The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life: HOLLYWOOD STYLE!

A lot of people have been asking who I would cast in a Hollywood version of my books so the other day I started playing with The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life. I just couldn't stop until I found someone to play nearly the entire cast. It was so dang fun!

Whenever I wrote books in my early teen years, I used to cut out pictures from catalogs and Vogue magazines to make a story board of my "characters". Seriously. I'm not even kidding. I still have some of the boards. And this felt like a backwards version of that.

I've been a huge fan of Joan Cusack and Annabeth Gish since their early days, so those two are really the biggest part of making this my "dream" cast. And I didn't realize until after I chose her that Zoey Deutsch is the daughter of 80's queen Leah Thompson, which totally solidifies my choice of her as the lead character. Just seeing all these characters "come to life" really makes me want to see them interact with each other.

This was all just in fun, so don't start spreading word that a movie is in the works. Unless you personally know of a rich Hollywood producer who's looking for something fun to invest in. In that case, go for it.

Awesome celebrity cast! If I see a blurb about a director or producer looking for a cool book to make into a movie..I might just throw a suggestion of this book his way. But like you said...nothing can happen until some dear producer pops in the picture. Sigh, but you've done a great job writing and creating book covers.

Pat yourself on the back girl!

I should go make a board now - sounds like fun.
I'm not familiar with Zoey Deutsch.
Cool cast, Jen.
