Who should Direct the movie?

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!

I'll go for Guillermo del Toro personnally. He knows how to adapt a story to the big screen yet staying true to its spirit, he has a great sci-fi fantasy universe and I love how he deals with special effects. With him the fairy world would look amazing, and the wittiness and the emotion of the story will be just like, if not better as in the books.
My second choice would be Jean-Pierre Jeunet. I simply love his style and humor, and I pretty well imagine Haven City looking like the City of Lost Children. But I'm not sure I can picture Ron Perlman as Butler or Dominique Pinon as Root or Cudgeon though x)

I'm not a huge fan of the idea of Peter Jackson or James Cameron. They are good directors, but their style is a bit too ''epic'' and SFX-based for the first books in my opinion.

I think Alfonso Cuaron would do a great job with the movie. He directed Harry Potter and the Prison of Azkaban, which is probably my favourite HP film due to the dark yet exciting feel, which I think would suit AF perfectly.

Indeed, why not. And the SFX in Gravity were definitely something too ^^ Yet I still prefer Guillermo del Toro (aren't they friends by the way ?) :p

But when the movie was first launched I understood that Jim Sheridan was to direct the movie, that he was very interested and all... And on Wikipedia AF is still marked TbA on his page. So, is he still in the project or not ?

I don't believe Jim Sheridan is involved any more - we'll see I guess. :laughing:
