We’ve already covered 5 books that should Hollywood should bring to the big screen. However, it’s not enough because the literary world has published some of the most compelling stories ever told. There are always rumors of a popular book’s copyright being bought by Hollywood. Instead of letting the news sit in the rumor mill for too long, I say they carry out the idea and let the actors bring to life our much loved literary characters.

Below are more books that should definitely be turned into movies:

The Dark Tower (series) by Stephen King
There’s a reason why King makes this list twice, and that reason is because he’s the king of horror. No one can weave a more terrifying story than Kig does. With The Dark Tower, he takes it a whole different level with 8 books comprising this series. It’s about a gun slinger and his physical and metaphysical journey towards a tower. There are talks about a movie but nothing is made concrete.

Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Curious how there’s very few movies based on Vonnegut’s works. He’s one of the best writers who ever lived, and his stories are always interesting and witty. Cat’s Cradle has the elements of apocalyptic suspense and dry humor that will be reminiscent of the classic Shaun of the Dead. Leonardo di Caprio apparently wants to make this movie, but that was 2005 and there were no news since.

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
The movie Simon Birch is loosely based on Irving’s classic, but there’s still a need for this movie to reach the big screen. The rich story of friendship, love, and self-acceptance gives heart and character to this book. Hollywood is in desperate need of more movies with heart, and they can start with this book if they want one.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Probably one of the greatest tragedy, we may never get to see Salinger’s timeless piece be adapted into a movie. When he was alive, he refused every movie deal and made sure that it won’t be made into a movie even after his death. Holden Caulfield is one of the most iconic characters in fiction, and it’s a shame that we will never see him in the big screen.

Hollywood the Game, Free Online Game

With Hollywood the Game approaching its ten year anniversary, we thought it might be fun to talk to a player and get their perspective on the game and playing it. Built around a community of movie fans and writers, Hollywood the Game blurs the line between a simulation game with a full interactive city and a writer’s workshop where people get feedback on their scripts and see how they play to an audience of their peers.

Here is with Golithus had to say about being apart of Hollywood the Game (aka HTG):

One of the few reasons I enjoy games immensely is because of its ability to bring me to another world, to experience something that’s unlikely to happen to me in real life. One day, I stumbled upon Hollywood The Game (HTG) and curiosity draws me deeper into exploration. At first glance, it’s huge, it truly is a virtual Hollywood, with its own map, studios and other movie business stuff. I was impressed, so I joined.

Some consider HTG a platform of writing, a place where they can put their creativity and writing skill to use; some consider HTG a gaming experience, a mix of simulation and tycoon. While those are very true, I consider HTG to be more than that. HTG is a community of like-minded persons from all around the world, shaping a little Hollywood of themselves. In a way, it is kind of like a mix of Second Life or The Sims that focuses solely on the movie industry.

Players can truly shape the world here, be it writing the next big hit, create an impressive movie franchise of your own, or even push your favorite underrated star into the A-list. While the game is mainly about making movies, it’s not the only thing to do in the game. One of my favorite aspect of the game is the variety of careers, I can be a journalist that follows the life of people in the virtual Hollywood, or perhaps a grumpy critic that is hard to satisfy. If you want to express more than word, be a graphic artist and design posters. Heck, you might even find inspirations in the game for your real life project.

Hollywood The Game is not without flaws; it has a fairly steep learning curve and progression can be slow. With patience though and you might find HTG to be a fun place to stay.

You can check out Hollywood the Game for yourself here and join in for free.
