Disney options Lauren Kate’s Fallen novel

December 10

Fallen

Medora was kind enough to point me in the direction of this news item and it was a tough call between BSCkids and this site, but in the end I felt it belonged here.  Disney has optioned the rights to Lauren Kate’s young adult novel Fallen that heavily features angels.  Some believe that vampires and werewolves are taking a back seat to the next trend which will be a slew of angel related books and movies.  Disney looks to believe the same thing with this move.

Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray will produce the film and the book which was released by Delacorte Books is part of a four part series.  Disney made sure to get all of them included in this deal, so that way if it takes off they are already wrapped up.  The story is about a girl that is torn between two men, she is not aware of the fact that they have battled over her for many lifetimes and are fallen angles.

I do not know, when you start talking about angels you bring religion to the table, so you heard it here first, I do not think this next fad will be as big as vampires and werewolves.

 

  1. Hi,
    I was just curious about who they have in mind to play the main characters in the upcoming movie. I was also wondering if they are doing casting calls for less dominant characters that are still a major part of the story (ie: Arrianne). Location and dates and possible alternitives to actuall physical in person auditions (sample DVD perhaphs?) would also be helpful and extremly appreciated if this knowladge is out there somewhere.

    Muchly appreciated

  2. I was also curious about the opportunity to attend any casting calls for this movie. If any information could be giving about requirments, times, dates, locations, that would be great.

  3. Hi i was allso very intersted in finding out if a movie was coming out and if so would anyone have the oppternity to audition and where would the auditions being held i would like to know If any information could be giving about requirments, times, dates, locations thanks

  4. Hi, I was also wondering when and where casting calls are, and if we could post them online? I’m from Australia & I’d really like to try and get a role because I’m in love with the book and because I’ve been acting for years now. Thank you so much 🙂

  5. This sounds great, I read the book and kept thinking about how I would love to be in a movie of it. Let me know when casting calls are and where! <3

  6. Hello. Please, any information about casting calls or any auditions for this production would be extremely appreciated. Thank you (:

  7. I would like to know if they had any casting calls any where? I love acting and I love these books and I think it would b great to act in. When I read that Disney was gonna do this book into a movie I was really shocked becuase when I read this book(2times) it never came acroos to me as a Disney movie at all. I believe that they would have to take alot put of the book to barley make the Disney rating of PG and I feel that if they do that then the movie will be a big waste of time and money and would kind of be a disgrace to Lauren Kate herself, knowing that she put alot of work time and effort into this book that it won’t be at it’s full potental in the movie because it has to be within Disney guidelines. I don’t think Disney should do this movie at all but if it does come out as a movie for Disney I would prefer that they use fresher faces rather then the same people they use like Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato or Bridget Mendler. It’s not that I don’t like any of those people it’s just that I would prefer to see a new face. And beside I think the Disney girls (you could call them) have alot on their plates and I don’t think they have “IT” to play Luce because Luce isn’t like any other charater any of them had played before. I wouldn’t want them to mess up the movie. Beside who really wants to keep seeing their faces taking up all the movie rolls other young aspiring actress can play.

  8. Hello!I was also curious about the casting calls.I’ve read the book and it was really a masterpiece i couldn’t stop reading it….I would love to be a part of this but unfortunately I am from Greece and I can see that it’s really hard for me here to attend but if there is a slightly chance for me to do it I am willing to take it.So let me know if any information comes up for requirements, time,dates,locations….and I’ll see what I can do….Thanks:)

  9. Hello!!My name is Julia and im 14 and i simply love this book.I live in Toronto now,and i wanted to audition for the movie,i’d like to play Luce really badly,im in love with her personality,it realates soo much to me.Thanks 😉

  10. Hey i would realy like to go out for the roll of gabbe! I was wondering if we were going to be allowed to audition! Are there going to be any open auditions? and when will they be?

