5 Book to Movie Adaptions We Can’t Wait For

The year is almost halfway through, but thankfully there are so many exciting adaptations happening the second half of 2019! Here are the one’s we are most excited for:


1. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Judi Dench and Josh Gad are set to star in the adaptation of Artemis Fowl. Set over the course of eight books, the first features our hero Artemis after he kidnaps an elf-fairy and holds her for a hefty, hefty ransom to help build back his family’s fortune. His dad, who is also a criminal, has been missing for quite some time as well. This sci-fi, fantasy tale was first published in 2001, and it was a hit amongst middle grade and young adult readers. It is astounding that it took this long to get the movie, but we can’t wait for this one to come out August 9th!


2. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

Kristen Wiig and Cate Blanchett are set to star in this adaptation when it hits the big screen on August 9th! The story is that of an anxiety-plagued mother, who hates everyone and everything until one day she caves from the pressure and suddenly packs up and leaves. Everyone, including her fifteen-year-old daughter, are left trying to figure out where she went and why she left. The book was originally published in 2013, and it was nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award for Humor.


3. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

When this book came out in 2013, it was impossible to not see someone reading it on the train or overhear someone else talking about it. The book was an instant success, taking home the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2014. Ansel Elgort and Luke Wilson are both set to star in the feature film this coming October. The story takes place over a decade, focusing on the coming of age of a young man whose mother dies from a terrorist attack in an art museum. This paves the way to a series of unfortunate events in his life, including moving in with his alcoholic father and stealing prized artwork. What I’m saying is if you haven’t read this one yet, make sure you get to it before this hits the big screen! It is a doozy.



4. The Rhythm Section by Mark Burnell

This is the closest we will get, for now anyway, to a female James Bond! After her entire family dies in a plane crash, a woman discovers that this was no accident, but a premeditated terrorist attack. She decides to leave her life of prostitution behind and become part of the Intelligence Agency. She becomes the assassin she needs to be in order to avenge her family’s death and take out every last person involved with the attack. Blake Lively is to star alongside Jude Law in this juicy thriller, set to hit the big screen November 22nd!


5. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

You may be in the camp that says we don’t need another Little Women adaptation, but what if I told you Emma Watson was set to star alongside Saoirse Ronan and Meryl Streep? The star-studded cast is sure to make for a great film on its own. Add in the truly beautiful story Alcott penned in 1868 and it becomes irresistible. Taking place during the Civil War, it tells the story of four sisters, Mary, Jo, Beth, and Amy, as they make their way through childhood and into the next stages of their lives, dealing with the good, the bad, and the ugly. It is one of the most heartwarming tales, and I can’t wait to see what these beautiful women do with the story!

No one can really understand a person. No matter how close the two are, once there’s something, there’s something. I am a mystery thriller lover because I see in these type of film the lesson usually punches me on my face when the truth is revealed, heavily and fiercely. We don’t want our lives to be misty and bloody as thrillers-watching the thriller is a good way to broaden our perspectives.





The debut of A Simple Favor: Film will be on September 14. See you in theaters!
