THR: Casting issues delaying progress on [ALADN]    islander on Jul 11, 07:13

shooting for Aladdin now planned to start in August {nm}   Oleg_Max on Jul 11, 07:45

A month is not uncommon. That headline and article tone was way too negative. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 11, 07:55

yeap, that was exacly my point. no biggie. {nm}   Oleg_Max on Jul 11, 08:06

Just to recap what was in the article...   RazorHawk on Jul 11, 08:36

Riz Ahmed could play Jafar. The article is implying there are no Middle Eastern actor capable of playing Aladdin. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 11, 09:38

What about Amir Arison for one of the roles? He'd bring a comedic flare. {nm}   RollingThunder on Jul 11, 09:49

or, white director and execs have no idea(desire?) to hire non-white {nm}   islander on Jul 11, 09:50

MNAIR or GCHAD could find the right Aladdin. ALEE found SSHAR, he's young enough to play Aladdin. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 11, 10:55

when you think Will Smith is the best choice for Genie, probably already doomed {nm}   slipping jimmy on Jul 11, 11:01

they had me at Guy Ritchie directing a children's musical {nm}   RazorHawk on Jul 11, 11:33

Ansel Elgort it is, then {nm}   slipping jimmy on Jul 11, 10:42

if Riz Ahmed isnt available, i look like him & could play aladdin ;) {nm}   adrenalin112 on Jul 11, 10:48

Naomi Scott or Tara Sutaria eyed to play Jasmine; Achraf Koutet, Mena Massoud and George Kosturos up for Aladdin. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 11, 07:53

Achraf Koutet, Mena Massoud and George Kosturos were part of the most recent screen tests (which did not go well)...   RazorHawk on Jul 11, 08:39

are still in the running {nm}   Antibody on Jul 11, 09:34
