Movies

I was going to say Motherless Brooklyn... then searched and found that Edward Norton is already making an adaptation. Sweet! {nm}

Anybody read any great books that you think would be a great movie? Daemon by Daniel Suarez, for me. {nm} HollywoodTycoon61 Aug 06, 12:16

Incarceron would make a great film, or Boneshaker {nm} RedDex Aug 06, 12:57

L.A. Rex by Will Beal. It's already optioned, but it's a great book. {nm} Smelly Monkey Aug 06, 13:12

A draft has already been written and ended up on the BlackList last year. {nm} skamanfu Aug 06, 14:18

Yep. I have it.Beal wrote it, and while it was good and true to the book, it needs a professional pass {nm} Smelly Monkey Aug 06, 16:53

i started that one recently, pretty good so far. Also, I love the action novels of Matthew Reilly, his Scarecrow character would be great {nm} islander Aug 06, 13:23

Flicker {nm} Moviesnob Aug 06, 13:23

Aronofsky was planning on adapting Flicker for a while. Pity it didn't happen, it would make a great movie {nm} numbersix_99 Aug 06, 15:43

he still owns the rights, but I dont think he's right for it. {nm} Moviesnob Aug 06, 15:50

Gangs Of Chicago written by same guy who wrote Gangs of New York {nm} thepizzaguy Aug 06, 13:36

Paradise Alley by Kevin Baker - One day it will be a feature film. And I will be the man who gets the screenplay credit. {nm} lhayes37 Aug 06, 13:38

Wasn't his book "Dreamland" optioned at one point? I seem to recall Dicaprio being attached. {nm} ChrisEW Aug 06, 13:50

It was optioned. But it lost steam. LDC backed out. It is on the back burner. Way back burner. {nm} lhayes37 Aug 06, 14:15

There may already be something in the works, IDK where to check, I always thought a Jonathan Kellerman would translate to film {nm} damenchipguy Aug 06, 13:55

J. Kellerman and his AlexDelaware series. I read those when I was just retiring in the late 80's and early 90's. Cast Ruffalo as Delaware. {nm} lhayes37 Aug 06, 14:14

Carter Beats the Devil. {nm} goodvibe61 Aug 06, 14:09

Peter F Hamiltons books! Vorian Aug 06, 14:12

I've always thought a few of John Sandford's early "Prey" novels could make good movies. {nm} shadowking Aug 06, 14:16

The Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker - sort of a sequel to Dracula. Also I liked Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill (adapted script was no good). {nm} skamanfu Aug 06, 14:19

"The Ninth Life of Louis Drax," which Minghella was working on when he died. "The Rehearsal" (Eleanor Catton), and the new David Mitchell, second gary Aug 06, 14:55

I was going to say Motherless Brooklyn... then searched and found that Edward Norton is already making an adaptation. Sweet! lukesed Aug 06, 15:27

He's probably been making an adaptation for 10 years {nm} secretstalker Aug 06, 15:41

As I Lay Dying would make a powerful movie. {nm} numbersix_99 Aug 06, 15:44

Henderson the Rain King by Saul Bellow joeoftexas Aug 06, 17:11

Donna Tartt's The Secret History Jane_Citizen Aug 06, 18:35

Unless it's two films, I think there are scale problems in making "Cloud Atlas" into a single feature-length feature. second gary Aug 06, 20:36

Forgot to say: Peter Behrens's, "The law of dreams." This would be an expensive and excellent film. {nm} second gary Aug 06, 20:48

A philosophical Investigation zodar Aug 07, 05:29

True. {nm} second gary Aug 07, 06:28

I read alot. Inside i will compile some authors as well as single books. tradermark Aug 07, 05:52

Keep listing, but start a new thread, as this is about to disappear into B2. {nm} second gary Aug 07, 06:34
