It appears that my agency-buddy Jim C. Hines is on the way to Harry Potter style stardom… or not. Seems the press has gotten the idea that a movie is going to be made based on is new (and very good) book The Stepsister Scheme. But according to Jim–and I don’t believe he’s blowing smoke up our skirts on this–there is no such thing in negotiation. But if there were, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
And that makes me think… what books would I (or you) like to see become movies? (Aside from mine.) I read so few books I enjoyed in 2008 that I’d have a hard time picking one, though I thought Nicholas Pekearo’s The Wolfman would be kind of nifty as a Dark Fantasy Crime movie. Some books are really not great film material or couldn’t be done well, others might do better as TV series but not film. So what book that came out in 2008 would you like to see made into a film?
