I thought of one, and being uncertain, I looked up Joyce on the imdb, to see if it had been done. They listed a 2000 Danish effort called The Wake. Seven hours and forty two minutes long. Silent. That must be pretty breathtaking. Or maybe just unendurable.

Actually, I thought Wishbone pulled it off pretty well....

I read this and immediately thought that Morgan Freeman or David Attenborough would be the perfect narrator for the Centuries.

This is the quote referenced, tell me who you hear reading it in voice-over.

"We are the centuries… We have your eoliths and your mesoliths and your neoliths. We have your Babylons and your Pompeiis, your Caesars and your chromium-plated (vital-ingredient impregnated) artifacts. We have your bloody hatchets and your Hiroshimas. We march in spite of Hell, we do – Atrophy, Entropy, and Proteus vulgaris, telling bawdy jokes about a farm girl name of Eve and a traveling salesman called Lucifer. We bury your dead and their reputations. We bury you. We are the centuries. Be born then, gasp wind, screech at the surgeon’s slap, seek manhood, taste a little godhood, feel pain, give birth, struggle a little while, succumb: (Dying, leave quietly by the rear exit, please.) Generation, regeneration, again, again, as in a ritual, with blood-stained vestments and nail-torn hands, children of Merlin, chasing a gleam. Children, too, of Eve, forever building Edens – and kicking them apart in berserk fury because somehow it isn’t the same. (AGH! AGH! AGH! – an idiot screams his mindless anguish amid the rubble. But quickly! let it be inundated by the choir, chanting Alleluias at ninety decibels.)"

Ah, yes. When I want to see a really good adaptation of my favorite literature, I like to see it performed with a Jack Russell terrier in the lead role. I still fondly recall Wishbone in A Man for All Seasons.

His rendition of Dysart in Equus was technically good, but I kept being afraid that the horses would step on him.

Rumor has it that, if they had gone on to do one more season, Wishbone would have done Caligula.

Kem Nunns "surf noir"...Tapping the Source, Dogs of Winter....they tried before and it ended up as Point Break although he wasn't directly involved.
(he ended up writing John from Cincinnati, which i guess was horrible. He also wrote screenplays for Sons of Anarchy, which I wasn't interested in, but seemed to do well.)

another vote for William S. Gibsons first 3 books, quite visual.
And Stevensons Snow Crash etc....although IMHO his later stuff after Crytononimicon was so wordy and weird I had a hard time reading it and abandoned him....

I'm going to be semi-onboard and counter-propose his Bridge trilogy. That's a universe that's closer to what we may recognize, and a bit more externalized (less cyberspace stuff, so overdone). And IMHO, the stories are a little more compelling.

Geek Love by Katherine Dunn would make a great movie or TV series. Same with The Elementals by Michael McDowell.

I'd love to see a big-screen/small-screen adaptation of Johannes Cabal the Necromancer.

Gawd, I hope the Amazon thing follows through, I love that book!

Interesting (and brilliant!) choices on the narrator I mentioned above, Cate Blanchett is genius! Is it weird that I re-read the passage in my head with Cate, Bill, Dame Judyand ironically enough, Billy Connolly?

I think Heinlein's Time For The Stars would be a great film-much easier to grok than his more political works.

A lot of good ideas here, though mostly focused on sci-fi.
Personally, I would never wish for a book I have read and enjoyed to be made into a movie. They always (for reasons good/necessary/mostly bad) manage to screw up the story I think I read. I walk away from the theater mostly disappointed thinking "No, that's now how it was supposed to be".
Plenty of books I haven't read for them to make good movies out of. Then I will be non the wiser about how they twisted the story.

Other way around, actually.

David Gerrold wrote The Trouble With Tribbles, and only recalled the flatcat story from Rolling Stones afterward. He realized that was where he got the idea, having read it earlier. Heinlein had no problems with it.

In fact, they became friends.

The top of my personal list is "Falling Free", which is part of the Vorkosigan universe, from before Miles' time.

