Wanted… the Movie?
I’ve had more than a few people tell me they can see Wanted being made into a movie (with Ice Princess sure to follow). Who am I to argue? I think it would be an awesome movie. Granted there may be a little confusion over the title, given the recent movie of the same name staring Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. But hey, that’s negotiable! If you happen to know any screenwriters or have any contacts in Hollywood, send ’em my way!
In the meantime there are some very important questions I need help with… just what actors / actresses would play the characters in Wanted? My wife suggested Anne Hathaway for Jessie. I’ve got a massive amount of respect for Anne Hathaway’s talent and skill and I’m sure she could pull it off. I’ll admit, I’d be more than a little star struck to meet her too. I’ve admired her ever since she got away from the goofy early Disney movies.
As for Carl, my wife’s vote is for Hugh Jackman. I like him – a lot – but I’m not sure he fits the image. He might, if he tapped into a little bit of the hostility for authority he displayed while playing Wolverine. Bruce Willis, on the other hand, might be a perfect fit for Carl, though he’d need some hair.
Tanya and Dustin…I’m at a loss for these guys. And of course the question remains as to whether or not our picks for Carl and Jessie are optimal or not. Sure, this is just a case of mental masturbation but hey, if you’ve read this far into it, you’re asking yourself the same questions!
Or, if you haven’t read the book yet, hop on over to Amazon and pick it up – it’s free and easy to find since it’s #1 on the Amazon list for science fiction / adventure free Kindle books!
