I'd like to see Adrian Brody as Ellis Wyatt. I've only seen him in Peter Jackson's King Kong and felt he was the only performance in the film worth applauding. In my mind he's the spitting image of how Wyatt first enters the novel: "He was young, tall, and something about him suggested violence, though she could not say what it was, because the first trait one grasped about him was a quality of self-control that seemed almost arrogant. (pg. 81)"
As well, im' curious how the music of Richard Halley will be composed. There's been little music I've heard in my lifetime that evokes the emotions that the descriptions of Halley's music do.
