Coming Soon to a Theater Near You...Classic Books

Our superhero summer looks to be almost over as I recently noticed how many classic novels are scheduled to be released as movies in the coming months.

Most of these have already received cinematic treatment, but I guess Hollywood has decided that it's time to give them another go round with fresh faces and some new interpretations.

If you're a "read-it-before-you-see-it" type, I'd suggest getting started now before the hype reaches its peak.  This could also be a great reading list for any book club that likes to read the books then attend the film together.

What other movies based on books are you looking forward to?  David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas maybe?  Cronenberg's take on Delillo's Cosmopolis?

I'm looking forward to The Perks of Being a Wallflower, starring Emma Watson; Director Stephen Chobsky, who also happens to be the author of the "classic" YA novel.

Wow, I knew of some of these, but didn't realize the true scope of our upcoming "classic" opportunities. Thanks for the great must-see list, and I'm happy to say I've read them all!
