Director?

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

According to this article Jim Sheridan is set to be the director


Jim Sheridan, the Oscar-nominated director, is currently writing the screenplay for the first movie adaptation with Colfer, with a view to directing the multi-million-euro project.

?I am working on the script outline with Eoin who spent a lot of time with me in Dalkey (where the director lives) recently,? said Sheridan.




Has anyone else heard this rumour?? :unsure:

Oh, this one?

Arthur Lappin of Hell?s Kitchen, Sheridan?s production company, said: ?There?s a high level of animation and digital work involved with Artemis Fowl so the studios will have to decide where they can combine the best set-up with the best financial deal. It would be great if it were in Ireland but it?s a bit premature to say.?


Well Artemis Fowl is pretty much a fantasy adventure, so they have to use lots of computer animation. :) I don't think that means that the whole thing would be animated, though.

I'm thinking the "animation" part is about the trolls, etc. You know, those weird creatures in Artemis Fowl. :lol:

Im sorry I read this now, I had a busy schedule. :lol: And coping up with those spammers was a very hard time. :lol:

A job well done, Michelle! :lol: Too bad MM was away, and couldn't have posted it in the FG main site. :lol: Or did he?

Aw, don't worry. As you get older, you begin to lose your hair, your memory, your eye sight, your sanity (if you ever had any), then, you die. XD And that's why you can't seem to remember if you had already posted that or not. :lol: lol. j/k

I think Peter Jackson should direct Artemis Fowl. You know, the guy who directed The Lord of the Rings. He's really good at action movies. (if you didn't see the Lord of the Rings, see it now)

I honestly don't think his style would trnafer over very well to Artemis Fowl...and on a personal level I find his films, although visually pleasing aree lacking in other ways... his actors never seem quite to knwo what they're doing (at least in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
I'm currently really into David Fincher films (the ones I've seen at least: The Social Network and the film adaptation iof The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo*) he has a keen eye for deatails, his editing is very precise, the angles he choose are very effective. I'm not sure if he's made any folms geared more towards youngsters, but he has a knack for thirllers so in theory he would work as a director.

*I have not read the orginal books, nor do I plan to, I really only like the film for the direction in it.

So, apparently, that article about Jim Sheridan was posted ages ago. Does anyone have any current info on the movie, if the director has changed, or even if there's going to be a movie after all?

To be honest I find him far over-rated. I've never found any of the films he's directed to be watchable outside a theater...Or in one. Artemis Fowl is pretty unique tone it doesn't need a grim dark makeover to make it better.
