I know this is an old topic, but I'm bored so I'll bump it up. XD

Anyway, I think that it might make a cool CG movie or something like that... since more than half of anything shown on screen would have to be done by computer... And what the actors looked like wouldn't be a huge problem. But, then again, people would take their two year olds to it thinking it was a movie about a friendly flying whale. And I have the sneaking suspicion that Alek would pick up an American accent somewhere...  ::)

Anyway, I agree with that they should all be played by native born actors too. Except I don't know many Austrian actors, except ARNOLD (he was born in Austria, right? ??? )  and it's pretty hard to imagine him in the stormwalker... XD Well, believably imagine him in the stormwalker anyway...

It will probably never be made into a movie, though, because it has no Nazis in it.... Silly film industry... :(

Arnold: GET TO DA STORMWALKER!
xD

I think it would be amazing if Miyazaki made it into a movie. Although, there would still be the issue of people thinking it was about a friendly flying whale... But it would probably be PG 13.

Yeah, but Miyazaki wouldn't stick to the plot at all. He'd only make a movie with a similar plot and setting. Just speaking as a Diana Wynne Jones fan. Her book Howl's Moving Castle is just as good as his movie of it, but they have very little in common...

But I would still like to see what he'd do with it.

It'd make a good movie though the makers will probably cut out half a million scenes.

If miyazaki followed the plot (which he probably wouldn't) it would be an AMAZING movie.

It would. He has quite a bit of experience in the whole steampunk thing (like Castle in the Sky and Howl's Moving Castle) not to mention his obsession with aviation (there's a flying sequence in all of his films except Princess Mononoke), and in Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, there are genetically egineered animals. So he pretty much has experience with all those types of things already.

And I kind of think that he would make Deryn the main character, considering how he likes to focus on heroines. Alek might get a bit shunted to the wayside.  :-\

But still, it would be epically amazing.

Amazing! Leviathan and Miyazaki are both just so fantastic!
Best. Idea. Evar!
I agree, it would be epic. I would hate a live action version of it. So many good  books made lame movies.

Like "Nim's Island." I seriously think they ignored everything in that book except the funny animals.

The only really good book to movie adaptation I've ever read/seen was Bridge to Terabithia. It was as exact to the book as a movie can get.

Sorry for off-topicness!
