While mine isn't as prolific and artsy as the vast majorities here -- But I'd love to see "Dan Frontier" imagined on film for children and young adults.  I've, not ashamed in the least to admit it, got the entire collection and hold them very dear.  They are a huge part of my childhood and while many of them are written for the average 4 year old, there were some that had really good characters and stories inside them.  These were also the longer in the series too.  Very memorable to me.  And, in some small way, I believe they helped me write a better "Coffin Canyon".   Without that series of books I probably wouldn't have been near as interested in Westerns.

I think you cast Ryan Reynolds as Dan Frontier, toss him in a bear skin coat and give him a large knife -- Call it "DAN & THE WILD FRONTIER", slap a Disney logo on it.  Thing would be huge.  I'd love to write the script.

It's al about the Front, man.  The Dan Front.

Quoted from dogglebe
The New Gods is arguably Jack Kirby's greatest comic book work.  It's too hard to describe in a few words, but his story of the battle between good and evil on the planet Apokolips is richly detailed and entertaining.  While created in the early 1970's, making a movie would be impossible without today's CGI technology.

What a coincidence!  The powers that be are introducing the New Gods on Smallville tonight.  I'm guessing Darkseid will be the big bad this season.

Books by Gary Shteyngart. I just love his humor and social critique. In particular, I would love to see Absurdistan. It would be a lot like "Snatch". "Memoirs of a Russian Debutante" has a lot of potential too.

* Dreampark (Larry Niven)
* The Stainless Steel Rat (Harry Harrison)
* Short Circuit (Melinda Snodgrass)
* The Rainbow Cadenza (J. Neil Schulman)
* Transmetropolitian (Warren Ellis)
* Hellblazer (Warren Ellis) (The REAL damned thing, not Constantine...)

Oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please.

And remake V for Vendetta, while you're at it.  Stupid Hollywood screwups...

I really want to see Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta novels as film. I think Angelina Jolie has been cast as K. Scarpetta already, but I'm not sure which book will be filmed or if it's a brand new story written especially for the film.

Also anything S. King of course. I think The Dome is going to be a series though. I suppose that might be best since it is a rather long and rich book, but I HATE TV series.

J. A Konrath's Jack Daniels books would be cool too. Horror and a bit funny too.

Quoted from Oney.Mendoza
Remember "Catcher In The Rye" by J.D. Salinger(?)? It was like a mandatory book in the 11th/12th grade. That was an awesome book and I think it would be a great film that most teens would enjoy and could relate to. It's touching, disturbing, exciting and fun.

Salinger went out of his way to ensure no adaptations could be made of his book. Now he's dead, who knows?

Off topic a little - yesterday saw a DVD of a film called "Tomorrow, When the War Began". It sounded like a remake of "Red Dawn" (teenagers struggle to survive as invaders attack), but it turns out to be based on a series of YA books - which I have never heard of.
