So the paperback edition of Guns of the Dawn is now out, and to celebrate I thought I’d mock up an entirely spurious casting of the film that Hollywood is surely clamouring to make (1). I had fun when I did this for the 10-film epic of Shadows of the Apt (2). For the sake of because I like it, the SOTA casting calls are here, here and here.
It’s a weird thing, working out an imaginary casting for the film nobody is making of your book. You keep thinking, “Yes, but would they take that role?” to which the answer is “WTF is wrong with you this is entirely in your head anyway.”
So here are my picks for Guns of the Dawn (3).
Emily Marshwic – Emily Blunt; Cristan Northway – Alan Rickman; Giles Scavian – Chris Evans
Tubal Salander – David Monteith; Marie Angeline – Jessica Biel; Daffed Mallen – Robert Carlyle
(1) Rights still available! Call now!
(2) I like to think there is some bug-ass crazy alternate universe where this actually happened, with the exact casting I specified. Except Jim Carey played Tisamon.
(3) Coming soon to an alternate universe near you!
