L.Ron.Hubbard's Mission Earth books would make a awesome movie too.

Or better still, a 10 series epic. Netflix could do it it. Awesome books and very funny.

I'd like to see a remake of "The Running Man" but more like the novel and less like the Arnold Schwarzenneger movie.
The plot of the book was that Ben Richards lived in this dystopian city with a wife and sick daughter in a world where the economy pretty much collapsed.

Richards can't find work and can't get medicine for his daughter so he signs up to take part in a federally run game show. He ends up being selected for the most dangerous but also most high paying game show they have, "The Running Man". Î

In this version of "The Running Man", the player is labeled as a enemy of the state and can go anywhere in the world. He is given a 12-hour head start before a bunch of assassins start chasing him. If he can survive for 30 days, he gets a billion bucks. But the longest record was over 8 days.

And people get to join in at home by reporting his location if they see him in exchange for a cash reward.

This game show actually existed back in the 90's here in the UK. We could call the show and win prizes if the hunters found the contestants.

Nobody died though. It was called Wanted, you can read more here

They could make a movie about pitching a "deep" movie to a closed minded mega studio.
The whole story can transistion between psychodelic metaphor(of what the movie maker is thinking) cGi cutscenes and real life.
It could be a satirical comedy.

If you're thinking that way, I suggest you watch Battlefield Earth, son.

Pretty much anything by Raymond E. Feist, preferably the serpent war saga though. I love that monk and his endless bag of apples... or oranges... w/e it happens to be that day...

@#$% LOTR...


Midkemia MUST be brought to the small (or big) screen....

And Pern..

Both would make awesome television, if kept as close to the books as possible...

A nice shiny Star for you good sir for being the first to mention Nakor, and the Conclave..

Hmmm, so many ideas.. where to begin??

All Feist's books into a series..
Pern, series..
Dark Tower Movie/s..(apparently coming...)
Rama books would make great movies.. can you imagine the interior of that
ship on the big screen??

TekWar would make a good series imo.

an updated version of Last Starfighter would be awesome..

Contact, remade the way it should have been....

Ringworld books, made by Monty Python.... hmmm....

Arthur C Clarke: Pretty much anything (yeah, i already said, but Cradle and Songs Of Distant Earth would be ok...

Theres a couple of more books, but cant think of their titles atm

I'd like to see House of Leaves. It would be tough but I think it can be done.
