So many of tu may know that a Skulduggery Pleasant movie IS planned, and the rights to the film have been sold to Warner Bros. However, very little is known about what the actual film will be like.
So far, it has been confirmed that Derek Landy will be escritura the screenplay, so it is seguro to assume the film will be as true to the book as possible. DL has anterior experience escritura screenplays, including the non-family friendly Boy Eats Girl starring Samantha Mumba.
Originally the film was planned for release in 2010, and to be filmed in 2009. This has since been set back with casting and script finalization this year, filming 2010, and eventual release in 2011. fans still have a while to wait yet!
But the pregunta on everyone's lips is who is going to play who. DL has hinted that there will be open auditions for the character of Valkyrie Cain / Stephanie Edgley. There are no rumours yet on Ghastly, Tanith o any of the other characters besides the one and only Skulduggery.
DL has dicho he would like Johnny Depp to voice Skulduggery, but it has not been yet confirmed that he will. A más reciente rumour is saying that James Nesbitt may be voicing the main character. SP himself is supposedly a mix of anamatronics and CGI, a la the dinosaurios in Jurassic Park.
DL has dicho that he has been in talks with Steven Spielburg himself to direct the film.
So thats it on the updates! I'll add más as I hear it.
Ciao!
