From Audiobook to Film - Brendan Fraser & Inkheart

I find it very fitting that Brendan Fraser stars in the soon-to-be-released film of Cornelia Funke's Inkheart (more here). He did the wonderful audiobook of Inkspell, the sequel to Inkheart - here's an audio clip.

Fraser’s audiobook narration of Funke’s Dragon Rider is also a personal favorite of mine – listen to a clip.

Fascinating to learn that Funke wrote Inkheart’s character Mortimer Folchart with Fraser in mind. Here’s a photo of the two together.
Too bad Lynn Redgrave isn't in the Inkheart movie - she did the outstanding Inkheart audiobook - listen here.

I just finished listening to Inkspell, and WOW! I can't wait to see Inkheart... I was excited before, because I very much enjoyed listening to that audiobook, but now... *waits impatiently*

Okay, will have to see if the library has Dragon Rider.

Brendan had better schedule time to record the final book in the Inkheart trilogy. (:
