DISCWORLD: The Movie - Casting CouchImagine with us, if you will...

The Great Pterry Pratchett has written a screenplay for a Discworld movie. He has submitted it to movie companies to be turned down a couple of times to find on the third time that the screenplay has been accepted. On the first page of the manuscript is the name of the movie: "                     : AKA Discworld - The Movie" (and Pterry thanks Bugarup University's own Silent Contemplator of Irrelevant Ideas for the title.)

On the second page is the cast that Pterry has in mind that would be perfect for the movie. The movie exec beams with excitement. All the crowd pleasers are in there and the stars that the public love to hate. The exec grabs Pterry's hand for a handshake and pumps it like a man dieing of thirst pumping the handle on water pump

Pterry leaves the office rubbing life back into his hand after the handshake and with a cheque in his pocket which carries on it a number with a fair few zeros on the end. On the street he sees the Bugarup University Faculty.

"Hold on to your wizard's hats people, we're Holy Wood bound!"

A cheer rises up from the from the group, along with beer and banged grains.

NB: Visiting some of the character profiles may contain spoilers for books unread. Proceed with caution. With the release of Fifth Elephant in paperback and The Truth in hardback November 2000 we are accepting all character suggestions and placing them on the site.

So rush out there and get Fifth Elephant or even The Truth, have a good read then send in your suggestions :-)
