Books to Movies - What’s in the Foreseeable Future?

I don’t know about anyone else, but I truly enjoy reading the book before I see the movie whenever possible. I thought I’d let you know what books appear to be coming in the foreseeable future to the silver screen.  Please note the dates of movies are always subject to change and are not written in stone. If a movie only has a year behind it then the exact date is yet unknown. For those slated for 2011 without a specific date, I’d guess they are the most likely to get pushed back at least another year. So how many can you read before the movies come out? Is anyone up for a challenge?

  1. Ohh! I didn't have any idea some of these were going to be movies. I'm so excited about The Forest of Hands and Teeth!!! I read that this month and absolutely loved it. I even thought it would make a good movie.

    Is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo the American version? I couldn't get through the Swedish one. I've been waiting patiently to see how the Americans do it. I have a feeling I'll really like it!

  2. I had no idea either until today. I just managed to come across the information and decided to list it.

    Yes, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the American version. I was told the Swedish version was very good.
