Author Spotlight: Tyrean Martinson


Please welcome Tyrean Martinson, author of Champion in the Darkness!

If Champion in the Darkness were a movie, I would hope for the best of the best in everything. Wouldn’t we all, if we could have our books made into movies?
 
So, I thought I would run these ideas in casting, sound, and directorship by Livia, an expert in Academy Award winning fare.
 
Casting
AnnaSophia Robb as Clara, a young swordswoman 
Lucy Lawless (Xena, but blonde) as Stelia, her haunted mentor                                           
Daniel Craig as Dantor, Clara’s advisor and Stelia’s love interst        
Selena Gomez as Salene, Clara’s Best Friend                                       
Liam Hemsworth as Prince William                                                  
Katie McGrath (plays Morgana in Merlin) as Kalidess, the evil sorceress                                         
Bradley James (plays Arthur in Merlin) as Adrian, Prince of Aerland and Griffin Rider 
Anthony Head (plays King Uther in Merlin) as King Alexandros                  
 
A soundtrack written by Academy Award winner Howard Shore, and recorded at the famed Abby Road Studios by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Think Hobbit, LOTR, Hugo soundtracks.
 
Location of filming: partly in New Zealand, partly in the Caribbean, and partly in Scotland.
 
Directed by: Peter Jackson or Joss Whedon? I can’t decide.
 
So what do you think, is this a recipe for a movie success? Red carpet style or popcorn flick?
 
Thank you Tyrean!

  5. With your ideas for cast and sound, you could throw any random grouping together, toss them on the wall and yeah, it'll be a winning stick :-)

  16. Any movie with Lucy Lawless & Liam Helmsworth is alright in my book ;)Huge fan of Howawrd Shore's work & definitely Joss Whedon! Peter ('cause we're on a 1st name basis---him & I) can executive produce. Selena in an oscar-worthy film?? I'd go for an unknown actress for the lead...always go with an unknown. This was fun! :)
