Which book would it be?

Let's assume they don't make a total hash of it...

lol - hopefully, not for the last time - i intend to get EVERYONE here hooked on it :)

ok, so... first off, i want to see a series, ala Harry potter - the Wonderland books - all of them - there's like a million (ok, more like 15) but i'd love to see them all in movie form, and perhaps a little bit more adult and darker? i just love the stories - sometimes i wish i'd been a film maker, i think i'd be a good one - sort of a Tim Burtony-Terry Gilliamy-David Lynchian type!

Anything by Thea Devine. They're so raunchy and dirty but still have a good plot... I think they would make great films. :)

Right there. Oh yeah baby. Right there.

It was, Anne Rice; Queen of the Damned. It was turned into a movie, and then Hollywood got a hold of it. The proposed history in that book, the lineage, the parts of the book that shows the true diversity in those that are damned and how they came to be and what they did with that experience.

Unfortunately, the female lead died in a plane crash, the sound track was overproduced, and the characters were severally under developed.

Such a great piece of writing, in my view, and it was raped.

I vote for a re-do.

I would have asked that the George R.R. Martin "Fire and Ice" series be turned into movies.

But HBO made it into a TV series! Great so far (Game of Thrones.)

The Day After Tomorrow, by Allan Folsom. This book has nothing to do with the 2004 movie.

The Stand by Stephan King

That crap they made and put on TV sucked.

The War of the Worlds by H.G.Wells

Not the Tom Cruise mess or the 1960s one. But a better one that follows the book/books with all the high tech CGI stuff we have, it could be interesting.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I loved the old black & white version. As long as they don't get people like Jolie/Pitt to do it. I'd like some unknowns that can Really act.

Yup, it funny, any time King is actually part of the production, the movie of his book sucks. But when he has nothing to do with it, it totally rocks. I can't explain it, it just happens.

I'm looking forward to seeing how King's, The Dark Tower movies turn out. With Ron Howard directing I am hopeful also I've had a lot of fun 'casting' the movie with my friends...
They seem to have run into some problems, but hopefully it will happen...

"Uhuru" which is the Swahili word for 'freedom by Robert Ruark in 1962 would be my choice.

He earlier wrote "Something of Value" which became a movie in 1957 with Rock Hudson, Dana Wynter and Sidney Poitier.

Both of these books had a profound effect on my life and my values.

Does TV series count? I could totally see Chelsea Handler's two books 'Chelsea Chelsea bang bang' and 'Hi Voldka it's me Chealsea' turn into TV series. It will be kind of like 'Two and Half men', the main character is an alcohol/drug/sex addict, except she's a sexy blonde.
