While writing my books, I often cast them in my head so that things run like a little movie when I read over it later. It’s a fun way to keep the characters straight in my head. However, because I took so long to write Shriek, my original dream cast is a bit too old. A lot can happen in five years, right? Charlie Hunnam was my ultimate Ridley, but even at 30-ish (when I started writing), he was too old to actually play the part.
When talking to a pre-reader, I got a few new ideas. Now, I’d like to put the question to all of you. Who would you love to see in your very own movie of Shriek?
Leave a comment with your choice, or even suggest someone new! Can’t wait to see your dream cast.
