Movie Contest Picks Up Steam

As soon as we get $200 million, we can start production of the Bell Mountain movie. In the meantime, the contest to cast the movie is providing a lot of fun around here–especially for some of our younger readers.

I would like to see more of us old folks pitch in. Why not? It’s a party! And everyone’s invited. Just suggest some actors to play some characters in the books, or a director–can’t make a movie without a director. The only way for this to work is if a lot of readers play the game. The more, the merrier.

So far, there have been a few suggestions that struck me as right on the money, why didn’t I think of that, just the ticket, etc. I may have to modify the contest to provide for more than one winner.

The winner (or winners) will receive an autographed copy of The Temptation, Book No. 11 in the series, as soon as it’s published. It shouldn’t be a long wait, everything’s just about done.

And if you haven’t read any of the books yet, now’s as good a time as any to get started. Just click “Books,” and in addition to blurbs, covers, and sample chapters, you’ll find a couple of ways to order a book right away. All of them are available in both paperback and kindle format.

  1. I would cast John Wayne as Helki. He often played a leader of men, yet liked to ride off into the sunset by himself.

    I think a teen Elizabeth Taylor would make a good Ellayne. Behind that shorn hair would be plenty of feminine beauty.

    Elayne’s dad could be played by Leslie Howard, who has an aristocratic air about him making him do things properly, yet a strong man of many pliable resources.

    And Clark Gable to play Martis because he is so good at playing the bad guy even when he is suppose to be playing the good guy.

    And since I have chose Howard and Gable, I might as well choose Victor Fleming to direct it (he can use another Oscar for best director).

    With such accomplished actors and an exceptional director, more than $200 million may be needed in the budget.
