Books on the Big Screen


There are so, so many great books coming to big and small screens alike the end of this year into 2020.  Here are a few that caught my eye:



The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - Nicole Kidman is in this upcoming movie due out this September.

Little Women by Louise May Alcott - It's coming out this Christmas and Emma Watson is in it along with Meryl Streep. I feel like there's been a lot of Little Women adaptations lately. Wasn't there just one last year on PBS?




 

The Call of the Wild by Jack London - It's due to come out in February and Harrison Ford will be in it!

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - Lily James, from Downton Abbey fame, is going to star in it and it will be on Netflix. Hopefully I can read this classic before it hits the small screen.




 

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer - Judi Dench is in this Disney adaption and it is out May 2020.


The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett - Colin Firth (!!) is in this family friendly movie due out April of 2020.  




 

Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke - This animated movie is coming out in 2020 and Patrick Stewart is providing his voice along with Felicity Jones. 


Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie - This classic mystery will hit big screens on October 2020.  Gal Gadot will be starring in it.







The Witches by Roald Dahl - This classic children's book will be hitting the big screen on October 2020.  Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Chris Rock, and Stanley Tucci will all star in it. It sounds really promising!


The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn - Amy Adams, Julianne Moore and Gary Oldman are staring in this thriller, which is due out in 2020.  





 

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty  - This book will be adapted for the small screen and will star Nicole Kidman. It will be on Hulu late 2020.


Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng - Joshua Jackson, Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon are all promised to star in this TV series with Reese and Kerry co-producing. It will also be on Hulu in 2020.  





 

Fear Street series by R.L. Stine  - This old school teen horror novels will be adapted for the big screen and it's due out in 2020.  The 90s teen in me is thrilled! 


Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli - I love that this YA novel is coming to the big screen in 2020.  Spinelli is a local (to me) author and I've been a fan of him for years!




  


The Witcher by Andrezej Sapkowski - Thank you TV Gods for casting Henry Cavill (swoon!) in this TV adaptation coming to Netflix in late 2019.  This show has been getting a lot of buzz and comparisons are being made to GoT.  Perhaps I should read the bestselling book ahead of time? 

P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before 2) by Jenny Han - This sequel is coming to Netflix in 2020. I am excited!





Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn - This romance series is being adapted by none other than Shonda Rimes. Julie Andrews is attached to it (!!) and it will be on Netflix in 2020. I love the Regency Era England, so this seems right up my alley. Will this fill my Downton void? Fingers crossed. 



Which books are you most looking forward to being adapted for TV or movie? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I am pretty excited for P.S. I Still Love You, love the first movie! I have The Woman in the Window sitting on my shelf, I really need to read it before the movie comes out.

    1. Me too! I really enjoyed the first movie as well. The Woman in the Window was a lot of fun - had a Rear Window/Hitchcock vibe to it. Thanks for visiting, Jenea.

  2. There is so much great content nowadays, it's hard to keep track of! There are definitely a few in your list I am looking forward to. I can't wait until the adaptations of Beatriz Williams' and Elin Hilderbrand's novels come out. I also just read that Recursion by Blake Crouch is possibly being adapted into a movie and a TV series.
