On the Book View Café Blog, Vonda McIntyre has asked readers to recommend performers to be cast in a movie hypothetically being made from her novel Dreamsnake:
Now I have the opportunity to create the fantasy cast of the Dreamsnake movie, and I could use some help.
I have some ideas for Snake, Arevin (you’ll be surprised, but you’ll see I’m right), the Mayor, Jesse, and North.
I haven’t settled on who could play Stavin, Stavin’s three parents, Arevin’s cousin (the leader), Alex, Gabriel, Ras, Silver, Thad, the crazy, or Jesse’s brother.
I believe the cast is meant to be chosen from contemporary actors and actresses – although shouldn’t a science fiction writer know someone with a time machine who can retrieve anyone in movie history?
