Upcoming Book-To-Movie Adaptations
I just saw Catching Fire today and it was a really great movie! It’s is one of the few books that translated really well onto the screen and I actually think the movie may even be better than the book. I did a post awhile ago on adaptations here, but today I’d like to share with you some of the upcoming movie adaptations from books that I’ve read.
- Divergent (Veronica Roth). I was super excited the moment I heard about this one, because though I knew things would be changed, it would make a great movie. After reading Allegiant, I have no interest in the series anymore and am not sure if I want to see the movie.
- The Giver (Lois Lowry). I’m interested to see how they pull this one off with the whole no colour thing.
- The Maze Runner (James Dashner). I’m probably the most excited for this one! It should be an awesome and creepy movie!
- The Graveyard Book (Neil Gaiman). Not really sure how this is going to work, but ok!
- The Scorpio Races (Maggie Stiefvater). A movie cannot possibly accurately capture this book and I really hope it doesn’t get messed up
- The Raven Boys (Maggie Stiefvater). This could work, but I’d be very critical of whoever they cast 😉
- Shiver (Maggie Stiefvater). I’m pretty indifferent at this point.
- Wake (Lisa McMann). This one should be cool!
- Uglies (Scott Westerfeld). I have high hopes for this one. The plot should translate well to the screen as well as all the tech.
- Shatter Me (Tahereh Mafi). Beautiful book, should work great on the screen.
- The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern). This could either be brilliant or awful and I really really hope it’s the first
- Matched (Allie Condie). I love this society and all the poetry. The book has great visuals that should translate nicely to the screen.
- House of Night (P.C. and Kristen Cast). I would have been excited for this one a few years ago but the series has seriously gone downhill. The movie’s likely going to be annoying and not stand out from other vampire movies.
- Blood Red Road (Moira Young). Love this book! Not quite sure how it would work as a movie but am super exciter anyhow!!
- Artemis Fowl (Eon Colfer). I read these books a long time ago but think there’s some potential here.
