Re: The Luxe Movie

Henry Schoonmaker-- SUCH A HARD PART TO FILL. But I think Zac Efron, given his newfound talent, could pull it off. Although someone without the past Disney ties would be preferable.

Jessica Stroup as Penelope Hayes (I agree) Megan Fox COULD do it, but she'd have to work on being more, ahem, socially acceptable.

Emelie de Ravin as Elizabeth Holland

An unknown as Diana Holland

Kimberley Nixon as Carolina Broud

Henry Cavill as Grayson Hayes

James McAvoy as Will Keller (I agree)

Anna Kendrick as Isabella Hayes

Jamie Bell as Teddy Cutting

I think Jessica Stroup would make a great Penelope... but I think the rest of the cast should probably steer clear of the 90210/Gossip Girl Cast... The Luxe is a very different series.

Look them up and tell me if you agree!

Teddy Cutting was the one I always loved in the series, always been my favorite.

Re: The Luxe Movie

James McAvoy as Will...yuuuummmmmm! Lol but....sadly...I don't think so. Isn't Will supposed to be a tanned guy lol? That's always how I saw him I guess...But if it's possible...HEEEECKKKK yeah! lol

Re: The Luxe Movie

That seems to be a good list for the cast. I have not read the Luxe series but it would be cool to have all of them play a part in the movie.

Reading can only make you more happy and smarter. :smileyhappy:

Re: The Luxe Movie

I wish the girls on the cover of the books could be the actors. They are PERFECT.

Re: The Luxe Movie

I agree they would loookkkk perfect, but I don't think they can act since they're probably just models. Not that models can't act mind you, I'm just saying.

Re: The Luxe Movie

I don't think that the models on the cover fit the parts that well. If I were to creat a cast I would choose:

Elizabeth Holland- Keira Knightley

Diana Holland- Emma Watson

Penelope Hayes- Rachel McAdams

Lina- Sarah Bolger

Henry Schoonmaker- Alex Pettyfer

Will Keller- James McAvoy

Leland- Asher Book

Mrs. Schoonmaker- Anna Kendrick

"Buckie"- Ed Westwicke

Claire Broud- Anne Hathaway

Teddy Cutting- An Unknown

Re: The Luxe Movie

I was thinking of Keira Knightley when I read Elizabeth's part. Of course she'd have to go blonde....and I don't think I've seen Keira pull off a good blonde....maybe the one who played Rose from Titanic..? Gah I'm blanking on her name...anyway! Rachel McAdams would be perfect for Penelope! She does remind me of her, though not quite as coniving but she could do it lol. I think Anne Hathaway would be good for any of the characters, maybe even Diana?

Re: The Luxe Movie

My cast list would be

 

Elizabeth holland: Kirsten dunst

Henry schoonmaker: chad michael murray

Diana Holland: rachel mcadams (she is not a bad girl type)

Penelope Hayes: unknown i kinda agree with meagan fox though

Teddy Cutting: Chase Collins

Carolina "lina" Broad: unknown

 

I absolutly love these books! and agree they would make great movies but you really cant replace these characters with actors. it just wouldnt be right...

Re: The Luxe Movie

No offence, but shouldnt everyone be played by teenagers (with the exception of the guys). I mean it wouldnt be very realistic to me if everyone who plays in the movie is in they're mid-twenties.

Re: The Luxe Movie

I do agree with you, but in reality....most "teen" actors and actresses are played by adults. Not teens. Why? Because adults can work longer hours than teens can, they can do more "raunchy" scenes legally, and they're more capable to act out certain emotions than teens. Plus adults are more professional in the long run and won't get caught up in the drama. For example Glee. The actors that play the high schoolers are actually in their early to late- twentie's. High School Musical also, by the third one they're all 19 or 20, not in high school ages. That's just the way Hollywood rolls...but yes, teenage or at least 18 year olds shouulld play as the characters.

Re: The Luxe Movie

Yeah, that is true. Chad Michael Murrey, Rachel McAdams and Megan Fox were like my big comcerns. Last time I checked Chad was in his late 20s. Rachel does not at all look like a teenager. Megan just looks like her age. Not Penelope's. And so I stick to what I said before "It would be awesome if the people on the covers could play the parts" and by that I mean if they could act.

Re: The Luxe Movie

In my mind the characters aren't even teenagers. They don't act like teenagers but young adults, esp. since Henry is 20-21. Chad doesn't seem...mature enough or old money looky you know? He just doesn't have the face to be Henry....Rachel McAdams could very easily play Penelope in my mind. Or Diana. Either way she'd be great!
