When she dreamcasted Fear the Darkness, the second book in the Brigid Quinn Series, she imagined Jamie Lee Curtis in the Quinn role.
Here Masterman takes a different approach for casting the lead for an adaptation of A Twist of the Knife, the third book in the series:
When I first conceived Brigid Quinn, I had been reading a Jack Reacher novel. So I thought, what if Jack Reacher were a woman? Then I thought, what if Jack Reacher were a woman approaching 60? She'd be smart, and sexy, and physically fit, and could kill a man with her bare hands. So I guess Tom Cruise has to play her. She's a little shorter but I think he could manage it, and he'd look good in a white pony tail.Visit Becky Masterman's website.
