WIP: The Movie blogfest, hosted by Kyra Lennon and Rachel Schieffelbein. Thanks for coming up with this fabulous idea for a fest, ladies!
I've been so excited about this because, come on, who doesn't imagine their literary babies up on the big screen one day? And do you know what's great for keeping track of visual collections? Pinterest. Sooo, I give you my WIP in board form:
In case you don't recognize that lovely man in a suit, it's Chris Pine, playing the male lead, Hayden King, in a contemporary office romance that is chick-litty in temperament. Pine came immediately to mind as the confident, smart, sorta cocky, but ultimately irresistible associate. Anna Kendrick plays the sarcastic and cynical yet playful female lead, Lyssa Bates. So far I've only cast one side character, and that's BBT's Kaley Cuoco as Lyssa's bitch sister.
You also get a peek at the urban setting with the beautiful Chicago skyline and a taste of the soundtrack. This story is set in modern day, but like I say in one of the captions---you can take the girl out of the 80's but you just can't take the 80's out of the girl. Hall & Oates capture the peppy beat of the story, Depeche Mode makes an excellent backdrop for a farmhouse bed scene that's a particular favorite of mine, and Addicted to Love would be a good alternate title for the story as our girl becomes slightly addicted to battery-operated love when she's disenchanted with real men. At the moment, I'm calling the story Vibrizzio.
The marvelous and extremely helpful Jennifer Lane has been my crit partner on this story, so I'm extremely curious to know---how did I do with the casting, Jen? Is this how you pictured them?
