My idea for a live action Futurama movie.

Here weeeeeee, GO!

Writers & Directors:

The Coen Brothers: Joel and Ethan Coen are the kings of comedy/dark-comedy! With some of my favorite movies by them like O Brother, Where Art Thou?(in my top 5 favorite movies), The Ladykillers, The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men, Fargo, Raising Arizona, True Grit and more! They can work closely with the writers of the show and bring a lot to the table for a live action Futurama movie!


Philip J. Fry/Dave Franco: Dave Franco makes a great Fry for his goofy personality and comedic abilities. He's a rising star at the age of 28, there's no doubt we'll see him in more movies.

Bender Bending Rodríguez/John DiMaggio: John DiMaggio is one the greatest voice actors of all time and he has such great comedic timing!

DiMaggio is the voice actor of Bender -

Turanga Leela/Eva Green: Eva Green is perfect for the role of (mutant) Turanga Leela! Eva has mentioned that she would like to give comedy a try (mentioned in the video below) I think Futurama would be the right movie for her to start her comedic career. As this character she can still be a badass leader, but a dorky, sometimes clumsy woman lacking peripheral vision.

Watch @ 2:17

Hubert J. Farnsworth/Sir Patrick Stewart: Patrick Stewart is one of the greatest actors out there and what can I say the man is pretty hilarious! I think he would make a believable mad scientist that happens to be an old nephew of Fry.

John A. Zoidberg/Bobby Moynihan: One of many gifted comedians that are great at voice impressions... he can definitely nail the stereotype Jewish-alien, Zoidberg!


Jay Pharaoh as Zoidberg (SNL):

Amy Wong/Brenda Song: This should be a no brainer.

Zapp Brannigan/Will Arnett: Will Arnett is not the funniest guy out there, but he delivers when it comes to being cheesy. There have been numerous of times when I watch an episode of Futurama featuring Zapp Brannigan and I immediately think, Will Arnett! He has the look and personality that fit Captain Brannigan.

Kif Kroker/Michael Cera: Another no brainer really. You can't tell me Cera's voice wouldn't fit this character!

That's about it, guys. I hoped you liked my list and if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments section below.
