And there already is a live action Haruhi movie, though the content is of course questionable. As for Aya Hirano pulling it off, no I think she'd ham it up and be too cutesy to have that Haruhi edge judging by some of her live action appearances in kids shows which generally revolve around her asking questions and acting ditzy. Plus Japanese Live Action movie productions aren't necessarily known for their quality of acting at the best of times, and these are movies with people with at least some acting experience we are talking about. The Haruhi franchise is already in a bit of a rut so it wouldn't be wise to go the Negima path at the moment, and really every anime to have a live action adaptation that I've seen has been terrible and the one's I haven't have gotten universally negative feedback. Not a single one of them has been anything but pure camp.

It's better not to raise or entertain the question of a live action movie any longer though since it's pretty obvious it would never be.

Thankfully, Haruhi is not nearly as famous as Dragon Ball.

Well, they probably could successfully pull off a live action version of Adventures of Asahina Mikuru. But there is no reason for them to even go the live action route for the franchise when it's easier just to do another Gekisou for milking.

"and an insane mafia boss (Haruhi)."
... LOL that one sent me off my chair.

Imagine if Haruhi really was a mafia boss

Live action Haruhi would be a hilarious b-grade movie. I won't pay for it, but if it's free, it'll be nice to kill my time with it.

If Hirano Aya puts some effort into it, she'll do okay as live action Haruhi. Except in the...chest department

I think a quick trip to Youtube would show precisely how bad an idea a live action Haruhi would be.

Well, if you were to dub Hirano's voice over Kipi cosplaying Haruhi you'd pretty much have the perfect live-action Haruhi... I have real concerns with the rest of the cast however.

The one live-action Haruhi I saw screenshots for had this middle-aged man (it looked like to me) playing as Koizumi.

Casting for the rest of the SOS Brigade might be really tricky.

Haruhi's chest aint THAT big to make THAT big of a deal out of it.

Not like all the fans are going to hate the live action movie, just because the person playing Haruhi doesn't have as big...Jugs, as Haruhi herself.

The two male voice actors aren't all that far off Kyon and Itsuki really. And Hirano, when not hamming it up too much, can do Haruhi quite well on stage. Minorin and Goto on the other hand, look nothing like their characters. Minorin can do Yuki flawlessly on stage, but doesn't look the part. Goto...she might be able to do it, but I image her slipping more often into one of her other personalities...biker mode for instance Besides I can't see Hirano being able to actually pull of Mikuru abuse on Goto in front of a camera.

Oh right ^ _ ^ I've just never heard that concept, hamming, lolz, so I figired it to the one thing that sounded closesst to it.

But if it was a live action (Which America's more likely to do), they could use the english dub people.

... Wendee Lee is a middle-aged woman. There's no way she could play Haruhi in an English live-action Haruhi movie. Freeman is probably too old for a live-action Kyon too.

OTOH, though, it shouldn't be too hard to fine a teenager with a voice like Wendee Lee's.

I thought it had already been agreed that an American studio making a Haruhi live-action film would be horrible, considering what happened with DBZ.

Oddly, I'd expect them to be able to be able to find better young actors in the English speaking words than in Japan. People that can act and appear to be in the High School age band...if they aren't really that age to begin with.

(Still no to the idea...just stick to the basics)

Now that's just too cute.

DAMN THE CONSEQUENCES *hugs Nagato*

*Looks around and then quickly runs into HQ.*

Also to the animation thing, most of the time, animation people do that, when they are running out of idea's.

Still, I might try that, if I'm lazy enough.

That would probably be explained in that all of the live action haruhi stuff out there, outside of the few commercials, is JAV.
