Over the holiday, I watched The Hobbit (J.R.R. Tolkien)
While watching the previews there were several other upcoming movies that were from books I recognized:
The Host (Stephanie Meyer)
After reading the book, I thought it would make a great tv series. There seems to be a lot of possibilities for where the new population of the Earth as well as the surviving few of the human population could take the conflict.
Release date: March 29th?
The previews drew me in, so yeah, I'll buy this ticket.
The book Beautiful Creatures (Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl) is also coming to the big screen.
Release Date: Feb. 1st?
If you enjoy dark, tales of witches on Southern plantations--which I do--this is one you will want to pencil in to go to.
Warm Bodies (Isaac Marion) Turns out I read a lot of zombie and pseudo-zombie books. First off--how can it not be funny that a young-man zombie (no pulse) falls in love and is suddenly alive-ish? Full of inner-dialogue for a normal teen-aged guy trapped in a dead body. Everything he thinks comes out in moans and grunts, and it's hard to walk like you're cool when your foot drags. This is a creative, original twist for the zombie genre. High hopes for the movie!
Release Date: Also Feb. 1st?
Here are some of the covers for this book:
Yeah, I think these authors have a good business plan going...
New Year's Resolution: Write a great story,
sell the book, sell the movie rights,
watch my story on the big screen.
