I love film adaptations! Even if I don’t like them, I always find it really interesting to see how other people imagined my favorite books. And I am definitely one of those people who must read the book before seeing the movie. Which is why I still haven’t seen The Help. Or The Shining (though I did just finish the book, so I can totally watch the movie, now). Below are some movie adaptations being released in the next few years that I am really excited about!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. Is there anyone who isn’t anticipating this movie? This series one of my favorite movie adaptations. I think they did an amazing job adapting the books! And I know this movie is going to completely destroy me. I’ll have to remember to bring some tissues.
Macbeth. This movie looks amazing! I can’t wait until December 4.
Ready Player One. December 2017 seems so very far away. Steven Spielberg has signed on to direct, so it should be pretty damn great.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Set for release in February. Starring Lily James and Lena Heady (and Matt Smith is playing Mr. Collins). It’s going to be so horribly good! This is my kind of campy horror.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I mean, it’s J.K. Rowling. I’ll take anything I can get. Plus, I’ll pretty much see anything with Eddie Redmayne. Plus, have you seen the pictures?!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. This cast looks incredible! Allison Janney and Asa Butterfield in a Tim Burton movie? Yes, please!
The Rosie Project. So far, this just has a director and Jennifer Lawrence signed on to play Rosie. But I’m really excited about it! I’m curious to see who they cast as Don.
Inferno. I’m glad they skipped The Lost Symbol, because Inferno is definitely one of my favorite Robert Langdon novels. I might just have to reread this one soon – it’s been a while.
Me Before You. I haven’t read the book yet, but I am planning on reading it before the movie comes out. This is another amazing cast – Emilia Clarke, Sam Clafin, and Matthew Lewis.
The Girl on the Train. I think this book is going to make a great movie! Emily Blunt plays Rachel, the unreliable, alcoholic main character.

What movie adaptation are you most looking forward to?
P.S. While doing research for this post, I discovered that Jumanji is being remade, and set for release next Christmas (which I guess counts for this post, since it is technically based off of a book). I’m still not sure what I think about this. The original Jumaji, with Robin Williams, was such a major part of my childhood. And, I don’t know, this feels a little disrespectful somehow. Like, I’d be kind of upset if they tried to remake Dead Poets’ Society. Let me know your thoughts on the Jumanji remake in the comments – I’m really curious to see what other people think about it.
