It is amazing to see the level of film interest in books/cartoons/nostalgia these days. We used to discuss film to book novelizations and vice versa in our editorial meetings, and it's always a fascinating discussion. They're definitely hugely more frequent in the last ten years or so. Sure you had the classics translated to big screen in yesteryear, but what's the reason for such levels of this now? Is it simply commercialism? The fast-paced urgency to get a ready-made idea on screen? Or is it simply because there are so few good ideas left?
Someone leave a bandwagon round here?
