Topic: What's left to be adapted?
Since CG began with T2 the early 90s and especially with LOTR, where basically anything the writer/director wants to realize can be done if you throw enough money and digital artistry at it, what are the great works of literature yet to be adapted?
Obviously DUNE needs a modern epic treatment, but what else?
What about Homer? Troy (Directors Cut) was a decent start, but it could have been a trilogy with The Odyssey starring Sean Bean as Ulysses and ending with Virgil's The Aeneid and the foundation of Rome.
Greek myths e.g. Jason & the Argonauts? Hercules was done last year, although all the 12 labours were quickly dealt with in the prologue. There's Ovid that could be mined and some plays such as Oedipus.
The Bible is slowly being given the modern epic CG treatment with Noah and Exodus and The Passion. What else? Jonah and the Whale? Book of Revelation?
Science Fiction: Asimov's Foundation series (too cerebral)? Robot series? Lensman? Rendezvous with Rama?
Fantasy: Belgariad? Majipoor? Dragonriders of Pern? Earth's Children? Saga of the Pliocene Exile by Julian May (& Galactic Mileu), Stephen Donaldson's Thomas Covenant series?
History: What about great events in history? Anson's 1740-44 voyage around the world. The French Revolution. Pizarro's conquering of the Incas (or Cortez and the Anztecs). The great Haitian Revolution slave revolt. Alexander the Great was too much to digest for one Oliver Stone movie, so needs to be redone at some stage. The great voyages of exploration (Polo, Magellan, Drake, Cook, Franklin, etc) would be interesting as tales of survival. Great wars? Great revolutions?
