What series of novels would you like to see being made in to a TV series or even films? 
 
With things like Rome, The Tudors, Spartacus and Game Of Thrones being very popular in recent years I think it would be a good time to have and adoption of Bernard Cornwell's Warlord Chronicles (The Winter King, Enemy Of God, Excalibur) if the myth of King Arthur had any bases in real life then this is surly how it would have went down, probably the best adaptation of Arthurian Myth ever. 
 
The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King being turned in to a film trilogy with a tv series filling the gaps has been talked about for ages and I for one wish it would hurry the hell up  
 
Ian M Banks Culture Series of novels could be an awesome space epic that would replace the bad taste that recent Star Wars productions have left, if it was done right

It is sad, all the books that I've read have been made into movies, or soon will be.

Eh, a bit. Definitely played a small part in it.

I would love to see someone develop a series based on Leviathan Wakes.

Also, seeing as I just finished Brubaker's Sleeper series, I would want to see HBO or Showtime attempt to develop that.

Yes! Affleck is supposed to be directing it. If they turn it into a trilogy of some kind it could be really fantastic I think!

Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles could be neat.

The Lab. Pretty awesome sci-fi book that'd make for a pretty good movie.

Yeah, but one of those movies sucked..and there's so much lore in her books it could easily make a series.

kresley cole's immortals after dark series is an hbo series waiting to happen. It kicks true blood tush, the series is WAY better than the sookie stackhouse books
