What do you NOT want to see in 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!

What I really don't want to see is Holly dancing around wearing fancy clothes and pale skinned and about thirty. And not, I repeat not, WITH GREEN SKIN OR EARS THAT STAND ABOUT THREE KILOMETRES OUT FROM HER HEAD. Holly is young for one of the people so should not be played by a 20 year plus actor. As for Artemis I dont want him played by an ugly tall gangly man - that would be awful! Anyway yeah thats what I think. I don't want the fairies to be cartoons who swan aroung either they're humane but can still be viscous.

What I irks me the most is when movie hardly resemble the book they are trying to potray, where whole chapters are missing or you feel like a caffine-addict monkey put together the new plotline and gave it to the director (glares evily at the people who made the movie Eragon). If Artemis Fowl ends up like that I will beso annoyed. No one would make me see that movie, ever.

Yes, one of the most important things is that they don't mess with the plot! Especially by combining two of them!
The actors are important too, but I guess I'd eventually grow into them, but the plot needs to be the same.

I'll still see it whatever it does though

I can live with the plot being tinkered with a very little bit. If the movie is just a refresher of the book or TV series or what have you, it's kind of dull. >_>; Small changes can make it more interesting. As long as major plot points aren't messed with, I'm fine.

Yeah, small changes are ok, and probably preferred in some cases, but if they put two books together you know there will be major splicing going on. So they better not put them together! Ahh, it makes me so angry that they would even think of doing that.

Also, @Snows of Yester-Year, I just realized that you're thing says you live in Baltimore, that's really weird, cause I live in Baltimore county (not in the city, but north)! That's so weird! Everyone else here is from like England or something. I wonder if we actually know each other... It's kind of creepy.

Yes, I agree it would be hard enough squeezing one whole book into a movie without combining the first 2! I think there is going to be a different ending too... :(

According to Colfer, the movie will combine the plot of the first two books and there will be a new ending to it, but the rest of it will be true to the books.

I just don't believe that as being true. I mean, when's the last time that page was updated?
But if it is true...what the heck kind of new ending are they talking about?! I LOVE the ending of TAI! It's one of my favorites! And it has such good A/H! If they screw that up...they will be sorry.

I wouldn't mind a slight change in the storyline, or even slight changes in the characters appearences, however one thing i could never stand is bad acting and changing the personality of the characters. Because if either of those things happen, then you either get a bad movie that is difficult to watch or a movie with characters whose motives and actions are completely alien and unjustifiable... thats just my opinion -- XD

Major changes in anything. I do not want any major changes in the appearance of the characters, their personality or in the environment. I hope the changes in the storyline they're talking about are really "slight". I also really hope the actors will be good. And of an appropriate age, as Mere already mentioned. I wonder how the Holly actress will do the "bit of everything" English accent. I doubt she'll do an accent at all, tbh.

Re: What do you NOT want to see in the movie?

Postby Frondish17 » Sat Mar 05, 2011 6:18 am

things I do NOT want to see in the movie:

1) Freddy Highmore - I want Artemis to be older so that older people can watch the movie without feeling stupid, and Holly of course has to show interest in him so he couldn't be this chubby little adolescent whose voice hasn't changed. If they're going to change this movie (and they will) they might as well do something right and make him a little older. I nominate Skandar from Narnia, personally, or an unknown. Someone with a REAL Irish accent.
2) Keira Knightly - If Keira were Holly, there would be more lip-pursing than gun-fighting. Which would be disgusting. Holly has to be tough, not a beauty queen, and certainly not played by an actress who knows she is a beauty queen. Besides, Keira would be too unbelievable after all her other movies. Everyone would be thinking - Elizabeth Swann. No one would believe her as Holly.
3) Mulch in action - I have a feeling several directors would snatch this up as a crude-humor bit to make the film an R lol. I really have no desire to see Mulch Diggums doing his thing. It's alright to read about, but I really believe this part should be done as tastefully as possible when in film.
4) Changed dialogue - I don't think people would dare mess with the dialogue thing (who could write more snapping dialogue than EC, right?) but I do think that the delivery of this dialogue will be extremely important and most likely botched up by the actors they pick. Can't you picture Keira going: "If you know so much about us, then you know what happens when they locate me" with her big lips and her little cool head jiggle? It would totally ruin it! Or what about Freddy Highmore with his slurred little soft voice going: "Metaphorically or literally?" with his innocent, zoned-out expression. Ugh ugh ugh.
5) Opal - as an innocent-looking girl. I saw some nominations for her part on Google and they all look rather tame. Opal cannot be tame - she has to look like a devious, horribly hard and beautiful person. Maybe get Keira for her . . .someone who thinks she's princess of the world.

I completely agree with this. That would just make the film really...awkward... I don't think it would make it an R rated film (if that's what you were saying), but it would just be unpleasant.

I've never actually looked up any things that list who people want to play the characters (probably because they would just really irritate me), but I agree with what you said about Opal needing to have a dark-beauty about her. I can kind of see Kiera pulling that off, but she's need black hair (right?). ha, that'd be kind of awesome though, cause if she had black hair, you wouldn't really picture her as Elizabeth.

Did you read somewhere that Kiera Knightly is rumored to play her or something...? Because you seem to be really freaking out about her...

Yes. I freak out easily when it comes to casting particular people for particular roles, even if the threat is only a rumor. Actually, I saw Keira playing Holly in a fanmade trailor on this site . . . it kind of freaked me out, and then on the Eoin Colfer Official Website I found many people were advocating her for the role. So yes, I am freaked. Even though I seriously doubt she will play, it is the thought that gets me upset.

Oh well, yeah, I guess that gives you credibility to freak out. But I seriously doubt that EC would let that happen. (of course, she isn't really that old I guess...NO!
He better just want unknowns, seriously, unknowns!!

Now you're freaking me out.
