There are very few times in my life that I have enjoyed the movie adaptation of a book. Of course this book would be great on screen, but only if the creators can stick really close to the actual script in the book.

Great idea! But I think this book as a tv show would be even better! It has the potential to be very episodic.

Definitely this will be a good idea for a film. The basic idea of knowing the death date is a good and innovative idea for a movie. Making of it can make alone as a movie(Ican see the movie parts in my head right now). And being a thriller,every part can be included in a movie without any cutoffs. :lol:

I always love seeing how books turn into great movies. Sometimes, however, the movie is very limited to the original plot of the book. I believe that is what would happen in this case. Therefore, for now, using our imagination to work up a "movie" in our heads, is probably our best bet for Final Notice.

I think given the right actors it could work well as a movie. Some of the romantic scenes between Vijay and Jennifer might have to be cut because I feel like they wouldn't add much to a movie but most everything else could stay.