  11. i am a actress and i would love it if you can let me know when and where these auditions will take place, I love these books and this could finally be my big break. please and thank you

  12. I just can’t believe what I’m hearing now. It’s really awesome that they’re making a movie because I love the book. Although I do agree with KBeiber about Disney making the movie. Hey, and if you need someone to play Luce, Penn, or Arriane, call me.

  13. they already picked an actress to play luce and its kaya Scodelario
    she play effy stonem from skins

  14. Wow! You’ve gotta be kidding me! Disney and Fallen Angels with some mild violence? Hmm, well, I think I’ll agree with you. It may not be as big as Wizards, Vamps&Werewolves movies.

  15. I haven’t read Fallen but I know many people like or even love this story but I really think Disney would do a great job for they are well known and well”Pirates of the Carribean” is made by disney you are over looking the fact that they do not only produce fairy tales but adventures comedy love and I’m sure they can handle this…Good Luck Disney

  16. Hello,

    My names Danica, I am from Australia and I’m very interested in any information reguarding Auditions for a role in this movie.

    I posses a few years of acting skills and truly believe and connect to the story line in the Fallen books.

  17. seems our little actress, kaya scodelario has her hands full since she’s interested in the role of katniss everdeen from the hunger games, also

  18. Hi
    If anyone knows anything about casting could they let me know as I’d love to play Arriane, I also live near London so if there’s any casting for the film it’ll be easy access,
    thanks

  19. Hi, my name is Kaitlyn Price and I really enjoyed the books so far and I am totally a Daniel girl. I was on team Cam but then he started to scare me. I really love the series so far. So much so that I was wondering if anyone knew anything about open casting calls or locations, dates, times, anything? I really think it would be a great experience. Acting is my passion and I hope that I will be able to pursue it as a profession one day. Anything helps.

    Warm regards,
    kprice:)

  20. Shit, I really started something didn’t I. LOL well I do hope that we all at least get a shot at an audition. Im in the same little boat as Lina from Greece given my current residential area being the South West Of Western Australia… NOTHING comes to or happens in W.A….. But if auditions come to Perth (super unlikely considering that if anything does come to Australia it makes a bee line for the EAST coast even though its widely know that all the good stuff is over west lol) then I id be there in jiffy 🙂 ANYONE WHO CAN HELP ANY OF US (WHO ARE PROBABLY JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER THAN THOSE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE PICKED UP BY DISNEY ETC BUT JUST HAVENT BE “FOUND” YET) WITH SOME DETAILS WE WILL YOU LOVE FOREVER 😀

    Thank you, Thank you very much

  21. Hi there,
    I am also, along with all the others, interested in audition and casting info. I’m from New Zealand which I think is even more far away than greece or australia haha. I have just started these books and they are amazing! I would love to play any character in the movies. I’m 5’0” and small so I think I would suit the character of Penn, Molly or Arriane. I would be happy to play anyone though. THANKS!!!

  22. Hi! I really like to know all about the castings and everything cause I’m interested too I’m from another country but I know I can do it, im still a teen so please is the biggest dream in my live i really want something like that and I already read the book and I love it.
    So please any information will be amazing … PLEASE! AND THANKS !

  23. Hi there,
    I have read the first two books of this series and I love it so much. I realized that the main character is almost like me in some aspects. The story has really inspired me to write some more and, of course, it has respured my love for angels. I understand that disney has the rights to this… I really hope it doesn’t ruin it. This book series is a very good one, and should be created with amazing people, which I feel are the two producers that took to this. I am very interested in seeing about a casting call for this movie, I have a lot of acting experience and feel like I could fit into Lucinda Price like a hand to a glove. Please send me any information you may have and I would love to try out.

    I have high hopes for this.

    Forever and Always,
    Rebecca

  24. I really hope Disney doesn’t actually get the rights to the movie. Them and their teeniebopper (obsessive tween fans) always ruin these things for me.

