    Almost every time I read a new book, I always wonder how long it’ll take to become a movie/for a studio to buy the rights. In your opinion, what book do you think should be made into a movie next, that hasn’t been already?

    The Tournament (by Matthew Reilly) I believe it has already been bought though. 1Q84 (by Haruki Murakami).

    I don’t know a dire tor brave enough to touch Reservation Blues. That book is a story of Native Americans that try to become Rock n Roll artist, and they have incredible encounters.

    Two novels from Micheal Chabon (“Wonder Boys”)

    The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, would be a perfect film adaptation for the Cohen Brothers

    The Amazing Adventures of Kavielier and Klay, would be perfect for either Spielberg or Villeneuve

    They’ve taken SO MUCH time doing A Confederacy of Dunces, that a biopic of John Kennedy Toole has just been announced with Susan Sarandon, Diane Kruger and Thomas Mann as Toole. Even that happened first. I don’t understand why it’s taken so long, why it’s been so hard. It doesn’t look like the most complicated of adatpations and yet nobody gets on board, they’ve already lost Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis.

    The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is a dream of mine, I started reading it agaih, but a film seems difficult and long. Stephen Daldry tried forever and gave up. Natalie Portman was everybody’s choice for the female lead, now she’s too old. I never understood why HBO, for example, didn’t take it as a miniseries, it makes more sense to me like that. Don’t really care for Spielberg doing this, though Villeneuve sounds like a great choice.

    The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao also seems like a great film too. Apparently Miramax had the rights and lost them already. That’s how long it’s taken.

    “The Interestings” by Meg Wolitzer. I see that Amazon tried this as one of their pilots that failed, which is very sad. Lauren Ambrose was the lead, which was a great casting choice there as Jules. This story is epic enough for film treatment and deserved better.

    It needs to wait a while because of so many similar projects having been made, but a tv show could happen?

    I could see a premium network like ShowTime or HBO picking it up as a miniseries like Big Little Lies.
