Author Eoin Colfer has revealed that he would like Saoirse Ronan to play one of the lead roles in the big-screen adaptation of his Artemis Fowl series of books. It was recently announced that Disney will adapt his highly popular novels into a Hollywood film, and now, the Wexford-born author has spoken about his desire to keep the project in Ireland.

He told the Irish Independent: “That would be the dream, to have it made in Ireland, with Irish actors in it. Saoirse Ronan would be the dream cast for Holly (one of the main characters).” The Artemis Fowl film will be produced by Harvey Weinstein with Michael Goldenberg writing the script. Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal will be among the producers for the project. Colfer said: “They are serious guys, and even their names involved in something can give it weight and a gravitas. The writer wrote one of my favourite movies, Contact, but he also wrote [the screenplay] one of the Harry Potter’s, so he’s a guy that knows how to do science fiction and kids’ stuff.”

Saoirse Ronan

The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today that they have acquired US rights to the film “How I Live Now”, starred by Saoirse.

“Grandly scaled, beautifully crafted, with a terrific performance from the always great Saoirse Ronan, HOW I LIVE NOW is equally successful as a tense apocalyptic thriller and a great teenage romance,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “We’re very happy to once again be working with Kevin Macdonald, one of the rare filmmaker who excels at both documentary and narrative features.” Magnet is eyeing a fall theatrical release for HOW I LIVE NOW. The deal was negotiated by Magnolia/Magnet SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley and Director of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemburg with CAA for the filmmakers. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales. HOW I LIVE NOW is a Film4 and BFI presentation in association with Protagonist Pictures and Entertainment One of a Cowboy Films and Passion Pictures production in association with Prospect Entertainment.

Saoirse talked with Cath Clarke about the film “Byzantium”, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, why she declined The Hobbit and how Hollywood doesn’t have to mean meltdown. Read the article below:

A bundle of energy, Ronan is the most teenage teenage actress we’ve ever met. Child stars are not meant to grow up normal – they’re meant to grow up wild like weeds, into tangled messes. Not this child star. She emerged a fully formed actress in Atonement, only 12 when she filmed her scenes as Briony Tallis. Seven years later she’s brutally honest about the dangers of being a teenager in Hollywood. ‘I could have ended up like Lindsay Lohan. You’re being offered all these different temptations.’ Like what? ‘You know! And everyone is either telling you how great you are or talking about you behind your back. Lindsay Lohan was the ‘It’ girl from like 14. That’s a lot of pressure. If you don’t have your mam telling you “Remember, you’re still my daughter”, you’re going to go off the rails.’

We’re in a nice hotel in London. In the room next door, Ronan’s minders are in a flap. Heavy winds delayed her flight in from Dublin by two hours. Interviews need to be rescheduled. She can’t be late for the Jonathan Ross TV show. Next up she’s starring in a Ryan Gosling movie he’s directing. Cheerfully oblivious, Ronan tells us The Grand Budapest Hotel (due out next year) was her first job without her parents’ chaperoning. The hotel was ‘cool and everything’, but she had been hoping to get a place with a little kitchen of her own. ‘I wanted to be able to cook for myself,’ she says wistfully. ‘I don’t want everyone doing everything for me, you know?’ Her face is a picture of teenage earnestness. ‘I want to naturally be able to grow up as a normal person.’

To be fair, nothing much in her life is normal. Ronan was 13 when she was nominated for an Oscar for Atonement, her memories of the night are of being ‘knackered and hungry’, and she was on a film set before she could walk. Her parents emigrated to New York from Ireland in the late ’80s when times got tough. Her dad Paul took every job under the sun, including one in a bar – where a regular, an Irish actor, suggested he go along to an audition. ‘He never looked back.’

Saoirse had talked about playing Scarlet Witch not very long ago, as you can read here, and she has now addressed the rumors once again.

“[Joining Avengers 2 as Scarlet Witch is] not happening, no! I think that was just one of those little rumours floating about.”

Considering the casting for Wanda (Scarlet Witch) has already begun, it is possible that Saoirse is actually not in the running. Unless, of course, she’s been told to keep her involvement secret, although I’m not sure why that would be necessary. Maybe, if her casting is part of a big Comic Con reveal, or other such giant media event. Perhaps we shall find out soon?
