Newsletter about film adaption of the book The Nightingale
Casting for The Nightingale movie
Hi everyone this is your book blogger Bianca giving
you new information about upcoming book related news whether they are writing
new books and when they’ll be published to whether a movie or tv adaption of a
book is coming out. I’m friends with a few authors on Facebook and follow some
on instagram which makes it easier to get the scoop on everything books.
Otherwise I just dig and investigate on my own if I can’t get the news from the
author themselves. I will apologize for being a week or two late in providing
this information but it concerns the film adaption of the book The Nightingale
written by Kristin Hannah.
We’ve known that the film adaption version of The
Nightingale has been happening for quite some time. Recently they announced who
would be cast as the main leads sisters Viviane and Isabelle. Dakota Fanning
and her younger sister Elle Fanning, famous for being Sleeping Beauty in the
live action Maleficent film will play the sisters. Do a google search and
numerous articles as well as the authors Facebook page (and possibly her
account) will talk about it. In my personal view both sisters are good
actresses but I don’t think they are right for the roles of Viviane and
Isabelle considering that Viviane was already a mother and much older probably
in her 30s by the time World War II started and Isabelle was in her 20s. Its also
kind of cliché and lazy in my opinion to cast two sisters to literally play two
sisters they also still look like girls instead of women in my opinion.
I’ll still watch it when its available to view and
then I will do a book vs screen adaption review and let you guys know which is
better and how/if Hollywood will screw things up. Which knowing Hollywoods bad
record of not following the book very well theres a 90% chance. I recommend
reading the book before seeing the film you’re in for a good story.
