1327Re: [Clive Cussler fan club] Movie
- Jan 20, 2009The fact that no matter what book they make into a movie, wether it is a CC
book or any other author, it is never going to live up to fans of the book's
expectations. Nor if they made a movie that did stay faithful to the book
would the movie make any $$. The reality is that the two worlds of fan desire and
Hollywood $$ don't meet. Rarely if ever do books translate to the big screen
in the intricate detail and intricacy of a written novel. Things like author
ego (CC suffers from it) to Hollywood CGI mentality stand in the way of that
Most of CC's early books (IMHO his good ones..) would be 5-6 hour epics to
get all the plot points, etc that would make a fan happy. And that would never
happen....you want a true to the book screen adaptation...push for a mini
series..or have Tom Hanks get HBO interested.......
That said, my vote for screen adaptation would be "Night Probe"......
