top ten tuesday
posted by soe 1:51 am

Technically, this is Monday’s post, but as I write so late at night, no one else will recognize that my answer to The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday topic isn’t appearing exactly when it’s supposed to…

Top Ten Books-to-Movies We Just Can’t Wait For:

  1. J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Did you see the photos that were released last week?
  2. Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park: She’s writing the first draft of the screenplay herself.
  3. Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Okay, so I didn’t read the book (although I was given a copy as a gift), but the previews really do look like a lot of kick-ass fun.
  4. Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus: I wonder if they’ll film it in black and white (and red).
  5. Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: There are a lot of big names attached to this film, not the least of whom is Tim Burton as director. I liked the book right up until the end, when I discovered it wasn’t a stand-alone, and I’ve unreasonably held that against it since then, but if the previews look good, I might be willing to get over it.
  6. John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson’s Let It Snow: IMDb informs me some filming has already taken place for this interconnected trio of YA romance stories.
  7. Roald Dahl’s The B.F.G.: This is my favorite Dahl title, and I hope Steven Spielberg won’t mess it up.
  8. G. Willow Wilson’s Ms. Marvel: They pushed the release date back on this earlier this fall, partly, I fear, because there remains some doubt about interest in a female-fronted superhero. God, I hope Supergirl is doing well enough to kill off this stupid industry belief once and for all.
  9. Beauty and the Beast: It’ll star Emma Watson and Ian McKellen.
  10. Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book: Apparently this got pushed back, but Ron Howard’s been attached to the project as director.

How about you? Any literary films you’re looking forward to?
