As mentioned several weeks ago, we are in the process of putting together a fan feedback poll. The subject of the poll is: Who would you vote for to play the main characters of Ancients & Immortals: Book Seven; Archangels In Exile, in a live action film?
Now, I must say that we have received some rather interesting nominees. Some of them make sense for visual reasons or “box office draw” reasons, while others, ahem…well, not so much. Nevertheless, as previously indicated, the top nominated names will be posted on the site for your voting consideration, so if you have a favorite, now is the time to speak and make your voice heard.
In the meantime, interestingly enough, after significant badgering we were able to obtain the author’s top picks for the main characters, his “dream team”, of sorts. Some of which are on the email votes list, and are readily recognizable to the average filmgoer, while others will have a number of you heading over to IMDB or Google to do a lookup. Alright, honestly, a couple of us had to research a couple of the names also…but regardless, with no further ado, here are Cailloux Williams’ casting picks:
Chike: Henry Simmons(1st), Boris Kodjoe(2nd), Dwayne Johnson(3rd)
Hondo: Djimon Honsou(1st), Henry Simmons(2nd)
Kinah: Sanaa Lathan, (a close 2nd and 3rd are Jamaican and African actresses – names not given)
Sadiki: Don Cheadle
Jelani: Terry Crews(1st), Michael Clark Duncan(a close 2nd)
Chionesu: Dennis Haysbert
Baruti: Isaach de Bankole(1st), Sebastien Foucan(2nd)
Intriguing list, eh? We thought so too. Want to get in on the casting action? Drop us a note with your picks.
