Never mind but the truth is that it is never going to work as a movie. No feelings and subscripts

It's amazing what they make into films. I mean I never thought they would make the book Where the Wild Things Are into a movie, but... So I say anything can work as a movie...
Thats very true, anything in the right hands can become something extraordinary. I love adventure stories, so this could really be something.

I think this could be a good movie. The scenery would be exquisite.

Anything book can be made into a movie by slight modifications so why not this one

I love adaptations, but the idea of a book I really like getting turned into a movie makes me a little scared. My expectations will be too high and then when I see the movie I'll be disappointed. It would be like the Mortal Instruments all over again.

I could really see this as a film. From the beautiful landscapes to the flashbacks.

Honestly, I think it would be better on screen than it was as a book. I think a lot of the excess stuff - like the detailed nautical voyages - coudl be trimmed down and be more exciting to see rather than hear. Basically, I think they would be able to do a good job of cutting out the fluff and bringing the vivid words to life.

Of course, with the right cast, director and a studio that honours the book .

Oooh I'm so interested in the idea of a film adaptation now having read your comments. I love the idea of flashbacks to help with editing. As long as they're not overused I feel like they work seamlessly in so many films. I wonder where they would shoot this to capture the scenery in the most accurate light?

Honestly I think this is a really potential book... Some books shine better just being books while others make exotic movies...This book I believe is good as it is but a movie may even compliment it and make it excel to new heights! This would be a great adventure movie, where pages come to LIFE! :techie-reference: :techie-reference: :tiphat:
