From e-screen to big screen

Otherwise titled: if my book was ever made into a movie…

Following on from Lexxie and Sami’s posts, I’ve had loads of fun trying to determine who would play the lead roles in Dinner at Eight.

(And yeah, I had to choose Dinner. It’s just released, and I’m still totally stoked about that.)

When it came down to the crunch, there were really on two contenders.

For the role of Jared Thurston, I had no option but to choose…

Quite apart from the undeniable fact that Channing Tatum is the hottest male on two legs, anyone who has seen the movie, The Vow, will understand why he’d be the perfect choice to play Jared.

Hmm, I wonder how he’d sound with an Australian accent.

And who would his leading lady be? This one was also a no brainer, by mere virtue of the fact that the actress is a dead ringer for Ava:

Yep, Mila Kunis would be the ideal match for Channing:

So, can you imagine Channing and Mila playing out this little scene?

————–

“Look at me.” His warm breath washed over her cheek.

Was that apprehension shooting the goose bumps down her arms—or something else altogether?

He tugged gently on her hair, tipping her head back. “Open your eyes so you can see my face, understand my intent.”

Helpless to resist, she did and found him staring at her. His face was close enough to jerk her heart into a jagged beat.

His gaze trapped hers, his eyes filled with tenderness. “You’re safe with me,” he promised. “Always.”

Ah, it’s nice to daydream.

I’ll see you at the movies.

If My Book Was A Movie…

1 Comment

I thought this week it would be fun for the Divas to pick any one of their books and cast it for a new Hollywood blockbuster. (Can you imagine the casting couch!!) We get to say who we’d like to star in the movie, and then YOU GUYS get to say who YOU’D cast.

What do you think? (Yes, this has been inspired by the Oscars. Yes, I saw Neil Patrick Harris in his tighty whities. Hee hee hee)

Okay, I’m going to kick the week off with MY movie (and I reckon most of you will be surprised with the book I’ve picked). Ready?

Dark Destiny (aka Death, the Vamp and his Brother)

The tagline…

When it comes down to love or duty, pick a side—and pray your heart survives. 

The synopsis…

Death exists for one purpose and one purpose only: to sever the life-threads of the living. She does her job with pride and an unwavering commitment. Nothing ruffles her. Until she encounters Patrick Watkins.

The Australian lifeguard pushes all her buttons—and makes her tailbone itch like crazy. And when her tailbone itches, it means trouble is brewing. Big trouble.

As far as Patrick’s concerned, everything Death tells him is a load of bull. But what if she’s right? How is he expected to save mankind from the worst fate of all—the Apocalypse? Especially when all he can think about is how quickly he’s falling in love with the most feared Horseman of them all…

The poster…

The cast…

Patrick

chris-hemsworth-4Chris Hemsworth. For two reasons. One, he’s a bloody hot Aussie who can do simmering rage and relaxed humour (Patrick through and through) and two…err…see reason one. *grin*

Ven

Ven is Patrick’s OLDER brother, but because he was turned to a vampire quite a few years ago, he now looks like Patrick’s younger brother…and it would make sense to cast Chris Hemsworth’s younger brother as his older (albeit immortal…ish) one. See? Sound logic?

Death (aka Fred)

Death, the Grim Reaper, the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse…call her what you will, but she tends to call herself Fred. And the only person I can see playing her with the right level of devilish fun and yet menacing danger is Scarlett Johansson (with pitch black hair).e3c687f15d84498ecd73514d208beb86

Pestilence

Gotta be Joseph Gordon-Levitt. In sleazy, whiney mode. Perfect.

Now… it’s your turn. Who would you cast in Dark Destiny (or, what other book of mine would you make into a movie and who would you cast?) Go…
