Top 10 Books That Should Become Film Trilogies

The second chapter of Peter Jackson's enhanced trilogy based on THE HOBBIT, THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG looks to amp up the events of the first movie while supplementing the story with J.R.R. Tolkien's additional appendices. Once the third and final film hits theaters next year, studios will be on the lookout to make the next big trilogy of films. The best place to look would be in published literature, especially fantasy, where there are a number of series primed and ready for the silver screen. Here are the top ten books and series that should be adapted as trilogies for the big screen. If your favorite didn't make the list, make sure to add it to the talk backs below.

Mistborn

Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy could be very interesting and the rights to it are available (as of February 2014). He has a strong cast of characters, an amazing world, a self contained first novel and interesting twists that continue the story after the first novel. A mood trailer from the previous owners of the rights has been released onto youtube [link] and I really hope to see Vin and Kelsier unleashing their abilities on the big screen. Since this could be a broad reaching audience

Since this could be a broad reaching audience I hope someone picks it up, I could see fans of LotR, The Hunger Games and many of the movies referenced in the mood trailer to go see this.

Roger Zelazny's Amber

Though it would probably fare better as a series on something like HBO, the 1st five books of Roger Zelazny's Amber series (Corwin's story) would be awesome to see on big or little screen. I'm hoping that since George RR Martin was a friend that sooner or later someone will pick it up. A few years ago I know SyFy looked at it but wasn't able to do anything with it.
