Say WHAT?

I just read on Donna's blog that a movie of Aprilynne Pike's WINGS in the making. And playing the main role of Laurel is... Miley Cyrus. Read an article about it HERE. Read what Aprilynne's husband says HERE.

Thoughts? Opinions? Comment.

  1. I like Miley Cyrus! I've never read the book so I can't say whether or not I think she makes a good Laurel. Everyone seems to hate her, but I think she's a good actress!

  2. Ew. That's gross. She doesn't even have blonde hair. So if they dye it for the role or whatever, it'll look like Hannah Montana is playing a faerie.

    Besides, I don't think Wings would translate well into a movie. The story is just to cheesy for the big screen. A lot of things would have to be added and cut out to make it appealing to audiences. Some books are best kept as books, you know? Like Beastly. I can't wait to see how the film interpretation of THAT story turns out. Vanessa Hudgens? Really? That's just laughable.

    Ahh. It felt good to unleash all that sarcasm and criticism :) It's healthy to let it out now and then.

  5. I won't be seeing the movie. I don't think Miley is talented, and she annoys me.

  6. Hmmm, I'm not a fan of the idea. They should have gotten a cute "unknown", I dont really picture Miley as Laurel.

  8. Miley's perfect as Hannah Montana, but apart from that, I don't know. I think she won't do justice to Laurel's character.

  9. I haven't read the book, and I am kind of torn. I wanted to read it, but I have read so many conflicting reviews. As far as the Miley Cyrus thing...Disney is producing the movie, and she has a huge following and has made a lot of money for Disney. Disney is well known for using specific actors and actresses and backing them with tons of stuff way back since Jodie Foster. I say give the kid a chance.

  10. I just finished the book and loved Laurel's character even though the story was a bit odd and yes, cheesy in some places. Although I don't harbor any unpleasant feelings towards Mylie Cyrus, I do think that choosing a well-known actress was a bad idea on Disney's part. Laurel's character is ethereal - well, she's a plant! And Mylie is unmistakably quite human.

    Homigosh!!! the first thing i did was hit the screen. then i called my step-mom who read's these. now i am typing this. NO NO NO NO NO!!! The point of these books is to create a group of mythical creatures that ARE NOT real. you cannot have a person play this part because Laurel is perfect, she can't be made because how many people do u know that are perfectly symmetrical... um i can answer that for u NONE! they don't have blood and they don't get hair on their face! i am 100,000,000% sure Miley does. honestly i don't hate her but honestly... that is the reason these are books... so that you can IMAGEN what they look like not get told to picture them a certain way!!! i am soooooooooooooooooooooooo MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! plus she is not a white blond and blue eyed person! they should at least use the girl from the "illusions" trailer cuz she kinda' looks like Laurel! wow wow wow i am soooo mad i want to kill a carrot right now! i might too but seriously people COME ON!!! honestly right now i feel like Chelsea, just saying what is on my mind and not worrying about what i say and really it does feel REALLY good! also Disney? come on! even though Disney is okkk but even if the parts are cheesy... they won't be able yo put in a lot of those "cheesy" parts so that'll make it suck too!!!
