Books To Be Turned In To Movies.


Recommended Posts

I just finished reading several books that will be made into movies in the near future.

 

Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game & Ender's Shadow will be made into a single movie due on 2006. If you guys enjoyed the Artemis Fowl series and Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers, you'll enjoy these books. When I read them, it took me only a day and a half to read these books, they're that good.

 

Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is already in production and is due out next year. One of my favorite books of all time. Hilarious. I just hope the movie version contains all the wit and humor as the books.

 

Oh and of course, Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code is also being made by Ron Howard no less. I'm not expecting much from this movie since I didn't enjoy the book and I don't have that much respect for Ron Howard as a filmmaker. Blah.

I've heard Disney currently has C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia in the works. I wonder if they will be making it as each book into a film (like Harry Potter) or if they will just make a movie of one book - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for one, being the most famous of the Chronicles, plus the fact that it is the book already in the works as a movie (see Disney's version of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles). They are all very lovely books for a quiet afternoon read, and a childhood favorite of mine! I hope Disney does them justice! :)

Douglas Adams is my god! I'm totally in love with the Hitchhiker series (particularly MOSTLY HARMLESS). Too bad Adams died before seeing his creation come to the big screen. :cry:

I know! I'm still contemplating on naming Hitchhiker my favorite book of all time. If I don't read anything better by the end of the year, it's going straight to the top of my list.

 

You know who they chose to play Arthur Dent? That guy in Love Actually who played the porn star! Coolness!

Try also getting Adams' other works like "Dirk Gently" and "Long Dark Teatime of the Soul". Hilarious yet profound s**t!

I was able to catch it a year ago at the cable channel Wowow. It's French though. They probably have it on dvd already, I just don't know where to look. :)

Tuesdays with Morrie

The movie version of Tuesdays with Morrie came out before the book itself became very popular. I remember seeing this in HBO about 2-3 years ago. Jack Lemon played Morrie and Hank Azaria played Mitch Albom.

 

 

I'm looking forward to watchine Lemony Snicket's Unfortunate Series of Events

I loved the Narnia books. I wish them luck with the movie adaptations, because The Last Battle will be really difficult to do since it brings back everyone from all the other books. Even if they do one (film) every couple of years, it will take them at least 14 years to finish the series. They'll need to hire new actors to play the ones from Wardrobe.

a friend told me before na may movie na daw yung tuesday's with morrie..matagal na..i dont know if its true :unsure:

 

I think it was a TV movie. I watched it a couple of years ago. Jack Lemon played Morrie and Hank Azaria played Mitch Albom. It was such a crayola movie. :cry:
