Mitchell Scott Lewis's "Death in the 12th House"

Mitchell Scott Lewis has been a practicing astrologer and teacher in New York City for more than twenty years. His Starlight Detective Agency mysteries are Murder in the 11th House and the recently released Death in the 12th House: Where Neptune Rules.

Here he dreamcasts an adaptation of the new novel:
When they make my book into a movie, astrologer-detective David Lowell could be played by several actors. Al Pacino, or Liam Neeson come to mind. My first choice would have been Dennis Hopper, who I was fortunate enough to meet and spend an afternoon with shortly before his death; a truly exhilarating experience. I had a bit part in a movie Dennis made with Jackie Bissett and a great cast, written and directed by Linda Yellen, which so far has not been released.

Lowell’s secretary, Sarah, is a feisty, street smart woman in her early thirties. I would love to see Drew Barrymore in the role.

Lowell’s daughter, Melinda should be played by a self-assured woman also in her 30’s. There are a number of current actresses who would do justice to the role including Scarlett Johansson.
