    Shawshank is one of my top rated books/movies. Back to books that I think would make a good movie, River God by Wilbur Smith. Could not get into many of his books, but I think that could be an epic movie. The follow up The 7th Scroll could also do a movie justice if done right.

    Speaking of Stephen King:

    Why Stephen King's Dark Tower Is So Hard to Make Into a Movie

    Update (06/02/15): Since publishing this piece, reports leaked that Sony Pictures is eying Nikolaj Arcel, director of the Oscar-nominated A Royal Affair and writer of the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film, to take the Dark Tower reins.

    I do have a very bad experience with Books becoming movies! A VERY good example is the Hobbit movie series....
    This Thread should be named Books that should STAY books and NOT become movies! Just to keep that vision you have in your mind of your favorite books untarnished by a movie.

    On the graphic novel side, I would love to see a mini-series (or movie trilogy, one could never do it justice) of Transmetropolitan.

    I actually enjoyed Sleepwalkers grew on me after a while and me so scared as an impressionable youth.

    I'd love to see a solid attempt at a Lovecraftian short story..

    Don't know how they get that feeling of dread and helplessness across though...
    That's just like, your opinion, man.
