We have just been informed that the release date for Eragon is definitely going to be December 15, 2006 or "Holiday 2006" instead of Summer 2006. This gives Fox enough time to make a great lead-in campaign for the movie and tease us a lot with great glimpses at the movie.

[20.07.2005] Bei Shur'tugal gibt es ein offizielles Bild von Ed Speleers, der die Rolle des Eragon spielen wird !!! Und bei Moviehole gibt es folgende Meldung...
Summer Bay's starting to produce some talented little puppies it seems. Hot on the heels of Isla Fisher, another ex-"Home and Away" star that's making a splash in Hollywood, comes news that her former co-star Chris Egan has been snapped up by the town of tinsel.
Egan, who has just completed a role in "Decameron : Angels and Virgins" opposite Hayden Christensen and Mischa Barton, has signed a three-picture deal with Twentieth Century Fox, says The Herald Sun.
He's put pen to paper to sign onto the "Eragon" trilogy, from writer Christopher Paolini, starring opposite John Malkovich.
"It is like Lord of the Rings but it is about dragons," said Egan, who played Nick Smith on "Home and Away".
Production on Eragon will begin in Budapest, Hungary, next month.
Egan left "Home and Away" in 2003 and virtually went straight to Hollywood where he bunked in with fellow Australian actor Justin Melvey for six months.
Alf's apparently in talks to take over for Jackie Chan in the next "Rush Hour" too.

[16.07.2005] Bei CS! gibt es folgende offizielle Pressemeldung...
Fox 2000 Pictures begins production August 1st in Budapest, Hungary, on the epic fantasy adventure Eragon based on the best-selling novel by Christopher Paolini. Twentieth Century Fox releases Eragon June 16th, 2006.
Following a worldwide casting search, which rivaled the hunt for a cinematic "Harry Potter," and included hundreds of auditions and dozens of screen tests, newcomer Ed Speleers has landed the title role - a young man whose destiny is revealed when he learns he is part of an elite troop of Dragon Riders. Eragon is swept into a world of magic and power, discovering that he can save - or destroy - an Empire.
Deals are being finalized for Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons, and Oscar® nominees John Malkovich and Djimon Hounsou to take on key roles. Casting on the female lead, 'Arya', will soon be announced.
Eragon is directed by Stefen Fangmeier, one of the industry's true visual effects genius'. During his tenure at the renowned effects house Industrial Light & Magic, Fangmeier supervised films such as Saving Private Ryan, Twister, The Perfect Storm and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. He is a three-time BAFTA Award winner, and has been Oscar-nominated four times.
George Lucas, for whom Fangmeier worked for 15 years at ILM, commented: "Stefen invested a good part of his life into creating state-of-the-art visual effects at ILM. His effects work always supported story and characters, and that will serve him very well on 'Eragon'." [...]
Eragon is produced by John Davis (I, Robot) and Wyck Godfrey.

[07.07.2005] Laut Shur'tugal wurde der Hauptdarsteller bereits gefunden...
[...] About a week ago, we received an email from a fan who claimed to attend school with 17-year-old Edward Speleers, reporting that he had been signed on as Eragon for the upcoming Eragon movie. The same claims surfaced on IMDB a few days later. Today, Daily Mail (a British newspaper) reported that Ed Speleers. Shurtugal reader Johnathan was nice enough to type up the article for us:
It's the kind of break that dreams are made of. A 17-year-old public schoolboy, with no acting experience beyond amateur school productions, has been plucked from obscurity to win the most coveted role of the year. Along the way, handsome Edward Speleers (left (picture)), a border at £15,000-per-year Eastbourne College beat 180,000 hopefuls to land the title role in Eragon, a multi-million pound screen version of Christopher Paolini's fantasy novel, which knocked Harry Potter off the top of the best-seller list two years ago. "You could say that Ed is Eastbourne College's leading man. He's just got this amazing charisma,' his drama teacher Tim Marriot tells me. 'Recently he's played Richard the 3rd and Hamlet in school plays.' Ed, who already has a large female following at the school, is the only child of Essex-based financial consultant John Speleers, 62, who is divorced from Ed's mother, who now lives in Spain.
The article also mentions Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich as also being signed on to the cast of Eragon. Thanks to a IMDB user who claims to go to school with Edward, we have a picture. Please keep in mind that both the news and the picture may be false information and should be treated as a rumor until we have official confirmation or a dismissal of the rumor! [...]

[...] Eragon, a fantasy-adventure based on Christopher Paolini's bestselling book will start filming in late July in the Mafilm Studio in Fót, Hungary (near Budapest). The movie has an estimated budget of $100 million, and it is set for a June 2006 release.
The Mafilm Fót Studios is the same place where Dinotopia: The Series, A Christmas Carol: The Musical and this year's Copying Beethoven was shot.
Dragon-themed movies are often shot in Central/East Europe: Dungeons & Dragons was shot in the Czech Republic, Dragonheart and it's sequel Dragonheart: A New Beginning was made in Slovakia, while Dragon Storm (a 2004 tv-movie) was shot in Bulgaria.
Fót Film Studios is not the only location for this film. This is the other place where the film will be shot, Ság Hill, which is located at the West side of Hungary. There will be a village, a waterfall etc.
Additional pictures can be found here. [...]

