The Lightning Thief Movie

So I had no idea they were making a movie of The Lightning Thief. But apparently they are. Here's the cast list:

Pierce Brosnan as Chiron

Rosario Dawson as Persephone

Kevin McKidd as Poseidon

Uma Thurman as Medusa

Sean Bean as Zeus

Steve Coogan as Hades

Catherine Keene as Sally Jackson

Melina Kanakaredes as Athena

Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson

Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth Chase

Jake Abel as Luke

Chelan Simmons as Silena Beauregard

Erica Cerra as Hera

Brandon T. Jackson as Grover Underwood

Serinda Swan as Aphrodite

Stefanie von Pfetten as Demeter

This is Logan Lerman who is playing Percy Jacson. So, what do you think of the casting? I must say I like Steve Coogan as Hades!

Why did they cast a bunch of 20 - 30 year olds to play kids that are supposed to be around 10 or 11? Grover, Annabeth, Silena, and Percy are supposed to be kids, not adults. This already seems completely stupid. What are they going to do for the 5th movie when Percy's actor is like 50 years old with a broken hip?

The anonymaus dude is right, the casting os pretty damn bad. Annabeth is blonde, not brunette, and Hades should not have been cast with a dude that is a ppredominantly comdedic actor. And they are all way too old, the dudes playing Zeus and Poesidon just don't give off the right feel for those parts.

I completely agree! If they are going to make this movie they need to follow the book! You should always cast the characters the way the book describes them. If they dont like we have invented wigs! ect ect Maybe in the nexxt movie shell get her hair dyed since she is supposed to be strong
