Writer's Block: Next stop: Hollywood
Which book that you've read would make a great movie, and why? Who would you pick to play the main characters?
Catcher in the Rye, of course. Because it reads like a script, a marvelous one. It has been beggging for decades now to be made into a film. Holden Caulfield should be played by any 16-year-old newcomer who is as close as possible to the kind of talent Leonardo DiCaprio and Anton Yelchin had already displayed so plentifully at the same age. Among the several characters he meets on his journey, I would pick up Frances McDormand and Amy Adams to play the two nuns he meets on the train, although I suspect Miss Adams wouldn't be exactly happy about the typecasting.
