Patrice Sarath's "The Sisters Mederos," the movie

Featured at My Book, The Movie: The Sisters Mederos by Patrice Sarath.

The entry begins:
It’s natural for me to think of the movie that could be adapted from The Sisters Mederos, because in an earlier version of the story, I did write a screenplay with these characters, exploring their relationship and their adventures.

I would love for Daisy Ridley to play Yvienne Mederos. Yvienne is very much like Rey in the Star Wars universe. She is self-sufficient, smart, and courageous. She loves her family, and wants to save it. She tries to protect everyone around her, and she uses her wits as a weapon.

Hailee Steinfeld is my choice for Tesara. I’ve seen her play tough, and I have seen her play vulnerable, and throughout the book Tesara goes from timid and unsure to grimly confident in herself and her powers. Tesara has to come to terms with her strange abilities so she can make good use of them to save her family from its enemies.

Both these talented actors would absolutely rock at bringing The Sisters Mederos to the screen.

As for who should direct? No question:...[read on]
