A good Columbine movie might disappoint people on this forum, though, considering some liberties that would have to be taken with the story, such as changing nearly everyone's name and adjusting the timeline.

However, with the failure of I'm Not Ashamed at the box office, it might be a long time before anyone tries this material again. A different movie targeting different demographics might be a better sell, though.

I will not be disappointed if the film shows the truth, no matter how unsightly it was.

I think the real Rachel was much more interesting than idealized character portrayed in the film.

I think an Oscar-bait Columbine movie is going to happen eventually. It's slam-dunk material for awards season, being controversial and all, and there's so much information about the case that's publicly available.

off course , just look at the plot :

2 kids with good backgrounds being rased in a good religious community .

then they go postal .

moreover , all the evidence related to the case , just juicy details there .

it has all the ingredients for a movie based on real life to be successful .

I actually think a Columbine movie could be a hit. Maybe in the $150m domestic gross range.

Lots of dialogue and scenarios would have to be invented, though, which might even offend people here, not to mention the general public.

Also, I think a good movie that involves the stories of victims and the perpetrators might have to be very long, maybe over 3 hours.

The thing is that "I'm Not Ashamed" was fundamentalist Christian propaganda. In this day and age that crap doesn't sell.

I think Zero Day was a satisfying portrayal of Columbine. I also think that it's as close as we're going to get, at least for the foreseeable future.

I don't think a columbine movie should be made, where people are pretending to be Eric and Dylan and Dave Sander etc, especially by Hollywood. It just feels wrong, had I been a victim and someone played me in the movie I'd be angry about the fact that someone was capitalizing off of my tragic event and I wasn't getting anything. And we'd be giving them exactly what they want, the fame and the recognition. For some reason, a movie about Columbine just irks me.

With that being said, I don't even think it'd turn out that good. The acting and script would have to be out of this world to not make it corny and cheesy, you'd want to be authentic but can't step on too many toes (like jeffcos). And there'd be the "well great now lets also make one about Virginia Tech! And Parkland!...", and that could potentially trigger people into going on worse and worse rampages to get that level of recognition. I'd rather have an amazing documentary than a movie.

I like what they did with Dawn Anna. You didn’t know it was a Columbine movie until the end and you realize it’s Lauren Townsend..

I wonder if a movie based on AMR would work? But you don’t show the shooting. Just the family finding out etc..

Agreed.

i like the AMR idea, i think it would be a lot less encouraging to people who want to go on sprees, and would show another perspective on the people damaged by the shooting

I think they’d just write the script based on Cullen’s book, or even worse get him involved some how.

That's a sickening thought right there. No

That's probably how it would happen, yeah.

That makes my heart hurt... he’d have a Eric be some dark Christian Slater (heathers era) type and make Dylan out to be sloth from Goonies.....

Eric's casting was awful.

I agree with you both. The Dylan they used was at least tall and somewhat had the same type of body build that the real Dylan had. But Eric was SO far off it was laughable. Haha

And that's not even getting into the many factual errors.

God damn, that movie is my own personal Cullenbine.
