Live Poll: Books Deserving a New Film

Books are often a source of inspiration for great movies, but sometimes their adaptations are not well received.

In this poll we look at some books adapted as motion pictures, that received a rating below 6.0

Which of them would you like to see adapted into a new movie that could make them justice?

Oh, I have a whole list of books which I would like to see in the cinema. And it's very hard to choose one. I think that maybe, the most I'd like to see A Confederacy of Dunces (John Kennedy Toole)

@CorrinaKimmel​ ,

A Confederacy of Dunces would make an interesting film. It's not for lack of interest that the book has not been adapted:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Confederacy_of_Dunces#Adaptations

... There have been repeated attempts to turn the book into a film. In 1982, Harold Ramis was to write and direct an adaptation, starring John Belushi as Ignatius and Richard Pryor as Burma Jones, but Belushi's death prevented this. Later, John Candy and Chris Farley were touted for the lead, but both of them, like Belushi, also died at an early age, leading many to ascribe a curse to the role of Ignatius.[17]  ...

This poll is about books that have already been adapted to film, but done so poorly.

The following poll is about books that have yet to be adapted. Sadly, the associated thread for this poll no longer exists.

Great Authors' Books That Are Not Movies: Yet!

There may be room to create an updated version of the "Great Author's ..."  poll that focuses on contributions from poll taker as opposed to poll authors.
