Films That Should Be Made: The Maxx
Based on the Image comics series that ended up an animated television show on MTV. While this could end up live-action or CGI animated. I think Zack Snyder or Robert Rodriguez would be the only directors that could put it all together. The same hazards that hindered Watchmen are also apparent in The Maxx. The graphic violence and odd looking characters, mainly Maxx would be difficult to bring to the screen.
Mickey Rourke as The Maxx. In the real world the Maxx is a vagrant while in the Outback he is the protector of the Jungle Queen.
Julie Benz (Dexter) as Julie Winters/The Jungle Queen. The Jungle Queen is similar to the Maxx in that she also exists in the real world as Julie Winters, a freelance social worker who often bails the Maxx out of jail. While the Maxx is aware of the Outback, Julie is not, though it is integral to the story of both the Maxx and Julie.
John Malkovich as Mr. Gone. Gone is a serial killer and rapist with a telepathic link to Julie and extensive knowledge of and access to people's various Outbacks.
Alison Pill (Milk) as Sara, a highschool student who befriends Maxx and Julie.
