Uglies Casting?

Periodically I brows the Internet Movie Database looking for updates on casting and production of my favorite books.  Today while browsing the status of the movie version of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld I noticed that they completed some of the casting.  The release date still says 2011 but gives no other indication on how things are progressing.  I think they chose well casting actor Kaya Scodelairo as Shay as she seems to have a cold edgy look.  I can be convinced that actor Lucas Till could be David but I am not as sure about India Eisley playing Tally.....What do you think?

Wow I really like her for Tally, but you're right about Kaya Scodelairo for Shay :/

I'm not always a fan of books I love being turned into movies (they never live up to my expectations), however, I'm really interested to see how they do this one.

Thanks for sharing this!

My kid can't wait to see this. I loved the series and she and I will be at the movie whenever it opens. Of course, I'd have to post a review on my site. Thanks for giving up this teaser.

I tried to read the series a couple years ago and was unable to get into it... I'll probably go see the movie though! Thanks for this update.

I love the uglies series but I am always a little nervous when I hear a good book is being made into a movie.

I think Emily Browning should play tally. She looks really innocent but powerful, smart and dangerous aswell...just like tally!

I really don't think Lucas Till should play David. I always imagined him looking..rougher.

There has been absolutely no casting for Uglies. The rights to make it into a movie have been bought but it is still what's called an option. It says 2011, but that's when the option is up. Scott Westerfeld only has producers on board. No directors, screen-writers, or even thoughts of actors. Contemplating who will play who may be fun, but there are many talented actors out there who will be consider for roles. They want mostly unknowns from the cast. I just wanted everyone to be updated.

Well, the movie is coming out in November 2012 now.I dont knos which day of November it is coming out. I have read the all the books in the series and when I have found out that Lucas Till is playing David in the movie I was happy.But I honestly think that India Eisley should not play Tally she just doesnt have a look for her and if you have watched The Secret Life Of The American Teenager she is great in it ,but from her character in the show and Tally are totally different.I dont know who is playing Tally but I hope she is good.

what the hell??? Tally is supposed to have THIN LIPS, SQUINTY EYES, SQUASHED-IN NOSE and FRIZZY CURLY HAIR. This is NOT Tally Youngblood, neither is Emily Browning. Have you guys actually read the books? Same goes for Shay, with her FULL LIPS, "TOO FAR APART" EYES, and WIDE FOREHEAD; and David, with his HIGH FOREHEAD and BIG NOSE like WTF HAVE YOU BEEN SMOKING THEY DON'T LOOK LIKE THE CHARACTERS AT ALL

Abelha..... the characters in uglies look like normal people. It's just in their society they created people who are absolutely perfect, so you can find normal people's faults easier. These actors can fit these parts very well.
