Who should play Wendy and Richard?

Another thing about being in the slow lane is that you can spend your time having amusing conversations on Twitter about who should be in the film version of the novel you’re recovering from publishing.

Oh, I wish more of you dear readers were on Twitter. It would be so much more fun if you were. Well I shan’t waste time on wishing for that…

I’m just pleased that at least two of you agree that Pierce Brosnan would be an excellent (and yummy) Kit. Yesterday a Twitter friend suggested Hugh Grant – a suggestion which took me by surprise. HG can be funny and charming but he doesn’t have what it takes to be Kit. Oh no. 

For Sally, my first choice is Meryl Streep.

For Wendy, we have the following ideas – Goldie Hawn, Jennifer Saunders (not my idea), and Sarah Alexander made to look 20 years older.

Richard is a bit of a problem. I am thinking Rob Bryden, but other suggestions are James Fleet (from the Vicar of Dibley) and Christopher Waltz (my original idea for Kit – now binned.)

Any ideas? Suggestions?

And Pippa? I am stumped.

Barbara Conn on Twitter has suggested Patricia Hodge for Pippa. Brilliant! Totally brilliant!

I think that Meryl Streep is the best candidate to make Sally (the same age ,she is spectacular actress , in my opinion the best and Streep has a good chemist with Brosnan "Mamma Mia". Wendy (Goldie Hawn ) and Richard (James Fleet) . Really make a film of the book ? REGARDS
