        @mcleve02 you'd have to be careful with everyone drawing the comparison...i could see hugh jackman or daniel day lewis if you are going for old school Ahab.

          @justatadmatt Yeah man... I am glad to see I am not alone on this... we haven't really seen a modern day telling of this tale and it could be really well done... After PoC series, I could totally see Geoffrey Rush as Captain Ahab!

              @mcleve02 Funny. Before, some of us complained because there weren't enough sci-fi movies with aliens, now well, you get the idea :P

                  @mcleve02 Could be fun. No one today would sit through a captain searching a whale

                    I would much rather see the original Moby Dick than to see yet another alien film...
