Mercy Thompson Movie?


Now I hestitate to get my hopes up too high, but I couldn't not note that 50 Canon Entertainment has just optioned the film rights to Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series! Press release found here. Now...who could play Adam?

Comments

  1. I read about this, but in the article I came across they called Mercy a vampire slayer, which was weird.

    Anyway, I gifted your blog with an award. :)

  2. Yeah, I saw that "vampire slayer" term. Um, not exactly.

    An award?!? Why thank you!

  3. I don't think there exists an actor worthy of playing Adam! But I suppose we'd have to settle for someone . . . Hugh Jackman?

  4. Yep, I think he'd work just fine. Hmm...

    I think Christian Bale would make a perfect Adam. He's beautiful, hot, and very intense.

  6. Anon, good call. Why did I never think of him? Christian Bale would make a perfect Adam!

    One thing you have to rememeber is that in the books Mercy describes Adam being from the 50's and looks around his early or late twenties.
    Hugh Jackman I think that he's a lil but too old for the part and wouldnt really be... adam-y. lol.
    Gerard Butler has a scottish accent. That would be... wierd. lol. (I do not mean any disrespect. They're all REALLY good looking guys.)
    I personally think that (BE NICE PLZ) Ryan reynolds could MAYBE pullit off. If you catch him in a movie where he's serious, he seems kind of intense.

  10. Anon, this is true. Jackman is getting old for the part for sure. And he should definitely NOT have a Scottish accent (as much as I love them).

    I have recently become a fan of Ryan Reynolds and so if they dyed his hair darker, I think I can see it. I always picture Adam darker. This may be my favorite suggestion so far!

    I know right? Darker as in skin darker? Or Hair Darker? If you want skin AND hair than maybe we should look at a personal favorite of mine

    Jon Kortajarena.

    Sure, he's a model. BUT alot of models get acting deals right? He has slightly darker skin and darker hair. Plus... HE'S FREAKIN HOT! LOL.

    I listed 2 actors for each of the main characters. If this becomes a movie *fingers crossed*, the casting director will have their work cut out for them!

    Mercy - Michelle Rodriguez/Julia Jones
    Adam - Jonathan Rhys Meyers/Henry Cavill
    Jesse - Dakota Fanning/Sasha Pieterse
    Stefan - Zachary Quinto/Joshua Jackson
    Sam - Bradley Cooper/Mark Wahlberg
    Bran - Freddie Prinze Jr./Sean Faris
    Zee - Ben Kingsley/Patrick Stewart
    Darryl - Sam Horrigan/Bronson Pelletier
    Warren - Kellan Lutz/Chris Pine
    Ben - Ryan Reynolds/Ryan Gosling
    Kyle - Cam Gigandet/Wentworth Miller

  21. The model for the book covers is a part time bartender at the artist's local bar. He liked her looks for Mercy, and added the extra tattoos (his model has none).

    Chris pine would make a better Bran, he has that young adult look and has dominant qualities about him

    besides freddie prince junior is OLD.
    and sean faris is tan, isnt bran welsh?

    I love the idea of Eric Bana being Adam because Adam is supposed to have dark coloring, but the wolves are supposed to appear like they're in their late 20's so he might be too old to play Adam

    I know your all talking about the Mercy Thompson movie but your only thinking about Adam, your not thinking about Sammuel. If you do not remember in the books starting from the beggining it also talks about Mercy and Sammuel having a thing, then there is also when mercy went back to Aspen Creek and talked with Charles and the Marrok. there is also the other members of Adam's and the Marrok's pack that you haven't taken into account, if the movie is going to be a top notch you can't just think about 1 character and who is going to play it. You need to think of all the members and how they will co-exist together in the movie, to have a great movie you need an awesome cast not just 1-2 people.

    Paul Walker has always been who I've imagined as Adam.

    All I hope for is that Mercy is played by an actual native american (latino is not even close)! I mean really what's the point of making movies in america if your going to cast white people as middle eastern (Hidalgo)?! Also hopfully not someone with a supermodel's face, someone with muscles and rough hands, you know someone that looks like a mechanic.

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion—a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes. 
Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record, both are likel…

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…
