    Honestly, any Christopher Moore would be pretty solid.

    Erik Larson's Devil In The White City could make a GREAT movie. Leonardo DiCaprio has owned the film rights for the book for almost a decade now, and Scorsese was attached to the project as of mid-2015, but it doesn't look like there's been much movement from that point.

    I mentioned these in another thread earlier today:

    Michael Herr's book Dispatches was somewhat of an inspiration for some of the characters in Apocalypse Now and Platoon both, but I think it deserves to be made into it's own stand-alone movie.

    I would like to see Tim O'Brien's novel The Things They Carried made into a movie too.

    I'm still in favor of this, but would also like to see Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series on the television screen.

    There was an Odd Thomas movie in 2013 starring the late Anton Yelchin. It had wrapped shooting in 2011but was delayed and never got a big opening or much press. The production team sued the studio about the lack of support for the movie.
    Dean Koontz liked the movie and said it was a good adaptation.

    I saw it and it was okay. I think the story is better suited for TV though.

    This series would be awesome as feature movies or a one hour TV show.

    Two hour feature movies or mini series on TV for each book IN THE SERIES.

    I'd be happy if Baldacci would continue to write this series.

    David Crockett: The Lion Of The West

    It's a fantastic biography that gets into a significantly more in-depth version of his military service during the War of 1812 and his rivalry with Andrew Jackson. Not puffed up like the Disney episodes with Fess Parker. Pretty solid.

    Tom Clancy: John Clark stories which are somewhat intertwined with the Ryan books but could def be a series of movies on their own.

    Thinking like @Jumper_Dad but with Jack Reacher in mind. There are several of these novels I'd like to see made into movies, "Nothing to Lose" comes to mind. However, with a guy that resembles the character in the book. NOT TOM CRUISE.
