WiP The Movie


Thanks Kyra and Rachel for hosting this fun bloghop!

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to post a photo of the actors or actresses you would like to play the characters in your WiP if it were to be made into a movie. It can be just one character, or the entire cast!

Secondly, soundtrack your movie! Head over to YouTube, and post a song that best describes one of your characters, or your story as a whole. Again, you can pick one song, or several, it's entirely up to you!


My Protector: The Calling

Pitch: When Eri becomes the first girl to receive the Calling, an internal link to the man-eating beasts plaguing her planet, she must use her inherited skills to stop the creatures from destroying everything she loves.



Eri meets Finnley after they're both drawn out into the darkness by the Calling, ultimately forging a friendship once their secret bond is revealed. Grayson is the Protector who saved Eri from the claws of a beast when she was 14 and is later talked into helping her train thanks to Finnley's jabber mouth and undying loyalty to Eri.


Eri
(Chloe Grace Moretz)



All Around Me by Flyleaf





Finnley
(Taylor Kitsch)


Timshel by Mumford & Sons




Grayson
(Paul Walker)



Crawl by Kings of Leon




I know, I'd need a time machine for these actors to play Finnley and Grayson, but the world inside my head does not comprehend such trivial limitations.

Who is running around in your head?

Now it's your turn to hop around and find out what characters are living inside other people's imaginations :)

  1. Chloe Moretz is wonderful! Great choices for all of your cast, and your soundtrack. I'd never heard Eri's song before, but I love it!

    1. Chloe Moretz was awesome in Kick-Ass, she'd be great kicking ass as a Protector :)

  2. Haha, I do that too, cast younger versions of actors in my books. Psh, the laws of time and space do not apply to writers.

  9. Oh my oh my oh my!!!!

    Are you sure you don't want to change Jen's name? I think it would be a big hit if she was named Cassie.

    And I love the Flyleaf song. On my playlist too!

  13. I love when people put a picture to the name! Is it crazy that I've never "cast" anyone in any of my books? It's just so daunting!

    1. I had a hard time picking Eri and Finnley cause they have always just been actions and emotions in my head. Now I have a face I can sort of put with them. Paul Walker has always been Grayson :)

  14. PAUL WALKER! <3
    Is it weird that my brother kinda looks like him and I still think Paul is hot?

    1. That's so funny! My husband throws that one out to me once in a while and it almost ruins Paul Walker for just a second :) My brother looks more like Matt Damon meets Josh Hartnett, and once I figured that out I can't look at either of them in a 'hot' way, I still think they're handsome though :) Wow, did I just call my brother handsome?

  15. Oh, Paul Walker is GREAT! I wanted you to know that I heard through the grapevine how awesome your story was. Now I can't remember who told me (Cassie? Emily?)

    1. Wow! Thanks so much! That's so flattering :)

  16. Awesome pitch! And I have always been a huge Flyleaf and Kings of Leon fan. You can't go wrong with Chloe and Taylor! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Drool over Paul Walker! :) Can you believe I don't know the other two? How bad is that! :) lol I'd love to see some of your man-eating beasts though :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great pitch! You have awesome taste in music. I love all of these songs. And great character choices. I'm in love with Taylor Kitsch. I'm so happy he's in a new movie because he is everywhere!

    1. Yeah, he's super yummy :) John Carter looks entertaining, but I'm really looking forward to Battleship! Short haired Taylor Kitsch is really hot too! I guess he even has a Scorsese film coming up, he's on fire :)

  20. I've always loved Paul Walker! There's an innocence about him and a vulnerability few actors possess! Good choice! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I <33333 Paul Walker. Except in the movie Running Scared. He terrified me. But totally redeemed himself with Eight Below :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm so crushing on Taylor Kitsch right now - considered him over and over again for my MC but he just didn't work. He's so hot. Great cast!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh Hope I loved who you picked for Erin!! I also love her song. ;0) I can't wait to learn more about Grayson. He is on my schedule for tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Paul Walker has some beautiful eyes! I don't exactly know what he's been in, but he looks like a Finnley.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I almost resorted to the time machine for a few actors, but in the end didn't have to. I feel old because I don't know hardly any of these celebrities on all the blogs.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ah, I love Chloe! She's such a great actress! Your pitch is great!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my goodness... pictures and songs for everyone! You go girl! I love it. Love them all!

  28. I love all three of these peeps. I just saw Taylor in John Carter and all I could think was Envogue's "what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man." ;) I would see your movie in a heartbeat.

  29. Taylor Kitsch with long or short hair?
