Can I make it into a 10 or 13 episode mini series on HBO instead?

David Lynch would direct it and nobody would fucking understand it; as per usual. Actually, that's a match made in obscurity heaven, right there.

Actually, as I was thinking about this I realized that I don't read that many series and the ones I have read (even those last two I mentioned) have at least some movies based on them.

One snippet of an example of why I love Codex Alera.

"I ever invade Calderon again," he said, "it will be in the summer."
Isana stared wearily at him, and said, "I'd see to it you never got those sweetbread cakes you like. Ever again."
Doroga gave her a wounded look, sniffed, and said to Walker, "Alerans don't ever fight fair."

I think the Percy Jackson books could make a good series of movies. Too bad their first attempt didn't live up to the promise (IMHO, anyway). I can't believe they are making a sequel.

I'd like to see a movie made from at least the FIRST book of the "Magic Kingdom for Sale" books. I really don't care if it turns into a series if they get that one right.

I know it's been done a few times, but I think annother crack at "of mice and men" would work well. The last film is a bit dated now, and I think a more mature and darker version would work well. Maybe a scene of Curley hitting his wife would be a good add in. Then again, I probably think this seeing this is one of the only books I know of.

Lots of speculations and rumors, but no concrete plans yet. It could be a goldmine if done correctly:
