing and Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President of Production, producing. A 2011 release is tentative, and Fiege expects a finished script early 2009 Feige has said "In our discussions with Brian, we wanted him to be the person to bring it to life. I think it won't be a precise story line of any [of his comics], but certainly it will be most similar to the tone or origins of his structure in its initial run".. ]-


Sooo,

Are you excited about this movie?

Would you see it?

And most importantly,

Who would you cast in the main roles?

I guess Marvel must have sold their souls 'cause they're selling everything else.

:O I think it's a good idea.

I'm speaking not just as a fan of Runaways

But all the other comic book movies like Iron Man, Hulk, even X-Men
really don't reach out to audiences.

Runaways is based on teenagers who run away from home because of their parents
and who doesn't want to see they're parents get their asses kicked? lol

So yeah, this is a movie which people can relate to more
so bring it on :)

I'll be happy if they  cast actors that nobody knows. Like they're doing with the Star Trek movies. But the casting is crucial. I really liked Anna Paquin as Rogue and Hugh Jackman as wolverine was like perfect! As long as the script is solid and zac efron goes nowhere near this movie (he's in every movie with a teenager in it) then I'll be fine. But I don't get why they would change the storyline?!?!?!? It's perfect the way it is! Any other story would just be crap compared to the original book.

I....don't like the sounds of a Runaways movie. I love the comic a lot, but I just can't help but think that they'll cast the wrong people, lose the feel of the comic, and make it more action orientated.

Yeah I can't think of anyone to cast as Nico, 2hot.

  Julia Ling (Known for playing Anna Wu in Chuck)

she could do great. she was cool on Push, so if she lands a role here, that would be very good. But which one of them?
#11 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio

So... Dakota Fanning should be in a Runaways movie and Pixie?  Somebody's a fan :p

I think she's over-rated.  It's safer to go with unknowns.  People forget that Hugh Jackman had hardly been heard of when he was cast as Wolverine.  This is such a star stuck society that we're obssessed with casting popular stars.  I'd rather see people become popular through these characters... than see the characters become publuic figures through popular actors.

I don't think Dokota should be in the movie...
and I totally agree with xerox Kitty ... they should cast lesser known people, not 25 year olds who 'try' to pass as teenagers.

Taylor Momsen would make a great Karolina! ^^ She's not too well known and only 15 years old, yet she's a good actress.

Great idea.  Vaughn's initial Runaways story could have very well been a standalone story without the rest of the Marvel U.

Nico played by Brenda Song...........it would be cool to see her play this character and apart with her always smiling happy go lucky roles.



Later on.... it would be awesome if she was known for being Nico Minoru
PS. I have to admit i would also give my vote for Chiaki Kuriyama ;)

I really don't know about a "Runaways" film. It sounds like something that could go Amazingly right or Insanely Horrible.

Never read their books. Are they any good?

So um since the movie is supposed to come out in like 2011, are they still making the movie, because they should have at least released news on who the actors are by now >.>

Still no new info, I hope it's still going, I hate it when things get scrapped and you never hear about it, I'm not that surprised that there isn't any new info on it though, they'll want to keep it quiet till they have some super awesome action scene to show off

#41 Posted by AngelFrost (2833 posts) - - Show Bio

I hope the Movie still goes underway.  :(   - even though  Marvel are focusing on Thor and X-Men , but they should still continue with Runaways.
 
I mean, it's like the Breakfast Club  but with a magic, aliens and gadgets.^_^  - I think the storyline will reach out to a lot of audiences.

#42 Posted by TheDreamer89 (38 posts) - - Show Bio
@AngelFrost: I know, I'd rather them do a well-written budget movie with bad special effects then a poorly written blockbuster though you know, condensing the first version (the first 18 issues) into one movie isn't easy though but it's doable, anyways it's not one of those things that gets hype until it's done, or gets mentioned if cancelled... so basically we have no idea whats going on useless someone asks 
#43 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

Runaways movie would work (Disney would want this so hard). It already has the right formula, add that and the merchandising it would pump out and its win-win. yep, cant see where it would be a bad idea at all. havent heard anything here outside rumor. only confirmed was Power Pack, even from The Mans mouth himself, but i think thats intended to be an animated direct to DVD (Runaways would also work there as well, but have a better reception in live action i think).

#44 Posted by Arsenic&Oldlace (1 posts) - - Show Bio

My Thought; 
Katie Leung as Nico Minoru 
Blake Livley asKarolina Dean 
Bella Thorne as Molly Hayes 
Chase Crawford as Chase Stien   
Zooey Deschanel  as Gertrude Yorkes

 
And im not sure who should play Alex....

oh man, Runaways volume 1 was one of my all time fav. comic books. They should definitely make a movie of it if they can do it justice.
