Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

I think it will be VERY hard to find a Kartik! Like, seriously! A guy from India came to my school and he looks absolutely nothing like any of the actors in Hollywood! I just remembered one actor, but he's not that good. Here's a picture. http://c1.acimages.myspacecdn.com/images01/48/m_88241803238c4f9da5a47b369261dbb8.jpg

 

He's on Degrassi.

 

As for Gemma. Maybe Emma Stone?

Felicity? http://www.flickr.com/photos/8844186@N07/2277343905/ Or http://img.listal.com/image/461789/600full-amanda-seyfried.jpg

 

Pippa? http://www.etapetki.com.pl/galleries/znane/B/Emily_Browning/Emily_Browning_j4.JPG

 

Can't think of anyone for Ann. Any other suggestions?

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

Yeah, I agree with V-Sponge. Kartik IS going to be hard to cast. I can't wait for this movie to come out, but I'm afraid they'll ruin it! (Hollywood has a habit of doing that, lol). I think Kristen Dunce would play a GREAT Gemma. She's a little old, of course, but she's a great actress.

 

As for Felicity I do agree with Blake Lively. She played a great Bridget in the Travelling Pants movies, and she has the look, I think...

 

Pippa? She's gonna be hard. 'Cause Pippa needs to be drop-dead gorgeous AND have good acting. Hopefully they won't screw up with her like they did with Edward in the Twilight films, 'cause he looks disgusting and I'd rate his acting at about a negative-five stars.

 

And Ann? Hmmm...I really don't know. I'm not exactly up-to-date with pop culture, so if you asked me to name five actors and actresses off the top of my head, I'd maybe be able to think of three xD Just as long as they don't ruin Ann's character, I'll be okay with whoever they pick...if they can act.

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

Kartik will definately be the most difficult to cast! And Ann and Pippa are like my favorite, so I just hope that whoever gets the part will be aboe to portray them as they are in the book! Kristen Dunce would be a good Gemma, if she were younger! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

Alright, I am naming as many actresses in between 17-22 for the girls. A lot of them are beautiful, but who knows what Hollywood could do(for Ann). Tell me if you like any of them.

That's all I can think of. Any others?

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

Oh, yeah...Emma Watson would play a GREAT Felicity or even Gemma (she just needs to get her hair dyed red xD). I know this a bit off topic, but Emma should totally have played Bella in Twilight. Kristen Stewart's acting is awful...

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

I really can't see Emma Watson as Gemma or Felicity. I could see her more as Ann. But that's just me. Karen would be my favorite for Gemma, then Emma Stone.

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

This is way off subject, but wouldn't Emma Stone make a perfect Foxface in The Hunger Games? I think she would be fantastic.

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

The last thing I heard about the movie was that Mel Gibson bought the movie rights and every movie that he has ever done has been amazingly accurate. If he doesn't do it justice I will be very dissappointed in him.

Is it good?

Re: AGATB is being turned into a movie!

I really hate to disappoint everyone, because I'm as excited for this movie as the next person, but as of now, the movie isn't happening. Libba Bray wrote in her Live Journal about a month back saying that the company dropped the rights for the movie, and it's not happening. Libba said that she doesn't have much say in the movie, and that it could come out it 10 years, or some other company could pick it up and put it out in one. It could even never come out (I hope not!) It's all chance. It's sad, this is such a great series, but we can only hope that another company will pick it up soon, because this book has the potential to be one amazing movie <3

Ah, sorry. But I'll make it up to you.

 

I'm going to B&N today with my grandmother. I'll buy the first book of the series then
