The question of the week at Booking Through Thursday is: What book do you think should be made into a movie? And do you have any suggestions for the producers? Or, What book do you think should NEVER be made into a movie?
Immediately I can think of two books that would make great movies if handled properly by screen writers, producers, and directors:
1. The Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace (Ok, so more than one book... but if a Kevin Sullivan type producer were to turn the series into a mini-series like Sullivan did with the first two movies based on the Anne of Green Gables series, it could be great!)
2. The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne (I recently saw Confessions of a Shopaholic and I think this book could make for a great chic-film/romantic-comedy like CoaS did.)
And in saying this I realize that there's not likely to be a Betsy-Tacy movie, but I still think there's a chance for The Little Lady Agency. We'll see.
