10 Classic Sci-Fi Novels That Need To Be Adapted Into Movies
Left Hand Of Darkness
This Ursula K. Le Guin novel follows Genly Ai, a human who is sent as an envoy to the planet Gethen, where he must navigate their vastly different culture. With political intrigue, insight into our preconceptions of gender, romance, and gripping adventure, this story is incredibly well-suited for film.
The Blazing World
Margaret Cavendish’s book features an unnamed protagonist who finds herself lost in a utopian world populated by anthropomorphic beasts. This imaginative work full of talking animals, arctic exploration, and naval warfare is a thrill, and would be perfect in the hands of a director like Guillermo Del Toro.
The Sirens Of Titan
Kurt Vonnegut’s sophomore novel revolves around a businessman who is given a prophecy by an omniscient space explorer, and while trying to flee his fate, gets caught up in a Martian invasion of Earth. Both hilarious and heartbreaking, this could make for a truly wonderful sci-fi movie.
“We,” written by Yevgeny Zamyatin, is about a spacecraft engineer who lives in an authoritarian dystopia defined by mass surveillance and the worship of logic. We’ve already seen adaptations of the stories “We” influenced like “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” so why not go back to where it all began?
Octavia E. Butler’s “Kindred” follows Dana, a young Black writer who begins to flit inexplicably between modern day Los Angeles and a 1800s Maryland plantation. This novel offers a unique take on a story that has rarely been done justice on the silver screen, but perhaps it’s time to change that.
