Movie Monday (Vampire Academy)

Monday, February 04, 2013

Every Monday I try to bring you some awesome news about the upcoming movies of your favorite novels, as well as, reviews of movies that have released from books that you've read. 

Over the weekend, I discovered that things are moving quite smoothly for the Vampire Academy film which will start shooting sometime this summer.  I am not entirely sure of the release date but a lot of sources say that the movie will be released this year, 2013.  I am super excited about this and can't wait!  Today, I wanted to share the casting choices with you.  

I am a huge fan of the books and think the books will translate very well to film.  Mark Waters is our director and his brother, Daniel Waters, is screenwriting.  It is going to be interesting to see what they do with it.  They already have a satisfying cast. 

First off, I love that the main leads are people we don't know a lot about.  It is a sign that they know the film is going to be a big hit with all the book followers so they are choosing the cast, not because of their fame, but because of how well they look the part.  Way back when I first read the book, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, I posted a dream cast video on Youtube.  However, the final cast seems much more better than my made-up one.  Zoey Deutch will act in the upcoming Beautiful Creatures movie.  She'll be playing the role of Rose, who is the main lead.  As of right now, I have no complaints.  She fits the appearance of Rose well enough, I just hope her acting is good enough for the starring role.

Here we have Lissa.  She looks like the Lissa I imagined.  Lucy Fry hasn't been in much but I may have seen her in an episode of H2O a while ago.   I don't remember much of her acting but she looks like she can play the role of our sweet Lissa.  

Oh, Dimitri.  Dimitri is one of those book characters that are on my top five sexiest book characters of all time.  (Another thing: Edward Cullen doesn't even make it to my top 20.)  As soon as this guy was cast, I am sure there were people who complained but not me.  I am fully content of seeing Danila Kozlovski play the role of sexy Dimitri.  Why?  Well, if you google his pretty face: he is definitely Dimitri material.  Plus, he is actually Russian.  There will be no fake accent going on.  We are actually going to get a taste of the sweet, western novel-loving, Russian boy we all fell in love with in the books.  That's Danila Kozlovski.  

I am super excited about all the choices for the cast.  Are you?  Want to read more about the movie, go to ScreenCrush or

  1. I think Lucy Fry will do a kick-ass job of Lissa. Haven't heard much about the other two actors though.
