Top Ten Tuesday (November 10, 2015)
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch:
Hmmm…probably cheating to say Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens as #1. I’m sure there’s a fan fiction book or something, so I’ll stick with Star Wars as #1 regardless. (Invoking Captain Barbosa’s philosophy on “rules” if necessary.
#2 In the Heart of the Sea – Based on the true story of the whaling ship Essex, which was the inspiration for Melville’s Moby Dick. In theaters next month.
Most of the rest of these are wish list. As far as I know they have not been produced and no one is planning on producing a film.
#3 If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler – This would be a challenging to portray faithfully in film, but I’m sure someone could do it.
#4 The Brothers Karamazov – wish list
#5 One Hundred Years of Solitude – wish list
#6 Nostromo – wish list
#7 Blood Meridian – under development, release date unknown. This won’t be for everyone, think No Country for Old Men
#8 Death Comes for the Archbishop – wish list
#9 Invisible Man – wish list
#10 Heart of Darkness – Not Apocalypse Now, but a faithful rendering of the novel. Either the 1993 John Malkovich version, or there may be a new version in development
