Ringworld.

Now that cgi is at the level that this movie could be done, it should be. Sure, there's really no plot to speak of, but there wasn't much of a pot to Titanic, and look how well that did. Visually, it could be a stunning movie. Just the shot of the arch going overhead would be worth the price of admission.

For other classic sci fi with the same issues, there could be movies of

Childhood's End
Rendezvous with Rama

I'm not sure we need everything in Known Space. And reading about a two headed, three legged alien with a voice like Marilyn Monroe works OK, but I think the reality would come across as absurd if you actually make Puppeteers in live action.
