Why Has Miramax Been Taking So Long?!

Which actors would you like to cast? What do you want to see? What would you do if you were the director?

@i_dont_get_it: That double post was unnecessary... :blink:

@sillychick1010: S/he is referring to the <a href='http://artemisfowl.fangathering.com/movie_facts.html' target='_blank'>Artemis Fowl Movie</a>... S/he's wondering what the hell's taking Miramax so long to release this film.

It hasn't even started filming yet. It has been a slow process and a real agony for the fans, but there's just too much going on... or they could just be moving real slow, for some unknown reason. But hey, patience is a virtue after all. :)

I know this is an old thread, but people have been reading it, so I thought id answer it XD (Please dont shout at me for bumping Darvit XD )

Its all on the website, on the Movie facts page. ^_^

Filming on the movie was due to begin a few years ago, but a dispute arose between Miramax, and Disney. This dispute delayed production for many years, but thankfully, has finally been resolved.

Some reports suggest that another reason for the production being delayed was that the value of the U.S. Dollar fell in comparison to the Euro.



Things are finally moving, but not very quickly. The latest news was that an actor has said hes interested in playing Artemis. (Which means that the movie MUST be still alive, otherwise he wouldnt mention it ^_^ )

firenze was a special effect in hp.

i don't think they're going to go with an actor whose already done much work, as he needs to be twelve. how many twelve year-old roles are there in movies these days? more to the point how many of them are played by irish actors?

i never really liked how firenze looked in the harry potter film. :blink:

i've always imagined artemis to be played by a more british actor,probably because i'm not that familiar with young irish actors. i think it's almost impossible to find a boy aged 12 to play him and do it year after year, usually they'd go for kids a little older and that's when it causes more problems later on in the film.