CGI has matured to the point of being able to pull it off.

And use the Tom Smith song about it as the theme music.

I second H. P. Lovecraft. If the production would skip trying for shock value and look for suspense and dread.

I would like to see Dean Koontz's "Odd Thomas" series made into moview. There was one movie and it was good. Unfortunately it also starred the too soon departed Anton Yelchin.

I would also like to see Jack L. Chalker's "Well World" series made into movies, but I could see it treated more properly as a mini-series.

I know there was an anime version of The Lensman series, but it didn't really have much to do with the actual books. After the success of Star Wars I'm surprised no one's thought of this.

I'd like to see that book come to life on film!

There have been a lot of great suggestions and as a bonus I now have a pretty good list of books to keep me occupied during the summer!

I just finished one of David Egger's books- Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever? which would make a really good psychological thriller.

The Coldfire Trilogy by CS Friedman. This series is fantastic despite falling off a bit in the last book. Angela Bassett as Ciana, Jason Isaacs for Gerald Tarrant (that snarky magnificent bastard). Casting Vryce is hard for me, physical imposing, weather-beaten, but still kind and caring.

Even though the world is kind of steampunk/magical most of the effects could be done practically. Plus, it has a LOT of moral ambiguity for a story that's nearly thirty years old now.


Armor - John Steakley. Would be a DREAM for me, power-armored disposable soldiers versus nine-foot antlike monsters on an impossible desert planet.

It's like Pork Chop Hill, Shane and Unforgiven all got together and had a baby. A beautiful twisted baby.

Yes, we were selling tribbles at our booth at a Con, and Gerrold came by and told us we had to stop selling them. So I quickly changed the cards to "Martian flat cat'. When Gerrold came by with a Con staffer in tow, he read the sign, his face got red and he stalked off. The staffer thought it was hilarious.

Riight. You don't think the man who owns the rights to their name and likeness might be a bit upset because of all the dealers that were ripping him off? By the way, how much did you pay the Heinlein estate for the right to sell "flat cats"?

None, they didnt ask for any.

You know, you have a handful of unemployed college students making a hundred bucks selling their handcrafts over a con weekend to support their fandom, and you're talking "rip off", right?

The girls made the money, i didnt make a dime from the tribble/flat cats.

Not for profit fan-run cons are the only ones I have ever gone to since the 70's-it's no excuse for copyright infringement, and neither is "they didn't ask for anything".

Possibly not a feature film, but more an American version of BBC's "Mystery." The one I was thinking about is the delightful series of mysteries featuring,"Mr and Mrs. North."They are pretty much set in the '50s (and written during them too by the Lockridges). It's sort of "I Love Lucy" meets "Madmen" and Nick and Nora Charles with George Burns and Gracie Allen thrown in for good measure.

I have no idea who could pull off the characters, especially the wife, but I would love to see the attempt. Maybe Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston could get back together.

Ellen Raskin wrote two children's books that are literary powerhouses. One, a Newbery winner was made into one of the crappiest films of all time, but it was such a departure from the book, that it's almost fair to say that no one has truly made a film of the book. I'd like to see a mini-series of The Westing Game. There's too much material for a film. Also, it needs to be set in the 70s, not "updated." It's too bad no one made it while the late, great Jerry Orbach was alive, because there’s a perfect role for him. The Westing Game I’d like to see as hour-long episodes with approximately two chapters per episode. It could easily play out in a season that way.

Raskins equally good, but a little scarier (which is maybe why it didn’t win an award) is The Tattooed Potato: and other clues. It would also only work if it were set in the 70s, the time it was written in.
Last, I’d like to see a really creative production of The daughter of Time Obviously, you can’t just have voice-overs for everything. When Grant reads The Rose of Raby, or Brent reports Stillington’s announcement to the council, it would need to be dramatized, and good transitions that made it easy for the viewer to follow. But I can see lots of opportunities for opening up the book, while still communicating the “prickles of boredom” that Grant initially felt which got him on the journey in the first place.
