      Since seing Expendables I have thought that despite being too tall, that Dolph Lungren would be a brilliant Butler for Artemis Fowl!

      Noughts and Crosses is a superb book, they should definitely adapt it into a film! I remember reading a book series by Meg Cabot, I think it was The Mediator series? Very cool books, and I've heard that theyve been picked up for a film?

      Charlie Higsons' teenage James Bond series would make a good series onscreen

      I was once recommended a book called Lord Loss and although I didn't finish it I remember that be quite good. Also met an author called Andrew Lane at this s****y place where I used to clean tables. He had written a series of young Sherlock Holmes novels. One that definitely needs a mention, although not exactly the next Harry Potter is a film adaptation of Private Peaceful - which is apparently now happening :)

      There would be something amazingly referential about Radcliffe cameoing in any film of Cassandra Claire's books, given that she's arguably best known as a Harry Potter fanfiction author who hit the big leagues.

      The Bartimaeus trilogy is also something I'd love to watch on the big screen, as long as it doesn't end up like the Golden Compass or Inkheart, both of which were rubbish films and awesome books.

      How have I only remembered this?! Steven Gould's Jumper and Reflex would make amazing films, that is of course so long as a director like Doug Liman doesn't hack it up again...

      The Skulduggery Pleasant series of books are brilliant because - like the work of Philip Pullman and unlike the work of J K Rowling - they don't talk down to children/young teens. Landry's books don't sanitise the story by removing any mentuion of violence or blood, if someone gets stabbed, they bleed. The movies would I imagine be aimed at a similar age group to the fanbase of the books, so I would think a 12 cert would be the best we could expect. This would mean that most of the things that make the books so good would have to be cut from the film and we'd end up with another series of twee kids films that play at maturity like Harry Potter.

      im sorry but none of this is true about skulduggery pleasant Abigail Breslin isnt going to be valkyrie due to the fact derek landy was strict on having an irish young girl which has yet to be decided, large rumours and IMDB confirmed that johnny depp is going to be skulduggery pleasant and Temuera Morrison should be ghastly watch his films and you will all see why.
