Would a movie really work?

The Artemis Fowl Movie is coming... On the 26th July 2013, Disney, in association with Harvey Weinstein, announced that a movie covering the events of the first two books was finally in the works!

umm, yeah, that's definitely not true. I don't know where that even came from, he is in no way a good Artemis. I think that's an old rumor, so he isn't even the right age anymore.

It is an old rumor, he does look young for his age, but he is definitely too old now. No one has been cast in the movie yet, nor any directory.

He was in the Spiderwick Chronicles, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, August Rush. He looks at least two years younger than he actually is.

He is so annoying. I really don't like him. Who ever thought he would make a good Artemis in the first place. He has freckles-ish and not black hair, or blue eyes. And, he's not cute either, no offense to him.

Hollywood liked him, because he looked 10 when he was 15, so he was a better actor than an actual 10 year old. Eyes, hair, and freckles aren't really that big an issue, because actors can change to look the part. But I agree that he would not be a good Artemis. It's a moot point though, because he's too old anyway.

Dude looks like an elf in that picture.
Yeah, I don't think he would make a good Artemis. I'm still voting for an Irish native unknown actor, plzthx.

I think Steven Speilberg would be a good director, and I think Artemis and Holly's actors should be unknown (ME! ME!). Everyone else should be well-known actors. The budget would have to be SUPER high, like, AVATAR high. That's one of the reasons why it's delayed, because of the budget. I really hope they put it off for another four years.

Why do you want it to be delayed? Why??

I don't think they'd need as big of a budget as Avatar, that was the most expensive movie ever made. Plus it was in 3-D which is more expensive. And if they make AF in 3-D I'll be angry.
But they'd have pretty much the same amount of special effects as LOTR, and that wasn't ridiculously expensive.
I think if they can make it like Pirates of the Caribbean (cause it's with Disney) then it would be awesome. It's pretty much the same as POTC because it's mainly action and adventure, but with comedy too, and special effects.
Oooh, they should get Jerry Bruckheimer to produce it. :shiny:
