We received news today from an undisclosed but reliable source that production for the movie is about to get under way. The shortlist for the cast is as follows:
- Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Skulduggery
- Jennifer Lawrence as Valkyrie
- Bruce Willis as Mr. Bliss
- Helena Bonham Carter as Crow
- Katie McGrath as China
Based on the current schedule, production is likely to start mid 2013 as Cumberbatch wraps up production on The Hobbit. We know Derek is on in some capacity, though whether that be writer, producer, or director is not currently known. The rights are believe to be with Lions Gate, currently riding the recent success of the Hunger Games movie.
EDIT: Yes, this was an April Fools'.
