I just realized Paul Wesley from The Vampire Diaries would be absolutely perfect to play Niall, then upon further googling remembered that one of the guys I was favouriting for Irial, Ian Somerhalder, already plays Mr. Wesley’s brother on The Vampire Diaries and really, we don’t want the Wicked Lovely movie being a CW hangout… Then again, I agree with the internet in that Jensen Ackles from Supernatural would make a great Niall, and there’s so many good choices for Irial but I can’t remember any of them right now because I am lazy and should have done a proper fancast post months ago.
It has now been almost a year since Universal dropped the Wicked Lovely movie. How much longer is it going to take until it’s picked up by another studio and we actually get a movie? I mean come on - we’re talking a script by the screenwriter of Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas, direction by the director of American Psycho, there’s producers attached already, and the subject matter should spell BIG FUCKING MONEY because it’s a) aimed at the same kind of readers that made Twilight and The Hunger Games huge, a smaller fanbase but just as rabid, (except smarter) and b) the story is fifteen times better, written ten times better and features characters who are actually likeable because they are not cardboard. Your move, Hollywood.
