Has anyone heard of the upcoming movie The Memory of Shadows. There are rumors that the regular characters from the TV show are being pushed by the studios to be played by A-list actors... In other words, the next time you see Sheridan & Delenn, they might be played by Tom Cruise and Juila Roberts, or such.
the fans will go blalistic. i'm not sure about myself. it would be good to see the original actors get a big break in stardom. but i suppose they are the best to play back their characters cause they know those characters well. ( and so do we ). but if some good A-list actors played, i wouldn't mind. just don't get those like "oh i don't know anything about B5 or scifi, i was just paid to star in it" kind of actors.

Just imagine Kate Winslet or Cameron Diaz as Delenn and you won't be quite so fast to accept the idea
Personally I don't understand why studios don't use the original actor/actress for the TV series when they do a big screen adaptation. If they do then they'd have the full support of existing fans, which would be a lot more then the number of fans they'd gain by using A-list actor/actress.
In the end, however, the deal could be put together, and it did not look as if that was going to change at any point in the foreseeable future. So the option has reverted, and to all intents and purposes, the project has dead ended. Nor do I think this particular incarnation will arise again at any point in the future, though prognostication has always been a tricky art, especially if you have to do it without the benefit of hindsight.
