Q: What book would you love to see made into a movie or television show and do you have actors/actresses in mind to play the main characters?
I think I’m one of the rare ones that doesn’t complain about books made into movies. Why? Because you should never judge a book by its movie. I like them as two different forms of entertainment. In some cases, I didn’t particularly care for the book, but liked its movie version--or vice versa. With that said, some books I’d really like to see made into a movie or television show would be The Iron Fey series or the Vampire Academy series (which is optioned for film, but not picked up yet by a studio to begin filming or casting--come on, already!). I think either one would both work exceptionally well as movies or television… sometimes long-running television series seem to work out better though in my opinion, depending on the cast, channel, and timeslot.
As for the other part of the question, I couldn’t even begin to start on who I’d cast personally. I do have some I like, but generally people have their preferences and I think that’s why many people get so picky about movies/television when it comes to their favorite books going onto the screen in the end. I don’t. I love seeing them in action, but I also understand that it’s just a different form of entertainment. If I don’t like the movie or something, then I won’t watch it again--but it won’t affect my opinion of the book or change my love for the characters. :)
I think Victoria Justice would make a good Rose Hathaway for Vampire Academy appearance and age wise. And I think Tim Burton would make a great director for The Iron Fey series. He would do wonders on the world building and the characters. Just some ideas tossed out there! :P
Happy Friday and happy reading!
