Books That Should Be Made Into Movies


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Frantic - Katherine Howell

Very interesting and intriguing story. It could have been a great Thriller/Mystery. The main female character is a very cool and desperate personality. I like her - Irina2932

Frantic would make a great movie, thoroughly enjoyed it to read, love to see it on the screen.

Awesome crime novel that just unfolds in front of you exactly like a movie! I can't believe it hasn't been made into one already. Her other books are just as good too.

22 The 7th Victim - Alan Jakobson

Very interesting, intriguing and even shocking book. The ending blew me away. I didn't expect it - Irina2932

23 Crank - Ellen Hopkins

Any by Ellen Hopkins honestly! But I personally like Tricks and Identical better than crank.

24 Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

There is no way they can stretch the story so much it would last 2 hours. It may be a little entertaining, but the book itself is no more than 40 or 50 pages (I think). Besides, the story itself wasn't all that good, unlike the Lorax and Horton Hears a Who!, which both got turned into movies. Maybe a different Dr. Seuss book could be made in a movie, just not Green Eggs and Ham.

The other Dr. Seuss movies are awesome and this book is AWESOME! I think they should make The Cat In The Hat Comes Back. I also think if they made The Island of the Blue Dolphins, Miranda Cosgrove would be the perfect actress because she looks a lot like the character in the book.

Agreed! And you can get both Johnny Depp & Jim Carrey to star!

Please Illumination

25 The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon - Steven King
26 Wolf Totem - Jiang Rong

Chen Zhen, a student from Beijing, goes to live with the Mongols on the grassland and discovers how much they respect and learn from wolves.

27 The Dark Tower Series - Stephen King

I so agree with previous comments. Very cool and interesting books. Stephen King is The King. I hope they make the movie but I guess they are afraid of comparisons with the books - Irina2932

deserves higher
amazing series, though slightly disappointing ending
would love to see the movie - philosnav

My favorite books though it would be hard to make a movie from it. - slbrown

These are actually getting a movie next year I think - Username123

28 Dante's Inferno - Dante Alighieri

There was already a movie made in 1935 but it sucked and is due for a remake... great part of the Divine Comedy series.

If it turns out anything like the video game, we're in for quite a ride!

29 Envy - Sandra Brown
30 The Goose Girl - Shannon Hale
31 The Night Itself - Zoe Marriott
32 True Colors - Kristin Hannah
33 The Demonata Series - Darren Shan

When I was a kid I wanted to grow up and become a movie producer so that I can make this series - pouria_mt

Any of Darren Shans books would make a good movie

34 Skulduggery Pleasant - Derek Landy

Great book Derek Landy deserves a chance at movies and it is such a good book makes a definite good movie

It would make a good movie because there's so much action and it's so funny!

I agree its brilliant can't put it down but this should be no1 it rules go Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain and Tanith and Ghastly and China and Sanguine and Fletcher and everyone

Landry should be the screenwriter too

35 I Am America (And So Can You!) - Stephen Colbert

Best Book Ever and it would make the best movie ever! - crazyeyes56

A documentary about Colbert? best movie ever - ThisSiteSucks

36 The Ice People - Barjavel

This classic sci-fi novel (1968) screams to be made into a movie. La nuit des temps. A terrefic read.

37 The Catcher In the Rye - J.D.Salinger
38 Candy: A Novel of Love and Addiction - Luke Davies

The image literally says "now a major motion picture". - BeatlesFan1964

39 Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Picoult

Peter Houghton was bullied since he was 5.

He had no friend.

He has been stripped naked infront of everyone.

And people kept on calling him homo and freak.

One day, he went to school and killed 10 people and injured 19 others.

People call him a monster.

I believe he's a victim.

P.S. this novel should be made into a movie so that bullies out there will know how their action can destroy someone's life! - Fazrin

I read this book and cried so much because just wow. If this was made into a movie, it could be so so so good!
