Stephen Kiernan's "The Baker's Secret"

As a journalist and novelist, Stephen P. Kiernan has published nearly four million words. His newspaper work has garnered more than forty awards — including the George Polk Award and the Scripps Howard Award for Distinguished Service to the First Amendment.

Kiernan is the author of the novels The Hummingbird, The Curiosity, and the newly released The Baker's Secret.

Here he dreamcasts an adaptation of the new novel:
Kyle Chandler is so macho, he would make an excellent Guillaume.

Leo DiCaprio is my heartless Captain Thalheim.

Natalie Portman plays Emma, if she's willing to have dirty hair for the entire shoot. Otherwise I want Emma Watson for that role, because a guy is allowed to dream, right?

Louanne Stephens is my ideal Meme, with a bearded Alan Arkin to play Pierre.

Mainly I want to know what new fresh face Hollywood would find to cast as Fleur -- a fourteen year old whom everyone agrees is the most beautiful girl in all of France.
