Random Musings – Lindsay Lohan as Sailor Moon?

Here’s one of those rumor-stories that greatly disturbs me, and I hope it never comes true:

We were recently passed on the information that a Japanese Magazine titled Animage, in their current issue, announced that Fox has acquired the rights to the popular anime series SAILOR MOON and is looking to Joss Whedon to presumably write and direct a live action film. Further, they’re hoping Miss Can’t Keep Her Genitals Inside Her Clothes herself Lindsay Lohan will star alongside Jennifer Garner (as the main villain) in an all non-Asian cast.

Sources: MovieHotties.com: Lindsay is Sailor Moon? and Cinematical: Lindsay Lohan is Sailor Moon?

    Wow, I am not a Sailor Moon fan… but that is just an awful idea. I can not stand Lindsay Lohan… and the thought of an anime movie with an all non-Asian cast just sickens me.

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:31 pmmiu

    oh my! *is speechless*

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:36 pmmangaka-chan

    o_0;;;; Err…why??? And Fox of all companies? I really hope this is just a rumor because Sailor Moon’s name has been reduced as it is in the US because people think it’s a kids show. This is only going to make it worse.

    Somehow this is like that Bandi Sailor Moon promo from a few years ago come true except much scarier.

    Whoever thinks this is not gonna suck raise their hands pls.

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:36 pmRasmiel

    The idea of Sailor Moon Live Action itself is sickening. Ones like GTO were good because it didn’t use any fantasm, but Sailor Moon? My god, even trillion words from the wiset could not express how awful it would be.

    If this rumor turns out to be true, I’d laugh hysterically at Lindsay. That’d prove how much of a money > pride & dignity whore she is.

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:41 pmOmni

    Well Sailor Moon Live Action has already been done; it’s called Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and I actually watched the first 20 or so episodes. I’m surprised I even go through that much (hint: Luna was played by a stuffed animal)…
    And if that made me cringe, I can only imagine how bastardized an english version would be.

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:43 pmwontaek

    Leave it to Fox to do something stupid.

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:50 pmChewie

    Umm wow…

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:51 pmthenightsshadow

    I’ll give everyone who replies two cents if this turns out to be really good.

    AKA….MY goodness…

  • April 23, 2006 at 8:58 pmcrayontip

    that better not come true. sailor moon live action creeps me out enough. plus lindsay lohan?! double the ew

  • April 23, 2006 at 9:33 pmjpmeyer

    Oh man this is gonna be so awesome

  • April 23, 2006 at 9:41 pmHudson

    I am glad to burst this bubble. This was a rumor started late last year by a few fanatical Sailor Moon fans from a Japanese Mag. Fox has since denied any plans on making a Sailor Moon LA movie. They said they had no intrest in re-aquiring the Sailor Moon License.

  • April 23, 2006 at 9:51 pmIzzile

    That would RAWK!!! Lindsay Lohan as Sailor Moon!! WINNER: BEST ACTRESS of 2007!!

    I heard about this over a week ago. It’s a joke, right?

  • April 23, 2006 at 9:52 pmAznSoulBoy

    LOLLL if u look all the comment in the site. Every1 hates Lindsay Lohan HAHHA so funny.

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:04 pmspammer

    owni you have lost a lot of things today ,the 2 raw for tokko ,the 4 ova for mai otome and of course kiba :P

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:06 pmOmni

    I’m not losing anything: I’m not blogging Tokko or Kiba, and I didn’t find the fourth DVD special for Otome all that amusing.
    I certainly don’t have the time or the interest in writing about everything that comes across my desk.

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:22 pmEien

    they sure have a lot of money to spend…

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:30 pm5acr3d

    hmm Sailormoon without the asian-feel just doesn’t seem right. bye bye funny expressions and japanese customs

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:32 pmAznSoulBoy

    Damn man they will ruin it man. They will destroy their reputations! LOL. man…Fox is so gay.

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:34 pmAnza

    Wait the OTOME OVA’s are already out?

    and This just sounds really creepy.

    Joss Whedon+Lindsay Lohan+Sailor Moon+ Fox = well honestly I don’t know… your taking one of the better paranormal writers with a whore, with an anime cartoon, with Fox, even doing the math something just doesn’t add up.

