Read the Book First

In 2012 film adaptions of both bestsellers and classics will feature all-star casts and well-known directors, reports The Huffington Post ("The 10 Most Anticipated Book Adaptations of 2012," Jan. 21, 2012). Ralph Fiennes will star in “Great Expectations.” Keira Knightly will play Anna Karenina. Baz Luhrmann is directing “The Great Gatsby” in 3D with Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Toby McGuire as Nick and Carey Mulligan as Daisy. Director Ang Lee is at the helm for a 3D “Life of Pi.”

So, get ready for this year’s crop of literary flicks and read the books first. Here are a few more book-to-film titles in 2012:

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
