Dani and Eytan Kollin's "The Unincorporated War"

Dani Kollin is co-author (with his brother Eytan) of The Unincorporated Man and the recently released The Unincorporated War.

Here he shares some ideas for casting the lead in a big screen adaptation of the series:
The protagonist of The Unincorporated Man and The Unincorporated War, Justin Cord, must be the living embodiment of a value (freedom) and as such is not granted a wide birth for real pathos (the bad guy on the other hand is wonderfully evil). Who could pull that off and still be captivating? A few actors come to mind: Ulrich Mühe whose work in The Lives of Others was subtle, yet mesmerizing or perhaps Clive Owen, whose Children of Men performance was also understated but outstanding.
