According to IMDB, the movie's coming out Valentine's Day 2014, and the three main characters have supposedly been cast. So here's my official evaluation of how who they cast lined up with my expectations:
(This girl seems pretty well cast, actually. She has that striking beauty that I imagined Rose having, but she looks like she could kick some butt too.)
(Well, at least she's blonde, but Lucy doesn't quite fit my image of Lissa. Lucy's got a quirky beauty, while I always pictured Lissa as being a more delicate, classical kind of pretty.)
(There were better pictures of him out there, but I picked this one because he had long hair like Dimitri. I think this guy has a brooding, hunky vibe that will work for Dimitri, but while Danila's hot, I always imaginged Dimitri looking a bit more Eastern European.)
So there you have it. What do you think about the casting/movie? I don't have particularly high expectations for this film, but hey, it could still be fun, right? And if you haven't read the Vampire Academy books yet, get going!
