I think the girl that was choosen to be meggie was a total rip off because i think that they should have got somebody new to play the part trust me my dad is really mad that they didn't choose somebody new and so am i

Camille said...

Interesting, who has been cast as Meggie? I haven't seen that yet. I need to go over to IMDB and check it out. The rest of the cast sounds great.

Camille said...

I have not seen Nanny McPhee yet. I better move it up in my Netflix queue so I can check out her acting chops. I wlll let you know!

i think that somebody needs to write in this thing before they banish it or something because it is really boring just sitting hear waiting for somebody to write thank you very much

Camille said...

Dear Anonymous,
Basta is a thug. Jamie Foreman is a perfect Basta. Have you read the book?

Caitlin said...

i dont think they made a good choice for mo. it would have been better with an all new cast. except for the boy who plays farid cuz i love him.

Anonymous said...

yeah i know that basta is and yes i have read the book it was so kool have you read the next book

Anonymous said...

Has the movie come out yet??? I have read the book like, 5 times.

Uh, I don't think Jamie Foreman Is a very good Basta. Cornelia Funke described Basta as Sexy, and having a slim face..heh heh....that's NOT Jamie Foreman. Which is too bad, Basta is my Favorite Character.

Brendan Fraser wasn't casted. Cornealia Funke dedicated the book to him. She said without him there was no Mo.

Kesley said...

Alright, First Anonymous (just want to make sure there is no confustion) so you didn't get to be meggie which was obviously a little dream of yours. Just because you didn't get the part doesn't mean you have to start insulting people.
Right, had to say that.
Anyone else (or First Anonymous if you forgive me) just wondering how Brendean Fraser is the role model for Mo when he doesn't even have dark hair. Or is that just one small thing she changed about him.

Camille said...

Brendan Fraser was cast as Mo because Cornelia Funke wanted him to be Mo. She was using him as a "model" for the character when she wrote the book.

It is interesting that the studio was keen enough on HER vision so hire him.

ok, when exactly was Basta described as "sexy"??? i don't recall that.

Anonymous said...

They never described Basta as "sexy", but he is supposed to have a thinner face. HE's supposed to look like a fox.So, when they described him as "foxy", I think some people got mixed up,thinking that they were using "foxy" as sexy.

Anonymous said...

I think that basta's character wasn't the best choice, but jamie is kind of scary which is basta's portrayal (not sexy!). brendan is perfect for mo because funke modeled mo after him. andy syrkis is not the character to play capricorn (not evil enough) and eliza bennet doesn't look like what i pictured meggie to be. sure, she has blond hair, but i don't think she can pull off meggie as a character.

question: when is the inkheart movie coming out? some web sites say 2007, and some say 2008. please tell me its in 2007. it would be the one movie i would see this year if i saw nothing else!

Anonymous said...

what do you guys think about andy serkis. the last anonymous was totally right. andy is cool and all, but totally not evil enough to play capricorn. i pictured him tall thin and gaunt. oh, and fyi, basta is most definantly not supposed to be sexy! where did it every describe him as sexy. all i read was that he had a thin face, which is what capricorn is also supposed to look like

Anonymous said...

I thought that Daniel Craig should play Capricorn. I love andy as an actor, but he's just not scary enough. Daniel is real creepy and is pretty much colorless, so I thought that he'd be perfect. I also thought that Joseph Fiennes should play Basta. I'd like to know people's oppinions on that too.

i can't wait for this movie to come out!!! it is my altime favorite seriese in the world. bu im sooooo fricken agervated with he characters hey picked!

Anonymous said...

Andy Serkis rules! He could play any role(okay, I'm going a little far). Gollum was the greatest character in movie history because of him! I'm glad he got the role!

Anonymous said...

Ummm, who dose play Farid? I do NOT the andy should have been cast for capricorn. Needs to be more mean.

Anonymous said...