    Thank god this is just a rumor, it sounds completely redictualous to even conister this to be real but if it was I’m paranormaly wondering wtf it’d end up being like.

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:38 pmOmni

    Sorry, not OVAs. I meant to say DVD Special (corrected now).

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:42 pmLost-Seeker

    wow… talk about a HORRIBLE REALITY!!! sailor moon into an americanized movie? yuk. to who ever got the idea of this i’m gonna “shove bloody steak down thier throats and starving mutts up thier arse!!!!” this is a HORRIBLE idea!!!! in my opinion anime should stay anime not get transform into a huge icky movie people will hate alot. well i don’t know about you people but no way in hell am i gonna see that movie, no sir! i’ll rather see BAA (battle Angel alita) which shiuld be a killer movie if they put it into trilogy, if its not a trilogy then it will probably be horrible!!!!!!

  • April 23, 2006 at 10:51 pmgawd

    lindsay lohan as like SAILORMOON???? someone must have been outta their mind though i support the fact that jennifer garner is playing de baddie guy since she’s like been trained thru alias how to have such a tough look and all

  • April 23, 2006 at 11:14 pmShalimar

    A Sailor Moon Live action film? with Lindsey Lohan as the title character? What is this world coming to……….-_-

  • April 23, 2006 at 11:25 pm^^

    on a positive note, shows how anime has become a big part of american pop culture

  • April 24, 2006 at 12:05 ammangaka-chan

    yea but most people if you ask them what anime is they’ll 1) think of Pokemon 2) then say it’s kiddy stuff 3) or else they’ll think anime is mostly porn -_-;;

  • April 24, 2006 at 12:27 amCrusader

    Good grief the end of days FOX is in dire need of a hostile take over they pollute the airwaves with right wing propaganda and now seek to defile an anime pioneer. I can hardly understand why people would want to see FOX making live action movies they have slaughtered many a series, have you all forgotten Foxaflowne?

    Yes, FOX deserves to die and I hope they burn in hell. Greedy good for nothing brown nosing bilibous bastards

  • April 24, 2006 at 12:57 amayyo

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • April 24, 2006 at 1:22 amDragoon

    OMG A WHITE SAILOR MOON MOVIE!!!

  • April 24, 2006 at 1:23 amDragoon

    awww my sarcasm tags didn’t show up^^

  • April 24, 2006 at 2:02 amVera

    *is laughing histerically* riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight… and a pig just flew ast my window (incidentally his wings were bubblegum-pink)

  • April 24, 2006 at 4:25 amRyouko

    LOL @ White Sailor Moon Movie. An english version could never be pulled off in the same manner due to the Japanese… um… tendancies? Don’t really know how to describe it…

    I haven’t seen live action like the GTO ones, but yes I’m in the minority having seen all of PGSM. I don’t know how I enjoyed it really since the cats are stuffed animals (later, early on they’re computerized) and the concept (of the stuffed animals) is just silly… the fight scenes consist of cartwheels and the like with some graphics here and there. On the other hand, the characters have a different take on their story of trying to find the princess.

    The other live action stuff would be the musicals, which aren’t just limited to Sailor Moon (SeraMyu). Bleach has some stuff out I think (the captains’ outfits and hairstyles are awesome), Prince of Tennis as well. Every time I watch the musicals I think, “Damn, they would make GREAT cosplayers!”

  • April 24, 2006 at 6:42 amXeven

    LOL Non Asian Cast

  • April 24, 2006 at 7:02 amLamu

    If we can get away with making a non-asian, live-action Evangelion film, then why not Sailor moon? >_>

  • April 24, 2006 at 7:04 amshia

    OMG!!!! is it really gonna happen????? NOOOO!!!!! although, it will be terribly funny.. AHAHAHA!!!! imagine lindsay waering the outfit… GAHHHH!!!!!! y da hell would they wwant to turn a perfectly alright anime into something soooo soooo soooo stupid???!!!!!!!!!

  • April 24, 2006 at 10:49 amZanz

    I think a part of me just died inside.

