Marius Gabriel's "The Parisians"

Marius Gabriel was accused by Cosmopolitan magazine of ‘keeping you reading while your dinner burns’. He served his author apprenticeship as a student at Newcastle University, where, to finance his postgraduate research, he wrote thirty-three steamy romances under a pseudonym. Gabriel's novels include The Ocean Liner, The Seventh Moon, The Original Sin, and the Redcliffe Sisters series, Wish Me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye, Take Me to Your Heart Again, and The Designer.

Here Gabriel dreamcasts an adaptation of his new novel, The Parisians:
One of the main characters in The Parisians is the French actress Arletty, who was disgraced for having an affair with a Nazi officer during the German occupation of France. Naturally, in an ideal world, I would have her play herself – that would be something to see!

Other characters include Coco Chanel. I can see Ruth Wilson doing a wonderful job with that role.

And we also have the chief of the Luftwaffe, Herman Goering, appearing in several scenes. I think John Goodman would be the perfect choice.
