Dani Kollin and Eytan Kollin's "The Unincorporated Woman"

Dani Kollin lives in Los Angeles, California and Eytan Kollin lives in Pasadena, California. They are brothers, and The Unincorporated Woman is their third novel. Their first novel, The Unincorporated Man, won the 2009 Prometheus Award for best novel.

Here Dani Kollin lays out some casting preferences for an adaptation of The Unincorporated Woman:
Sandra O’Toole – Julianne Moore. She’s got the intensity to play the role of our decidedly complex protagonist.

Admiral J.D. Black – Angelina Jolie. Admiral Black has a unique look and persona. One half of her face is best described as being particularly beautiful. The other half, due to injuries suffered in battle, is scarred and grotesque. Admiral Black refuses to have herself surgically corrected until the war is over. It’s a reminder to herself of the awesome responsibility of her job.

Marilynn Nitelowsen – Sandra Bullock. Marilynn is a woman who emerges from the shadows of the luminaries that surround her to become one herself (much to her own discomfort). She ends up being a pivotal figure in the story.

Sebastian – Patrick Stewart. Sebastian is the head of the avatar council. He’s charged with saving his race of AI’s in the face of an unceasing enemy.

Hektor Sambianco – Robert Downey Junior. Hektor is charming, intelligent and excruciatingly evil. Enough said.
