Vampire Academy News!

If you’ve been following the blog for a while you know I’m a huge fan of Richelle Mead, and the Vampire Academy series is one of my favourites! So imagine my excitement when I woke up this morning to this awesome movie news!

First, the title. It was revealed yesterday I think, and It’ll be Vampire Academy – Blood Sisters. This is actually the title of the French books (Soeurs de sang), so I wasn’t shocked but I still don’t see the connection. Either way, it’s nice to see some progress!

BUT, the amazing news is… The 3 main characters, Rose, Lissa & Dimitri, were cast!

 

 

Zoey Deutch will play the kick-ass Rose part.  I am pleased enough by this decision. She does look the part, and even though I haven’t seen any of her movies, she’ll be part of the Beautiful Creatures movie so I’ll get to see her in action very soon!

 

 

 

Lissa, the beautiful blond, will be played by Aussie star Lucy Fry. Once again, I don’t know a thing about her acting talents, but at least she looks the part!

 

 

 

And last, but certainly not least, suave and sexy Dimitri will be brought to life by Danila Kozlovskiy!!! Another unknown actor for me but I’m freaking ecstatic by this decision! First, he IS Russian! Second, he is old enough and third he is damn good looking! I was so scared they would pick someone like Ben Barnes because, in my humble opinion, he is NOT Dimitri material!

 

Here’s a second shot with long hair:

 

 

 

You can read here what Richelle as to say about the movie so far!

Are you as excited as I am??

  1. I am sooooo excited! I've seen Zoey in Ringer on the CW, but it wasn't a very well written show, so I don't feel like I can judge her acting from that. I'm looking forward to seeing her in Beautiful Creatures! I am SO. FREAKIN'. HAPPY with these three :D

    I can't wait to see the movie :) I'm pretty ok with the cast! I'm glad they are unknown actors, it makes the movie even special and we don't have a preconception about them!
    VA is my favorite series :)

  3. Great news! I read all the VA novels last month and the two bloodlines novels too...totally hooked. Lissa doesn't looks as delicate as I imagined her - the actress looks almost as kick ass as the Rose actress to me, but maybe she can be get into the Lissa character.

  5. Is the plan to create 6 movies? or group some books together? I don't see the need to name it anything other than Vampire Academy but I'm not going to fuss over the title. And I also haven't seen anything by these actors. They may fit the physical descriptions but I really hope they can bring to the screen all of the personality that makes them so alluring on paper. Thanks for the news!!

  7. Nicole: I think the director said something like he wants to see how well VA: Blood Sisters does. Also, Blood sisters I think was also the name of the book in Germany too :-) I'm excited they're making a movie out of this series. I loved this series from the beginning, and can't wait to see what they do with it. It's interesting they pick unknown actors with a known director, and I'm a bit skeptical to see what they do.

    It doesn't have a big name cast like the Mortal Instruments, that's for sure. But still, I'm excited!

  8. YAY! This really makes my day. I was starting to think that it would never be made into a movie. And I agree with you I'm very happy that they didn't choose Ben Barnes or someone like him. The fact that the actor is Russian is important in my opinion.

  9. You and me both! I love VA and I read the series at least 3 times a year... at least. I like the choices although I think Ben Barnes would be so much hotter even if he's in his 30's. LoL. I'm just really hoping it turns out more like The Hunger Games and less like Twilight. Thanks for the awesome morning news!