  25. I would also love to know when there are going to be casting calls and i know they’re going to be soon because the date of the movie release is 2012 and i’ve been through the casting process before for a few movies acctually i have an agency and everything any information would be greatly appretiated

  26. There is honestly no possible way to cast this early at that point in time they would be writting the script. just so everyone knows 🙂

  27. Hi! Like a lot of other commenters I’m interested to know the information of where I would have to send my headshot and resume… I’m involved in every acting community in town, I’ve competed alongside the top actors of my state (Florida) and I can play piano and sing. I know there is a very slim chance that I’d be considered since I’m not in the screen actors guild… But hey! It’s worth a shot… wilder things have happened… 😀

  28. Hi, I’m from Sydney Australia. Really interested in any information about casting calls for Fallen. Considering I don’t live in the U.S I can send a DVD if possible for my audition.
    Thanks lots 🙂

  29. I was wondering if they are doing casting calls for less dominant characters that are still a major part of the story (ie: Arrianne, it’s my dream to play her). Location and dates would also be apreciated, along with character discriptions, thank you

  30. Hello. I also, like many others, am interested in participating in this movie. You want to see or acting or do you want to believe it the real thing? I’m your girl. Thank you.

  31. i would like to know if they are looking for extras it would be amazing to be an extra in that movie..

  32. hi, i was wondering if there is any opening in being an extra for the move Fallen. My older sister and I would love to participate within the move. Also if you have any other movies coming out we would be interested in that also.

  33. Hi, my name is Kelsey and I’m also interested in casting calls so any information would be awesome! 🙂 please and thank you!

  34. Hi,my name is Alicia and I’m about to turn 14. I live in Malaysia and Lauren Kate just visited here. I really hope they’ll be looking for an Asian young actress for the movie as Luce,Penn,Arriane etc. I love to act since I was 5 so I hope they’ll open an audition here in Malaysia.

  35. I, too would like to audition for any female part, big or small, in this movie. Information on auditions are needed please. 🙂 I am 14, but people tell me all the time that I look older than that(in this case that’s a good thing hahaha) My natural hair color is brown but I am completely fine with dying it black for the part. I can read any section from the book or entirely new material. If the cast has already been made, that information would be helpful too. I have fallen(haha) completely in love with these books and would do anything to audition. If the cast has already been made but you need extras, notify me also. Thanks a bunch! I’m a huge fan of Disney! 😀

  36. Also, I feel that this might be helpful information. I can cry on cue. Just a quick extra comment ha

  37. the books are amazing, still finishing passion, i would, like most other people, love to be able to audition, so if anyone finds anything about that i would really appriciate information on it.

  44. Hi 🙂
    I’m Sam, I’m from South Africa, yo!
    I’ve ‘fallen in love’ (see what I did there?) With this series. Since I started reading the series I’ve always stated that I was meant to play Luce, now I know many girls say this.. So, I was wondering if there are auditions for this movie? I need to at least try and see if I could get the role. My plan would hopefully be sending in a DVD and all that and if they do consider me but would rather prefer a live audition to see, my family and I would make plans to get to that audition. I am passionate about the arts (acting, music etc). So please, if anyone has details, please let me know 🙂

    – Sam (^^ ,)

  45. Seeing that everyones posting information on their appearances, why not me? Haha.
    I am 17, naturally have dark brown hair (Thanks to my dad whom of which is Portuguese), I am petite, hazel/brown eyes, height? I suck with ft so I’ll just say not at all tall but not at all short maybe.. 5’something.. I guess.. ‘Playing’ Luce would be like ‘playing’ myself. I’m much like her. I am a very passionate person (like she is, not in a sexual sense but more like.. She knows who she’s meant for and she won’t give up) she’s shy and all that. So again, let me know 🙂

    Cheer-ee-o!

She knows who she’s meant for and she won’t give up on that) So again, let me know 🙂

    Cheer-ee-o!
