Wondering what books will be made into movies in 2013? Here's the scoop on some of the biggest movies based on books.
Nicholas Sparks' movies
often draw new fans to his books. The books and movies are often romantic and sad with a sense of morality. Safe Haven
is the story of a woman with a dark past who arrives in a small North Carolina town and intends not to form close relationships. Of course, love ensues and the past catches up with her. Safe Haven
is set for release in February 2013.
Twi-hards don't need to despair in 2013! There may not be another Twilight
movie, but Stephenie Meyer's book, The Host
, is being converted into a film that will be released in March 2013.
The original movie of Stephen King's debut novel, Carrie
, came out in 1976 and is a classic. Carrie
tells the story of a teenage girl with telekinetic powers who is an outcast with a deep need for revenge. The remake comes out on October 18, 2013.
Orson Scott Card's 1985 novel, Ender's Game, is finally being adapted into a movie. There are some changes to the novel -- the actor is supposed to be 12, not 6 -- but the director says he is a big fan of the book and kept much of it intact. Ender's Game stars Harrison Ford and hits theaters November 1.
When I saw The Hunger Games in March 2012, the thought of waiting a year and a half for another movie was almost unbearable. I think many other fans will be thrilled to see how the film adaptation of this saga continues in Catching Fire. The movie is set for release in November.
