This is for Dewey's Read-a-Thon
Mini-challenge from The Lost Entwife (I love that name!)
I am very excited about The Host becoming a major motion picture. I thought it would be fun to cast the movie myself. Some may agree with my choices and some will totally think I'm crazy. I recently spoke of about this book on Tuesday and as you can tell, it is definitely one of my favorites!
Stephanie Meyer is such a good writer, so inventive and creative. Her inspiration for the Twilight Series has been known to be Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte', Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and of course Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte'. To tell you the truth, as you may have already known, I have not read The Twilight Saga. Sad but true.
Stephanie will be working with Nick Wechsler ( Reservation Road, Time Travelers Wife, North Country ) and to have Andrew Niccole ( Lord of War, The Terminal, The Truman Show and Gattaca ) writing the story line... sounds like a winner to me. Gattaca is a great example of a sci-fi thriller on the big screen that I want to see~ only better ~ for The Host!
So, CHEER'S to the stay-at-home mother of three that brought us Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and The Host. You are truly an inspiration for us mothers.
So without further adieu... Hope you enjoy my version for the cast of The Host...
Camilla Belle as Melanie Stryder
Jensen Ackles as Jared Howe
Josh Evans as Ian O'Shea
Hugh Laurie as Doc
Eva Longoria Parker as The Seeker
So there it is, fans of The Host. This is my dream cast, all in all, whoever ends up playing the roles of these characters, I'm sure will be great! This was just a fun project for me. Let me know what you think and how you see the movie being casted.
