@Damsel: thanks for the link! But Ben hasn't been confirmed for the project. His name isn't listed in any of the 5 articles on IMDb. Proof: Ben's profile! We need something official for confirmation. It will be a tight squeeze since this project films in Greenwich, CT next month. Ben is filming "The Words" right now in Montreal....

I think Ben is casted in the new film because for one, it is with the same production company Ben's new agency in the USA hooked him up with. Plus Ben's role in The Words is supporting, and we do not know how much screentime his character might have. The film will also be shooting in New York and that is close to CT. Also GDTS wont be shooting until mid or late July. I think Ben is in the film.

Update: Benbarnesonline.net just posted a tweet from one of the actresses in "Gently Down the Stream" which is now "Te Wedding" and she posted that Ben Barnes is indeed playing her son in the film and just met him and can not wait for them to film their scenes.

So yes i guess this is proof enough. ;) :D

Ben Barnes has done a great job in both PC and VDT, but in VDT, he really improved. He seemed much more relaxed, and was indeed Caspian.

Caspian's character in the VDT film is much what he is in the book. He has grown up since PC, but still has struggles. In the film, many people thought it was completely boneheaded of him to sleep on the Magician's Island with the crew, and having Drinian let him. In the book though, he and the kids decide to explore one of the Lone Islands themselves, and get captured. Caspian in the film is not perfect, nor is he in the books. He is learning to be a better king, and has become from his mistakes.

It also appears that Barnes has been negotiating with Warner Bros. to be cast in a fantasy film currently entitled "Seventh Son", based off a book series by Joseph Delaney for young adults. Nothing is on IMDb yet with Ben, but two other well known stars, Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore, are currently cast, so we'll just have to wait and see. If so, this will be his third project within a month! http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118039092

I just saw these pics today and I thought you'd all want to see them.
(sorry...too big to put in the post, so here's the link :D )

Question(s): 1.Would someone be willing to put a brief description of The Words in a post here? 2.Is Barnes playing a soldier?

weird...B-)

Thank you for posting these pictures AslansChild! And wow I hope Ben gets into another fantasy film too! That would be great!

I really love Ben's pictures, he's so handsome :ymblushing: ;;) He looks just like he did in Hyrise and The History Boys. Every look looks good on him I think.

Has anyone seen him in a play? I think that would be awesome! What was he like? Was he any good? Do you like him better as a film or stage actor?

(sorry, far to many questions :ymblushing: )

Here's a good pic:

I didn't really like his whole appearance in VDT, but he looks better here, he seems...happier, younger... idk, maybe it's just me:

I think he was in History boys before PC but it was never on the stage because of his role in Narnia he had to back out. But I think that would have been good! :)
Also, I agree with you about the photo, he does look younger their, but maybe that was the idea in VDT- to make him look older (Despite the fact that it was only 3 years late ?!)

Awe those new pictures are so sweet and so romantic! ;;)

I'm beginning to wonder if Ben and that pretty blonde actress are the actual characters in the writers mind in the film. I could be wrong but but i am basing it on that.

^ I saw those about a week ago and that was my first impression in the pictures "He Drinks Pepsi!!!" :D

To be honest I think i'm mostly looking forward to seeing him in The Seventh Son. I've been reading the wiki pages of the stories and it's a children's chronicles. It sounds very good and I can't wait to see it. :)
