    Lord of the Rings, fortunately based on a well-conceived and popular world, was a successful film adaptation. One of very few Fantasy novels turned film that received a large budget and well-known director and actors.

    If you could nominate a novel to be adapted to film, which would it be? Would it be a big budget movie? Feel free to suggest Director, Actors, Writer, etc.


    Note: No, I do not believe the budget makes the movie but I also don't believe it hurts it.

    This question opens so many possibilities.

    I would choose Wheel of Time: Eye of the World, with a limitless budget.

    Director: Ridley Scott
    Screenplay: Adapted by Brandon Sanderson (why not?)
    Cast: Eddie Redmayne (Rand), Christopher Eccleston (Al'Lan) & Dame Judi Dench (Moiraine)

    Must by scored by Hans Zimmer, and filmed in Scotland.
