ghostgirl - Tonya Hurley
Apparently, it's being directed by Matthew Vaughn, who also directed the movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust. If he does as well on this as he did on Stardust, I have high hopes for this movie.

I saw on some online list of upcoming movie adaptations of books that this would be one of them, as a CG animated movie.
I have two questions about this:
1) How would they include elements like the Flip-O-Rama sections?
2) Why now? I mean, I'm pretty sure the Captain Underpants craze ended ages ago, when the original young fanbase started to grow out of that kind of immature humor.

Fallen - Lauren Kate
To be released in 2015.
186FleetStreet's rating:
The good news is, it was released in 2010, and it features two of my favorite actresses, Rachel Hurd-Wood and Phoebe Tonkin.

The bad news is, I've only seen the DVD regionally available in Australia, which means I can't watch it here in the US.

186FleetStreet's rating:
The 2007 re-release (also known as "Blink") alluded to a movie in development, but I've found no IMDB page for the movie.
186FleetStreet's rating:
There've been rumors of a film version of this third book in the Robert Langdon series. As of yet, actual production seems iffy, since "Angels and Demons" seriously didn't do as well at the box office as "The Da Vinci Code."

Oh, wow. The movie version of this has been in development hell for so long that I actually forgot that they were even considering it.

Movies I want to see, based on books, that have been in and out of development hell, or have been cancelled.
