The Silver Screen

I’ve been doing a lot of ruminating lately. I’ve often imagined what it would be like to have my books turned into movies. I’ve considered the different ways that could go down: 1. Total loss of control so that the books go the way of The Lawnmower Man and I have to hide my head in the ground. 2. Some control, so that I get to at least insist that Jack Thane not be turned into a Matrix character. 3. Total control – so that the movies are AWESOME!

It’s number three that I daydream about. I don’t often sleep well, so some nights, when I’m up alone, I surf the web for faces and actors that I would like portraying certain characters. Ben Barnes for Azrael. Paul Walker as Michael. Gabriel Aubry as Samael. Mmmmm…. I can see the movies playing out in my mind’s eye. There’s even music. For Death’s Angel? I hear the goth remix of Crush by Garbage. Especially during the love scene. For Hell Bent? I hear Forever by Live. It’s Jack on the bike, holding out his gloved hand – and Annabelle unsure as to whether she should take it. These images spin in my head, spurning me on, fueling my existence as much as does the blood in my veins.

I really do wonder whether what I see and hear in the MTV (the first kind) of my mind will ever make its way to a more public screen. If it does, I want Michael Fassbender, Rupert Penry Jones and Richard Armitage in there somewhere. Pretty please.

    I want to be Charlie or Victoria! I think they have the most exciting lives ever. Okay, and it’s about the men too.

    Awesome choices. I say keep on ruminating and if the opportunity ever arises, keep as much control as possible. I love Karen Marie Moning and I read somewhere that she would like to see her Fever series done on television instead of on the silver screen because she would have more input. How about a made for HBO Big Bad Wolf series with a time slot just after True Blood? AWESOME!!

    I see that you don’t have a Jack Thane yet. 😉 I think you’ll need a worldwide talent search, although it would be nice if he were really a Brit. I can’t think of any actor or character onscreen who sneaks in all my right places like Jack does. But it depends upon who is cast as his Bella as well, because I think the chemistry between the two of them is part of what makes Jack so irresistible. I so want to be Jack’s Bella!

    Interesting topic! Just the other day while I was at lunch, parked in front of The UPS Store… procrastinating because I didn’t want to get out of the car. I was listening to my favorite music artist, Enrique Iglesias. His song Ring My Bells was on and I was thinking that this song would be so awesome for The Game if it became a movie. Like for the ending credits or even during a Victor and Victoria love making scene. Of course, I would want to play Victoria…but that would be kind of hard because Im a brunette. IMO I think it would make an awesome movie!!!!

    Michael Fassbender is the best! He always looks so yummy! I started reading your Big Bad Wolf series and decided that I had to have every other book you’ve written. I’m reading Hell Bent right now and am loving it! Thanks for the wonderful stories that help me escape into different worlds.
