Below is an interview I did for Suko's Notebook about my latest release A Good Man and its movie adaptation.
Suko's Notebook: In December of 2010, I first interviewed Vanessa Morgan, after having read her unnerving novella, Drowned Sorrow. I'm thrilled to present another interview with this writer in which we discuss her latest project A Good Man currently in preproduction with Radowski Films. It's about Louis Caron, a vegetarian who cares about homeless people, animals and the future of our planet. If Louis seems too good to be true, then trust your instincts, because he has a sinister side as well - in fact, he's a vampire. The story, the screenplay, the film - it all sounds very exciting to me!
Suko's Notebook: Which actors would you choose if there were to be a Hollywood remake of A Good Man?
Vanessa Morgan: I think Steve Buscemi would be brilliant as Louis Caron because he is odd and charming at the same time and he can be funny without losing depth. For the other characters, I would choose Melissa George as Emma and Jim Sturgess as Vincent.
Suko's Notebook: Superb casting choices, Vanessa! Steve Buscemi, in particular, is a wonderful, quirky character actor. I'd love to see this film, either the original version and/or as an American remake in the future. It sounds like it would be quite entertaining! Why did you write the screenplay for A Good Man (Un homme bien) in French, originally?
Vanessa Morgan: The Belgian production company Radowski Films asked me to write a screenplay for them about a vampire. It had to be in French because they already had some French actors in mind to star in the movie.
Suko's Notebook: How many languages do you know, anyway?
