When Hollywood's not rebooting old ideas, the other place they mine is the bookstore. The next tome to get the movie treatment is Jennifer Egan's The Keep, which will be directed by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Niels Arden Oplev. It joins the ranks of a whole host of books currently being adapted for the big screen, and fans of Egan's thriller are either delighted or groaning right now.
We all know that, most of the time, the movie version of a book rarely does it justice, but in some cases, a movie can live up to its source material (and sometimes be better). With that in mind, are there any books that you think would make great films?
