I have to say, the only LoK storyline I could see working well in a live-action film would be the original Blood Omen - no squid, no chinless blue wraith, less mess. Even then, I find it hard to think of actors I'd really want to see play the parts as much as I'd like to see a well made CG film, especially since a game series that is well-known for it's excellent voice-acting (and particularly that of Simon Templeman and Michael Bell) would make a film that was at a severe loss without it - and a full-length CG film that looked like the intro FMVs to the Soul Reaver games would quite simply kick butt.

I guess, if I had to think of actors for a live-action flick, Simon Templeman could very easily play Kain in a Blood Omen film. He certainly looks the part anyway. Kate Beckinsale could be Ariel. Not a huge part, but certainly an integral one. Beyond that, I'd really have no idea.

I'd like to hope that the music would stay very similar, also, even if that's a bit unrealistic. Ideally, I'd love it if Kurt Harland was still in charge of that department. Heck, they have to, at least, have Ozar Midrashim in there somewhere. *grinz*

Does Anyone else think that Luke Goss in Hellboy 2 has a bit of a look of Kain?

he does kinda resemble Kain, the blood omen 2 Kain anyways.

I think Simon Templeton looks enough like Kain, with makeup of course to reprise his role in a live action movie as Kain

If they do make a Blood Omen movie, I'd suggest getting an actor who isn't a young twenty something pretty boy. For one thing, Kain is in his thirties and if you really look at him in Blood Omen, he isn't very attractive. I do think Luke Goss can do it if he's willing to have some prosthetics added to downplay his looks (and if Blade two is any indication, he just might.)

It's not rape if you yell surprise.