  • April 24, 2006 at 10:57 amJeeto

    This rumour pops up every few years or so… last time it was around 1998 and they were reporting that Alicia Silverstone would play Sailormoon.

  • April 24, 2006 at 11:41 amkiA

  • April 24, 2006 at 1:07 pmTensai_Otaku

    so its not really gonna happen right??? o.0

  • April 25, 2006 at 3:17 pmmangaka-chan

    ANN has already stated that this is indeed false. I think all Sailor Moon fans should rejoice in this news.

  • April 25, 2006 at 6:22 pmMae

    Aaaarrrgghh…. nooooooooo…. don’t make a live action film… >..

  • April 25, 2006 at 9:27 pmKnightmare213

    For any of people who wished that this rumor is false (including myself), your prayers have been answered. A post on AnimeNewsNetwork.com said that it was a false romor circulating on blogs and other sites. The scriptwriter for this false movie is actually working on another project, a live-action adaptation of Wonder Woman.

  • April 25, 2006 at 9:35 pmshia

    YES!!!!!!!!!!! PARTY TIME!!! WOO-HOO!!! lol ^_^

  • April 26, 2006 at 2:05 pmCase

    The story, like all the others in the past, is a fabrication. There are no current articles on Sailor Moon in Animage Magazine:
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/article.php?id=8750

    That’s what you get for citing a source, stupid person who started this rumor.

  • April 26, 2006 at 11:54 pmHudson

    DID NOONE READ MY POST!?

    “I am glad to burst this bubble. This was a rumor started late last year by a few fanatical Sailor Moon fans from a Japanese Mag. Fox has since denied any plans on making a Sailor Moon LA movie. They said they had no intrest in re-aquiring the Sailor Moon License.”

  • April 27, 2006 at 6:07 pmCase

    We read your post. We ignored it because you speak in 13-year-old English with a tendency to write in ALL CAPS WHICH IS NOT PROFESSIONAL, and you give no sources.

    And what you say doesn’t make sense. Fox has never had a Sailor Moon license, how can they say anything about REaquiring it? (The Fox tv network had the broadcast rights to the first two seasons of the animation, the _license_ for which was actually owned by DiC Entertainment, but that has nothing to do with Fox’s filmmaking divisions or the license you would need to aquire to make a brand new film based on the series.)

    To summarize, there’s just no reason for anyone to believe you know anything about anything. Quit whining and go do some hardcore studying of the information posted on this website: http://www.albion.com/netiquette/

  • June 1, 2006 at 12:04 pmMISS_SABRINA

    I don’t understand all the comments about a non-asian cast. The characters on the show were a mixture of cultures, Sabrina our main character was a blonde haired blue eyed girl. I don’t think that there would be anything wrong at all with a predominantly interracial cast because it would be very true to the show. Also I think it would bring in a larger audience if its mixed that way as well. I’m just excited that my favorite cartoon might possibly make it to the big screen. Regardless of who they get to play the roles, I’ll be first in line at the box office. :)

  • June 1, 2006 at 11:12 pmTRINDA

    Sailor Moon is my childhood favourite and i would love to see an actcual movie about it, like if they did Scooby doo and Garfeild i am sure that they can do Sailor Moon. But didn’t they have a rumour that Sarah Mechell Gellar was going to play Sailor Moon that would be way cooler, and Jony Depp is sussposed to play Tuxedo Mask. Who wouldn’t want to see him in a Tux.

  • October 23, 2006 at 5:48 pmmr skin

    Lindsay has definately been overexposed lately and I think that’s going to hurt her career in the next year!

  • January 16, 2007 at 8:47 pmDamien

    sailormoon wasn’t popular in U.S.A. but it was one of the anime that I love. I’m not a fan
    of Linsay but making a japenese anime out of a movie is a great idea and you don’t get many of those in America. SailorMoon is the best girl cartoon on the planets. Linsay you may have got some bad comments but its a great idea. You are a good actor and a beatiful women and I’m looking foward to see your movie in theaters

  • February 22, 2007 at 9:59 pmSupport

    That will sort of mess up the reputation. But on the other hand I would like to see a American version. If the movie or series is a good action packed films I wont have a problem but it cant be wimpy.
