The Walt Disney Company had originally seriously considered producing the Sailor Moon movie.
Geena Davis had been a lock for the role of Queen Beryl for a long time and had told several news sources and fans that she was a fan of the series and wanted to be involved in bringing it to the big screen as she believed the character of Sailor Moon was a great role model for young girls.
Sailor Moon Movie
Current / Confirmed News
In May 2006 rumours of Lindsay Lohan playing Sailor Moon surfaced. While 90% of the report (which claimed that Joss Whedon of Buffy fame would be writing and directing the movie) proved to be false the official MTV website interviewed Lohan and mentioned that she had been sent some materials concerning the rumoured Sailor Moon movie but that she had not read a script yet and was not sure if one had even been written.
The people behind the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the Japanese manga series "Sailor Moon" have sent her some materials to look at, she said, and fans have begun lobbying hard for Lohan to play the titular character, a rail-thin blonde known for her strong powers and sexy costumes.
"I read that [online] the other day," Lohan said of her supposed "Sailor" casting. "I haven't read the script; I don't even know if there is a script. ... I read a lot of things [online] that I don't know about myself that apparently people think are true."
This is interesting as it confirms that at least some people in the industry are still interested in bringing Sailor Moon to the big screen.
With a lot of retro cartoons and anime such as Transformers and Speed Racer being brought to the big screen, several news sources mentioned Sailor Moon as potentially being made into a movie though no official announcement has yet been made.
