Other Books to Movies

Like Jackie, I'm super excited about the upcoming Hunger Games movie (and totally support her choice of Eddie Izzard as Haymitch (though I think he could also do great as the costume designer :) But in the meanwhile there are a bunch of other cool books and graphic novels being made into movies this summer. I'm totally curious to see how these films turn out:

Beastly by Alex Flinn - A modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast", from the beast's point of view.

Jonah Hex graphic novels by Justin Gray - Old West bounty hunter in a battle between good and evil.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson - Swedish thrillers about a young goth hacker (recommended for mature teens/adults only...this series has some heavy stuff in it.)

Scott Pilgrim graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley - One of my favorite gn series, this has it all...indie bands, awesome fights, video games, and romance!

Beat the rush and order the books today, so you will totally be ahead of the game when the movies come out :)

Maybe Izzard could play BOTH roles!
