Rick Mofina's "The Panic Zone"

Rick Mofina is a former crime reporter and the award-winning author of several acclaimed thrillers. He's interviewed murderers face-to-face on death row and patrolled with the LAPD and the RCMP. His true-crime articles have appeared in the New York Times, Marie Claire, Reader's Digest and Penthouse. He's reported from the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Africa, Qatar and Kuwait's border with Iraq.

Mofina's novels include Every Fear, A Perfect Grave, Six Seconds, Vengeance Road, and the latest, The Panic Zone.  His thoughts about the actors who might star in an adaptation of The Panic Zone:
If my book The Panic Zone were made into a movie, I would cast Ethan Hawke in the role of Jack Gannon, the New York-based wire service reporter on the trail of a global plot to change the world. As the architect of that plot, Doctor Gretchen Sutsoff, the former CIA scientist, I would cast Meryl Streep or Glenn Close. I see George Clooney as Lancer, the federal security agent, working desperately connecting the dots and in the role of Emma Lane, the tormented young mother searching for her baby boy, I would cast Ellen Page.
