I just read Libba's blog and it said that the script is going to be finished in 4-6 weeks! I am going to die if the script isn't just right, and the actors don't look like the characters, and the realms don't look like the realms. So basically, they make one wrong move and this movie is completely awful in my book. It's going to be fun bashing it though. What do you guys think about it? And who should play the characters?

Wait! Who's doing the movie?!? I didn't even know they were doing it! .... I'm so lost. :(

There is a movie coming out based on The Gemma Doyle Trilogy.


message 4: by Taylor S (new)

Taylor S I read the blog also. I like the fact that there is going to be a movie. I'm scared that I'm going to be dissappointed, though. Moviemakers always ruin it for me.

EXACTLY!! They could breathe wrong and I would declare it awful, the books are to precious to me!!


message 6: by Taylor S (new)

Taylor S I think that Libba has it under control, though. She added a post to her blog today. It is sooooo funny. Everyone has to read it.
Here is the link:

P.S. Don't think that I'm going off topic. This post is all about the movie.

Who do you guys think should play Kartik? I cant think of anyone.


message 9: by Taylor S (new)

Taylor S I think that the four girls and Kartik should all be newcomers, and then the adults should be really seasoned actors and actresses. I think that maybe Maggie Smith or Helen Mirren should be Mrs Nightwing

Ya, definetly newcomers for the girls and Kartik. Who should play Circe? Thats also going to be a tall order for me, Circe has to capture the good and the bad, the light and the dark, but slightly more so with the dark, the actress has to be amazing and again, I don't think that certain picture in my head of her can't be matched.

Emily Farrar (ameraq) When she was in my home town last week I met her and she said she's hoping for brand-new nobody has heard from before actresses... And as long as it wasn't Miley Cyrus.... As she put it "That would not be the best of both worlds"
She also says that writers have basically no control over the movie...

lol I know in her blog when she said no Miley Cyrus, I was dying laughing, Miley would be soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad. And Miley is certainly not a unknown. lol "That would not be the best of both worlds" love tht!! You met Libba? LUCKY!!

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
Hmmmmmmm I was just wondering who would play Miss Mccleethy, that will be interesting.


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Do you know when it's coming out?


message 15: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
I think it's coming out in sometime in 2009, I hope it's a fall movie!


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I can't wait!


message 17: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
I know!! I hope it's a huge hit so I can be like " I loved them before it was a movie, HAH!"

Wasn't it funny in the blog with her whole funny idea? That would be hilarious


message 19: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
I know! Libba is soo funny, she could probably be a stand up comedian if she wanted.


message 20: by Allie, A hopeless romantic who doesn't believe in love (new)

Allie (pearlrose95) | 3724 comments Mod
Did you see the videos she made with Maureen Johnson?


message 21: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
lol Ya! They are soooooo hilarious!


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

I would be on a rebellion if Miley was going to play Gemma. I would be outside the movie theatres with signs saying not to watch the movie cause the Miley is an idiot!


message 23: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
I would be protesting with you!


message 24: by Allie, A hopeless romantic who doesn't believe in love (new)

Allie (pearlrose95) | 3724 comments Mod
me 2

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
Omg. Me too. I would hunt down Miley and knock her out and then lock her in the closet. Then go protest.


message 26: by Taylor S (new)

Taylor S I seriously don't think that Miley will be in the movie. That would be moviemaker suicide for her and all of the casting agents and producers.


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

She could NEVER pull it off! Her country accent would SO not work! And the movie would be totally UNSUCCESSFUL!


message 28: by Allie, A hopeless romantic who doesn't believe in love (new)

Allie (pearlrose95) | 3724 comments Mod
lol. libba would hate it 2


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

Libba would probably sue, and tell them on like LIVE TV that she had no part in the casting of this movie. And Miley would cry and get kicked off, and then they would get a new actress! Yea!

Allie (pearlrose95) | 3724 comments Mod
hooray!

oh! and go to youtube and if you but 'a great and terribe beauty-characters' theres also a great one, but i think they put ithal instead of kartik. Brigid is perfect! I like Rachel Hurd-wood for Gemma for sure, and in another one i think Keira would be awesome as pippa if she had black hair. and if you type in 'a great and terrible beauty- felicity and pippa' theres a great one for them.

Seriously, I am sooooo happy and excited right now, because I'm praying that Romola Garai is going to be cast for Felicity! I have no idea why I thought she would be old now, but she was Briony in Atonment, so I'm really hoping that she is going to be Felicity!


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

Who is Romola Garai?


message 36: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
I don't know. I'll look her up in google.


message 37: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0304801/ Here is a link to her IMDb page.


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

If Eva Green was younger she might actually make a good Pippa!


message 39: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
Yeah, if she were younger. Except I sort of see pippa like Alexis Bledel. Not exactly but pretty close.
Check this out Helena, someone just mentioned her for the movie on the site imdb for playing Gemma. And she's not my exact vision of gemma but I think she could pull it off. Look wise. But, she needs green eyes. But acting wise I don't know, I've never seen her act. She's a model right now, though. Exept it says she's interested in acting.

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
She looks absolutely nothing like my Gemma.


message 41: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
Eh, yeah... You have to get her outside of modeling pics.


message 42: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
And she needs to be taller with a longer face.


message 43: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
And not so many freckles.


message 44: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
Yeah, but Gemma has that many freckles. She grew up in india. But I don't know Cyntia does have a lot. My gemma doesn't have as many as her, but still quite a lot.


message 45: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
You know, you all are going to kill me for this but, I didn't really picture her with freckles. A dust of them on her cheeks and nose, but otherwise, not really.


message 46: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
Its fine, every one sees her different. Honestly I like the girl's on the book covers the most.


message 47: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
Me too. What's your favorite cover? I love TSFT.


message 48: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
I love TSFT the most too. But, I see Gemma as the girl on Rebel Angels.


message 49: by Emma (new)

Emma  Blue (litlover) | 5135 comments Mod
Really? I certainly don't. I don't know how to explain her.


message 50: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (kutiegirl106) | 3104 comments Mod
Except she's tanner with more freckles.
