INKHEART will follow a girl whose father has the power to bring characters from books to life by reading aloud. When a villainous ruler and his band of rogues from a children's fable kidnap the man, his daughter and her friends, both real and imaginary, must rescue him.

Bettany will play the role of Dustfinger, a fire-eating performer. Fraser's playing the father and the young girl has not been cast as of yet.

"The Pagemaster".... Oh comeon... now we're really reaching for reasons to piss on new movies. I think this sounds interesting.... I would be interested to hear if the "friends" are well known characters from childrens literature or original... either way could be very cool in it's own right.

"Pagemaster"? No, actually, first thing I thought when I read the description was "Zathura"......only good.

I agree with #2. I think this could be really good.

Give me a break. He brings characters from books to life. Honestly if any guy really had that power he'd have a subscription to playboy, hustler, maxium, FHM, etc..

Hey Jokers, who says he doesn't? It just won't be seen on screen, as it's a children/family movie. And wanker, considering your choice of words, while you act juvenile, you probably are of an age that won't be interested in this film anyway. Come on, it's a family movie! If you don't want to, don't go see it. I'm sure my neice would be thrilled to go.

Yeah, Wanker, your acting like one.
