Live action Jetsons movie

There was talk a few years back about the possiblity of a Jetsons live action movie. Do you think it will ever happen or is it just too corny? If so, who would you like to see playing the characters?

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

Yeah I think Will Farrell was attached early on as George Jetson...he'd be perfect for the role. Amy Adams for Jane Jetson, Kristen Bell as Judy, not really sure for Elroy. CGI dog for Astro. Danny DeVito for Mr. Spacely would be my picks. Not really read much on this. Probably back in development hell.

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

I think Amy Adams is too young to play Jane & have Kristen Bell for a teenage daughter.

Meh...Amanda Seyfreid then for Judy, I'm drawing a blank when it comes to Jane then, I chose Amy because I'm a big fan of hers and can see her working really well with Will.

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

Although I don't have much interest in The Jetsons in particular, I have thought for awhile that it would be fun to see a comedy or adventure show set in a retro-futuristic setting, portraying what we thought the future would look like back in the fifties, but done with modern special effects. A Jetsons adaptation might be a good opportunity to do that, although it is not quite what I had in mind.

Personally, I think you need somebody more like Steve Carrell for George. George seems too domestic and milquetoast for Farrell.

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

William H. Macy would have made a good George Jetson a few years ago. He still might, but I'm sure they'll want to go with a younger more contemorary name even if that person doesn't fit the part.

Yeah, William H. Macy strikes me as a bit too old for the part of George Jetson. I'm picturing more Paul Bettany. But Danny Devito has to be Mr Spacely, there's no doubt about it.

I seem to remember seeing a CGI test of Rosie somewhere that I can't find anywhere.

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

The question is do people want something cartoonish and comedic or do they want something more realistic(? ) and cool???

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

It wouldn't be very Jetsons-y, but I'd love to see a serious, fairly realistic (though still humorous) look at a future society that has all the whiz-bang stuff we thought we were supposed to have by 2010: robot maids, sky cities on stilts, flying cars and all the rest. They should set it in the year 2010 (or whatever year the movie comes out) as an alternate reality.

George: Tom Hanks
Jane: Felicity Huffman
Judy: Heather Morris from Glee
Elroy: any kid actor, really
Rosie: Rosie O'Donnell seems like the right call
Mr. Spacely: Danny DeVito

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

I see something as a cross between the Matrix & Minority Report...with a little bit of charm & humor...No!?

Tom Cruise as George
Nicole Kidman as Jane

Re: Live action Jetsons movie

Matrix/Minority mixed with the cinematography of "Speed Racer" and you've got your techno-noir Jetsons!
