    Default Rob Liefeld Writes Movie About His Career And Rise Of Image, Would Like Christian Bale To Play Todd McFarlane

    While Hollywood shuffle about working on big screen adaptations of his comics Bloodstrike and Godyssey, Rob Liefeld has been writing an original screenplay. It's called Icons, and it's an account of his nearly three decades in the comic book business.

    Liefeld has decided to share excerpts from this script with Dream Movies Cast, while also fulfilling their mandate of naming his dream cast for this movie. It's a fun game! Like you play at family get togethers!

    So, for example, Liefeld would like to see Todd McFarlaneplayed by Christian Bale, apparently inspired by Bale's turn in The Fighter.

    Here are the two pages of theIconsscreenplay that introduce "the character" of Todd.



    You know, obviously we'd need somebody to play Liefeld too. Liefeld himself suggests Chris Pine. Doesn't matter that Pine can't draw, of course.

    No, Liefeld could stand in for that stuff himself. I can see it now: a closeup of Liefeld's own hands drawing Youngblood's feet.

    The roster of actors is definitely dream casting, though, with some impossible ideas. For example, the 81 year old Dabney Coleman is suggested for Terry Stewart.

    I don't know what chance there is of Icons ever being produced, but Liefeld has said he'll happily share the script with the other co-founders of Image. I kind of wish he'd share it with everyone.

    Here are the rest of the script pages as revealed so far. Stick with it for Liefeld's personal encounter with "his favourite rapper," Eazy-E. There was no suggested casting for that role.

    Come on bud. This could be good bud. Give it a chance bud.

    I'd read a book about the founding of Image in a heartbeat. I'd probably watch a documentary on it as well. A dramatized movie I'm significantly less interested in.

    And no feet anywhere in the screenplay... So typically Liefeld!

    I'm guessing this will be a totally unbiased view of Rob's career.

    Oh, the cheap shot here is so easy. I might have pulled something stopping myself.

    These pages are why no one should ever script their own biography.

    (Except maybe me.)

    Wasn't 1 script page enough, I know that's all I needed to make my mind up.



    On the other hand, if you put Glee style musically numbers into it and John Waters to direct, I may get on board for the sheer insanity of it.
