QC - The Movie
« on: 29 Jul 2010, 19:58 »

Didn't see this as a thread anywhere else, so I figured I'd broach the topic:

Has anyone ever thought about/considered what Questionable Content: The Movie would look/sound like?

For reference, I'm thinking along the lines of either a live-action version of the comic, or even an animated version but with particular voice actors/actresses.

It's been mentioned in another thread about how Winona Ryder is the inspiration for Dora; would you cast her as Ms. Bianchi, or someone else? And who would you want to have play Marten, Faye, Hanners, etc.?

And, as an added bonus, what would you like to see as the "storyline" for the movie? I.e., pick and choose various arcs from the strip as written, or just go with whole new script with the existing characters?

Well, you've got to have the main arc of Faye moving in with Marten, leading up to "the Talk", and into Marten & Dora's relationship. 

But with all the side stories, characters and short arcs, I see it more as a series than a movie!

Jeph said once that he knows what Dora sounds like. You'd want to try for the voice actress who did Jane Lane from Daria.

Didn't see this as a thread anywhere else, so I figured I'd broach the topic:
As far as I can tell there's been nothing in the last two years.

Prior to that, there was a movie thread which started out differently but eventually discussed casting.

I think it's fine to discuss it again.

Maybe a story about the band getting serious and struggling to make it?

The band?  Really?  Marten, Hanners and Amir?  Natalie left... and we haven't even heard from Amir in I-don't-know-how-many hundreds of strips! 

Then again, with side glimpses into their lives, a mockumentary (a la Spinal Tap) may work really well...

Interviews with the lead guitarist's girlfriend (who incidentally runs a coffee shop), and his other roomates (human and robotic), little vignettes highlighting Hanner's issues, maybe an interview with Dr. Buenvenida, highlights from Marten's and Hanner's upbringings (parental interviews!)...

But that Amir, man, he's a mystery.  Just some creepy old dude hanging out at indie concerts...  :mrgreen:

For a webcomic, no, it isn't.

I think that's why Spinal Tap came to mind.

Prior to that, there was a movie thread which started out differently but eventually discussed casting.
Wow! By the standards of internet forum discussions of film-adaption casting, that thread was almost non-retarded! Such discussions generally include proposing:

  • Actors over 30 to play high-school students.
  • Actors the poster thinks are hot, regardless of suitability.
  • White actors to play Asian characters.

Just goes to show how stupid forums are, right? It's not as if any of these things would happen in real life...

I do think there's a basic plot for a movie:

You could go through the whole "When Marten Met Faye" thing, maybe updating things a bit (speeding up the inclusion of Dora, for example). The "Big Reveal" flashback begets Marty meeting Hanners, and Dora hooking up with Marten; then the whole Sven thing (which could result in an "R" rating for the movie).

Don't know if you could fit the whole Marigold/Angus/Faye/Hanners arc into the first movie, but you could try.

I believe your question has been answered;

  • Actors the poster thinks are hot, regardless of suitability.
  • White actors to play Asian characters.

You never had a plot! That's the illusion!

WHile I'll admit I enjoy them, I also understand that the plots in QC are all at best temporary things. If you take a broad view of the strip, plots are usually transitory diversions that supplement whatever the hell is actually going on—usually fart jokes, commentary about what it's like to be an 'Indie Kid," a "Goth," etc., or simply the experiences of a twenty-something in the Naughts. If you want to get technical about it, QC is really a modern Comedy of Manners. It's all about how the characters interact. True, they've grown out of the 'stock' phase so that social conventions aren't as much a part of it as they once were, and plot has helped with this, but it's the interactions and observations that drive QC. In other words, plot/shmot.

Despite the poorly rendered sims style, this is good for few chuckles.  Pretty much what would happen if Hollywood (or Yelling Bird) got hold of it! 

Was that supposed to be Hannelore tangling with the ninja in the bathroom? 

Sad part is, I have no idea who any of those actors are, except for Hugh Jackman, and I'm not sure who he was playing... 

And I don't want to look them up and get depressed because I haven't been to a new movie (except HP and LotR) in 15 years or so.

Still, Glau can do the blank look and the obsessed look well, and last time I saw her (admittedly back in Sarah Conner Chronicles), she was appropriately scrawny (for the role).

Anyway, I'm not sure we really know how old Hannelore is.

She's in her early 20's. Remember, she just turned 22 when they went out Karaokeing with Sven - which was nearly 700 strips ago (about what, a year or two strip-time?).

I think about four-eight months. And you are assuming Hannelore told the truth about her age, instead of "I was artificially aged in a tank because Dad doesn't care for toddlers, or small children, or—I'm really ten."

She did mention experiencing a trauma at a birthday party, though. Can't recall what age it was celebrating.

If it were a movie then 1 to strip 658 would probably fit in with Hollywood pretty well.  If that's too long, then it could be 571.  In the worst case scenario, take it to 510.

{edit}I think 658 would work well but Pintsize stories would probably have to be edited down a little bit (e.g. starting the film at 3 rather than 1).

