Booking Through Thursday-03/12/09

What book do you think should be made into a movie? And do you have any suggestions for the producers?

I really think Bel Canto by Ann Patchett would make a wonderful movie. Don't think it would be a blockbuster, but done well, it could win a few Oscars. Unfortunately, the director, that I think should direct it, is no longer available. Robert Altman passed away three years ago. Did you ever see Gosford Park? Amazing! This style of movie is exactly what I see Bel Canto: The Movie being.


  1. I ADORE Gosford Park. It's one of my comfort movies. As such, mybe I should check out Bel Canto.

  2. Great response to that question (love Bel Canto).

    I also love the transition to film process, and I've gotten close a couple of times with a few of my own books (another potential deal is currently being kicked about).

    Oh, I'd be so happy to lose myself in that film space for awhile.

  3. Gosford Park is one of my favorites!

  4. Loved Gosford Park! And I think you're right about Bel fact, I thought I heard years ago that Ann Patchett had sold the rights, so you never know!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
