Films That Should Be Made: The Force Unleashed

The newest and the freshest addition to the Star Wars universe is the video game The Force Unleashed. Now the question is depending on the success of the video game will Lucas allow it to get adapted to a live-action movie. It would be a great way to mend the relationship with fans who have felt slighted from the three bad movies and a horrible CGI cartoon. I believe the only way this could work is if the people involved in the video game writers and voice actors who could easily be cast in the movie. Some of them were the psychical basis for the characters' look.

"The Force Unleashed takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and tells the story of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice (Starkiller), who is instructed to hunt down the remaining Jedi. Vader’s ultimate plan is to assassinate the Emperor. Starkiller later learns the way of the Force and has an epic battle against Lord Vader".The main characters include Galen Marek (Starkiller) who is Vader's secret apprentice. Juno Eclipse Marek's love interest and an Imperial pilot. Maris Brood, General Rahm Kota and Shaak Ti all Jedi who Marek is ordered to kill.

Sam Witwer (Battlestar Galactica, The Mist) as Galen Marek aka Starkiller. He did motion capture and voice acting for the video game.

Nathalie Cox (Kingdom of Heaven, Jumper) as Juno Eclipse. She also did voice and motion capture work for the game.

Israeli model Orli Shoshan (Attack of The Clones, Revenge of The Sith) as Shaak Ti. She played the Jedi in episodes two and three.

Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena) as Maris Brood, she was also involved in the video game.

Mark Strong (RockNRolla) as General Rahm Kota.

Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Lovely Bones) as a young Princess Leia.
