as a fan of sci fi i have read most of the great and many of the not so great books i have been give it some thought in recent times about which one would make the next big film epic and i think that ARTHUR C CLARKES RENDEZVOU WITH RAMA woud fit the bill a few years ago it would have been hard to do justice to the many bio-bots thst the book mentions but with today CGI ithink it could work what do others out there think

Morgan Freeman's production company did have the rights to Rendezvous with Rama a few years back, and he was talking about a movie version. But it seems to have gone quiet.

Not exactly a blockbuster, but another clarke novel, a fall of moondust, would make a great disaster movie.

I have long thought that the book that is craving for a big budget rendering of it's stunning visual imagery and tense story line played out by strong strong characters is Perdido Street Station (China Mieville).

Directed by Sir Ridley Scott.

I think that the Honorverse would make a better Tv series than film series, but we need something better than "meetings with death by Powerpoint" for exposition in the later volumes.

I'd suggest Charles Stross' near future crime novels "Halting State" and "Rule 34".

The Star Wars book, DARTH BANE: PATH OF DESTRUCTION would make a great film.
