    I’m sure you’re getting a lot of movie questions, so sorry to bother, but, as both an aspiring author and film-maker, it shocked me that in a statement Jun put out it said you had almost nothing to do with the movie. Was that your choice? Or your agents/publishers/Netflix? Most authors are very heavily involved in casting, set design and…[Read more]

        Soman said the main reason he wanted to focus on the books and that he would try to micro-manage the movie if he had a bigger part in planning it. He has spent years writing the script and revising it, so he says we will be happy with it when it comes out.

        allthegoodusernamesaretaken replied 2 weeks ago

        soman is listed a producer on the film I think, so he does have a bit of influence, but not loads– I think it’s actually pretty rare for authors to have a lot of power, since they have to sell the rights to the book to get a film deal, and then its basically out of their hands, after that– it’s lucky he’s involved as much as he is, tbh. not…[Read more]

        I think that the cast should be diverse. That being said I personally want Sophie and Agatha to be casted the same as we see them in the books. Soman made them that way for a reason (the stereotypes) and I really want to see that same stereotype happen in the movie.

          iceangel replied 3 weeks, 1 day ago

          It’s considered desirable in mainstream beauty, which drives many girls and women to try and lose weight to get that thigh gap.
