Me too - and there was a lot of confidence in the blog post about it really happening. I just hope it doesn't fall into the same category as Guillermo Del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness and Quentin Tarantino's Luke Cage: Hero For Hire...I will certainly be looking forward to this.
I totally agree. Both about Jolie and the accents.I actually think Jolie would be very good. Strong character and she's very good at accents; for me at least, I don't think an American accent would work for that part. In fact I think the whole of the Manticore Star Kingdom would work best with UK based accents (eg Scottish for Gryphon - they seem to have very Scottish attitudes to stuff). But maybe I'm biased
A little bit of nitpicking here, but go and look at pictures of her growing up. She was born with those, oddly enough.Wow, I've always thought that Jolie would be a perfect Honor Harrington! Except that she went and got those balloon lips, which just don't work for me. Can those be removed?
Hmm. Looks like you may be right. I sure don't remember them being like they are now, though. It was the Lara Croft promos that brought her to my attention as a likely Honor, and it seemed like her lips ballooned after that -- maybe they had some help at some point. I suppose I'd get over it if she did us proud in the part, though.A little bit of nitpicking here, but go and look at pictures of her growing up. She was born with those, oddly enough.
Hm, good point. But since we've never heard her talk, it might just seem natural. I was thinking also of something along the line of a Taiwanese accent picking up on her Oriental heritage, but then realized her accent would have to come from Sphinx and her father's people.TDZ, I know what you mean about the lips...
Parson, not sure about posh New York but maybe, I could agree with the Aussie accent for Sphinx.... except I don't think I could live with an Aussie accented Honor!
I can't think of any actresses that aren't. Not even Lucy Lawless at 6' (185cm) or so. It's not completely clear, but the way Honor is depicted makes her sound about two metres tall. Maybe a little less.She's way too short, but Kristin Kreuk has a look that might make a good Honor.
That's the impression I always got as well. It makes finding an appropriate actress to play Honor somewhat problematic.I can't think of any actresses that aren't.
