    I am ABSOLUTELY disgusted and disappointed by the farce they are turning Robinne’s novel into. They have taken Solene and turned her into, excuse my language…a basic bitch. This idea they have is EVERY cheesy Lifetime movie (and I love those movies btws) but worse. I will not spend a DIME on this movie if this is the direction they take it. No, just NO.

    I always go back to the YouTube video a fan created for this book. If you haven’t seen it, you need to-its amazing. It has everything the book needs to have-the love, the turmoil, and the heartache. While I feel like Anne Hathaway is a great actress, I think this casting would make it much more commercial and rom-com like vs. the deep impact that the characters go thru.

    I hate that they’re turning soléne to ‘Sophie’ and changing the location of where they met too! Coachella?? Wtf!! I saw soléne as Jessica Alba, gal gadot, eiza gonzalez, ana de amaras, what Mitchell or even Nina dobrev. Hayes I can’t quite think who he suits but unpopular opinion (and whether it’s based on him or not) I can’t see it as Harry styles! I picture someone like Rhys Matthew Bond or somebody else a bit more rugged and strikingly good looking!

    Yes the main character HAS to be someone more exotic than Hathaway.

  5. Aish says:

    Wholeheartedly agree – the fact that Hathaway could easily play a classic girl next door is part of the casting problem. Also, I have never imagined anyone except Hero Fiennes Tiffin as Hayes and I don’t think many would be able to top that.

    Although I will say, the guy in the Hating Game was not the first lead, who I was looking forward to, and he ended up giving a good performance.

    I’m late to the party, but Blake Lively would have been PERFECT! 😭😭😭

    There’s an entire list of French actresses that they could’ve chosen from to keep THE MAIN CHARACTER. They just announced Nicholas Galitzine as Hayes. So they stayed true to the male MAIN CHARACTER but not the female? That’s completely missing why Robinne Lee wrote this. I’ll still watch it, must admit, but it’s a tale as old as time, changing the book for the silver screen. Never–yet always–fails.

  8. Melissa Gonzalez says:

    Yes! Hero Fiennes Tiffin would have been a perfect cast!

    I know I am late to the party, but you said what I am feeling. I just finished the book and I can’t imagine Hayes calling her anything but Solene in his British accent. They seem to be “Americanizing” it and it’s gross. I also hate to say this as an American woman, but it seems to me Hayes needs someone a little more exotic and worldly to fall so hard for. I like Anne Hathaway, but not for this…misstep, not sure if I will hate-watch the film or not. I will let this story live in my own head for a while before deciding.
