Having spent most of this month watching films for a challenge, some based on books, this feels especially pertinent. Today we're coming up with Three Books That Should Be Made Into Movies ...
- Un Lun Dun by China Miéville - I've already said before that this would be a perfect film for Hayao Miyazaki to make. It has the fantasy and girl power elements that he does so well.
- The Amelia Peabody books by Elizabeth Peters - A few years ago, Jodie Foster bought the film rights to the books but it doesn't seem that anything ever became of that.
- The Meaning of Night by Michael Cox - This would be a great neo-Victorian film thought I would be worried about it being turned into too actiony of a film.
And one that I wish they would remake and actually follow the plot of the book is Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
Willing to watch the movie but not promising to love it,
