Actors I would pick for an adaption of Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs. The most difficult roles to cast imo are Adam Hauptman and Bran, if you want to stay true to the books. Sam is a more complexe character than Adam. So for Adam you need an actor who plays clean cut character but who can be more apealing to the audience than many layered Sam. For Brand you need to find a 17 year old who at first glimps does look like a 17 year old but when required outdominates all the other and older Alphas. He needs to be able to play underlying power.
Imo two formats make sense for these books, either as Movie on the big screen (Superheros are dominating so this might be a nice alternative Genre) or Cable TV show if the market is not saturated already. A Network TV Show imo can not stay close to the source material due their need for long seasons. The books have a fast paced plot, so I would prefer a 10-13 episodes season.
Still looking for an actress with Native American ethnicity for Mercy. I am open for suggestions. Michelle Rodriguez was originally first on my list, Jessica Alba second. But I have drawn back from them.
Best supernatural Wolf show on screen
This show was created for kids and teens,
The show revolves around the two main characters Maddy and Rhydian who meet in the first episode. Both share the same secret, they are Wolfbloods. This means heightened senses, their hunger for meat and often the need to run until at a certain age they are able to shift into a wolf. Together they manage teenage life, which is complicated enough, and bond over their secret although they come from a different background.
What first attracted to me as an adult was the concept of the Wolfbloods, what made me love it even more is the fantastic writing. In one sentence: Best wolf show on screen. And I watch many shows that somehow have a wolf, no matter which definition, involved. So far no other show has been able to transfer wolf and pack behaviour to humans so naturally like Wolfblood. This is due to the fact that they portray natural wolfs - pack life/family life and not the Alpha/Omega hierarchy which only wolves in captivity show. The writing for me is exceptional! Very nice built up story lines, good balance, small detailed scenes which are referred to in later episodes without making it to complicated for a younger audience. Great supporting characters (and actors) which have their own subplots - which are all enjoyable and interesting to watch. Although the story does not make the bonding between Rhydian and Maddy easy - it is so refreshing and uncomplicated to watch them grow close. Their story is a sweet delight.
I wish Debbie Moon (creator and writer) could bring Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson books to screen.
