Potential Books to Movies?

Making a movie based on a book is nothing new. In fact, in 1924 one of the first film adaptations, Greed was made based on the novel McTeague by Frank NorrisGreed.  Initially over 9 hours long, the footage was cut and cut some more. Eventually when released, the silent film was a mere two hour remnant of it’s original. So much of the story had been eliminated, the box office version didn’t make sense and flopped.  Subsequently, portions of the film have been restored, making the now four hour film, into what some consider one of the greatest films ever made.

Listed below are some of my favorite book series. Their authors created amazing stories, amazing characters all in amazing surroundings!  I can only imagine how engaging these stories could be if transferred onto the big screen. Unfortunately, many incredible novels haven’t successfully made the transition from pages to screen.  My list of ten book series below, I believe, have potential to manifest into remarkable movies or even television series….I must admit however, I loved these stories so much and I am afraid to risk wishing for a conversion of these scripts from paperback to picture show for fear of their demise.
