They can be ones that haven't been made, or have been made but justice wasn't done when they were made.

Where do i start? There are a few good suggestions from books i've read recently that truly would look incredible on the big screen. Some of them are "The Wheel of Time" (Robert Jordan), "Earth's Children" (Jean M.Auel), "The Pillars of The Earth" (Ken Follett). But one idea that i'm really interested in is Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series. I've heard on the internet that it's either being made as a film or a tv series. Personally, i think its story and atmosphere is far better suited on the big screen.

The first book in that Jean M Auel series was made into a movie. It was a while back and I saw it on TV but don't remember if it was a made for TV movie or if it played in theaters. That book was Clan of the Cave Bear wasn't it?

A Confederacy Of Dunces
Spirit (and many other Masterton books that could be developed into decent films)

Having just read the first two books in the "Godless World" series, I couldn't help but think that they would translate well to film (or probably a series).

Winterbirth (Godless World)
Bloodheir (Godless World #2)
Fall of Thanes (The Godless World) (which is the one I haven't yet read)

Oooh Pillars of the Earth - good one! I'd love to see that. What else? Hmm...

Doctors, by Erich Segal, would make a good movie, I think. Also Jodi Picault's My Sister's Keeper.

Generally when books I love are made into movies, it's such a disappointing/traumatic experience that I think a better question is, "what books do you love so much that you hope they never become movies?"

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 27, 2012 11:42:40 AM PDT
Pillars of the Earth has already been made into a TV series - a couple of years ago. It was made by Ridley Scott's production company.

Unfortunately, overall it wasn't very good. :-(

I didn't know that! Too bad it wasn't good.

It was better than some of the rubbish one sees in adaptations ... but it was pretty poor, overall. Don't rush to see it ...

I'm going to be just a little bit girly and say the Outlander series should be made into films, with the blokey who played Thor in the male lead :)

Andie says:
I picked up Outlander when it was free awhile back, but haven't read it, mainly because I'm not really into romances. However everybody seems to love this series...maybe I should try it after all.

I don't like or read romances either, Andie but I loved Outlander. I would consider it primarily as historical fiction rather than romance. Plus, Jamie is HOT. :)

For many, many years, I have wanted to see Clive Barker's "The Thief Of Always" be made into a movie. It has all the perfect elements of being an awesome movie with special effects and something to appeal to both older children and adults...though like many movies, they would probably ruin it, haha.

For a TV show, I think Stephen King's "Under The Dome" would be a cool TV show. It would mix together shows like Jericho and Lost together...I would recommend changing the ending, though.

Also, Stephen King's The Dark Tower needs to be made into a movie series. I think either JJ Abrams or Ron Howard were talking about working on it. I'd like to see Josh Holloway as Roland. He would be great!

Mistborn!! Would love to see Vin kicking butt. And see what they make Kandra and Inquisitors look like.

Treasure Island With the Success of Pirates of the Carribean movies I think Disney could make this one.
I've read about Long John Silver that even though he's the main villain he's still likable. Two virtues even though he's a pirate still a hardworking and likeable seaman,wise to pay attention to money managment,even though he has a disability he's still physicially courageous.

I hope a movie is made of the The Dracawards Saga - Familiar Origins Book 1 by B. Pine www.dracawards.com

I would love to see The Host by Stephanie Meyers .... As well as Deborah Harkness A Discovery of Witches movie series to go along with the books. I believe I read somewhere that both had already had the movie rights bought and were undergoing editing/re write for big Screen. If so.. Kudos !!

Swan Song would make a great movie - I'd definitely pay to go and see it.

I second Swan Song, Laura!

So I was extremely pleased to find out yesterday that the film/TV rights for these books have been optioned. Perhaps there is a benign deity, after all ... :-)
