WiP: The Movie Blogfest

It's WiP: The Movie Blogfest time! Thank you to Kyra and Rachel for hosting this blogfest. Here's what I was asked to do:

Post a photo of the actors or actresses you would like to play the characters in your WiP if it were to be made into a movie. It can be just one character, or the entire cast!

Secondly, we want you to soundtrack your movie! Head over to YouTube, and post a song that best describes one of your characters, or your story as a whole. Again, you can pick one song, or several, it's entirely up to you!


I'm casting the characters of my current WiP. As most of you know, I just started a massive rewrite, but so far my MC's still look the same. : )

Nathaniel (if only Zac Efron had green eyes!)
Juvy enthusiast, guitar player, and fiercely independent.

And Rebecca (Emma Stone)
A bit spoiled, kindhearted, and a hopeless romantic.

And the #1 song on my WiP soundtrack is Starlight by Muse

Love Zac Efron and Emma Stone! I like the song, too - hadn't heard it before. Sounds like something you'd hear at the Bronze from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Nice casting :)

Emma is so great! She can play anyone! Great choice.

Emma was almost cast for my lead too, but lost out cuz of her age, lol.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

I LOVE Zac! He's such a cutie! And Emma Stone is one of my favorite's. I love her hair, her voice. She's awesome. And yay for Muse! :D

Angela Cothran said...

Yes! Yes! Yes! What perfect picks!!! I can totally see it :) How terrible is it that I've never heard this song before. No, I don't live under a rock :)

Theresa said...

Ever since Zac Efron ditched the spray tan and flat ironed hair he is gorgeous. Emma Stone is amazing. They'd look really good together. Great choices. And I'm obsessed with Muse :)

Jenny S. Morris said...

I'm not a hug Efron fan so I will have to picture someone else for Nate but I LOVE Emma!!

Yay for Muse. Great job!

Brinda said...

I hate to sound pervy since he's so young and I'm soooo...not young, but I think Zac Efron is the cat's pajamas.

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Excellent song, Emily! It's used in so many trailers already! I love Zac and Emma, great cast and thanks for the follow I'm following you right back!

Angela Brown said...

They'd make a very nice pairing. I like that music choice. Makes me really wonder what this story is about.

These are FAB pics. Also - love Muse

Lara Schiffbauer said...

Great picks! They'd look great in a movie together, too.

Emily R. King said...

Thanks, everyone!

I feel like a total fake right now. I think I suck at choosing actors to portray my characters. These are the closet I could find.

As for my story, I'm sorry I'm minus a blurb. My rewrite is so intensive, I didn't know where to begin. I hope to change that soon.

Thanks again! : )

Larissa said...

Ooh! Green eyes on Zac would be fab! And I ADORE Emma Stone. Excellent post!

Suzi said...

I had Zac too, but a totally different look. I went with the short, spikey hair guy.

tfwalsh said...

Great cast... geez Zac is cute... love Muse.

Sarah Pearson said...

That's one cute couple - and Muse is perfect for every occasion :-)

Pk Hrezo said...

Awesome choices! I just LURVE Emma Stone.

Deana said...

Oh Emily I love these actors for Nate and Becca! And now I can really put some faces to them when I read your new version:)

Leigh Covington said...

Zac and Emma! Oh yeah! Maybe it should be Zac and me tho? Would that be okay???/ ;)

Ruth Josse said...

Hey! Zac and Emma are the ispirations for my newest story! Looks-wise. How weird is that? Haha. You have great taste. :)

Holy moly, love the song!

Romance Book Haven said...

I love Zac anyway so green eyes on him would be an extra treat!

Great taste!

Medeia Sharif said...

Great casting choices and I love Muse. They're one of my favorite bands.

Have a wonderful week.

Alex Villasante said...

oh I love Emma Stone. She's the kind of actress who can make an imperfect character really sympathetic. She's just 'real' Love it!

Sophia Chang said...

Ah, Muse. Thanks to Stephenie Meyer we all have to get in line. lol
