Both Angel & Buffy are popular I don't see how Claymore wouldn't work especially when the story revolves around pretty blonde young girls wearing skin-tight outfits (I know it's laughable but this is our world :\)

Off Topic: First post after changing my username from FaceSmasher to Anima. What do you think?
Welll. Buffy and Angel don't have human limbs and heads being sliced, guts being ripped out and eaten, blood splattering, etc...

Plus a few extra violent disturbing scenes including Riful's torture, the mangled Claymore who escaped from Riful, Flora + Veronica + Undine being ripped in half, and probably more.

Oh and um, Teresa...

The nature of Claymore is generally just too dark for TV. Not to mention all the nudity. American TV has a huge problem with nudity.

Sure most of those things could be watered down, but then it wouldn't be Claymore. One of the first things that appealed to me about Claymore was the level of violence inflicted on primary characters. It's not something you see in most stories.

I suppose you are probably right that it's not so far off from Buffy and Angel type TV shows that it wouldn't be well received in the US and Europe. Though I'm afraid it's inevitable that whatever american producer that handled it would probably utterly mangle it in an attempt to 'westernize' it.

However, that one thing you mentioned, the fact that it revolves around pretty young blond girls in skintight outfits...I think that alone would cause most producers to not even give it a second glance. They would consider it too rediculous and blatantly fan-servicey. Also I don't have any problem with it myself, but I hear alot of people didn't like it because there was an extreme lack of male leads?

P.S. Why don't you smash faces anymore?

Hmmm.. you've got a point there. It does have more violence but man, 300 the movie was full of gore and extreme violence yet it was very popular. People seem to be accepting more violence by the day

Oh, and I don't smash faces anymore because Teresa wont approve it! lol. Seriously tho, I thought the name was a bit stupid and I only chose it because Anima was taken (my favorite) but then I had the poor guy's account deleted and claimed the username for myself

Yeye. 300 was nearly as violent as Claymore ^^

But it was a movie. There is a very strict limit on what kind of stuff can be shown in a TV show. Now if we are talking about a straight to dvd mini-series(which is probably the most likely option), then it's a whole different story and they can put whatever they want in it.

(Teresa wouldn't approve? She slashed poor Rosemary's face into tiny strips )

Nearly as violent? I have never seen heads flying, bones breaking and blood splattering so energetically and more to that, in time bullet mode! in claymore.
But then again, it would take quite some time just to capture 2 seconds of the quicksword in slow mo.... lol, and even if you slow it down by 1000 frames you'll still have it moving faster than your eye. lol....

Ahem.... Well, if you remember the movie "Dark City" you'll recall this guy as Mr. Hand and is
the perfect nominee for rubel. need I say more?



Galatea is rachel nichols I think... bad picture.... space between teeth, bwak..



I thought about it for a bit and concluded that I have never seen a celebrity that really spooked me, but
this one just scares the bloody living hell outta me... O_O the role of ophelia goes to mary kate olsen...





just the braid is missing, no make up and there you go.... psycho anorexic chick

Hmmm... Rachel Nichols as Galatea .... You know.. I.... Bah... I can't really say but that picture really has the spirit of "Haha is that all you got?" Galatea when she was mocking Dauf in her battle.

However, I think Kate Olsen would make a good Ophelia
Anyone could fit as Rubel.. he is one of those common smartass bastards. Nothing to worry about. I just want to see a good candidate for Teresa. My knowledge of celebrities is really weak and just writing "blonde girls" in Google gives you all sorts of porn girls :\


Valduran: She wont approve it for me because she wants me to stay & live as a human :3

Check out Leelee (the blond actress in armor). I'm sure if claymore was stylized more like that it could work in the same time period.

she pretty much looks like a claymore anyways LOL

someone should post the pics...

IMO, there is no need for real twins for the Zemas since both don't seem to be the talkative type (so far) and Alicia would just appear to awaken and kick some butts in CG.

I love this thread!

I think Ophelia should be played by Angelina Jolie... (The tomb Rider connection ?)

Hate to rain the parade guys but first

1. How you gonna convince studio executives to fork out money for this film?
2. What is the length? 1h 30 mins? 2 hours?
3. Choice of director is more important, who can pull this off? Spielberg? Mann?
4. What story you going to focus on?
5. A self made story or based on manga?
6. More CG or less?
7. Music score? Howard? William?
8. Film location? Eastern European? England?

Rather than masturbating on choice of actress, what about these questions?

Umm.. did you bother going through the whole thread? Apparently not.
Most of those questions were addressed and discussed.

I don't see it.

Hence my question.

I don't think the live action will ever come because frankly speaking this kind of story will not sell. Last female fatale movie that is somewhat similar was DOA but it did not do well so I don't think film executives will entertain this.

As for choice of director, I prefer Josh Whealdon the dude who did Serenity and Buffy.

You have to remember that claymore is dark fantasy genre, which is becoming quite popular in literature, graphic novels and animation. The ancient mythology boom in hollywood movies is at it's peak now and the gothic sub culture with it's artistic an cultural attributes is quite the thing in europe nowdays. Blond, north europian girls with swords in the medieval fantasy world.... every movie that tried to follow in the steps of the lord of the rings sorta failed my expectations but.... this one might actually sell well.

Dude, DOA sucked.... as a game as sure as hell as a movie too.... Resident evil worked didn't it? I think it sucked but it sold...

Really the most moving single story they could pick for one movie would be Teresa's arc. They would definitely have to do some chopping and editing to get all the information needed, maybe include her extra chapter or something. Setting up that a claymore has a limit, that they are monsters, that they can lose control was all done by the first bit of the story with Clare killing her friend and then the limit discussed in Rabona. Without knowing those two things then Teresa's arc would be very difficult to understand.

Now if they went the opposite direction and did an HBO series or something then it could be really fun. The cast of characters is fairly minimal until Pieta. Special effects for the awakened beings and youma might be tough for it but maybe some tricky cinematography could be used to get around it.

Probably the hardest thing that we have not yet addressed is How do we get the rights to Claymore? Evangelion has been talking about a live action movie for years and they have some of the top names in directing lined up who are interested in it along with the weta workshop for special effects, but things just keep falling through over and over.

Personally, I considered this topic to be nothing but fun and messing around. I've never taken it seriously and I really doubt a live action Claymore would ever come to being.

Now @chibamonster I also thought about Teresa's arc being the best story to tell but then I feared of how it might be ruined by some stupid script writer/director. And as you said, we need some background and knowing that Clare is fighting for revenge and now is a full fledged claymore is important as well.

Personally I think any LA Claymore movie to be made, it has to be from Theresa's point of view and she as the main character. It is gonna to have a bad ending of course just like the original material. In fact you can reduce Claire into weepy small girl in this conception. And I don't think film needs to show how Claymore was made, just enough to know they are hybrid to make it more mystical and interesting.

The problem of EVA is $$$$. You can have famous people lining up but without money, it is all talk.