That's only 2 strips and has a run-time of approx 1min 25 secs.  That is approx 42 seconds per strip.  If he was arguing that you could do 1 to 658 without editing (which is what he seemed to be saying to me) then:

658x40 secs=26320 seconds which translates as over 7 hours!

I was going to do 658 x 45 secs to give an upper limit but the lower estimate still makes the point considering that Hollywood doesn't really want films over 2.75 hours.  Even if you do it to 510 you will have to edit (or split it into more than 1 movie).

The transitions between strips could be done easier. Those first couple of strips were relatively easy to put together as a short clip.

Obviously, some of the culture refs from 2003-04 don't translate well six years down the pike...

I would cut out most the AnthroPC's high-jinks, most of the music talk (leave a little in to point to the character) most of the subplots (e.g. write Sara[1] almost completely out).

To tell the truth I am tempted to go through the comic, edit it down and try and write a screenplay but I need to do a lot of job hunting and I already have a writing project.

{edited for grammar}

[1] I would have Faye tell Sara that she was staying at Marten's but cut away before we see Sara's reaction.

guys this is a slice of life comic, the dramaturgical curve is an infinitely long line of blips stretching off into the distance, terminating when Jeph feels it should. It would be a shitty as hell movie if there wasn't a screenplay that completely circumvented the original story and actually made it suitable for the screen. They are two totally different mediums with completely different writing considerations and a Questionable Content movie would be terrible unless it was shot by, like, fuckin' Pasolini or some shit. I would absolutely watch a Pasolini take on the QC verse. But Pasolini is fucking dead.

Man, this guy is right. Pasolini is TOTALLY dead. Google said so. (I didn't actually check.)

He's right, though - it would need to be a real screenplay, with a real ending of sorts. You'd have to move some of the stuff around in the storyline to make it work - like, Marten's a member of a shit band, and he's trying to get something together, but it's not working. He hates his job, whines like a bitch to Pintsize...until he meets the girl of his dreams who happens to work at the local coffee shop. Marten and his band members fraternize with the cute girls at the coffee shop, and hijinks ensue - until a rival coffee shop opens up across the way! Hooah! Can Marten and his band raise enough customers to keep Coffee of Doom in business and still impress the girl of his dreams?

Seriously, shitty.

Some strange mix of Clerks and Waiting might work well here. Maybe.

The simplest plot for a QC movie would center around Faye's difficulty with relationships, culminating in a happy ending when Angus proposes to her, allowing Dora to fulfill her dream of being a flower girl in a wedding.

It could be done. And could be done in such a way to lead to the possibility of sequels.

In many ways, though, a QC movie would be like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; you have to take out too many things to make the movie a reasonable length, and then the movie pales in comparison to the radio series and the book.

If Jeph ever gets to do a QC movie/TV/Animated seried, I'm ready to offer my services as a film scorer. (Just the orchestral stuff, I'm sure there'd be plenty of indie music which would make a killer soundtrack album.)

I think if you ditched "In many ways, though," you're on to something in that third paragraph. I could see a QC series, but a doubt a movie would in any way carry through the 'reality' the comic produces. What you're describing sounds disturbingly like Generic Romantic Comedy plot #3. I know there are things that are REALLY DIFFERENT about Faye, but that's before an industry writing team got done with her.

Also, be a heluva thing to toss Marten into a supporting slot.

If it was an animated movie, I suggest Billy West and or Maurice LaMarche for all the male roles, and Tress MacNeille for all the female roles   :-D

" ...center around Faye's relationships, culminating in a happy ending with Angus proposing..."    

..... ..... .....  This shows in a nutshell how Hollywood  (or maybe ANY squeezing down to feature-length)  completely fucking DESTROYS the essence, the reality of what we know and love here.   And the casting and direction would never come close to Jeph's tone and style, unless they gave him complete creative control, which they'd never give up to the mere founder-author-creator-writer-artist-soul of the "property."

A shame, but maybe better not to do it at all.

1. QC would be a tv series, not a movie.
2. QC would be something soap - like.
3. Only unlike modern soaps, there woudl actually be relationships and the show would still go on and still be funny.


If we're going to link this thread to WooToob, can't leave this QC Movie Trailer out. The sheer silliness makes it worth a view.

Summer Glau as Hanners makes so much sense. Seriously.
Only if we get Sylvester Stallone as Marten. Seriously.

Not. (Just in case you wondered)


everyone played by Morgan Freeman
Yay ! Works for me.

ROTFL OMG its so awful. :D But fun ! :D

Really, it sounds like George Lucas wrote the dialogue. ;)

And the actors are actually too young ! :lol: Especially Steve. Marten and Faye are OK this way. But Steve is too adult to be acted believably by a teenager. :)

And the location just is really bad too. :wink:

For once you are correct, snubnose; Summer Glau is the wrong choice for Hannelore. Clearly, Hanners should be played by Felicia Day.

Oh god QC universe, I am so sorry for taking that video production class in high school (actually, no I'm not).  That is totally my video guys, OH GOD.  That was back when I think 400-450 was the newest issue btw...damn.

Maybe we should get cracking on genetics, focusing on clone manipulation and forced aging, and then simply bio-engineer the entire cast.

It's the future, man.
