Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch
I’m gonna go with 10 Book to Movie adaptations that I’m looking forward to, even if it not in line to happen as of right now.
1. Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)
This one is in the works! Dreamworks has the rights to the movie, and everything appears to be moving forward, but there still isn’t a director or any cast associated with the movie.
I think this will be a fantastic story for the big screen 😀 and I honestly can’t wait to see it (whenever that might be).
2. Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda (Becky Albertalli)
This was just announced the other day, this is definitely going to happen, well, at least the rights were sold, so, fingers crossed.
This is one of my favorite books of the year, so I’m super super super excited that it might make its way to the big screen. I can’t wait to start hearing something about the casting 😀 .
3. The Rosie Project (Graeme Simsion)
This will be a fantastic movie! Director Richard Linklater was attached to the project a while back, and so was the amazing Jennifer Lawrence.
I’m curious to see who they’ll get to play Don.
4. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (J.k. Rowling)
This one is so close, the first movie of the trilogy will be out in a little over a year.
The screenplay adaptation was written by J.K. Rowling herself and it stars the super talented Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander.
And, come on, Harry Potter universe!
5. Mockingjay (part 2) (Suzanne Collins)
It’s almost time for the last part of Mockingjay to hit the theaters and I can’t wait.
I think that The Hunger Games have been super well adapted to screen, and that is a rare thing.
So, I’m super excited to see the last instalment later this month.
6. Inferno (Dan Brown)
Confession time, I still haven’t read this book, but I read all the others of the Robert Langdon series, and I love them.
And I also liked the movies, they are always super watchable 🙂 .
So, I’m waiting on this one as well, scheduled to hit the screens in 2016.
7. Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard)
This book has been optioned by Universal Pictures and I hope they hurry up with it already, because I want to watch it badly!
Elizabeth Banks was even connected to the project, being pinned as director – and I would very much like to see that, because Elizabeth Banks is amazing.
8. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs)
Again, I still haven’t read this book – it was on my TBR last month, but I failed, I just wasn’t in the mood for it.
I’ll try to get to it before the movie comes out next year, because I’m so excited about this adaptation… Tim Burton is directing, people!!!
9. Ready Player One (Ernest Cline)
Once again, this has been in my TBR for a while, and it will likely remain there for a little bit more. This movie is set for December 2017, so I still have plenty of time.
Steven Spielberg will be at the helm, and so far, the only actor attached to the project is Olivia Cooke (from Me and Earl and Dying Girl). I like her a lot, so I’m happy about this.
10. Angelfall (Susan Ee)
Now, this is more of a hope right now. Back in 2012 this book was optioned for a studio, and at some point had director and some cast attached. But it has been 3 years and no more news came up. At this point is safe to assume that it might not happen, at least not now. It’s a shame, because this would turn out to be an epic movie, Penryn is a true female hero, and I would like nothing more than for my newest OTP to be on the big screen.
