30 books being made into movies

Some people hate it when their favourite book gets picked up by Hollywood. Not us, we love seeing our most cherished novels brought to life – apart from when those numpties behind a camera (or in front of it) cock it up of course.

But let’s give the creative types in Tinseltown the benefit of the doubt for a moment. What follows are 30 books all set for the big screen treatment. Some have finished filming and are due for imminent release; others are in that tricky development stage, and one or two are still at the rumours stage.

We can’t wait to see each and every one. And if you want to appear smarter than the average bear, you know what to do. Read the books… NOW!
