I came across this Goodreads list and I boldly entered two of my own books on the list. The list is a list of books that people believe should be made into movies.
Now, there are two books that I have written that I really hope some day will be made into a movie. I don’t have ANY illusions of this Goodreads list making that magic happen – but it is quietly and nerdily cool to just to think about it.
I have always felt that SINKING DEEPER would make a wonderful true Canadian movie. It has CBC written all over it – back when CBC used to have money-to-burn. Heck, we could even have a guest-appearance by David Suzuki for his near-assassination scene.
As for SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME – well, that of all of my books would make the best darned horror movie you could imagine – something along the lines of FROM DUSK UNTIL DAWN or FRIGHT NIGHT or 30 DAYS OF NIGHT or REANIMATOR.
I also voted for Tim Curran’s HIVE and Robert McCammon’s STINGER – both of which would make terrific creature-feature style movies.
What’s your favorite cheap and cheesy monster movie? I’d love to hear you talk about it.
yours in storytelling,
