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
