We read books all of the time that we think, “Now that would make a fabulous movie,” or a t.v. series for that matter. They have that great character or group of characters that jump of the page, the plot is full of twists and turns and drama that would look great on the screen, or any other number of factors. There are about as many reasons for adaptation as there are reasons for a book being good in the first place. Some, for whatever reason though, just call out for it. For me, my biggest adaptation wish is going to be coming true. HBO is doing George R.R. Martin’s Fire and Ice series. I’ve never been more stoked for something to come to the screen. I’m even more excited to see this than when I started seeing stuff for Lord of the Rings. Another I’d love to see is J.D. Robb’s “Death” series. The near future setting, great characters, and interesting cases would translate very well. I’m honestly surprised this has not been done yet.
Anyway, you tell me. What books/series do think should be translated to the screen?
