Wouldn't it be so cool!



i can dream, can't i?

Thank you, Kyra and Rachel for hosting the WIP - The Movie blogfest! I love it! I have sometimes thought of how unbelievable it would be to see my book as a movie! We all have dreams. But first I have to get it published. And before that, I should get an agent. So much to do!

Anyway, here is my dream cast, for now, and a little about the main characters from my techno thriller novel, Pop Travel...

Leonardo DiCaprio
J. L. Cooper - Once a dynamic lawyer, Cooper's fear of pop travel laser teleportation cost him his wife and his confidence. Now a reclusive small town detective, his initiative is sparked by a mysterious client giving him hope of proving his fear of pop travel is not unfounded.



Reese Witherspoon

Geri Harper - Spunky and smart FBI Agent sent undercover to extract evidence from Cooper and protect celebrity inventor, Hasan Rakhi, and is surprised by what she discovers.


Aziz Ansari
Hasan Rakhi - Super genius, The Creator of pop travel, and a prisoner in his own plantation paradise, Hasan is a dramatic, joking, and sincere young man being used by the corporation he helped found.


Had to add a song - "New Low" by Middle Class Rut. It's futuristic and an upbeat, down on your luck song. Perfect for Cooper =)

A smash hit, right? Thanks for stopping by! And if any of you wonderful stars are interested...Call me! (ha ha, still dreaming =)

PS - Today I have a teenager. Dun, dun, daaaaa!

Anything starring Reese Witherspoon will be epic! Wonderful picks, and great info about the characters!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I have a feeling DiCaprio will be a popular pick today!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Nice choices. I'm sorry I missed out on this. Not that I had any actors figured out--other than Chase Crawford for the love interest. :)

M.J. Fifield said...

Well, I'd see just about anything with Leo in it, so that sounds good for me. Plus, I love Aziz Ansari in Parks & Recreation.

Danielle B. said...

I would soooo watch this! DiCaprio! Yum!

Rachel Schieffelbein said...

Love Leo and Reese!! I'm not familiar with your other actor, but sounds like you've got a great story!!

Emily R. King said...

Great choices! I've been told I look like Reese. I DON'T BTW.

Peggy Eddleman said...

I love your choices!! Your characters sound fascinating!

Victoria Lindstrom said...

I love this post Tara - Leo and Reese work for me!

Jenny S. Morris said...

I've only read your query BUT I can totally see Leo as your MC!!

Never heard the song before but I like it.

OH and I love your new blog look.

Angela Cothran said...

Leo as Cooper? Yes, please! What great choices!

Theresa said...

Leo! Sold! I think he is one of the greatest actors of our time. Gorgeous and talented. Great choice. And Reese Witherspoon can seriously do no wrong. I love her. I never heard the song, but am loving it.

QueendSheena said...

Your story has me hooked. Leonardo is the perfect fit and I can imagine this as a movie already. What crazy agent won't pick you?

This is the closest thing to my story I've found (sci-fi element). Almost everyone else is going contemporary or paranormal. Love it! Pop Travel *giggles* and *opens mouth in awe* at the same time.

Will be adding this as link at the bottom of my own W.I.P. Movie post so others will check it out. Excellent work.

Angela Brown said...

As much as I love your movie star choices, I'm much more interested in the story itself. Very futuristic and thrilling. So yeah, waiting for your post that says, "Smart author goes through auction process and has selected her agent among all those vying for her attention to rep Pop Travel, the novel that will make you love to read."

I have all the things to do on my list as you with the agent and being published, haha! Great cast. Reese is very spunky and should be a great fit for your FBI agent and you can never go wrong with Leo!

Nothing wrong with thinking big. I can see this book as a movie.
