Also the Republic Commando: Novels
I'd really like the Y: The Last Man movie to actually happen at some point, but deep down I know a movie won't do it justice.
I'd like to see The Quantum Thief, because that would just be really beautiful.
Conan the King (still... waiting....)
A Wizard of Earthsea (not that wretched SyFy schlock)
A Spell for Chameleon
Malory's Morte d'Arthur
A Prayer for Owen Meany (I believe it can be done)
The Chronicles of Prydain (see my avatar)
Elfstones of Shannara
Because upwards of 90% of the Star Wars EU is terrible shlock, and video games are particularly incompatible with story-telling in other mediums like films and novels.
Oh, well that does make sense
Was also gonna suggest a Assassin's Creed but there is one in development with Michael Fassenbender
The Legend of Zelda
History of The World Part II
Jews in Space or GTFO.
Man for some reason I could not follow what was going on in that book.
DO YOU EVEN SCIENCE FICTION BRO?
p.s. if you thought that was a trip you should check out the sequel. hoo boy.
The whole prison in the beginning had me confused and quantum thief went downhill from there. Sad, because you expect a string theorist to have experience in fiction.
I was weirdly just thinking earlier today that I would love to see a cerebral take on the space marine/starship troopers genre. Like "Thin Red Line IN SPAAAAAACCCCCCCEEEEE!"
EBB, you should check out the Honor Harrington series. Space Naval Warfare, politics, religion, philosophy, shifting galactic alliances, and more exposition than one can handle.
I mean, if I wanted literature there is plenty out there (frankly though, never much cared for Honor Harrington). I meant visual arts.
Now that I think about it, pretty much every space opera story Stephen Baxter ever made would be amazing to capture visually, especially the central stuff in the Xeelee sequence.
I hate the fact that this became a legit thread.
Think positively, Amy!
The Glove Of Darth Vader. And that Disney is at the helm, this just might happen.
Some sort of Spiderman reboot.
I'd like to see the remake of Valhalla Rising, only as a musical comedy.
I would love to see Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park films that actually followed the books. Really hoping the fourth movie coming out will be respectable.
