3 Novels That Deserve Their Own Movie

It’s no secret that oftentimes, movies don’t do books justice. However, new technology has made it possible for movies to portray books in way that wasn’t possible before. Now, sets can be transformed into whole new worlds through special effects and creating otherworldly characters through astounding costumes and special effect makeup.

We’ve thought of a few books that we’d like to see made into movies:

  1. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

After the astounding Handmaid’s Tale series based on another of Margaret Atwood’s eerily accurate dystopian novels, it’s safe to assume if done properly…the MaddAddam trilogy could be a huge hit.

  1. The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker

This debut novel was most definitely a hit. Tech, and especially women in tech, is a very popular theme today. With the right director and actors, the story of two women who work in the male-dominated field of animation while they aim to complete their first movie could end up being quite the Hollywood hit.

  1. The Studio by John Gregory Dunne

In 1969, Dunne asked 20th Century Fox for unlimited access to the studios. Believe it not, his request was granted. According to Newsweek, Dunne’s novel is “Extraordinary…a portrait of the Hollywood ethos, that gothic mix of greed, hypocrisy, shrewd calculation, mad hoopla and boundless optimism”. But who could expect anything less from the auther of Monster?
