Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

I'm just going to play this by ear and see how it pans out. So...

Franchise #1: The Muppets

Well, then it couldn't be as silly.

I really hope Ash Ketchum picks Aliens or Predator for his second franchise.

This.

I pick the Alien franchise as my Bad Guy.

Edit: I picked before I saw Bus's wish for Ash Ketchum. Oh well. Ash and Suprmallet can still fight over who gets Predator.

The rules have been completely re-written. There is no longer a "bad guy" category.

Correct. There are now two franchises, and it's up to you to decide if they are both good, both bad, or if it's a good vs. bad scenario.

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

And to clarify: You can't pick "Aliens" or "Evil Dead" as Franchise #1. Those franchises are taken.

You can pick James Cameron, Edgar Wright, David Fincher, etc. as your screenwriters.

They've already been picked as Franchises. You cannot pick them.

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

Here's a question: Alien is a franchise. Predator is a separate franchise. But then there's an Alien vs. Predator franchise. Is AvP considered it's own thing, or just a combo of the other two?

Just for the record, has anyone picked The Care Bears or Fragle Rock yet?

I would think just a combo of the two. If it was ruled as one, then you would end up with 3 fairly recognizable IPs.

You could argue that AvP is a third IP. You've got two movies, two video games, and countless comic books.

I'm not trying to pick AvP, just curious as to how that would get ruled.

I would not rule it as a franchise.

If I was really perverse, I'd pick the "Saw" or "Hostel" franchise to go against "High School Musical."

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

Technical question: Let' say (hypothetically), I pick High School Musical and Aliens as my franchises and Sir Alec Guiness as one of my actors

Can I have Guiness play an enigmatic aged member of a mystical order that fights for justice using an energy sword and mysterious powers like telekensis (without saying that he is Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Knight)? Or is that considered cheating and sneaking in a third franchise?

Sure, assuming there is a character like that already established in the franchises you mention.

For those of you interested in getting cracking on your one-sheet, here's a Photoshop template. (Basically just the size with the little squished text on the bottom).

There's a lot of cool+free fonts for your poster here: http://www.abstractfonts.com/

That would be considered cheating. Any other characters would need to be your creation or established archetypes (grizzled police detective, vengeful ghost, kung-fu monk, etc.).

Franchise the first:

Calvin and Hobbes

Now I just have to think of a complementary franchise.

Also can we have multiple entries? Or is that being too greedy, I'd like to try something a little edgy as well.

I say find a friend, pitch your idea to them, and then have them post it here.

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

To reiterate and clarify:

Calvin & Hobbes is the franchise. You can have someone famous play Calvin, or do the voice of Hobbes. Or maybe you want the famous actors to be Calvin's parents or Susie. If you fill your roles with famous actors, Calvin will be played by a newcomer actor, and Hobbes will be voiced by an unknown voice actor.
