I am a new member of the community and thought I'd come and saw hello!
I love "The Lions of Al-Rassan" by GGK and was very excited when a search on it took me to imdb where it told me that there was going to be a movie made based on it, being directed by Edward Zwick. I was wondering how do people feel about it? Some people on the discussion board were talking about Zwick as being a good director, but as I personally didn't really like "The Last Samurai" I'm a bit meh about it, but am hoping for the best!
So far not much information has been released about the movie but there's some speculation about casting Shohreh Aghdashloo and Sarah Shahi(?).
Even though strictly speaking Lions is a fantasy, it's based on Moorish Spain so it would be good if they could get some actors who would identify with those ethnicities but I dunno, we're probably more likely to get some Hollywood bigshots like Orlando Bloom or something lol.
