The concept of the big screen adapting written narrative has been quite a debatable topic over the years. While some films have had the opportunity to indulge into a diverse artistic discourse, others have failed to do so. The popularity of this genre of filmmaking is rising year after year and film industries have never missed an opportunity to draw the visual aesthetics of the writing aesthetics. For this list, I have taken into account films which either boast of great or popular books, or the names attached to it rings some exciting bells in our ears. So, without, further ado, here’s the list of upcoming movies based on books scheduled to release in 2018 and 2019. We can only hope that the new movies based on books would be as good as some of the latest ones.
