    What is a book that you loved that you feel should be turned into a movie...but has not yet?

    Often, the books are usually better than the movies, but what is one book you would LOVE to see adapted onto the silver screen?

    Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. It's a story about a hostage situation and full of surprises.

    I watched "What The Bleep Do We Know!?" - a documentary-style narrative describing quantum physics and some of its loftier interpretations... Having an interest, I didn't find it terribly boring, but it certainly wasn't a typical story with a particular plot and everything...

    In the same way, I think if they turned Robert M. Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" into a movie, (and if they managed to convey the book's difficult subject-matter adequately) it would be awesome enough to delight many quasi-intellectuals, and provide enough of a plot-line for others to follow as well...

    "The Lion's Game"  by Nelson DeMille.  It has to do with a terrorist.

    It is an absolutely awesome book.  One of the best I've ever read.

    I can't tell you because I'm still working on the screenplay.

    "Brains: A Zombie Memoir" would be an awesome movie.

    An amazing movie would be Red Storm Rising by renowned author Tom Clancy. The only reason I can think of as to why they haven't made a movie is that the plot is too outreaching. In the fact that I mean there are too many character and subplots, with a number of vast overlying plots. It would be a screenwriter/directors worst nightmare I suppose. With lots of funding required for the special effects and war materials. Perhaps an HBO series would suffice. smile

    A children's book series called "Hank Zippzer" about a 4th grade boy growing up in NYC.  The stories are so funny and I think  would translate well into a movie.
