I just read all 9 of the Spooks Apprentice books last week. I am thrilled that they are making this into a movie! Although I do think that the 2 young actors are not young enough. They are supposed to be around 12 in the first book of the series.

Either way, I will still be seeing this movie!

For a second I thought she was Jewel.

actually nick carter might be better looking than this guy.

no. Alex should be in mortal instruments. has he confirmed this role yet?

Sounds awesome! Looks like Alex will be back stroking in Shia LaBeouf’s bank roll soon (if u get what I mean). I mean how many actors get their big break working with Michale Bay and Steven Spielsberb (SP)? Not many.

Has nobody read the book? Tom and Alice are young teenagers – 12, 13, 15 max. This is typical Hollywood flavor-of-the-month casting.

I agree with ctgng. What are they trying to do – make Tom Ward a late
teen or young adult? First book Tom is 12. Sixth book Tom turns 15.
The powers that be in Hollywood already screwed up 2 other movies
(Cirque du Freak: the Vampire’s Assistant and Percy Jackson: The
Lightning Thief). Made the main characters older at 16 instead of 12-
13. Alex Pettyfer is a great actor but too old for Tom Ward. Hollywood,
please consider keeping the main character Tom Ward) at 12 or 13.
2 young actors I think would be freat are Asa Butterfield and Uriah Shelton. Still, I am anxious to see this movie.

Sorry for the spelling in previous post.

What the they cant do this its gonna spoil the books the actors are too old to play the roles of tom ward and alice deane how annoying. The only reason they are hiring him is because people think he is hot well he’s not even that hot. This movie will be crap just know that hollywood sucks.
