Adam Beach, the most annoying guy in Flags of Our Fathers, is using the ancient language of his Native American forefathers in an interview with MTV Online. He tells the site, ‘Oh Don Piano!’
Beach has just finished up doing voice work for a Turok animated movie, based either on the Gold Key comics, the Valiant comics or the video game series, and now he says he’s going to move on to play Turok in a live action movie.
“We just finished the animated movie and now we’re going into the feature film movie [which should lens] hopefully in a couple years. We’re about to set up meetings to develop a script and put it out there,” Beach told MTV. “I’ll have to beef up, and be a good guy, and save the world!”
I’d actually like to see a Turok live action film, and if Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t available to continue playing swarthy ethnics, I guess Beach will do. The basic concept of a Native American fighting dinosaurs is one that just totally resonates with my inner 9-year old, and I have to imagine the marketing and licensing concepts give studio bean counters a stiffie. If there is a Turok movie, I hope they go traditional, and have Turok be an Indian out of the Cowboys and Indians era, and not a modern Native American army looking dude like in the video game.
