Pure Flix Space Trilogy Fancastby don-24930 | created - 3 months ago | updated - 1 week ago | Public
If Hollywood is slow to make movies of C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, perhaps this is an opportunity for Christian filmmakers such as Pure Flix to get the job done, either by themselves, jointly with a Hollywood Studio, or in association with another independent production company such as Walden Media, who did the Narnia movies. (This is assuming they could obtain permission from Douglas Gresham.) Production costs could also be cut with help from LA Castle Studios and their virtual sets, for places such as spaceships, Malacandra, Perelandra, and even 1940's England. Here are my fancasting choices for each major character. I include actors from Christian film (a lot of them are from Pure Flix movies,) along with a few Hollywood actors, as mainstream actors do frequently cross over into Christian film. Note: Hopefully the American actors who are cast for British roles can perform in a British accent, perhaps with coaching from Brad Heller and his Heller Approach.
