BTT: Lights, Camera, Action!

Tami inspired this week’s question:

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

Or, What book do you think should NEVER be made into a movie?

These days just about anything can be made into a movie, what with CGI and all. Even books that don't seem like they should be movies are being made, like He's Just Not That Into You. There are limitless possibilities.

One book I've heard rumours of a movie deal is Outlanderby Diana Galbaldon. I think anyone who reads that book has their own image of Jamie Fraser. Who could ever play him? Everyone has their own opinion. I'm not sure how I feel about Outlander becoming a movie. It's a big book as well. It might make a better mini-series.

If you read Outlander, who do you think should play Jamie? Claire? Frank/Black Jack?

Suggestions for producers? Yeah, stop changing the endings of movies. It's very confusing and disappointing, if you've read the book. I hate that.


  1. I really wonder what will happen when/if the Outlander movie is released. I think it would be really polarizing based on the popularity of the series and all that they'd have to toss.

  2. I cannot answer your question; sorry. Here's my response:

  3. It's been so long since I read Outlander that I can hardly remember what my image of Jaime even was. He's a big dude? Right? With red hair? Hmmm... I'll have to ponder. Do we even have any big dude actors with red hair?

  4. No matter who plays Jamie and Clare and Jack, I'll be at the theater watching the movie!

  5. If Outlander is made into a movie, it's one I won't watch!

  6. You can see from the comments that people have very different ideas of whether or not Outlander should be adapted! I, for one, would be there to watch, but wondering how much they were going to ruin it.

    I would love to see Gerard Butler as Jamie - and yes, I know he's too old now - and Jack Davenport as Frank/Jack Randall. I posted about it on my BTT today - with pictures. :)

  7. maybe the kay scarpetta series? that could be interesting...

  8. I started to read Outlander years ago, but I couldn't get into it for some reason.
