An upcoming project has writers and other creative types buzzing. It’s a new movie based on the book Apparitions by writer Raven Bower. If you haven’t picked up the book, I’d say it’s high time you did.
Rumors abound on who might be chosen to play the lead character, Bailey. The story calls for a strong female lead, and one can’t help but wonder if they will choose one of the usual suspects or cast an unknown. Whomever is chosen will have their work cut out for them with this demanding role.
As a dog lover, and Canine Behaviour Expert, I can’t help but speculate on the part of Thor. Hopefully with rewrites and edits, his part will still be as prominent as it is in Bower’s original work. As Bailey’s constant companion, the heartbeat at her feet, her anchor and strength, the dogs trainer will be put through the paces. Believability is key – and it has often been found lacking in movies that strongly feature animal actors.
This really is an exciting project, and one I will be keeping my ear to the ground over. As one of the few who has read the original screenplay (and been sworn to secrecy) I can say with certainty, that potential abounds with Apparitions. In a genre where actors, directors, and production teams have such a fine line to walk this one could become one of the great Horror movies of our day.
