Book to the big screen
I want Shiver to become a movie so badly! The wolves would probably be a bit CGI but it wouldn't really ruin the film for me. I think seeing Sam and Grace's romance on the big screen would be so sweet
Never to the big screen
Now this book is entirely different. I would love to see one of my favourite books played out in film, but having Skulduggery Pleasant become a film could be really disastrous. Unlike with the wolves in Shiver, having the creatures in Skulduggery Pleasant be CGI would possibly ruin the whole thing. A lot of the creatures and people within the book are paranormal or fantasy, so it would be hard to create them through make up and costumes alone. I'd be worried it would end up super unrealistic and distracting.
What would you think if either of these books were set to be filmed? Would you be excited, or would you fear disappointment?
