I always thought David Eddings' Elenium and Tamuli series would make cracking films.


The Belgariad and Malloreon by Eddings would also make a good film series I think. I always preferred them to Lord of the Rings.


Ah, but the Sparhawk books are more comical. Everyone enjoys a good defenestration.


That's a terrible thing to do to a man!

Haven't read the Belgariad & Malloreon yet, they've been on my 'to read' list for years!

Mine would be the Emerald Eyes (Continuing Time) series.

The author wrote it in 1988 but was a programmer so his tech views were on about par for the future time lines may go.

I'd love to see a couple (OK, a lot) of books made into movies (heck some might be better as a mini-series on TV)

Ringworld - Larry Niven
Last Centurion - John Ringo (get used to this name)
Live Free or Die - John Ringo
The Posleen War series (quite a few books, not listing all of them) - John Ringo
I'd love to see a decent movie based off the old boardgame / book series BattleTech...
BOL: Adventures of a DBA - Microsoft Press

When the first Artemis Fowl book came out, there was a secret code in the book that was supposed to be an entry for a walk on role in the movie adaptation. Years later, I am still waiting for the movie.

I have long felt "In The Net of Dreams" is an under-appreciated masterpiece, and would be an awesome film, if done right.

The DC comics character "Static" (originally Milestone, but migrated into the main universe) was strong enough to support a multi-year animated series, I think he could support a feature film. And then tie it into the JLA movie.

I don't think it could be a movie - maybe a HBO show or something - but I'd love to see the Foundation series adapted well. Tricky one mind you.

I
f you liked the Posleen War series you would probably like the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. But either of these would be better as a TV series. Some of the books are thick.

I actually left of the Honor Harrington books (got almost all of them so far) because there's talk of adapting the second book, "Honor of the Queen" to a movie already.


Article I read on it (I'll try to find it tonight) indicated that after looking at the first book, speaking with David Weber, they decided the second would work better as a movie.

I think a mini-series based on Arthur C. Clarke's four "Rendezvous with Rama" novels would be interesting, so long as it's not a low budget Syfy Channel job, and if they plan it out properly to conclude from beginning to end in a single season.

I can't see it translating to a movie - a TV series would probably fit better.
Oh and don't let the producer of I Robot anywhere near it. I prefer that movies of books actually resemble the book.

Would love to see the Flinx novels by Alan Dean Foster or David Brin's Uplift War done though.
