Speaking of books that SHOULD be made into movies -- "The Rosie Project" is at the top of my list. I LOVED this book. Adored it. And not just because I'm surrounded by Aspergers' sorts all day everyday. But because it's a great story with great characters. Last night, my friend in Oz, Nicki, got to see the author Graeme Simsion in Australia. (I'm so jealous!) She sent me a small clip of him reading from his new book, and I'm so anxious for it. Sadly, it's not here in America, but what should my beautiful friend do? She is going to the post office for me and mailing me a copy!! I will be one of the first to read it here in America -- how's that for bragging?
This movie is having trouble getting made because Jennifer Lawrence dropped out because of a financial dispute, then the director bailed. And Ryan Reynolds, who I think is all wrong for the part, left as well. So they'll recast it. I think that the director of "Silver Linings Playbook" should direct. David O' Russell gets the dramedy! Once he signs on, maybe J. Law will come back. She'd be the perfect Rosie, but that part will be easier to fill (in my estimation) over Don Tillman. Don needs to have the right mix of left-brained cluelessness along with an infectious charm. Ideas?
If he was younger, maybe Robert Downey, Jr. I could see Chris Hemsworth in the role.
So I wait with anticipation for my book to get here. Also, another lovely reader who knows my love for David Crowder is sending me his new CD from the Passion concert. Y'all are just too good to me!
