Neil Gaiman co-wrote it. You should have known that it would have been changed. Have you read his version of Snow White?

Haven't been able to find his version of Snow White.  Funny though I usually like his stuff.

    The first link Google returns on "gaiman snow white" is the whole story I think.  I haven't read it.

    What about Sienna Miller as Julie? She looked pretty good in GI Joe, what with the brown hair and glasses and all.

    William Dafoe would make a good Jaeger, the Nazi Vampire.  He has the hachat face and his creepiness factor is off the charts.  I just finished watching Boondock Saints.  Man that guy is creepy. :hide

    I've been following this, and just so you guys know, I totally love it.

    But I can't comment. A. I'm too busy clubbing seals, and B. I love seeing how others see my imagination, so I don't want to color your perceptions. 

    I have my personal casting as I write in my head, just so I can consistently imagine the characters, however most of them aren't famous actors. They're my friends.

    And all I know is that whatever A list Hollywood celebrity comes to me first with half a million bucks for the rights upfront with residuals on the back end, congratulations, he gets to play whoever he wants.  :)

    Cameron Sienna Miller would be a great Julie. 

    Larry - I can't blame you.  thats smart. Not selling out.  I hope you do sell it soon.  I just hope it's not Leo.  Also you want to hire a good entellectual rights lawyer to go over the terms of sale with you before you sign.  Seriously you don't want to get screwed, and if he's succesfully done movie rights before all the better.

    I think it would also be smart to maintain some creative control over the script and production. I mean, no one wants MHI to end up like the David Lynch Dune, for instance.

    Yes. Definitely insist on creative control when (not if) they offer to buy the rights. I really don't want MHI to end up like the countless other horrid movies that were based on awesome books.

    I see his point thought, MHI is so wondrously afoul of most Hollywood sensibilities that it would be a shame to let them monkey with it.

    Larry - I can't blame you.  thats smart. Not selling out. 

    Are you kidding me?  That IS selling out.  And I can say without question that over a book I wrote, I'd fall all over myself to sell out.  I'd sell that thing for a pile of cash so fast it'd make your head spin.  They could rework it into midget porn and I wouldn't even care.  I'm rich.

    It's not like manuscripts are a non-renewable resource, eh?

    I don't know. I mean, I really like money, but I like my good name and reputation more. There are some projects with which I would not like my name associated.

    A pile of money is good, not having your name on and forever linked to the twenty-first century equivalent of Plan 9 From Outer Space is better.

    Besides... the masses would step up and defend the writer if the story was ORIGINALLY good.  They certainly would in this case.

    Good pick indeed, though I keep seeing him as Brad Pitt or another sissy pretty-boy actor.

    Really, I just wanna see Brad get his @$$ kicked. (my favorite bit in Burn After Reading - actually the only part that made it bearable for me - was when Brad's nose got broken).

    I'd use Christian Bale for Grant. He's young and pretty enough to pull it off and I think he could really make you hate him.

    true about Elwes, mores the pity. I keep thinking of the Princess Bride days. Now Bale would indeed be great especially since he seems to be an elitist among the elite

    Hot Shots made it stick in my head.

    Bale would be good too.

    I was thinking Adam Baldwin for Franks but he's not dark enough, and has too much character.
    Miiight work for Pitt.  Definitely a BIG man.  Shook his hand once, made me feel like a child.

    For Agent Myers, I'm imaging the detective from Fast and Furious, Ted Levine. After the IMDB search to find his name, he is also on Monk.

    He was also Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs. That's a scary movie.

    How about Ray Liotta as Myers?

    I was thinking about Earl's cold blue eyes, and I thought, Daniel Craig.
