Books I’d like to see as movies, tv shows or miniseries

I absolutely love mini series, tv shows, and movies based on books. I love mini series more then the movies. Syfy is now working on an awesome mini-series called Neverland, and I honestly, cannot wait to see it. I have loved last miniseries Syfy has done, such as Riverworld.

Here is a lists of books / series I’d like to see developed into film, that deserve to be:

The Giver by Lois Lowry This is a trilogy, (yes… a trilogy, if you haven’t read the sequels, I suggest you do it now). There has been a film on IMDB marked in production for years. I’ve seen it change from release in 2007 to 2009 to 2010 to 2011 and now 2012. I just freaken want an awesome The Giver film, or miniseries. Hell, even just the first book would be awesome.

The Giver is a world that is completely controlled by their city, their society, and their government. Beliefs are so highly regulated, nobody is allowed to be different. This would be a great movie, if someone can somehow do it.

The Abhorsen Series by Garth Nix Outside of the United States it is known as the Old Kingdom series. This series is about a girl whom grows up in a foreign country that borders her home, Ancelstierre. Ancelstierre is a land of technology, and modern education, math, science, and literature. Up to the north is a country known as The Old Kingdom. There is a giant wall that borders the two countries. In The Old Kingdom magic is alive, roaring passion of magic, and dead rising. The magic does not work in places like Ancelstierre’s southern places (but locations by the wall it does).

This series is a bit complex to throw in a summary. But, if you have not read it. READ IT. This series would be a freaken awesome miniseries. If this were ever to make it as a movie or miniseries, I think Syfy is the most likely studio to do this. But, lately they’ve been focusing on classics, and books written long ago.

Dune I didn’t like the 1984 movie. It needs to be redone, and perhaps not as boring?

Planet of the Apes Why hasn’t this been remade yet?

Well. I cannot think of any others, as most of the series I have enjoyed have already been made movies. Are there any series you’d like to see done as movies?

  1. The whole Inheritance Cycle (a new Eragon needs to be done desperately – then Eldest and Brisingr), all the rest of the Chronicles of Narnia. 😉


  2. Man, if it is done properly, The Giver as a movie could be fantastic. And definitely agree with you on the remakes of Dune and Planet of the Apes.
