Here Norton dreamcasts an adaptation of If You Left:
Hmmm. First of all the thesis is delicious: I didn’t think that anyone would be interested enough in my book to turn it onto a movie, so I didn't have any actors in mind when I wrote If You Left: I just hoped I might sell a few copies.Visit Ashley Prentice Norton's website and Facebook page.
But now that you ask, I would have to say I would love to cast Claire Danes as Althea— she has that dark yet funny, outsider thing going.
Simon Baker as Oliver—he’s so handsome—-yet at the same time adorable enough to get away with all the crap he inflicts on Atlhea at the beginning of the novel.
Clem as a younger Mackenzie Foy.
Maze, well that’s a hard one. Since he’s mainly a projection of Althea’s desires, I think he would have to be an inconnu, ripped off a job site in East Hampton somewhere.
