GRID: You Cast the Movie

Have you ever wanted to enter the process of feature filmmaking?  Well, most movie critics agree, the key to producing a successful film is casting.  Here’s your chance to play casting director.

The screenplay for GRID is adapted from my novel GRID, a futuristic romantic adventure featuring the character of New Orleans and its excesses in the year 2032.  I originally wrote the screenplay with the hope that Steven Spielberg or James Cameron would want to produce it with stars like Angelina Jolie as the enigmatic beauty Desiree Bazile, and Brad Pitt as the idealistic street musician Scott Hartley.  No such luck as yet.

But this year producer Peter Maez at Kamma Pictures in Hollywood selected my GRID screenplay for development.  The next step is financing and the critical job of casting that is essential to attracting investor interest.

How are your casting skills?  Who do you see in GRID’s leading and supporting roles?  Of course, you need to read GRID’s description on Amazon, and to be fair, you should spend the $2.99 to read the Kindle edition.  But thereafter, you are qualified to render your casting judgments.  And if you respond, your cast assignments will be shared with Peter Maez at Kamma Pictures; and when GRID is produced using any of your recommendations, I promise you a “thank you” screen credit.  Come on!  Let’s make a movie!

  1. I wish you well. The movie-making venture sounds exciting. I h ave something to share with you off the record. Expect a call from me.


  2. Leonardo DiCaprio and Ed Norton, Charlise Theron, James Gandolfini,

    • I forgot one name Paul Giamatti.

      • Good start. The “Pro” and “Sal” are men in their 80s, so we could even go for Robert Duvall. Giamatti can look “old” too, e.g. his John Adams. Gandolfini could play the tough Grid boss. Much of the action on the Grid tower requires gymnastic ability and muscle strength. Some of it can be shot against a “green screen”, but the CGI should be kept to a minimum.
