I don't think you guys are thinking this through properly..I doubt they'd all these big names to play in such a movie..actually, we'd be lucky to see just one semi big name in it, IF it's made.
Meh, the movie probably won't be made for at least another 5-10 years (IF it's made, as you put it), so the idea of this post is to just have some fun suggesting actors and actresses we think would fit the role. No point in trying to pinpoint who would actually be cast for the roles.
Sorceress: Penelope Cruz (She's got the sexy look, and that's all she needs)
Assassin: Milla Jovovich (Perfect match physically, AND she's got martial arts moves)
Amazon: Angelina Jolie (The blonde version)
Paladin: Djimon Hounsou (This dude could MASTER the somber Paladin)
Druid: Conan O'Brien (Tall, lanky, pale, red hair, NEXT!)
Necromancer: Tim Robbins (Put a white wig on him and he's perfect)
Barbarian: Vin Diesel (Blue body paint, good to go)
1) Demand, we as fans MUST want it. If we don't want it, Nobody is going to make it. But at the same time, we want Quality, then we have to also demand Quality. And, comes in #2
2) Patience - Finding a great director, actor IS going to be difficult. we can't just want it NOW with ANY garbage actors and dictors, CGI studio... we wait patiently while still demand bad for it!
3) More Patience & FEEDBACK - After they announce the movie is going to be made... we don't want to rush them to put the movie out ASAP. We want them to take their time, get the movie done RIGHT! Put inputs like how the movie should and shouldn't become...

Blizzard, please put back the single player offline mode!
really though how can you make a movie about a game that is about one person using spells and changing their armor every ten minutes? It would be too hard to do to keep it like diablo games.
I don't think anybody wants to watch a movie that's EXACTLY like the games, we would want a movie like the books. It follows the storyline of the games, but doesn't span every single quest and piece of armor. What, did you expect to see Baal runs in a Diablo movie?
Live action, with 'reasonable use' of CGI! Something like the Lord of the Rings! Some of the characters in Diablo are really cool and should be played by a real actor, rather than being made in CGI!
I would also love to see Diablo movie to have smth like LoTR feel.
Not pure animations, but with great CGIs and great storyline.
I have been waiting for this movie for years and I really wish someone would take it up and direct it!
how about marius as the main character, or udyssian?
Then have russel crow as the udyssian, and i think david spade of jim carrey would make a great marius! lol
Russel Crowe WOULD make a good Uldyssian, but please for the sake of making Diablo a serious move don't let in David Spade or Jim Carrey! They're both pretty funny, but neither could take on a 100% serious role. However, Andy Serkis would make a GREAT Marius...
I dunno, every time I watch Marius he feels like Gollum to me. He's got this twisted, confused personality and he moves around a lot. I think Andy Serkis would do a stellar job as Marius. It wouldn't be too hard to give him a bit of make-up to make him look older.
