Now I'm going to cheat here because I do not have a WIP, unless you count this stubborn short story--WHY WON'T YOU BE WRITTEN??? Instead, I'm digging out a trunked novel, Ghost's Rain--and yeah, I cringe at that title. Should I ever return to it, I have a much better named planed for it.
It's a dystopia, set in a alternate world, starring the badass heroine Ghost.

As you can probably tell, it was a story with a lot of heavy themes, grand ideas, and I didn't have the writing chops at the time to comprise it all. I wrote about 20,000 words, rewrote the intro 3 times before calling it quits. Still love the story, and will probably harvest the epilogue for a short story--nice thing about trunked novels is that they make excellent short story fodder.
Anyway, I'm derailing this whole thing.
I'm sure most think Milla Jovovich would be the perfect candidate for playing Ghost, since she does play just about every action female role. And I'd agree, but I always thought Keira Knightly had more of the Ghost air about her, a fierce inquisitiveness behind the eyes. Of course, she'd have to put on 20-30 pounds of muscle and deflate her lips.
As for soundtrack, this is probably one of my few stories that has one. I was greatly inspired by Blade Runner's soundtrack as well as the anime Cowboy Bebop. A few select songs, all sort of somber pieces:
Rain by Yoko Kanno, sung by Mai Yamane
Metallic Rain by Vangelis
Blade Runner Blues by Vangelis
