Re: His Dark Material

I loved the books! I didn't know there was going to be a movie, but I'm looking forward to it.

Re: His Dark Material

According to His Dark Materials.org the movie comes out in December of '07, as of Sept of '05 no actors have been approached, and there is a place where you can send information about yourself if you'd like to try out for casting - along with some other interesting info to check out

Re: His Dark Material

My brother-in-law has been telling me for years that I should read them, then this year he brought me all three for my birthday. I've read about 3 pages of the first one, then gave up because I couldn't get into them. What do you think, should I try reading them again?

Re: His Dark Material

AHH!
Sorry sorry sorry! I re-read my post, and I realise now that you guys thought I meant I already had a part as an extra...
I meant 'Im gonna try to be an extra'.
Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up...I haven't contacted the people making the movie, though I doubt there's any point getting in touch if you only want to be an extra. I'll keep an eye on their site and when they start looking for extras, I'm there!

Re: His Dark Material

I'd like to be in His Dark Materials-movie, but...I'm too old to be Lyra, too young to be Mrs Coulter or Mary Malone, and not so beautiful to be Serafina Pekkala !!!

Re: His Dark Material

What great books! And a movie? I've thought for a long time that they should make a film of these series because they're just so good. Did I read someone saying it's coming out in Dec07?

I know exactly what you're talking about; it took me three tries to get into them. You just need to give it time and keep reading because the series really, truly does get good. They are up there in HP calibur.

Re: His Dark Material

Besides HP this is my favorite series!!! The 1st book was amazing, 2nd was okay but the 3rd was brillent! The story is so amazing and I loved the ending even though it was sad. Very oringinal and wonderful. I talked my friend into reading it too and she loved it. I wish there could have been more.

Re: His Dark Material

abbeyjewel, why thank you!

I agree above, the second isn't as exciting as the first or third, but it's still a great book. The third is definitely my favorite. Has anyone read anything else by Phillip Pullman?