[18.06.2005] Blickpunkt:Film meldet...
Noch in diesem Sommer will Fox den Auftakt zum potenziellen Fantasy-Franchise "Eragon" realisieren. [...]
Fox hatte die Rechte Ende 2003 erworben, in der Hoffnung, ein Franchise im Stil von "Harry Potter" aufzubauen. Stefen Fangmeier, bisher als Spezialeffekte-Mann bei ILM erfolgreich (z.B. bei "Lemony Snicket - Rätselhafte Ereignisse" oder "Der Sturm"), soll sein Regiedebüt geben. "Jurassic Park III"-Autor Peter Buchman schrieb das Drehbuch. Gerade ist mit Ingenious Film Partners auch ein Fonds an Bord des Projekts gekommen, der die Finanzierung sichert. Der von der Londoner Ingenious Media eröffnete Fonds beteiligt sich auch an Fox' "X-Men 3", "Garfield 2" und "Sunshine".
Geplant ist, im Juli in Ungarn zu drehen. Als US-Kinostarttermin wird der 16. Juni 2006 angepeilt. Patrick Tatopoulos soll für das Design des Drachen zuständig sein.

[25.05.2005] Wie IMDb meldet, zeichnet Patrick Tatopoulos (u.a. "Underworld", "I, Robot", "Silent Hill") für das Design der Drachen verantwortlich, während Karen M. Murphy (u.a. "Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen", "Die Liga der aussergewöhnlichen Gentlemen") die visuellen Effekte überwachen wird...

[03.03.2005] Production Weekly meldet...
Stefen Fangmeier, will make his directing debut this summer on "Eragon" [...]
Fangmeier, who most recently supervised the visual effects on "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," will shoot the feature on location in Europe in July.

[03.02.2005] Bei Random House gibt es zwischenzeitlich eine Inhaltsangabe zu "Eldest"... Und Christopher Paolini schreibt im Offiziellen Newsletter (nachzulesen bei:
[...] The movie adaptation of Eragon by Fox 2000 continues apace. I will soon have exciting news to share on this. [...]

[22.01.2005] Zwischenzeitlich wurde auch das US-Cover von "Eldest", dem 2. Band der Trilogie, veröffentlicht !!!

[19.10.2004] sprach am 23. September erneut mit Christopher Paolini, u.a. wurde auch die Verfilmung angesprochen...
[...] I believe the screenplay for the movie has been finished up at this point, and Fox 2000 is now moving ahead with looking for a director and getting everything put together for pre-production. So that’s really where it sits right now, and it’s moving forward very quickly, as these things go in Hollywood. [...]

[07.09.2004] Der cbj Verlag veröffentlicht Christopher Paolini's "Eragon - Das Vermächtnis der Drachenreiter" in deutscher Sprache... Unser Lesetipp !!!

[28.07.2004] Bei gibt es ein Comic-Con-Interview mit Christopher Paolini mit einigen Hinweisen auf die Verfilmung...
Kari: [...] You obviously know more than us about the movie... anything you can tell us?
Chris: I’m actually trying to decide how much I can say. Parts of this are confidential obviously. I believe that I can say that the screenplay has been approved. And that means that then they’ll be choosing a director. They’ll be casting the movie. They’ll be doing all the preproduction work. There’s also been some licensing deals for Eragon, which means that the studio has a lot of motivation to make the movie because they’re being paid money by other companies. So there’s been some licensing deals which give the studio incentives ton move ahead with it. So I have not seen the final screenplay myself. I’m scared to see it. I’m just as much of a fan of the book as everyone else is. I can say that there has been some changes made in the screenplay- mainly shortening. For example, no, actually I have no comment- no further comment. *laughs* [...]
Kari: Are you looking forward to the casting of Eragon, the movie?
Chris: Oh yes, oh yes. I think that Guy Pierce should be Durza. I think he’d be perfect for Durza.
Kari: Will you have a hand in choosing the actors/actresses?
Chris: I don’t know how much of a hand I’ll have in choosing the actors. Whether or not they’re willing to listen to me, I’m still going to squawk. [...]
Kari: So... why do you want to be beheaded?
Chris: Well, okay I don’t want to be taken too seriously and if you’re going to have a cameo in the movie it should be one that people remember. And if I get beheaded then, what I hope is that I’m going to be in all three movies and I’m going to be beheaded in all three movies. But first I have to kill an Urgal then be beheaded. I can’t just come on and be beheaded because that’s kind of wimpy. Because if I die in this world, which I will eventually, I can have it on my tombstone: He died in Farthen Dur. That’d be fun.

[20.02.2004] CS! meldet...
Peter Buchman will adapt Eragon, the Christopher Paolini-penned best-selling fantasy novel about a youth whose discovery of a dragon egg leads him to become a knight and battle an evil king.
Buchman has also written the script for Jurassic Park III and is writing The War Magician as a directing vehicle for "Master and Commander" helmer Peter Weir.
"Eragon," which Fox 2000 bought late last year, has become a publishing phenom, partly because its author is only 17.
The medieval-set tale revolves around a farm boy who learns he is the last of a breed of benevolent Dragon Riders, whose magical powers derived from their bond with the beasts.

[20.01.2004] USA Today meldet...
[...] Fox 2000, a division of 20th Century Fox, snagged the hottest fantasy title of the moment, one in a planned Inheritance trilogy by 20-year-old wonder scribe Christopher Paolini.
"We read the book very early in manuscript form when the family was trying to self-publish it," says Elizabeth Gabler, president of Fox 2000. "We found the core relationship between a boy and a dragon who share a telepathic connection a strong concept for a movie."
She realizes that Eragon echoes Tolkien in its pseudo-Celtic language and imagined universe of dwarfs and elves. The novel also owes a debt to Luke Skywalker as the teen hero trains to be a Dragon Rider while avenging his uncle's murder. However, "We can deliver something fresh to the eye." Expected delivery: 2005. [...]
