Movie Wishes~

This week’s question on HK was,

What book would you like to see made into a movie?  Describe the cast and if possible, why you chose them.


I think I’d love to see the Squire’s Tales made into movies but I am too tired to think about that so I decided to do the book I’ve long wished to see as a movie.


The Harvester by Gene Stratton Porter (Author of The Girl of the Limberlost and Freckles).  I love the story and have often thought it’d make a beautiful movie.


David Langston-  Campbell Scott  or perhaps Brendan Frasier

Ruth Jameson-  Kerri Russell

Granny Moreland-  Judy Dench if she can pull off a midwestern/hick accent (I think Granny Moreland had a hint of hick to her speech patterns though not a twang.)  Otherwise, maybe Angela Lansbury

Dr. Carey-   Someone like Harrison Ford but without as much charisma.  Definitely needs a sense of humor that can deliver dry wit.

Mrs. Carey-  Glenn Close

Dr. Harmon-  Needs to be young, sandy blonde, and with a kind face

Molly Barnet- Katie Keating

Henry Jameson-  Dale Midkiff-  I’d really like to see how he plays a “bad guy.”  Otherwise, Scott Patterson.

Alexander Herron-  Edward Herrmann

Mrs. Herron-  Lesley Manville
