Wish List for Book to Movie Adaptations

This forum caters to our literary tastes.

Postby chris2342 on Fri Dec 09, 2005 2:25 pm

I'd like to see Darren Aronofsky or someone equally as cerebral yet spooky try to interpret "House of Leaves" by Mark Z. Danielewski. It's the only book that has successfully creeped me out in probably a decade. It would indeed be a heady task to take on though.

Hyperion by Dan Simmons.

Scorcesse was talking about doing it a couple of years ago, that film would be more epic than anything being released today.

When Worlds Collide
and
After Worlds Collide

it was really one book, but it was friggin brilliant. the early movie doesn't count as it had nearly nothing to do with the story I read. Really really great stuff waiting to be used there.

Holy christ child, that would be a difficult adaptation. I have thought about it alot actually, and it would be killer to see it as a miniseries, but instead of telling the story like the book does, have one movie following the narrator in the present... one movie following the narrator as he discusses the Navison Docu... and the final movie would be the actual Navison documentary.

I know Arthur C. Clarke's CHILDHOOD'S END was mentioned earlier, and I have to reiterate that--in the right hands--that would make a fantastic film.

If they pulled out all the stops, an adaptation of Jack Ketchum's THE GIRL NEXT DOOR could be one of the most harrowing films ever made. I doubt the MPAA would stand for all the insane shit in that book, though. NC-17 for sure.
The whole world's wild at heart and weird on top.

This is a snakeskin jacket. And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

I'd be interested in Roger Zelanzy's Lord of Light as a movie, if only because of all the Mighty Thor-esque concept art Jack Kirby drew for it: http://www.lordoflight.com/art.html

I'd be interested in a 'good' Fafhrd & Grey Mouser movie, and I've be interested in a 'good' Stainless Steel Rat movie.

It's fun to imagine a live-action Journey to the West movie, but I don't think it'd work well.

Wow, that sounds like it would make a fantastic movie.

I assume you have read the book, how big a budget would the story need for it to be done justice on screen?

Kirby's designs look cool too.

Have you heard any news about this project being picked up recently or anything?

Agrees. Just read the book for like the tenth time just to try and see how good it would be as a movie. And I think it would do rather good. The second book is crappier so you'd probably want to either only make the first book, or make a second and/or third movie based on all the rest of the books.


And by the way: Super-Cannes and Cocaine Nights by the great JG Ballard would be great movies.

surprised no one has mentioned Stephen R Donaldson yet. i'd like to see something of his adapted for the big screen. The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant would be at the top of my list, but The Mirror of Her Dreams/A Man Rides Through duology or The Gap series would be great to see done well on the big screen too. for anyone who likes good science fiction with an edge, The Gap series is a must read, imo. another series i'd like to see on the big screen is from Patricia McKillip: The Riddlemaster of Hed/Heir of Sea and Fire/Harpist in the Wind.

The Mist by Stephen King would make a great movie, probably doable in 2 1/2 hours and be damn near a perfect translation.

Id also love to see The Shadow Over Innsmouth by HP Lovecraft.

Lastly, not realistic in the least unless a filmmaker wanted to make either 20 movies or a multi season tv series with the budget of a small country's net worth, but the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan would be interesting to see.

Bringing Down The House, not the novelization of that damn Queen Latifah movie, but the story of those M.I.T. kids that mastered card counting and broke a casino in Vegas. Actually, this book is already being adapted...by the guy that wrote Analyze That and Be Cool, unfortunately. No doubt he'll dumb the book down. Often times I've thought about quitting my job, quickly adapting it myself and submitting it around the same time the hack writer does. Not that I'm a good writer, I'm not. However I know my piece of crap will smell better than his.

Neya, I've heard great things aobut the Wheel of Time books, but I haven't read any yet. What do you think of them?


They're fantastic, but honestly I think the story has gotten away from Jordan. Up to eleven books now, and the last three books total advanced the storyline less than one single book did earlier in the series. Early on, it's fantastic, the first six books will grab you and not let go, books seven, eight, nine and ten will likely piss you off for slowing down, becoming more politically oriented and muddled a bit. Book eleven revived the feelings of the earlier novels a bit, more resolution, more progression, but I think the damage was done with the midcycle lull.

Overall, the series is a worthy read, a time consuming one, but definately worth doing, but depending on your reading speed, wait a tad so Jordan has time to work on the supposed final book.

Anyway, just so that wasnt a total derail, Id also like to add that a movie adaptation of the Dragonlance Chronicles would be nifty too.

Hell, the footnotes alone are a movie...with a 4hr run time.

Tho' I would love to see HBO do this, along with Gravity's Rainbow.

I really think that, if the screenplay was tight enough and the budget was high enough, THE WHEEL OF TIME would indeed make a great series. Really, if you cut out a lot of the bickering and the "Mat/Rand/Perrin never has this problem with girls" stuff, there's a good 3-hour movie to be made out of each book there. Whether the public will continue to swallow large-scale fantasy, I don't know. NARNIA seems to be doing well, but...

I think at this point, no, not one on this size and scale. Wheel of Time would either be neutered beyond recognition if each book were a 3 hour movie, or it would take multiple movies per book, either way, the story would either be too hacked apart or too drawn out to keep audiences. Heck, a film franchise based on a 12 book long story would be alot for anyone to swallow.

An animated tv series would work, each book could easily provide enough material for an entire season of half hour, maybe even hour long episodes.

Too true. It is kind of a lot to ask of the public: "We have a twenty-movie series coming in at about 60 hours! Come watch!" I like the idea of an animated show. It would be nice to have SOME kind of adaptation. Still. Not holding my breath

One thing's for sure. Better unfilmed than neutered. Sci-Fi's stupid fucking EARTHSEA shit convinced me of that once and for all.

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R.R. Martin.

Anyone heard of this series?


Since nobody answered your question, so I'll give it a shot...

The Amazon reviews are spot on. This is fantasy at its very best. The writing for the first book, A Game of Thrones, is so tight and crisp the energy flows from one chapter to the next. There is absolutely no filler in that first book. The next two books continue and expand the great story, although the writing's not quite as perfect as in the first. The series would make a horrible set of movies however. They're simply too big. The 3 books for LOTR was about 1100 pages. The first 3 books for A Song of Fire and Ice stands at roughly 3120 pages.

Anyone thinking about starting the Wheel of Time series? Do yourself a favor and wait until Jordan finishes the thing, otherwise you'll only end up frustrated and angry like my father.

Two fantasy series' that might make good movie-fare:
The Belgariad by David Eddings. Fun linear story with good character chemistry. The five books could easily be condensed into three movies. They'd fill the gap between the Disneyland Narnia and the darker Middle-Earth.

The first six Dragonlance books would also work well. You've got interesting, movie-friendly characters(Raistlin, Tas and Fizban are legendary) and the Dragons could make for some awesome CGI work. Plus Angelina Jolie as Kitiara would be hot!

I think the works of Robert Heinlen are ripe for big-screen adaptation, and as much as Dick's stuff is used i am surprised Heinlen's work hasn't been tapped into yet. Luc Besson should make a movie based on a Robert Heinlen book, like Friday. that would be very cool.

My pick goes to Lives of the Monster Dogs by Kirsten Bakis. A kind of retelling of the Frankenstein story meets old yellar. Worth the read, and would make a fantastic movie.

I'd also like to see Geek Love get turned into a film, but only if it were an animated film.
