They Say It Can't Be Done

ScreenHead posted this list of the Top 13 Unfilmable Novels a few days ago, so enjoy if you haven't already.

In addition to the books, they also name the director who might could pull it off, for example:

Unfilmable: Catcher in the Rye
If Anyone Can Do It: Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach

Not to quibble with them, but I think I'd pick David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls) over the Coen Brothers for Dunces. That's just me.

Thanks for the link! That was interesting... it's funny how many of those I've read and loved. I must specialize in unfilmable novels.
