We, 26 movie bloggers, have been playing this fun game called Hollywood Fantasy Draft created by Castor of anomalousmaterial. We have to pretend that we are a movie producer. We need to cast some actors and actresses and find the right director to direct the movie. The rules are simple, we are not allowed to choose the same director or cast that had been chosen by other producers.
Castor listed us from 1 to 26, the order was reversed for each draft. Here are the link for 1st draft, 2nd draft, 3rd draft, 4th draft, 5 draft, 6 draft and 7draft. Castor also give 3 supplemental drafts Or you can see it easily in this list from anomalousmaterial for all the producers.
At first I want to choose Christopher Nolan as my director but Travis had chosen him before me. Then I prepared Stephen Spielberg as my director, but once again another producer stole him away from me, it was Dan who chose him. So I choose Peter Jackson because I’m going to do an adaptation from Manga, and Jackson has proven that he can create good adaptation movie.
Then come my turn to pick actors and actresses. Hehehe I don’t have to think hard for this, anyone who knows me well can easily guessed my 1st actor. I choose Cillian Murphy without much consideration because he can play anything. My second actor is another brilliant actor by the name of Tom Hanks. I really want to see Cillian teaming up with Tom… I wish one day they can play movie together.
For my 4th, 5th and 6th pick, I picked my actresses. My first pick is the talented Kathy Bates, I have already thought a perfect role for her. Then I chose my leading actress from Japan, Nakama Yukie will be the main center of my movie. I was going to choose Cate Blanchet as Tom Hanks’ wife but Ruth already picked her before me, so I chose Nicole Kidman because in my eyes, only Cate and Nicole has the grace and proud I needed for the supporting role off my movie.
For my 7th pick, I go back to Ireland, I needed the right man to be Cillian’s father, and I couldn’t think of anyone better than Liam Neeson.
My movie will be filled with only 9 people from the beginning to the end. I have already chosen 3 actors and 3 actresses, I can still chose 1 more actor and 1 more actress.
For my supplemental draft I chose Ewan McGregor to replace Sharlto Copley (he was taken by other producer) and Noomi Rapace.
I needed one more actor to play as Cillian’s friend but couldn’t find the right person, I wanted Tom hardy but he had been chosen by other producer Finally, I chose Gaspard Ulliel as my last pick.
Now that I have picked my cast, I must write my movie pitch. My schedule is on September 1. As I already said before, my movie will be based on Manga by Watari Chie, but not 100% exactly the same because I have to revise some scene, it’s a psychological thriller.
Here are my picks and comments and pictures (mostly provided by Castor except for Cillian Murphy)
