And our top three actors will be:
Rose: Zoey Deutch
Lissa: Lucy Fry
Dimitri: Danila Kozlovski
And, yes, Kozlovski is Russian. :-)
Sounds like their looking to shoot the movie this Summer.
The movie will be titled "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters", at least that's the word from all the official sources I've seen at this point. According to the Official Vampire Academy Movie Facebook Page, Richelle Mead played a key role in choosing this name.
You can read more about the director and script at Deadline.com: "Vampire Academy" Film Takes Flight and see what Richelle Mead has to say about the casting and name on her site.
The name change doesn't bother me since it's always tricky having a series with the same name as the first book. Having the extra name will help clarify the films - assuming it does well enough for them to make more than one. What do you think of the name change?
What about the Actors?
Personally, I think they're a lot better than many of the other suggestions I heard slung around, but I like to reserve judgement till I see some of their acting. Are they what you expected? Better? Worse?
