Would the tale of Turin Turambar, Master of Doom, be possible as a movie? What characters would have to be left out, and who's character would have to be expanded?
I think it would be difficult to start the movie without making a cheesy prologue ( Once upon a time... ) and still get all the information needed (i.e. Morgoth, Hurin, Ninaeth Arnoediad, Morwen, Lalaith--who would probably have to be left out--, and Nienor, Thingol, Melian).
Am I just crazy?
It would probably make a better mini-series, as six hours would probably be needed to do it justice. The first hour would be used for the prologue and his setting out on his own.
The major drawback of the story is the ending, I don't think this tragedy will sell anything except facial tissues, certainly little beer; and because it will be given an R rating, it won't even sell many action figures.
Of course this is just my humble opinion.
