Over the next little while (honestly not sure how long it will be), I will be posting guest blogs by authors from the Class of 2k11! I am so honored to be doing this!
Each author will be talking about who they would cast in the movie version of the book.
And here's the summary of her book from her website:
Someone’s been a very bad zombie.
And who would Carrie cast in her movie?
While we’re at it, I’d really love to own a unicorn.
But if the Buffy thing isn’t possible (PLEASE, JOSS WHEDON!!! WITH UNICORNS ON TOP!), I’ve got backups. Here’s who I’d cast in my dream production of BTIB:
Kate Grable is the kind of girl I’d like to hang out with. But then again, I’m a big fan of random bits of inappropriate medical trivia, self-deprecating humor, and atrocious zombie theories. I wanted an actress who could pull off her humor but still be accessible, and zombie slaying experience was a big plus. That’s why I think Abigail Breslin of Zombieland would be a perfect choice.
And then there’s love interest Aaron Kingsman. Aaron’s a jock, but he’s not very good at it. He’s led the Bayview Bantams to a no-scoring season when the book starts. But we love him anyway because he’s adorbs, and smart, and funny, and kind, and did we mention adorbs? So for this one, I drew on my copious Disney Channel watching experience and went for Gregg Sulkin of Wizards of Waverly Place fame. Because let’s face it, Alex Pettyfer cannot play EVERY hot guy in a YA adaption.
Yes, that’s Justin Bieber in a chicken suit. I’d go to a movie to see that. Wouldn’t you?
