How about HBO does WH40k as a series. A new faction every season. Start with Tau because they are the most relate-able to current values and will need captured IoM prisoners to carefully and slowly explain things to them. Next season could be SoM. Season three could be the Inq. Season 4 could be the Assinornium. Season 5 could be the Word Bearers. Season 6 could be Space Yiffs. If all that works out the HH could be a movie per book, skipping the crap of course.

Who'd be good for Sanguinius, do you think?

The real question is: which actor would play Creed?

Clark Gregg.

Soft spoken, clever, quietly intelligent, and always underestimated.

>which actor would play Creed?
Brendan Gleeson perhaps? He played W. Churchill pretty well. And Creed is pretty much Churchill in space.

IMO if there ever was a 40k movie, they couldn't touch the Heresy, primarchs, or any of that shit, that's faaar too much info to shove onto an audience in one movie. The movie would have to be a small story, perhaps a "first time ever" story, like meeting the tau or fighting the nids for the first time, so the audience can feel a connection with the characters, as they too are in a new situation.

Perhaps after 3-4 movies in universe would they be able to breach a story requiring as much fluff knowledge as the HH.

Eh, I don't really know if the HH is feasible for adaptation as a series of films because of the length without reducing most of the Primarchs to background characters or making a SHITLOAD of movies. I could definitely see a mini-series or tv series though.

>Mickey Rourke in a 40k film.

would have to be Lucius. Young Rourke as pretty boy and fallen Lucius the way he looks now + scars.
