Who Should Play Ramona Quimby, Age 8?

Guess which rambunctious 8-year-old is coming to the big screen? That's right, Ramona Quimby! Based on the beloved series by Beverly Cleary, Fox 2000 has greenlit a film adaptation titled simply Ramona.

Elizabeth Allen (Aquamarine) has just signed on to direct, but no actors are attached to the project as of yet. There doesn't appear to be a definitely plot determined yet, either, so who knows which of Ramona's adventures will make it into the big-screen project.

Back when I was watching the "Ramona" TV show, I thought Sarah Polley made a perfect Ramona. Of course, Polley is all grown up and directing movies of her own these days, so who should play Ramona now?

Put your thinking caps on, Buzz readers: Who would make the best Ramona Quimby?

Fannings are both blonde and even though Dakota wore a wig in Hide and Seek, I don't think it would work. Tessa Allen, the girl from Enough, would be a good one. She's a bit older but they can always get kids to act younger and with someone a bit older then "8" then you can more likely get more out of them. I think Tessa would be a perfect match for it!

No Fannings, plzkthx. Dakota's cute, but her Littler Fanning is creepy. Did anyone catch her on SVU? Yikes. +1 for the unknown.

My youngest daughter. She's 6, but quirky and hilarious and embodies all things Ramona. My eldest could be Beezus (If she were younger, i'd say her)

This is an unfortunate idea. The Ramona books were wonderful - many years ago. They're still fantastic, but if the movie is updated to 2007, it'll suck! Purists (people over the age of 25) will be disappointed by an update, and the stories will lose their magic. This movie's only hope is to set the film during the time the stories were written - and to cast a total unknown.

Add my vote to someone unknown, although Abigail Breslin could be good, too. Just not a Fanning!
