The Choice Nicholas Sparks!

By zacwithah9 Sep 20, 2010 641 Words
The book I read this trimester was The Choice written by Nicholas Sparks. The choice is a heart wrenching story about two neighbors, Travis and Gabby, who end up falling in love. Spanning the eventful years of their young love, marriage and family, The Choice ultimately confronts the reader with the hardest question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

If i could make this book into a movie i would very known directors and actors because it would make the movie more interesting to the viewers. The directory i would use would have to be Nick Cassavetes because he has done many romantic movies such as the Notebook which was also based of a book written by Nicholas Sparks. The way Cassavetes films makes the motion picture more moving and he is experienced with this kind of romantic/dramatic plot line.

For the actors i would use Debra Messing as Gabby. Debra is perfect for the role of Gabby because the have very similar characteristics. Most importantly she has the fiery red hair that Gabby has in the book. I think that Debra has featured herself in many roles that were similar to Gabby such as her part as Grace in the hit Sitcom Will and Grace. She also has fresh face and it would be easy for her to play both 28 year old Gabby and 40 year old Gabby.

The next actor i would use Chris Pine for the character Travis. Travis is a laid back veterinarian who is very sporty and loves the outdoors. Chris Pine has that athletic look and physique. Chris Pine can play both 29 year old Travis and 40 year old Travis. Chris Pine has a very boys next door look which is needed because Gabby is supposed to have a huge crush on him. I think that Chris Pine and Debra Messing would have good chemistry and they would look good together.

In the book Travis’ dad is a huge part. I would have to cast someone who is older but is good at acting. I would use Mel Gibson because he is a really good actor and he is a crowd pleaser. I think he would bring in an older crowd of people to come see the move. He also has done romantic type movies before so it wouldn't be hard for him to get into character.

The next character are Travis and Gabby’s two daughters. These characters would be hard to cast because the are 8 and 5 years old so i would have to find two girls who look young and are good at acting. Also they have to look similar to each other and Chris Pine and Debra Messing. I would use Dakota Fanning’s little sister Elle. She has been in a few movies and she isn’t too young and she can look the age of the youngest daughter. For the older daughter i would use Noah Cyrus. She is the perfect age and she looks similar to Elle.

For the location of the movie i would choose the actually setting of the book. The book takes place in North Carolina. I think that since the book already has a perfect place so why not take advantage of it.

If all the casting worked out the way i wanted i think the movie could be a box office hit because it has all the elements a movies needs. It has a good plot line, great actors that are known by many people and the location is beautiful and perfect. The movie cost wouldn't be that bad because we wouldn't have to film anything outside of the U.S. Overall The Choice was an amazing book and a movie version could be just as amazing.
