Book adaptations into movies are nowadays common formulae. Not that such system of screenplay writing is easier when books are adapted, but such a process of movie making is a tryst to bring the bestselling novels into the public forum. When the authors of high selling novels are got in touch by production houses, they are readily agreeing to such proposals. This is because they get a writer’s satisfaction of being sought after, apart from the fact that they are financially benefited also. Running simultaneously on thousands of screens worldwide, a book gets transformed into a phenomenon, as did the series on Harry Potter or the Twilight series. These are actually books from which screenplays have been borrowed or rather rights have been purchased. Such mass actions have generated a new trend of having huge benefits for the mystery and thriller novelists nowadays. |
• Wanton productions of thrill and mystery genre novels as a profitable box office venture
Making these thrillers into movies is a norm these days and even writers are readily agreeing to such adaptations. With the right price for their creative ingeniousness, many authors have raked in huge moollah from the selling of the rights of their books to be made into movies. Books like Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James and The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas have been recounted many times and have received apt tribute in the silver screen. Plenty of versions of The Count of Monte Cristo have come on to the screen, and each of these movies has gathered attention from the viewers. These are not only classics, but their story telling patterns are worth marvelling at. In recent years, Fifty Shades of Grey has also sold millions of copies worldwide and talks are in full swing to get this trilogy into the theatres. With the book churning out surprises in every page, theatrics of the characters are sure to arouse interest in these movies. Hunger Games did more than average business in the theatres, when it was made into a movie. Similarly, Twilight Series of movies remained in top of the box office hits, after the book series was adapted into movie screenplays.
• New generation novels getting selected for movie productions
Having gathered a strong wave of popularisation, these mystery and thriller genre novels are taking the movie world by storm. These movies are also faring well in the box office, thanks to the amount of inquisitiveness garnered by the books. In the truest sense, the writers are to be given the credit to have touched a pulse among the readers, with their writings. Some of these novels have had their charm since ages and are great works. But, nonetheless, the newer generation books in the genre of mystery and thrill are actually going towards a new trend. Possibly, the writers are matching up to the expectations of the masses and giving suitable plots to their creativity. Along with the innumerable copies being sold, the movies are a proof of the liking of the masses.
