    I remember when I was really liked those books as a kid, they anounced they were going to make a movie around the time Harry Potter was really popular and they were making films from pre-teen novels to cash in. I think Richard Curtis might have been some how involved but I don't really remember.

    You do realise there was a TV adaptation of Stark, starring Ben Elton... I think that's all I've seen, I haven't actually read the book :)

    I did not realise that. Is it any good?
  • The Passage by Justin Cronin :) I know that the rights were already sold to a film studio at some point, but I've not heard anything else about it!
  • Storm Front by Jim Butcher

    The TV series of the Dresden Files isn't bad. In fact, I loved it. I'd just like something that's an actual adaptation of the books.
  • So it looks a "Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini is being made in a couple of years. I would also like the Bone franchise to be converted into movies.

    Supposedly in the works, but I'm super dubious about the insane amount of pop culture-referencing remaining intact. Even if they could afford the rights to the numerous video games, films, and music HEAVILY featured in the story, I doubt Lord Lucas is gonna allow images of kids landing Millennium Falcons in the parking lot of their virtual high school.
  • They interviewed Ernest Cline on Sword and Laser a short while ago, and he said that the movie version will definitely have to make some changes based on what movie/game/music rights they can get. But yeah, it's a fantastic book and I think the movie will be good even if they have to change some of the references.
