Tons of Elektra Info!

Here are a few interesting tidbits of info that we picked up on our visit to the set of Elektra in Vancouver:

– Colin Farrell has offered to do a cameo as Bullseye if the part was good. They talked about bring Ben Affleck back for a cameo, but it looks like there will only be a passing reference to him in the film.

– They are currently in talks with Evanesence to do a song specifically written for Elektra.

– The film is primarily based on Frank Miller’s Elektra stories and the Elektra and Wolverine story.

– Elektra goes through several costume changes in the film, one of which is reminiscent of the traditional red outfit. However, due to the fact that it would be hard to realize on screen (much less fight in), it is slightly different than the comic version. The costume has long pants, but the same top and head cover as in the comics. You can check out the first picture of the costume at USA Today.

Also, here’s a brief cast listing matching the actors to the characters:

Jennifer Garner as Elektra Natchios

Goran Visnjic as Mark Miller

Kirsten Prout as Abby Miller

Terence Stamp as Stick

Colin Cunningham as McCabe

Jason Isaacs as DeMarco

Hiro Kanagawa as Kinkou

Natassia Malthe as Typhoid Mary

In the process of researching for this story, I found the following post at a Jennifer Garner forum. Most of the information here seems to be correct though there are a couple of errors. Major spoilers follow, so proceed at your own risk. Enjoy!
