Alba in adaptation of Bender novel
I discovered a few weeks ago--via both IMDB and Perez Hilton--that my favorite author Aimee Bender (I am writing my master's thesis on one of her books) has adapted her book An Invisible Sign of My Own into a screenplay that is now filming. Cast in the lead role is....Jessica Alba! While Ms. Alba is always worthy eye candy in action flicks I can't help but suggest that perhaps Zooey Deschanel, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman etc. might have all been far better options. Still, I hope the flick is as good as the novel, even with Alba.
