What book that hasn’t been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?
Well, that’s timely considering my other post today features the One for the Money trailer which I’m both excited and wary about. Obviously given that I’m doing a read of the Kate Daniel series at the moment I wouldn’t mind seeing them made into a movie but in all honesty I’m not sure a movie could ever do justice to the world. I’ve got people who are in my head when I read the books (see my series page for details by clicking here) but whether they would do justice to the books or not I’m not sure. Eric Dane for me is Curran. He has the right degree of cheekiness and toughness but there’s a scene in Valentines Day where the vulnerability on his face is breath-taking.
And as much as I would LOVE the Lauren Dane’s Brown Siblings series to be made – well, in order to be true to the books they would never get through the classification system and would end up being qualified as porn. Porn that is beautiful, meaningful and extraordinarily well written but still not something I would be comfortable going with my Mum to see in a crowded cinema.
So I’m going to say the book that I’ve just finished reading – Ill Wind. The premise of the story isn’t like anything out there at the moment in movie land. Weather wardens control the weather, there are djinn (think genies) and well can you imagine the cinematic quality of weather scenes – think Twister but only bigger.
Who’s in my head for the casting well I’m not sure why by Zooey Deschanel for Joanne and for David no one other than Ewan McGregor.
Have a great FF everyone, looking forward to reading your posts.
