'Artemis Fowl' Author wants Saoirse Ronan in the Lead

Author Eoin Colfer is campaigning for actress Soarise Ronan in the lead

It was revealed last week that Disney is gonna ad pat the teenage crime book Artemis Fowl into a live action film franchise. Now Irish author Eoin Colfer has gone on the record as stating he wants fellow Irish star Saoirse Ronan in lead as Holly.

"Saoirse Ronan would be the dream cast for Holly."

He went on to state that he would love for the movie to be filmed in Ireland with all Irish actors. Ronan is no stranger to the limelight of teenage book-to-film adaptions like The Host and going on to star in Peter Jacksons The Lovley Bones. Ronan is also the front runner to play Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedons The Avengers: Age of Ultron....but thats just a rumor at this point.

The film is being penned by  Michael Goldenberg and produced by Robert De Niro.
