Life And Other Matters – Holiday Films and Books with Special Guest Lee Child: November 29, 2011
Hollywood knows we love to see movies at the holidays, so there’s always a blockbuster or two that makes it to the screen in that timeframe. For example, the Muppets movie just came out. There was Puss in Boots. And at Christmas you can expect Sherlock Holmes, War Horse and We Bought a Zoo.
One of the films in casting stages (maybe it will be out NEXT Christmas?!) is a Lee Child thriller featuring his main hunk Jack Reacher. We get in quite the discussion over whether Tom Cruise is the right guy for the part, and do movie-goers even care if the character doesn’t match the book description.
Plus, I talk with Lee about the casting decisions, how he got into writing, and how he helps authors new to the genre to get exposure.
