It seems like it is taking forever for the Ranger's Apprentice Movie to be released--or even started for that matter! USA Today did a recent interview with the author John Flanigan and asked about the movie. (scroll down to see latest video release) Here were his remarks:
"What is the status of the film adaptation of the series? Who are some people you think could star in the movie?
I can't say too much, but it's looking good - better than it has for months, in fact. Just let everyone keep their fingers crossed. Casting? I have only two favourites for roles. I'd love to see Eric Bana as Halt. He'd have to be greyed up and scruffied for the role, of course. (Is 'scruffied' a word?) And I think Baron Arald could be played perfectly by an english TV actor called Martin Clunes. He's appeared in a wonderful series called Doc Martin. I don't know if it ever made it to the US."
So, I wouldn't hold your breath, but that sounds like the best news we have heard in a while.
Here is the latest news video regarding the movie release from random House.
