    A RUSH movie, how cool can't wait. It's hard to picture someone as Geddy though, that nose...maybe Nicolas Cage? I'm sure he'd be better as Geddy than Affleck as Batman!

    Sean Penn as Geddy and Jeff Daniels as Alex as one of the comments on the link said. Although, I'd like to see Alex play himself, like in Trailer Park Boys.

    They should get my school friend, Janis to play Alex.


    Casting Geddy would be a bit problematic.

  8. Just get Andy Serkis, the guy who played Gollum, King Kong, and Ceaser (the chimp in the new Planet of the Apes) to play Geddy and CGI Geddy's face onto his head.

  9. If I wanted to see a Rush movie, I'd watch their documentaries and their behind the scenes stuff from their live tour DVDs. No thanks. Why watch someone play my heroes when I can just watch the heroes themselves play their music like they always do?
  10. But dude, it's TOM HANKS! ;)

    They could do a fictional story, like Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park, and give each Rush guy a mythical superpower.

    You recon such a film will find much of an audience?
