    its such a dynamic casting… James & Jessica will be brilliant… James replaced Joel Madden (Warior) and he is indeed has a great potential but he still has to prove himself.. I think he rejected 300 prequel for this movie now I don’t think it was a wise decision.

    Very excited to see James McAvoy back in the romance department, especially in a unique romance film. Jessica is so good too that can’t help but expect great things from this duo.

    I am a big James McAvoy fan…I think his talent has gone largely unsung because he does not necessarily play the big heroic types. I saw him live last year….he was so intelligent, articulate, polite and poignantly charming. I admire him for the work he has done to date and look forward to more great work!

    I am thrilled with any movie that has McAvoy in it. He invests so much in his roles & always manages to make his co-stars even better. Good stuff.
