Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/TV Shows
This would make a fantastic movie. The stunningly gorgeous scenery, the love story – it would be absolutely amazing. The book was wonderfully evocative. A movie would be able to capture all of the best bits about the novel.
This is a great book about a post-apocalyptic world. It always reminded me a little of The Stand (another favourite by Stephen King that has already gotten the TV mini-series treatment and soon to be a movie). I always thought it would make a terrific movie.
This is an incredibly tense read and I honestly think it would make a really scary movie. Just like in Dawn of the Dead, the main characters are trapped in a single location – a school – and the atmosphere is out of this world.
Truthfully, this is one of my favourite books ever and I would love to see a movie adaptation but I think I would cry if it was done wrong. If they got it right it could be incredible though as it is such a beautiful story.
This book could definitely work as a movie (a little bit similar to Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) and since Jellicoe Road is already been picked up for a movie (and the script is being worked on by Melina Marchetta herself) it would be great for another Aussie author to be able to adapt their work.
I really love this series and I think there is ample material for a television series. It has a unique twist on the supernatural and the success of TV shows like The Vampire Diaries (despite its waning quality) shows that there is still a market for this kind of show.
A post-apocalyptic world, kick-ass heroine, shapeshifters, and a slow-burn romance? I think this could really work as a series (much like Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld which has been turned into a series Bitten). Kate is an awesome protagonist who I could really get behind.
I would love this to be turned into a series like they did with Game of Thrones! This is my ultimate favourite fantasy series and I think it really could be an amazing series (along long as they cast someone terrific as Fitz and The Fool, of course).
I think this series would lend itself really well to a television series. The characters in the book produce their own ghost-hunting show after all. This could be really super-scary and could even follow a similar format to the X Files since Perry and Dex do investigate various psychic and paranormal phenomena. This would rock it as a TV show!
Hot brothers who can control the elements, enemies out to destroy them, plus trying to live on the bread line and cope with high school at the same time? I would seriously love for this to be turned into a series. The only question is who would be able to play Michael? *strokes chin thoughtfully*
