Q. What book that hasn’t been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?

This is a tough question. Mostly because I really, really don’t like books turned movie. I suppose if I had to pick one, I’d like to see James Rollins’  Sigma Force books turned into movies. When I was first recommended these books, I was told they’re kind of like Indiana Jones in book format. And that’s true. We follow this secret government group, Sigma force, as they “investigate and secure sensitive information that could be a threat to the United States”. However, it isn’t just straight forward espionage and all that. There’s also this element of mysticism. Sometimes things happen that they try to explain via science but really can’t. It’s that element that turns it into something Indiana Jones-esque. You have a fun adventure and a bit of the unexplainable. I think that these books would be great for a nice action, adventure movie.

As for cast … I don’t have a preference really. Just make sure that whoever’s playing Painter is a really cool, hot guy. Since I started off with “Sandstorm” and Painter as my main protagonist, I’ve always had a huge soft spot for him even when he became a secondary character in the later novels.

  1. Movies from books normally disappoint me, also. My canine mind develops images from the printed page that just doesn’t correspond to that of the producer. A lot of full length novel can’t make it to “celluloid” and some invariably ends on the cutting room floor. Two hours normally allow a filmmaker 90-120 pages of books that average 250-400 in length. However, if some film company wants to make a movie of one my human’s books, neither he nor I will object.

    1. Sometimes books end up great movies. But, yeah. Overall, they generally disappoint.

  2. Hopping through. I’ve never heard of James Rollins before. His books sound exciting. I’ll have to look them up.

    1. Haha, like I mentioned in the post, it’s a mystery/thriller series that’s kind of like a cross between a book about espionage/ secret government agencies and Indiana Jones. They’re very good books, and so easy to get caught up in.

      Thanks for following!

  4. I am a James Rollins fan (stemming from his fantasy series written under the name James Clemens.) However, I haven’t gotten into the Sigma Force books yet, but Subterranean is one of my favorites! Thanks for reminding me that I need to pick up the first in this series

    1. Always happy to help. I started with the Sigma Force novels, but did move into the individual ones after. Subterranean was definitely one of my favorite books of his as well.