I can't wait for this movie to be released! Personally, I feel the actor chosen to play Farid isn't right. He looks to old. I hope the movie is coming out in 2007! I don't think I could wait until 2008!

Anonymous said...

Well, you have to remember that Farid is supposed to be a few years older than Meggie. He's not supposed to be like 12.

Krystina said...

Andy Serkis CAN be evil when he wants to!!! I think they'll all pull it off!!! (even though I havent seen Eliza act) But how about Sienna Guillory? She's a good actress. I can't wait until the movie comes out... I'm obsessing!

Anonymous said...

The cast is great, the director is great, it'll be a great movie.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the last anonymous. We're all trying to say who'd be good for what part and who wouldn't be. We all haven't even SEEN the movie yet for peat's sake! The only way to tell whether the movie will be good or bad is to watch it...and even then I guess opinions are gonna varry.

I NEED INKHEART THE MOVIE TO COME OUT RIGHT NOW. I WILL DIE IF I DONT GET TO SEE IT SOON!!!

Anonymous said...

I know... I LOVE inkheart trilogy and i hope they make a movie for inkspell too.... most of the actors are not what i imagined them to be, but hey, it cant be perfect.... and right, farid is a lil too old.... he should look.... 14 or 15.... cuz he likes meggie and the actor is a lil too old 4 that....>_>

Anonymous said...

Well, I saw him in that one movie he was in "Breaking an Entering" I think it was called. I think he can pull it off. He's a REALLY good actor!!!

Anonymous said...

ok so how old is the actor playing the role of meggie? I heard that the actor playing Farid was like 18!!! so if meggie is 13 or 14 then maybe farid needs a new character to play him...

Anonymous said...

He's not 18! He's like 16. Remember, Farid is SUPPOSED to be a few years older than Meggie. LIke three or four years. He's not supposed to be 12!

twasbrillig said...

The cast has been varified with Cornelia, and though Andy Serkis seems the last person I would have invisioned capricorn as, if Cornelia approved it, they've got to be good. I think I heard the movie's comming out in December '07, but that's just a rumor

Camille said...

Check out the site Inkhearties for information on all things Inkheart!

That site says the release date for the movie will be March 2008

Anonymous said...

Well, i have been doing some research myself and the girl who plays Meggie is 15 and the guy who plays Farid is 18 so yeah...

Anonymous said...

It doesn't matter how old they are, it matters how old the LOOK. If they look the right age, it doesn't matter. The casting directors know what they're doing.

AnonymousCoolPerson said...

I think that the girl playing Meggie is a good choice. in fact everyone looks like how I imagined and those that I have seen act I love how they do act, so I have high expectations of this. and BTW the Paul Bettany has like always been one of my fav actors and now he's playing my fav character ^_^ I guess I could live with the idea of the movie sucking as long as he's playing Dustfinger <3

Anonymous said...

I agree. The cast is great. And even if Jamie Foreman doesn't look exactly how Basta was described in the book, he's still a good actor. At least give the poor dude a chance! You won't know if it's good or bad until you SEE THE MOVIE.

The book was amazing and I hope the movie will be too. The trailer looks really good.

Anonymous said...

OMG! i love the trailer, books (i'm half-way through the second), and everything else about inkheart. brenden fraser is awesome! so r the other peoples except meggie! she is so not made 4 the part! i got so into the books that my mom had 2 take it away from me! that happen to anyone else?

Anonymous said...

brenden fraser will marry 1 day! he just doesn't know it yet...

Anonymous said...

OMG! THe book was awesome but I don't think they can capture it on video. I hope its good but I think they should have gotten a different girl to play meggie she looks to old.

Anonymous said...

All you guys that are complaining about the cast are being ridiculous.
Like you could've done any better?
The reason these people were picked is because they're good at their job ok?
Sure, you're intitled to your opinion but all you're doing is slagging these people off when they're just doing what they love.
I hope you feel proud of yourselves :)
