I'll take it.

That could be cool.

We'll see but it could be cool.

SO she would be playing The Lady, and Soulcatcher, too. Well, be interesting to see how it turns out.

Could be good. Could also be…. not good. I will keep an eye out for it!

Probably better a TV series than a 2 hour, one-shot, movie. I shudder what they might have done if they tried to use that series for one movie script.

Okay so we got both the Lady and Soulcatcher parts filled.

Just need the following:

The Black Company:

Croaker -

The Captain –

Silent –

Goblin –

One Eye –

Tom Tom – short due to him dying in the first book

Raven -

Darling –

The Taken:

The Lady – Eliza Dushku

Soulcatcher, female – the Lady's sister. She and the Limper are implacable enemies. In an extreme case of sibling rivalry, she also schemes to overthrow the Lady. – Eliza Dushku

Shapeshifter, male – the first of the Ten to be Taken. As the name implies, he can assume the appearance of other people (and animals), the better to bring about their downfall. He is Soulcatcher's closest ally among the Taken and hates the Limper even more than she does. He is shown to be fond of infiltrating enemy lines and weakening them from within.

The Limper, male – feverishly homicidal and totally lacking in finesse

Would need some of the Rebels as well:

Raker, male – the rebel equivalent of the Limper, sharing many of his less desirable qualities.

Whisper, female – a military genius, as well as the strongest wizard in the Circle. Later taken by the Lady to replace the Limper after his treachery.

Harden, male

Feather, female

Journey, male

The Howler, male – a small, dirty bundle of rags who howls at random intervals

Stormbringer, female – able to conjure storms and cause geological events

Bonegnasher, male – eight feet tall, extremely strong and grotesquely muscled

The Hanged Man, male – also called Crooked Neck because his neck is stuck in a crooked manner and swollen

Moonbiter, unknown gender

Nightcrawler, unknown gender

The Faceless Man, male

So which actors/actresses?
