BOOKS AND THE FILM INDUSTRY

Over the years, I have noticed a pattern regarding the relationship between books and the film industry. The film industry has made many adaptations of books since its founding. However, they only seem to focus on best-selling books while leaving millions of other books to fade into obscurity. From a business perspective, this would make sense because a best-selling book means more money for the studio. Also, the film industry has become so desperate for new films that they have been recycling old movies into remakes. Meanwhile, there are countless hidden gems amongst the millions of books that the film industry continues to ignore. I think if the film industry is in need of new movies, they should develop a system that would allow some of these obscure stories to have their chance to be on the big screen. Should a movement or petitions be made that would allow these obscure books a chance to become films? Only time will tell.
