Who would you cast in the movie version
There are so many great people acting today! For The Dream Protocol: Descent, I would cast the following:
Deirdre Callaghan: Chloe Grace Moretz (Because I loved her as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass and Deirdre is tough.)
Flynn Brennan: Taron Egerton (Because he had that good boy/bad boy thing down so well on The Kingsman.)
Sean Callaghan: Benedict Cumberbatch (Do we need to say anything else?)
Breck Callaghan: (Elle Fanning who seems the corruptible innocent)
Minister of Dream Justice: Mads Mikkelsen (Could he have been any scarier in Hannibal?)
Siobhan Callaghan: Morena Baccarin (A good mother figure with a touch of mystery.)
Dylan O’Brien: Alan Tudyk (One of my favorite actors from Firefly, Alan would by the consummate company man as the Minister’s Second-In-Command)
The Dream Protocol: Descent

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T GET OLD. In fiery young Deirdre Callaghan’s home of Skellig City, no one has dreamt their own dream in over a thousand years. Dreams are produced by the Dream Makers and sold by the Ministry, the tyrannical rulers of the city. In Skellig City, years of life are awarded equally and the ruined are cast away beneath the city on their 35th birthday.
Unbeknownst to the Ministry, Deirdre’s handsome friend Flynn Brennan is afflicted with a terrible disease – a disease that accelerates the aging process. Knowing his fate if the Ministry should ever discover his illness, Flynn has lived his whole life hiding from their watchful eyes. When Flynn’s secret is finally discovered, Deirdre is determined to free him from the Ministry’s grasp. But to save him, she will have to reveal herself to a shadowy enemy…one that none of them even knew existed.
