We were thrilled to learn that Colleen Houck’s YA novel Tiger’s Curse has been purchased by Paramount Pictures for a film adaptation. The story about a girl and the two Indian princes she is trying to save from an ancient curse has garnered immense publicity — and quite a cult following — over the last year. And the audience for the book is about to get bigger when the story is adapted for the big screen, so in order to get a jump start on the excitement, we went straight to the author herself to find out more about the film project.
RT: In the best of all worlds, who would you see playing the characters from Tiger's Curse?
Colleen Houck: I don't really have any specific actors I'd like to see in the different roles but I would want a cast that can not only capture the imagination in fast-paced action scenes but who would also capture the hearts of the viewers.
RT: As you were writing the story did you imagine it playing out on stage in your head?
CH: I think I'm a visual learner, so for me, I imagine a scene first and then figure out how to break it down into a linear language. I've always believed that the Tiger Series lends itself very easily to a visual medium.
