The cast won't be up for a while, unfortunately. And I honestly don't expect Bertie (and Laura), reprising. Hopefully, the next time they'll reprise will be the 2019 movie. (I honestly expect it since it's the same creative team. Esepecially Lauren since she's married to the director)

Concerning the movie, I could see them getting hollywood celebrities to play the lead roles.

Philip Quast is a magnificent actor, but way too old for Miss Trunchball.

I am surprised thay Book of Mormon hasn't been announced for Australia as yet?

But, isn't Bertie a pretty big name in the UK, or at least is a rising star? Not only did he get some tiny parts in major TV shows in the past, but he also snag 2 major roles in 2 TV shows right after Matilda. By 2018 or 2019, he might be a big enough name to carry this movie. If not, hey: We have John Lloyd Young, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Nikki Blonsky, and soon Lilla Crawford becoming just Broadway stars (minus Nikki) to major/TV movie stars from making debuts in movie musicals, so why not Bertie?

I'm a little bit surprised at that too. Admittedly, Mormonism isn't a massive part of our culture. But the show seems to be gaining word of mouth in non-theatre circles because of the South Park Heritage.
