Today is WIP The Movie Bloghop!!!

I'm so excited! This is going to be so much fun! Today's hop is hosted by Kyra Lennon at Write Here Write Now and Rachel at Writing on the Wall.

Have you ever fantasized about your book being turned into a movie? (If you say no, I might call you a liar.) It's fun to think about. So, we want you to make your movie.

Here are the rules:
Cast at least one character from your book, and post a picture of him or her on your blog.
Post at least one song that would be on the soundtrack.

I decided on my book Displaced Hearts. I always like to have a little background when I read about other people's work so a quick summary of the book:  

Liz Wagner's sure the world is ending when her ex, Zach, moves back to town, but when a shooting sends Liz's brother to the hospital and emotional turmoil renders Liz useless, Zach is the only thing that keeps her world from falling apart.

Hmm.. For Liz I would actually say, Shailene Woodley. With her brown hair and blonde highlights, lingering summer tan and hazel eyes with green specks she's a perfect Liz.
                                      


Zach. Hmm... After much searching the only guy that can come close enough to my vision of Zach is Jean Luc Bilodea:
Liz's best friend Sadie was based on a younger version of Aishwarya Rai Bachan, a Bollywood Actress. (I'm obsessed with her eyes):
And last is Josh, Liz's brother and a big part of the book. I'd say Alexander Ludwig in this picture.
Now the soundtrack. Since it's about a couple who are no longer together, but obviously both still have feelings for one another, even if a particular someone acts as if she can't stand him. lol. The best song for the soundtrack would be:

  1. Great job, Theresa! I am so impressed with everyone's book/movie summaries so far, and your character choices are great. Aishwarya Rai Bachan's eyes really are amazing, I'm a little jealous lol!

  7. I don't know any of those actors...*hangs head in shame* but they're exactly what I pictured when I read it! :)

    1. YAY! I was so excited to see what you thought, since you know the characters. And no need to hang your head in shame. Well Shailene Woodley was just in the George Clooney movie that was nominated for an Oscar so maybe you can hang your head slightly for that one. Ha!

      I heard the song and was like Zach and Lizzie! That's them. lol.

    1. When I saw you had a Zach (different spelling though which I must admit I love) in your WIP I was like Awesome!

      Me too! It's embarrassing when I glance over and see another driver looking at me like I'm crazy, but I can't help myself :)

    1. I have to see The Descendants. She's in the Secret Life of An American Teenager (and yes I admit I used to watch it) and I just feel like she has so much more in her than the show lets her do.

      And aww thanks :) I'm always open to beta readers :)

    1. Yup they're real. I thought they were fake too, but nope. Jean Luc was on the TV show Kyle XY- I think I might have been the only person that watched the show though. lol.
