Who should play Hunter in the movie version of Yellowhead Blues?


Since the Highway Mysteries first came out several years ago, a number of readers have suggested that the stories would make a great television series. I think so, too! A few readers have even suggested actors who could play the role of the former RCMP homicide detective turned long-haul trucker Hunter Rayne.

As it happens, the latest Highway Mystery Yellowhead Blues is being featured as one of the novels in this week’s TaleFlick Discovery contest. As the TaleFlick website says:

TaleFlick Discovery is a weekly contest that allows the public to vote on which stories they want to see adapted to the screen. Fans can now be involved earlier in the filmmaking process than ever before. 

The contest opens for voting at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, January 8th and runs until 4 p.m. Pacific Time on Friday, January 10th.

And just for fun, feel free to post in the comment section below which actors you would choose to play the role of Hunter Rayne, Dan (Sorry) Sorenson or Elspeth (Big Mother Trucker) Watson in a TV or movie version of the Highway Mysteries.

  1. For Hunter, Jude Law. When will book 6 be released? Book 5 was the best in my opinion.

    • Thanks, Stephanie. I’m afraid I’m way behind on book 6, having allowed myself to take on a few other projects over the past several months. I hope to get back to it soon, so it’s still possible it will be out this year.

  2. We will keep our fingers crossed.

  3. Elspeth–Melissa McCarthy or Cathy Bates; Sorry–Eric Christian Olsen; Hunter–3 choices–Matthew McConaughy; Colin Ferril or Denzel Washington.
