So if Hollywood should be making "new" movies instead of re-hashing "old" content, the question naturally arises as to what stories are "ripe" for being made into a movie(s). Below are some suggestions. Each of these series consists of 3 or more books (except for Smith), so Hollywood should be able to get a log of mileage out of them.
1. C.J. Cherryh - Downbelow Series.
2. Jack Chalker - Well World Series and Soul Rider Series.
3. Jack Vance - The Dying Earth Series, The Demon Princes Series, Alastor Series
4. A. Bertram Chandler - The Rim World Series
5. Cordwainer Smith - The Rediscovery of Man
Several years ago, I did attend a discussion where Orson Scott Card talked about the studios wanting to make Ender's Game into a movie. Evidently that fell through due to artistic differences. Card believed that the changes proposed by Hollywood would diminish his story. Clearly we need to protect the integrity of any stories that are brought the big screen.
As an aside, Jack Vance should receive the Noble prize for literature.
Any more suggestions?
