The Artemis Fowl Movie has been rumoured since 2001, shortly after the first book was initially released. The film remained in ‘Development Hell’ until 2011.
In 2013, ‘Walt Disney Pictures’ announced that an Artemis Fowl Film would be made, and it would cover the events of ‘Artemis Fowl’ and ‘Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident.’ The Weinstein Company is also attached to produce the movie, with the screen play being written by Michael Goldenberg (known for writing the screenplays for ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.’)
Whilst we don’t have any idea of who will be starring or directing, we know that Eoin Colfer told The Irish Independent that he would like Saoirse Ronan to play the role of Holly Short. Asa Butterfield is a huge favourite to play Artemis within the fan community, however he gets older and less suitable for the role as time ticks on!
