    I'd be afraid to let hollywood touch anything like 1066. Then again i said the same about LOTR and they did as good a job as I think is possible with it.

    You have no idea how long I have wanted a movie to be made about this subject! I have seriously thought about going into film just to make a movie about this and a hand full of other great battles/Germanic stories such a the battle of the teutoburg forrest. It amazes me that no movie, to my knowledge has ever been made about it. If it were made properly, that is historically accurate and also clearly in favour of the English, it would be almost too powerful. I think it would be so powerful, in fact that it would cause a national awakening of the English people. Nationalism would surge! People would be so inspired! It could do just as much and hopefully more for English nationalism than Braveheart did for Scottish nationalism. As much as I wish a perfect movie could be made about it, I agree with you guys that Hollywood would completely destroy the story and then we'd have to wait at east another 20 years for a remake. If someone does make a movie about it I hope It's someone like Michael Mann (yes, he's a jew but he did last of the Mohicans!!) or Mel Gibson. It must be thoroughly researched, would probably take forever to produce too. It must be produced and directed with fascist discipline and perfection. No fat reenactors. All cast must accurately represent the relative purity of the races. The English must all be Anglo-Saxon or Scandordic etc. Armor and costume must be museum quality. If the director and producer(s) fail to do any of these things I curse them, may a thousand ills befall them and may they die a miserable death!!! </IMG></IMG>

    Re: 1066 Movie?

    What about the Bros twins as Hengest and Horsa



    With less of the feminine look and hairstyle, they could suit.

    I think that isn't possible.. aslong as the leading actors/actresses are skando-nordic or Anglo-saxon, that's the main thing.

    Well, you're right. Of course the whole cast, if you include extras etc. couldn't look like this. But like you said, certainly the leading roles could be played by people of this description. I can think of a couple of actors who would more than suffice, but many of them will probably be too old by the time the movie is made. As for those twins, yeah they look pretty Anglo-Saxon, but a movie about Hengist and Horsa is a whole different story and an equally exciting concept.

    We'd need to prevent the likes of Orlando Bloom appearing as cast.

    This fella off Hollyoaks could play a role, not sure what subtype he is though.

    Forsooth! Yeah, I'd like to be in the movie myself. I'm growing my hair out right now and can grow a pretty decent, light-blonde viking beard. I want to get in to Anglo-Saxon/Darkage reenactment. My friends and I do some amateur blacksmithing occasionally and have made some Anglo-Saxon era weapons. I also got my grandmother to make me a tunic from my grandfather's old army blanket. It looks awesome. If any such movie were to be made we would have to get the director to cooperate closely with high quality reenactment groups like Regia Anglorum.

    I've got The Vikings with Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis and Alfred the Great with David Hemmings and Michael York. My alternate ending for 1066 is the victory of Hardrada. It would only really result with independence for Northumbria and I'm fine with that. If the Estridsens still wanted Winchester, they could probably have it by Knud IV in this scenario.
