Books That Should Be Made Into Movies

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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!

This book was already a cartoon - Ajkloth

22 Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
23 The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon - Steven King
24 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!

25 The 7th Victim - Alan Jakobson

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

26 Crank - Ellen Hopkins

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

27 The Goose Girl - Shannon Hale
28 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.

29 Envy - Sandra Brown

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

31 The Night Itself - Zoe Marriott
32 True Colors - Kristin Hannah
33 The Demonata Series - Darren Shan

Any of Darren Shans books would make a good movie

34 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 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!

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 Travel Team - Mike Lupica
40 Island of the Blue Dolphins - Scott O'Dell

Already made into a movie many years ago, but deserves an updated version.
