Question of the Week
How would you pitch to the biz to make your favorite book into a movie? via Girl of a 1000 Wonders
Hmmmmm…..how would I pitch to the biz to make my favorite book into a movie?
*holy crap, I have to pick a book?*
First of all, I would have stop reading because the next book I read will be my favorite. Next, I would have to pick a book which would take a lot of research and time and energy. Honestly, how do I choose? I have to pick just one, but there are a dozen or more genres out there that I love. How could I choose one over the other? Next, I would have to figure out a sales pitch, but we all know that by the time I would have gotten the first and second thing done, the “biz” would have grown weary with waiting. So my answer, to save everyone time, heartache and frustration would be that I wouldn’t pick a book. Nope, can’t do it. It’s too hard and I can’t choose. Sorry..
Hmm… Well, Outlander is already on Starz, and Mists of Avalon was done very poorly several years ago. True Blood… ug. “WTF” is all I have to say about True Blood. It SO wasn’t what I was wanting to see out of the Sookie Stackhouse series. So, what would I pick next? I would like to see what Ronald Moore would do with Mists, frankly. I’m impressed with Outlander so far. I think Paula Brackston’s books would make beautiful movies if done well. I’d like to see a reboot of the Dresden Files. SyFy’s attempt brought me to the books, they cast it beautifully, and there were a lot of things I liked about it, but the adaptation could have been better. I’m always wary of turning books into movies because of all the things that have to change. Sometimes, I wish they would just leave the books alone rather than ruin them completely. I’m a purist book snob, I know.
