    Books that would be good movies

    To take our minds off the fiasco on the football field this year.
    What books do you think would make good movies but have never been done? I've always thought that Fall River Dreams would be a good one to make into a movie. Great book.

    I'd love to see a high end production of Watership Down in computer animation.

    I wish they'd reconsider making The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. They said it was too close to National Treasure.

    My personal suggestion would be this.

    Amazon.com: The Gone-Away World eBook: Nick Harkaway: Kindle Store

    One of my favorite books ever & I think a good producer/director could make a career out of a film adaptation of this.

    A brief review of the book...
    From Publishers Weekly

    This unclassifiable debut from the son of legendary thriller author John le Carré is simultaneously a cautionary tale about the absurdity of war; a sardonic science fiction romp through Armageddon; a conspiracy-fueled mystery replete with ninjas, mimes and cannibal dogs; and a horrifying glimpse of a Lovecraftian near-future. Go Away bombs have erased entire sections of reality from the face of the Earth. A nameless soldier and his heroic best friend witness firsthand the unimaginable aftermath outside the Livable Zone, finding that the world has unraveled and is home to an assortment of nightmarish mutations. With the fate of humankind in the balance, the pair become involved in an unlikely and potentially catastrophic love triangle. Readers who prefer linear, conventional plotlines may find Harkaway overly verbose and frustratingly tangential, but those intrigued by works that blur genre boundaries will find this wildly original hybrid a challenging and entertaining entry in the post-apocalyptic canon.(Sept.)

    Cabinet of Curiosities (if done right)

    Someone tried a movie version on Preston and Child's "Relic" and just failed miserably.

    Re: Books that would be good movies

    This is Where I leave You by Jonathan Tropper - tailor made for a dramedy ensemble cast a la The Family Stone.

    Ten Thousand Saints - Would be an interesting period piece about the New York City punk scene in the early/mid 80s.
