With the news that 2009 should bring us the first film to accompany the book series, I was wondering what your thoughts about it are?, Who would you like to see starring in the film and in what role? What plot points do you think are vital and should be kept in the film? How true to the book do you think the film will be?

I think AnnaSophia Robb would be a great choice for Sophie Newman. I really liked her in Bridge to Terabethia and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - plus she is now 15, so she's about the right age.

I thought she is quite talented for one so young too..how about for the other charcters? I rather think that Hugh Laurie could be great as Dr.Dee!

WOW!! That would be awesome. I love Hugh as an actor, hes really good. And he has a british accent so that would fit perfectly!

I do hope that the film-makers do not do what they did to the Eragon movie, taking parts out, changing things. flamelssecret/pray.gif

The part about taking parts out is inevitable unfortunately a person can't hope to put an entire book into a motion picture film... its just not possible it would take forever to make and it would last well over 2 hours atleast

I had a thought for Nicholas Flamel too..Malcolm McDowell, he strikes me as the right sort of build, and age...and he's really good in the films that i've seen him in, you're never quite sure if he's a good guy or a bad guy!

he also could be a good guy or a bad guy.
Any ideas on who would be good for which role??

As someone else said on the movie discusion thread, Hugh Laurie would make a great Dr. John Dee. I can also see him as Nicholas Flamel himself.

Well, I think that either my re-read of the Alchyemyst isn't far enough along - because I don't remember Gilgamesh as a character - or I am totally a idiot and my brain has done this: flamelssecret/sFun_explosive.gif (I L.O.V.E. that smilie by the way). But I see that here's another "vote" for my fav, Johnny Depp, to play a character. When he plays anything, it is an automatic ticket purchase by me, by the way (has been ever since I saw him for the first time on 21 Jump Street - and yes, I am giving away my age to some degree with that statement).

And, I love the choice of Hugh Laurie too. He is awesome. I think that Perenelle would be played excellently by Emma Thompson (let's face it she can play anything - comedy, drama, what ever - totally awesomely!) and the older Hekete - Helen Mirren. I am having a hard time deciding who would be cool as Scathy though.

The problem with Scatty is that she is only meant to appear as a 17 year old girl physically..so Jolie would be out of that role for me for just that reason, she's certainly got the attitude for the role though!

I know he's evil and all, but people will want their children to able to sleep after they've seen the movie! If you play him Gods, they'll all need therapy! flamelssecret/hysterical.gif
