Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
....and from what I'm lookin' at, intimate is this stud muffin's middle name!
[/random movie quote]

severa and all supporters of the 'Ronan for Lupin' campaign, prepare yourself for great and utter disappointment.

*hands out boxes of tissues*

Ronan Vibert is NOT playing Lupin.

This gentleman, Mr David Thewlis is. Also confirmed....Gary Oldman's got the role of Sirius....and it seems Timothy Spall might be playing Pettigrew.

Now, all we need is to find out who the new Dumbledore is....

Edit- 10:55 pm
[fangirl moment]
Oh, blessed be the day when Richard E Grant dons a clerical collar in a Stephen Fry-directed film! Oh, this film probably won't be out for ages, but....*squee* priestly!Richard. Gaaah...[/fangirl moment]

Not sure about Thewlis as Lupin. I LIKE him a helluva lot, but as Lupin? Hrrrrm. Still, he's uber-cool, so I'm sure he'll rock the role.

Gary as Sirius gets my Yay! vote, because a) I adoooore him, and b) he's done so many drugs that he looks like he could have spent 12 years in Azkaban. [grins] He wasn't my first choice, but he's a brilliant actor.

Timothy Spall as Pettigrew? YES! He's perfect. He's fabulous.

Also: Pam Ferris has (allegedly) been cast as Aunt Marge, which is brill. She rocks. She was Ma Larkin in the Darling Buds of May.

Bright Young Things

Looks a dream cast and am particularly enthused at the presence of John Mills, who will be 94 this year (the man is the Eveready Bunny)! Read the book "Vile Bodies" for the first time last year and didn't think it was all that great - the most memorable line goes to an airhead who proclaims something to be "Too, too sick-making!" - but the apocalyptic bleak ending is a nice antidote to all the fluff that's gone before.

And won't all the Ewan McGregor-for-Lupin folks be disappointed, too... Heh. :)

Oldman as Sirius...eh. (Don't much care for Sirius to start with, so whatever.)

Timothy Spall *would* be perfect as Pettigrew!

I thought Michael Gambon was set to play Dumbledore? Maybe just another rumor.

Oooh, my, I hadn't heard about this film! Gaaah, indeed! :D

o_O But... Ewan! How could they pass him up? The eyes! The face! The accent!

... and of course his acting ability. Eh heh. ::revels in own shallowness:: Oh well. I suppose David Thewlis isn't that bad looking.But he's not Ewan. ::sulk::

(Nor, for that matter, is he Ronan Vibert. Robespierre would have the casting agents executed for this, I tell you.)
